    I think that sounds just fine! We’re having a soup and fresh bread thing at my Mom’s house. She makes the most amazing stew, and it’s going to be a cold night in November, so soup = awesome.

    My future in0laws are paying for it.  Fortunately we are having it in a town that has various dining options available to us.  We are actually go to a brewery and having lots of apps so people can mingle.  We are having about 30 people at the dinner so I didn’t want them to be spending too much on it (even though they said they didn’t care about $$).  I found it pretty hard to pick a place since I wanted a menu that would appeal to everyone.

    My Fiance would be very jealous of you!!  He was rooting for Chinese place or a place that serves lots of Buffalo Wings/BBQ! hahhaa  I won, he lost :o)

    I have a friend who is actually have a pool party and backyard BBQ @ her parent’s house the night before.  I’m pretty jealous of her idea – it wasn’t an option for us since our ceremony/reception site is in the middle ground (about 1/2 hour from everyone in either direction).

    I think that we are going to have ours at a restaurant/microbrewery down the street from the church. They serve food made with locally grown produce and get their meat from responsible and ethical farms and have delicious beer. It will be a nice, easy going dinner to thank everyone for coming before we jump into the formality of the following day. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ours is at a restaurant. It’s too many people to comfortably fit inside someone else’s house, and I was outvoted on the casual sports bar rd I’d originally suggested. ๐Ÿ˜‰ We’re having it at a Persian restaurant instead. Yummy!

    I voted “other” because we are having it at the ballroom of the hotel we’re staying at, but that’s not the actual wedding venue.

    We are having it at a different city property than our ceremony/reception venue.  It is at a small park with indoor and outdoor spaces.  It is fairly cheap to rent and looks out on a lake and they provide tables and chairs.  We are doing a barbeque there with homemade sides.  I am so excited!

    I would of liked to do it at a resto, but we decided to save some $ and have it at my parents house.  I’m glad we decided to do it that way though.  That way, if I’m super nervous that night, I’ll be in a place I find comfort and, it’ll be where I’ll be sleeping so I won’t have to travel anywhere after the dinner.

    We are having ours at Chevy’s. They had a banquet menu, it was within our budget, and they took our reservation with ease. We were having trouble finding other restaurants that would take our group at around 6:30, and also within our budget.
