- Wedding: November 2009
I’m trying to keep my rehearsal dinner casual and affordable, but I’m also having a destination wedding, which means any backyard bbq’s are out. Restaurants have been quoting me what I think are outrageous prices ($65 – $90 per person – not including the drinks!!). I’m not even asking for a plated dinner – I’ve been asking for family style/tapas type menus. I did find one place that seems a bit more reasonable, but it’s still going to run me $30-$40 per person. Also, a lot these places are suggesting open bars for the rehearsal dinner – is anyone actually doing that? I get it for the wedding, but the rehearsal dinner?
How much are you spending or did you spend on your rehearsal dinner? What’s reasonable? (I guess I should I add that we are paying for everything – RD/wedding/etc. and the location is Puerto Rico and i’m inviting all the guests, not just wedding party.)
