    rosecut:  I think it may be a cultural thing to go all out for the rehearsal dinner. We will just be having a backyard BBQ. I’ll already be all nerves, I don’t want to go through a very formal thing.

    rosecut:  We had a July 4 BBQ. It was AWESOME. No one had to dress up – we all just got to hang out – and people stayed way later than they would have if it had been a formal dinner at a restaurant. It was so much fun!

    ours was very low key- we just picked up a bunch of pizzas and went to my parents’ house. it worked out well because my reception was in my parents’ yard so we were able to eat and visit and do last minute prep at the same time.

    We haven’t gottent this far yet, but I’m hoping for a low country boil (the Southern version of a clambake) or a bonfire bbq.

    Our rehearsal dinner (backyard BBQ) was so low key that we forgot to rehearse for the ceremony that was to be held in the same yard the next day!

    rosecut:  I’m the last of my siblings to get married. Both my bro and sis’s rehearsal dinners were very low key. Mine will be the same. Pizza and wings at the venue and a little bit of decorating for the wedding the next day.

    rosecut:  Ours will be SUPER infromal. We’re going to the church to rehearse then to the hall with close fam and the wedding party to decorate for the next day. We’re ordering in pizza, wings and salad.

    Casual, fun and productive! I’m excited to just hang out, no pressure, with the people closest to us.

    We are inviting all wedding guests to a “welcome picnic” instead of a rehersal dinner. It will be a picnic in the park with hot dogs, salads and dips and stuff. After we take a short walk to the horse stables and those interested can go on a horse ride for half off.

    We plan on having a very small, informal RD at a nice restaurant. Just parents, possibly grandparents, and the bridal party (which is four people) and dates. I have better things to splurge on

    I am planning to have a low key-rehearsal, hopefully it works out that way! We are booking a room in a Hawaiian tiki restaurant and we’ll have different fish tacos and Hawaiian/Asian-fusion foods, people wearing leis, tiki drinks. It’s starting early, we only have an hour and half… just thank everyone and grub down!

    My fiance and I are having a backyard BBQ at my parent’s house– It fits more with our personality than a big restaurant dinner. We’re really laid back, along with our families. We want everyone to be able to relax and mingle, since it will be the first time our extended families meet!
