It’s a rehearsal, the food doens’t need to be fancy!

We are doing pizza hut and probably a few pastas and salads.

What you are doing sounds totaly great!  As I’m trying to convince a friend right now, you only have to feed people.  You don’t have to blow your budget to be able to do that.  And very few people will turn down pizza!

I don’t think it’s tacky at all!  All the rehearsal dinners I have been to have actually just been cooked by the bride’s family and are really low key.  Ours is probably going to be at our Grandparent’s in the yard with a BBQ (my FI really likes to smoke meat – and it’s amazing).  We are also paying for our entire wedding ourself and totally get the trying to keep the cost down – trust me, as long as your guests are fed they will be happy!

MMMMMM specialty pizzas!!! I would totally do that if we had anywhere to host it (me and FI’s place is too small and our family are all too far). We actually looked into a local pizza/Italian restaurant for something just like that for our RD, but they wanted $40/head, before taxes/gratuities, and with no liquor, FOR PIZZA!!!!

No, there’s nothing wrong with just doing a casual get together.  A lot of RD’s I’ve been to have been pizza or something very simple.

Sounds delicious to me!! I’m all about sticking with what you can afford.

Do you NEED a rehearsal at all, though?

If you are having one, I definitely would feed people, though.

That sounds awesome to me!  We did a BBQ for our rehearsal dinner and everyone loved it.

Is that your house??  It’s really beautiful.

Your plan is totally fine, and the place (yours?) is beautiful.  I would definitely make sure you have room for some beer in your budget.  It just seems sad to me to have pizza without it! You don’t have to do anything fancy, but I think your guests would appreciate a beverage or two.

CallMeMrsG:  That sounds awesome! We’re doing something similar. Just a reherasl party at our place with finger foods (which I’m hoping someone will volunteer to cook, haha!)
