- Wedding: July 2014
I’m starting to think about venues for the rehearsal dinner and would love some help brainstorming.
reBar wedding (dumbo), July of next year, rehearsal dinner Saturday night, pretty tight budget (shooting for <$2k total for about 35 people). Would be great to stay in Brooklyn, but not mandatory.
I think our ideal situation would be to rent out a space and bring in our own food and drink- something like trays of Thai food or Middle Eastern, bottles of wine and beer. Or rent out a bar (maybe rooftop, if we’re still in the ideal sphere!), do drinks through them and just bring in food. Any ideas for a place that might work?
I’ve also been exploring the more traditional, private room in a restaurant- right now on the shortlist are Bogota, Palo Santo, or Backyard in Park Slope; or Alma or Mazzat on Columbia Waterfront.
And finally, Chinatown- haven’t really done any research yet…It scares me a little, but definitely a possibility.
Anyone going through a similar process or with any ideas, please share!
