- Wedding: May 2013
So, wedding plans are coming along pretty well. I’m now at the point of thinking about our rehearsal dinner, and it is stressing me out!! My fiances parents have said they will pay for the dinner but I am not sure if they realize how much this might cost. I’m afraid that it will be too much. Not to mention my fiance has no clue what an actual wedding costs. To be honest if he had a choice we would have eloped but he’s doing this big wedding for me.
My guest list for the rehearsal dinner is 40 people, and I would like to have it at my grandparents house and have it catered. Their house is large, close to the church and would be a more relaxed atmosphere.
My mom has a catering contact and has gotten a quote from him, $875 for 40 people, which includes delivery, setup and 18% gratuity. I think this an inbeliveable price, and well below what I had expected. I told my fiance and his response was “how much less if I picked it up myself” I swear he doesn’t get it, he’s going to be alittle busy and won’t have time for that, which is why having it catered in the perfect idea, we just need to show up and it’s ready to go.
I don’t even know if I need any advice or just needed to vent but I feel like this detail of the wedding shouldn’t be this stressful.
