I don’t have any ideas for you in particular.

We are doing our rehearsal dinner at buffalo wild wings, at around 4:00 pm. We jus want something fun, where our girls & guys can kick back & relax before going crazy on the big day! BWW offers something on the menu for everyone, and it’s just a fun place!

We had our rehearsal dinner at a restaurant near the hotel – It was just us and the wedding party, both sets of parents, his grandma, my niece, best mans fiance, and my one bridesmaids boyfriend.  

We picked a restaurant that ironically, my parents and his dad used to go to back when they were younger, and my parents brought us there when we were kids(we weren’t even living in the city) – so it was kind of sentimental and they are known for great food at a decent price. 

I’m glad it was near the hotel.

Our rehearsal is in the early afternoon so we will probably do more of a late lunch at the hotel we are using. We are definitely planning on something casual and probably buffet style.

Probably something easy as we have to set up everything for the next day and we are paying for everything! Trying to keep costs low! Probably pizza?

My FMIL has been super helpful with that.My dad LOVES mexican food and my FI’s family is Puerto Rican. His mom makes the best spanish rice! So sje’s come up with a way to combine the two. Our wedding is formal but the rehersal is going to be laid back. Just a bunch of food and family!

We are doing a “welcome dinner” in place of the traditional rehearsal dinner since the majority of our guests are flying in from across the country.  We decided to do a real casual event.  We have a private room at a BBQ joint very close to the hotel everyone is staying at.  It will be open bar and plastic plates and utensils.  We wanted something fun and relaxing for everyone.

@MattandKristin:  

We are doing a low-key, relaxed backyard BBQ, hosted by my FI’s parents. We just want something fun + low maintenance, with great eats!

We’re also inviting everyone to the rehearsal dinner but it’ll be more like 100-125 people. We’re doing a big BBQ at a nice outdoor area with the elk my hubby shot this fall + some sides and a keg. We’re going to recruit some local friends to help set up and grill. Informal and festive, whih is our style. Can’t pass up the opportunity to hang out with all our friends and family for 2 days.
