It would create more stress, but could you have the dinner at your home? I would just have pizza and salads delivered (or you could pick them up on your way).  If you don’t want that stress right before the wedding (and I don’t blame you), would another member of your bridal party or family be able to have it at their house?

That’s really tough. Maybe you should just have sandwhiches…

 

I’ve never heard of someone saying there isn’t a rehersal dinner, but there is ice cream…

@Mrs. Gremmlin: I’d either have it at your house, our a family members. You can get some nice trays of lasagna, salads, etc. and easily stay within your budget.

Edit: Oops, just saw your post.

Hmm thats tough. Its hard to make suggestions without knowing the area. Maybe try posting in the Florida message boards?

There’s gotta be more pizza shops around. How about sandwich shops?

Will you guys be at a hotel (I noticed your wedding is out of town) can you use a meeting room and get delivery?

I know around me there are good family style italian restuarants that are cheap. Try that maybe?

Wow, this is tough… Maybe see if there is a resteraunt or hotel that will let you rent a conference room?

Do you have a local community center/moose lodge/vfw you can bring food into?

@Mrs. Gremmlin:

What about asking if the aquarium has a meeting room for rent? I would think they would have some kind of meeting/presentation space?

ETA: I was going to check for you but man there are a lot of aquariums in downtown Tampa!

@Mrs. Gremmlin: The hotel we stayed at for my friends wedding just a few months ago let us use their conference room for free for her rehersal, yours might let you do this also.
