Is it trashy to have your rehearsal dinner at a restaurant FH works at?

Not at all! I think it’s a smart way to use the resources you already have at your disposal. If people want to judge you for having a “not fancy” rehearsal dinner, they can eat a bag of dicks. As long as the service is good and the food abundant, no one should care.

stlkennedy92 :  not at all! It’s a cool personal connection that makes your rehearsal dinner way more “you”, and I would be all about using that free $300. Anyone who thinks this is trashy is a complete snob. As long as the food is good (not fancy but tasty), don’t think twice.

Definitely not trashy! A great personal connection to the location, you know the restaurant will take great care of you and you’re making the most of your resources!

I’d say as long as FH is fine with it then go for it!

I don’t think anybody can think anything other than “this place is great” if they have a plate of crack fries in front of them haha I don’t think it is trashy AT ALL and I think everybody will have a great time. Good choice!

stlkennedy92 :  Id rather go to a rehearsal dinner at HopCat than an upscale place that probably has small portions, especially if I get some of the fries from HopCat. Yum!

I’d actually prefer crack fries over some of the “fancier” rehearsal dinners I’ve been to! It’s a fun place, and it’s not like it’s McDonald’s or something.

stlkennedy92 :  I’m not familiar with that restaurant. Is it trashy? If so, then yes, the idea is trashy. If not, then no, it is not trashy to hold an event in a non-trashy place.

Is it bar food? If so I would probably decline and I hate beer. That doesn’t make it trashy, just not my style.

not at all.  I don’t care how much you spend on me, just that im fed (and watered, if I can drink).  Sounds like everyone will at the very least be well watered. 😉
