I would do something simple.  Maybe pizza and beer?  A big sandwich and simple salads in the backyard?  I have been in several weddings, and most of the rehearsal dinners have been quite casual.

As PP said, rehearsal dinners are usually pretty casual, no need to break the bank on it. At ours we are planning on having Subway sandwich platters and then some homemade salads (pasta, potato, Caeser) and fruit/desserts.

For my MOH’s wedding we went to Sam’s club and got a huge thing of pasta, sauce and cheese and did a couple of really big pans of baked spaghetti. We also got garlic bread and stuff for salad there. It was actually a really nice and easy rehearsal dinner.

I agree with PPs – do something super lowkey and convenient.  Pick someone’s house, and have pizza/beer, takeout, order something made at Costco/Sam’s Club, look into grocery store catering for sandwiches, heck, even subway will make huge sandwich platters for pretty cheap! 

The rehersal dinner doesn’t need to be an elaborate affair – just do what you can to provide a little sustinence to the people who will be there.  After all, they’re your wedding party – will they really fault you for sandwiches or pizza instead of a fancy steakhouse?  I doubt it!

We are having the dinner at a local restaurant..we are paying for $10 of each person’s meal. We have some drinkers in the fam and I don’t want to pay for all of their drinks! So there’s an option..

We’re keeping it super small – bridal party and their dates, parents, and grandparents.  It will be at my parents’ house and my Future Brother-In-Law offered to cook.  He and I will figure out a menu and go to the grocery store together to pick everything out.

My brother’s rehearsal dinner was at their house, and my Mom brought lasagnas. You don’t have to do something expensive (I’m trying to convince Fiance we don’t need to have ours at a restaurant, without much luck.)

One of the most fun rehearsal dinners I’ve ever been to was a grill-out at a park shelterhouse. We had grilled chicken, hot dogs, and burgers. It was chill, casual, delicious, and everyone had a great time!

I plan on skipping the rehearsal dinner since our rehearsal will be held the morning of our wedding due to 50% of our wedding party not arriving until the day of our wedding.

I was planning on doing something really simple like finger foods & mini desserts.

One of my friends did a BBQ at their house. It was so much fun!
