Do you have a backyard? you could kick it up a notch by making it a BBQ. 😉

I’m not the stuffy kind so pizza, beer, music and laughter would be just fine with me.

We really, really wanted to do the same thing but couldn’t find a place big enough to accommodate us. 🙁  But I LOVE the idea… people will totally have fun and get into the vibe of your wedding. I’ve been to all sorts of rehearsal dinners, and the casual ones have been the most fun for me – I think if you make it family-style with big long tables, pitchers of beer, paper covering the tables with crayons to draw (OK, maybe it’s just me, but I’d love that!), people will have a great time.

I love it.  Totally stress free and really relaxed.  And you really don’t need to do more than just have people over to your home (or your inlaws, or whomever) and provide pizza, beer, and maybe a salad or two.  Use paper plates and napkins, and then no one has to worry about cleanup.

(And while I haven’t been to a rehearsal dinner like that, it’s become a family tradition to do pizza and beer for engagement parties.)

No need to dress up?  Eat comfort food? I love it.

I love this idea- puts the focus on the people and the fun, rather than on the "details"- let’s all save those for the wedding!

I’ve been to a pizza rehearsal dinner before and it was a blast. It was totally relaxed and casual, just what everyone needed before the wedding!

I love this idea too but make sure people know how casual it is, no one likes to be over dressed especially with lots of greasy goodness around to stain.

Where are you planning on having it?

We’re having ours in Chicago and doing Chicago style pizza and beer for the rehearsal dinner! I’m all for it!

I think it would be O.K. if you kept it high energy and gave it the right environment-like the suggestion above about making it a backyard BBQ.

Totally fine.  We’re doing a casual clambake because we figure the wedding will be more formal and we want people to relax and get to know eachother!  If you’re worried about being too casual, go for some pizza with gourmet toppings and use real plates or nice plastic.  A nice salad and voila! Traditional American comfort food is SO in right now. It sounds perfect.

I think it is great to have a casual rehearsal dinner. Everyone loves to relax and I think with the right music and some candles around the place it would be very nice. I was thinking of having a barbecue, but we would need to get a new grill first.

I really wanted to do something similar, but with hot dogs in the park where we are getting married.  Unfortunately, Puff Daddy didn’t think it was nice enough for the out-of-town guests.  He thought they should be treated to a nicer dinner.  That being said, I didn’t agree with him!
