I’m glad you asked this.  We are having our wedding in October in a super small town.  There is this old pizza place that has been there forever.  It’s quite quirky and the pizza is delicious.  That’s where I was thinking of doing the rehearsal dinner to keep costs down and because I freaking like eating pizza!  I say go for it. It’s your rehearsal dinner.  I’m not into super formal stuff, myself, but I guess it depends on what you like.

@EffieTrinket:  I do not think there is anything wrong with having it at the pizza hut. People will surely be understanding that you are not a millionaire who can host two fancy pants events in a row. Don’t they have a salad bar in restaurants? That would be great for people who want a lighter option. You can also order different crusts for added variety. If there aren’t many choices in the small town, you do what you have to do within your budget. I don’t think it’s necessary for you to take on planning and coordinating an involved rehersal dinner at this point.

I don’t know about pizza hut.  Do you want to feel all greasy, bloated, and farty the next day, on your wedding day? 

I would try out this Italian place, maybe set up a tasting, before nixing it.

My parents had a pizza hut rehearsal dinner. I am tempted to do the same bc I’m SO SICK of rehearsals that are as fancy as the wedding.

@EffieTrinket:  Is it possible for you guys to try out the Italian place and see if the food is good? I think its hard to mess up pasta dishes.  Italian place seems like a better option than Pizza Hut. A Pizza Hut gathering reminds me of kids’ birthdays or after the game type thing.

I’ve watched “Food, Inc.,” I buy organic from Whole Foods and Costco whenever I can, and I think Pizza Hut sounds like a fun rehearsal dinner idea for a couple trying to keep costs down.

Those who don’t want to end up “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” can go to the salad bar. 

Holy freaking cow. We’re talking about one meal, not a lifestyle choice. (eyeroll)

Why don’t you throw your suggestions out there and see what people think. If they complain then suggest they all chip in some money themselves or that you will pay the $10 for the buffet if they pay for their own drinks.

 

Just curious I’m from the UK and we don’t have rehearsal dinners – what are they for? And what’s the tradition regarding them?

@EffieTrinket:  Pizza Hut is pretty awful and I wouldn’t want to pay like $70 for crappy pizza for everyone. Is your wedding local? Could you guys cook the food or order pizza yourself and just have everyone over to your home? I’d suggest a potluck but that seems unfair considering the rehearsal dinner is supposed to be a thank you to your bridal party. Could you or your FI’s parents maybe help with the food if they live nearby?

@Diamondgurl:  +1. I love pizza, but if I eat to much of it I wake up feeling gross with a greasy face the next day. NOT how I’d want to feel if I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man, or even the bride!

Though I do not like Pizza Hut, as a guest I would just be happy I am being fed but greasy pizza would make me feel so gross. Also, who knows abt appetite. I kept hearing brides who cant eat a thing before the wedding but I was RAVVENOUS leading up to the wedding and packed on 5 pounds! Ugh!

If you do go with Pizza Hut can you try and make it “cuter” with a few details like seeing if they have a private room or private section? Then doing something funny playing on the words “pizza my heart” (piece of my heart). maybe send out invites with a pizza on it (even an email with the image), giving everyone little notes on a paper pizza and telling they why they have a piece of your heart. You can make it work.

@Diamondgurl:  great point. 

If one of my best friends hosted her rehersal dinner at Pizza Hut I totally wouldn’t mind. I would eat and be happy about it.

@EffieTrinket:  One of my friends had her rehearsal dinner in the basement of the church for the ceremony with subway sub platters, they showed a beautiful slideshow of the couple and everyone talked about how excited they were for tomorrow.  Point is, no one was the least bit offended or irritated by the lack of fancy food or venue, they were just excited for the wedding the next day!  You do what you can afford, and don’t feel bad, people are coming to celebrate your relationship and not to critique your food choices the night before!
