I am in a similar situatio nand I was thinking of doing a pizza night or something, although pizza goes well with beer and it has me a little worried!

I’m originally from Wisconsin so I’m totally down with the beer garden and polka!  One of my girlfriends had her rehearsal dinner at the Essen Haus in Madison.  It was probably the best rehearsal I have ever attended!  Everyone was relaxed and just happy to be together.  No one consumed excessive amounts of beer.  (I would definitely recommend ordering by the glass instead of the boot… it’s too easy to get carried away!)  While it probably depends on the maturity of the guests, most adults are responsible enough to know when to draw the line… especially on the eve of a big event!  Be sure to save some fun for the Big Day!  I say, go for it!!

Personally I like the idea, but then again I am originally from the Northwoods of WI. 

I would suggest that (1) you talk to your bridal party about not drining too much the night before the wedding-let them know how you feel, (2) maybe you can arrange for group transporation so when you and your fiance are ready to go, so will everyone else, and (3) talk to the manager about how you don’t want any of your guest driving drunk and encourage them to be strict about cutting off anyone they think has had too much.   

Most of your guests should be mature enough to remember why they are in town-your wedding, so hopefully they will want to get a good nights sleep too.  Best Wishes!

Ahh.  The Essen Haus!  It should be really fun.  Go for it!  Just make sure to have lots of food and no one should get too out of hand.  Or if you order boots, get something really rich so its hard to drink too much.
