- Wedding: June 2013
So we’re having a short, informal rehersal at our wedding site and of course want to take everyone out after for a casual rehersal dinner. I’ve let everyone know that it’s very casual – no need to dress up and if they cannot make it because of travel plans it’s not a big deal. It’s mostly just so we can go through the process with our minister (also my aunt). With the wedding party and thier spouses/parents plus us there will be about 20 people at the rehersal/dinner. We’re going to a cute little pizzaria near our wedding site and we will have all of the food ordered before-hand; banquet style. The problem is that as much as I’d love to – if we pay for everyones drink bill as well, it could easily double (or triple) the cost of the dinner and there is just no way that we could afford it with all of our other wedding expenses. Does it seem cheap to take everyone out for a rehersal dinner but then expect them to pay for thier own drinks??? Since we are pre-paying for the food is there a tactfull way of telling people that they are on thier own if they want drinks from the bar? What if we bought something nice like pellegrino for the table… that way we would at least something to drink, just not alcohol. Any thoughts?
