The possibilities are endless, and we make it easy.

Let us make it clear…we support the LGBTQ+ community as well as weddings for everyone, and we know that no matter who you’re marrying, planning a wedding can be overwhelming. You want to create a unique experience for you and your soon-to-be spouse that you’ll remember for the rest of your lives. You want to do something different; think and play out of the box, but also find solid ground with your family and friends that lies somewhere between traditional and one-of-a-kind.

At Cookology, you cook and dine together in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Our bridal party packages offer a variety of options from a relaxed, mixer-style bash to hands-on, interactive cooking sessions and elegant dinner-style events–there’s something for every bride.

Each package features gourmet dishes created by our award-winning professional chefs, and our fantastic wines add to a tasteful celebration.

Let us handle all the details of your event (instead of bar hopping, we bring the wines to you), or customize your experience by adding your own theme (like a kitchen party where guests bring cooking gear to stock your new shared digs). The possibilities are endless, and we make it easy.

Available at Cookology in Ballston Quarter and Dulles Town Center!

Chef's Table Rehearsal Dinners

A new family coming together for the first time can be a beautiful thing during a rehearsal dinner, but how do you get people to find meaningful conversation starters in a restaurant setting? It’s difficult.

At Cookology, conversations are sparked by the dishes and wines: your favorite comfort food, where you’ve traveled, the fabulous bottle of vino you enjoyed on your patio last weekend.

After you’ve finished creating your meal and enjoying your incredible dishes prepared by the chef, you and your other half, hand in hand over the din of family chatter, lean in and kiss each other. He whispers to you, tomorrow is going to be beautiful, and you know exactly what he means. Tomorrow is going to be the beginning of the rest of your lives with each others’ family, and so far it looks like everything is as it should be. Perfect.
