- Wedding: October 2011
My FI and I will be getting married October 1, 2011. This is my first wedding and his second…and I’m trying to figure out what to do for the rehersal dinner. I originally wanted everyone to go back to my parents house and have a cook out and get to know each other more but we now have access to the reception site that evening and I want to head over after the rehersal to finish setting things up. I am the crafty one and DIY so I need to set up. My parents’ house is at least 20 minutes away from the church and the reception site so instead of going to my parents we are thinking about just having the rehersal dinner at the church we are getting married.
The biggest issue we are having is that his family isn’t contributing to our wedding at all and I don’t want my parents have to pay for this expense as well. I was just thinking about catering BBQ in but I can’t afford that so I was just thinking about going informal and just ordering pizza. It’s not my ideal dinner but it’s about all I can afford on top of everything else for around 35 people.
I would still try to make it a nice time but is it too informal?
