I don’t have any advice or experience, but I’ll tell you that I would not have any qualms about attending! Haha I love pizza.

My brother had his at a local pizza place, very yummy! We had ours at my in law’s house, they just brought in sandwiches and stuff like that. It was very laid back, and I loved it that way! I’ve been to some formal rd’s that you have a place setting and then you just sit at the table the whole time. At ours everyone was mingling and having fun!

I have been to two rehearsal dinners in the past 2 years that were held at pizza places! (None in their homes, but that’s a slight difference!)  They were both laid-back, fun and inviting!!

we had ours at our apartment complex’s clubhouse.  we rented the nice clubhouse space for the evening.  It was large enough with tables for everyone.  It also had a big screen tv for a slide show and a pool table for a couple kids to play. 

We had a local bbq place “caterer” it.  We just ordered a few large trays of pulled pork, baked chicken, hush puppies, and potatoes.   They supplied the paper plates and silverwear + cups.  We supplied some beers and lemonade plus a couple homemade desserts.  It was easy, relaxed and fun!

@PrncssDva: I was just getting ready to comment on your other post (about activities to do with OOT guests when I saw this one).  Not only are we date twins, but we are also doing a pizza rehearsal dinner.  My suggestions for you: have some salad, even if you just make one big one and have a few dressings.  We’re also using this as a time to make a s’mores buffet which I LOVED but couldn’t work it into the wedding.

I think it’s fine if you have it at your house, just put on some background music, make sure you have enough cold drinks and you’re set to go.

Also, since I’m already here: for our day after breakfast, we’re hosting it at my mother’s house–(it would be ours, but we live in a different state from the wedding.)  We’re just having fruit salad, muffins, sausage, and this make-ahead egg casserole that I’ll probably make the day of the wedding in the morning and pop in the fridge.  The last thing I’ll want to do the morning after the wedding is a ton of cooking, so I want as much of it ready beforehand as possible.  If you want to go this route, and want the receipe, PM me and I’ll send it to you πŸ™‚

This is exactly what we are doing for our rehearsal in 2 weeks, except not at our house, my FI parents were able to get a small hall for free at FFIL’s place of employment, we are ordering in pizza, a few aunts are making salads, having some cocktails…and calling it good. Everyone is excited. We are even wearing jeans/nice shirts to our rehearsal. Our wedding day is more formal too so we wanted to capitivate how relaxed of a couple we truly are!

@PrncssDva: Pizza sounds great!  But…. I would be hesitant to have it at your place!  I wanted to have ours at my house and my mom wisely steered me away from that.  With everything else you have going on, you really don’t need to make sure your place is ready for a party.  Afterwards, you will have to deal with cleaning up.  It was so nice to go to our dinner and walk away and let the restaurant deal with cleanup.  I was able to do last minute honeymoon packing and get some sleep.  I would recommend having it somewhere else – maybe a local pizza shop or a friend’s house?  Anything you can do to make things easier on yourself is a good thing! πŸ™‚

We didn’t have it at home, but we went to a local pizza place and had pizza. Everyone loved it plus it was themed “1980’s Nerds and Prom Queens.” It was a blast. People loved getting different kinds of pizza than the regular national chains and it was super yummy. Since you’re in Memphis, I’m sure they have something like that or maybe, if you know someone who makes homemade pizza (we do this. it’s easy and YUMMY), maybe you could ask them to help you out as your wedding present.
