@JacobsMama:  We hosted a BBQ at our house for our families and BP (and their partners). It was really fun, and the first time some of them had met (my mom lives on the other side of the country). Food was good, company was even better. It wasn’t expensive, and everyone enjoyed themselves.

We were just planning a little pizza/beer rehearsal dinner, but on the day I was too hungover to function…oops.

Everyone was  happy to do their own thing in the end, so all was well.

We are doing our rehearsal the night before the wedding and we will be having homemade lasagna and spagetti made by my MIL and yours truly for the rehearsal dinner.  The entire rehearsal is at the beach house we are staying at and getting married at.

We will be doing pizza, beer and wine the night before at my Dad’s house, just a small gathering.

FIL and MIL hosted a rehearsal dinner for us. They made all the food, so it was very simple sandwiches, baked potatoes, and an array of salads and chips. Very lovely and delicious.

@JacobsMama:  I was thinking maybe one of our fav bars. it has a nice diner area. Or maybe something at home, if its in summer mts. BBQs are always nice, and my people love them. Thats when i would hand out gifts for the wedding party

We are doing a dinner at a gastropub nearby the church we are getting married at but everyone is traveling for our wedding. Nothing too fancy, food is burgers, sandwiches, fish and chips type stuff. 

I think if you can do something it’s nice, it doesn’t have to be anything super fancy. RDs come in all types. I have seen people do pizza or sandwiches and other have a super formal platted dinner.

We’re doing a full-on rehearsal dinner at a local restaurant. We went this route because: our parents live out of state, our home is too small to host a party that size in, and it’s winter so we can’t use our back yard for a barbeque. If were were marrying during summer, we’d just bbq and invite everybody. As it stands, we’re inviting 30-40 for a sit-down dinner.
