I think pizza at the hotel sounds great.

I’d do pizza at the hotel, especially because neither of the restaurant options are good! I notice that your wedding is soon, would a BBQ be an option? Its casual, but not quite “pizza in the hotel lobby” kind of casual. Also – do you or FI have any “hoity toity” relatives that might turn their noses down at pizza in the lobby? Maybe thats why FMIL is hesitant.

I vote for pizza! I live in a small town as well and our reception was at the local township hall. Our rehearsal guest list was around 30 people too. We ordered a variety of pizzas from the restaurant in town and took it to the hall after rehearsal (we decorated after dinner). Everyone loved it! It was fun, it was casual and it was inexpensive. We didn’t have to pay for or rent another space and it was only $200 for 13 pizzas and we had a TON left over. People were taking whole pizzas home at the end of the night.

I vote for grocery store catering in the hotel breakfast room!

I would get a pasta tray, a couple of salads, and a sub tray (and a big thing of cookies!)

It’s SUPER cheap, and it will more than feed your guests, for a VERY affordable amount!

Don’t feel bad for his parents wanting to pay – it’s traditional, they probably know that and expect to pay, and it could be wayyyy more than $400!

I agree with BrandNewBride’s suggestion on catering from a grocery store or from a restaurant, pizza and subway are not your only options.

we’re just grilling at a house for it. Buying pasta salad from the deli and making it really simple. If that isn’t a choice then I vote pizza.
