I will have to let you know after my wedding later this month! 🙂 We are having a prewedding pizza dinner/open house (at my home — at least if I can not stress over the house and such)! We too wanted something casual, and everyone seems relieved . . . so I am hoping it turns out fine. It is what my fiance wants, for sure!
Good luck to you!

Oh my! I cannot believe the overwhelmingly great responses to this! I feel so much better about it. Thank you! I am planning to do the pizza and beer at the wedding location just after the actual rehearsal. We live what some would consider a smaller town (180,000) but the wedding is taking place in an actual small town with a population of about 300! This is where I grew up. As you can imagine – not a lot going on there. I wanted to get everyone at the location, have the rehearsal, have some pizza and beer and enjoy themselves! Thanks again, I am thrilled!

I think that is an awesome idea! We’re doing a BBQ and I think it’ll be kind of a time to relax before the big day!

Heck no I think it sounds like fun! I’m doing a BBQ for mine, in the back yard and all!!
Things are only acceptable if they meet your standards! If you were having a stuffing, yuppity wedding – then maybe the pizza and beer thing would be a no-no, but bring it on. I can’t wait to hear about how well it went!

We did it and we loved it. Very chill and fun and relaxing — and if your out-of-town guests are arriving throughout the day/night they can just show up when they get in and not worry about missing out on dinner.

I think it’s a great idea! If you have a lot of out-of-town guests, they might not be getting in until that day and would probably welcome the chance to relax at a more casual party than get dressed up and sit at a restaurant for hours after traveling all day. Even if you don’t have a lot of out-of-town guests, it’s still a great way to relax with your loved ones before the chaos of The Big Day.
