Personally I would, I do not like Pizza Hut, in fact I hate it. It is a gross pizza.  I would rather do the Italian place if I were you

Does the Italian place do pizza? It would be a little be cheaper of an option than the buffet, but still a little nicer than The Hut!

I wouldn’t mind Pizza Hut at all and I completely understand your position.  Do what you’re able to do.  Don’t pick something outside your budget.

@EffieTrinket:  How about a BBQ somewhere?  Either have it catered in or have someone grill bunch of burgers/brats/hot dog type of deal?

@EffieTrinket:  We had a very casual rehearsal dinner and loved it. We hosted the dinner at DH’s mom’s house because it was big enough. We bought Buffalo Wild Wings and Rudy’s BBQ (kind of chain restaruant that smokes meats). It was delicious, fun and everyone loved it. We bought some nice serving dishes (which we still have to use later) and transferred the food to it. 

I would say, do what’s budget savvy. Do you plan on eating at Pizza Hut or getting take out? If you do get take out, what about displaying it in a cute, nice buffet style?

In contrast, I had a friend have a very pricey catered rehearsal dinner at a nice location. She spent a lot of money, but people complained because while it was fancy, it wasn’t filling at all. It was lots of salads, small appetizers and very little hardy food. I think having well fed guests is what is important. Do what works for you!

@EffieTrinket:  I personally am not a fan of pizza, is there a grocery store that could cater?  Maybe you could do a catered dinner at a conference room in the hotel where everyone is staying?

@EffieTrinket:  Is there any way you could host a rehearsal dinner at your or a family members place?  Its so much more affordable than eating in a restaurant, and you could do lasagna, salad, garlic bread and some tiramisu for dessert on a much more affordable budget….plus, you can make the lasagna a week or two in advance and freeze it, so its really just a heat and serve situation.

We are doing pizza hut party!

We are renting a home [for people to stay], and to host the “welcome party”.

Which has plenty of seating for people to enjoy themselves :

We plan to get lots of pizza, soda & beer and make a night of it!

But, pizza hut is the big pizza franchise around here.. there isn’t any other pizza available so everyone here eats it.

@EffieTrinket:  Are there any cafes or anything where they sell boxed lunches? Like sandwiches and chips?

I personally would be fine with eating at Pizza Hut, assuming I could pick what I wanted and its not just a “you can either have this pizza or this pizza” kind of thing. But I know a lot of people (particularly in this group) would hate the idea.

@EffieTrinket:  Try the Italian place before you make a decision, or check out the reviews on Yelp and ask around to see if it’s any good.

If you go with Pizza Hut, maybe “class it up” a little and have it delivered.  I like the display image that bmo88 posted above.  You could have the groom’s parents bring a salad or veggie tray as well.  I don’t know about your bridesmaids, but the only request I asked of my groom’s parents for the rehearsal is no Italian.  I know I, along with my bridesmaids, will not be indulging in pasta and bread the night before I have to put on a dress…

You could also have it delivered to a nearby park or someone’s house and have games, homemade desserts, etc to make it more intimate.  Aren’t Pizza Hut’s really old and dingy on the inside?  You could buy Digornio pizzas and add your own fresh toppings to make them look a little more expensive, too.

I think pizza is great but I’m not a fan of pizza hut.  Are there any local pizza places you could go to?

BBQ is another fantastic option (you can even do pulled pork yourselves beforehand, it’s very easy)

If those are you only true options then go with pizza hut if the italian place isn’t very good (I’d try it out first).  I don’t think anyone will throw a fit.
