    I normally don’t like to eat 2 similiar things on 2 nights, but that’s just me.

    Since it’s in a shelter, it sounds like it’s pretty casual. You could go the bbq route.

    Even though both nights are Italian because the food items are different on both nights, I don’t see what is wrong with having Italian both nights.

    I agree with PP. Since you’re not serving exactly the same thing both nights, it’s okay. Plus, it’s not like all the guests are attending both the wedding and the Rehearsal Dinner.

    I could eat Italian food all day, every day, but among my family and friends, I am one of the few who will admit this. I might consider something lighter. I just would hate the idea of anyone     getting to the wedding and being less than happy because it is Italian, again.

    Most picnic shelters have grills though. Throw some burgers and dogs on the grill and serve with chips, fruit and brownies and there you go. It would be a lot cheaper than spaghetti and no caterer needed, just maybe a guy who likes to grill.

    @ssmith17:  I think since you’re not serving the same dishes at both events, it’s fine. I think most people will just appreciate being fed decent food 2 nights in a row and not think “ITALIAN AGAIN?” Anyway, most people love Italian.

    My shower and our wedding will both be Indian food, though they’ll be 2.5 months apart.

    As a guest I wouldn’t mind at all – but I’m one of those people who could eat the same meals I like over and over again and not care. But if you’re still searching for a different option for the rehersal dinner, what about Mexican? That’s usually pretty inexpensive.
