We are having a small wedding because we are paying for it all ourselves. My soon to be father in law has offered to pay for the rehearsal dinner since it will only be about 18 or so people. Before he offered we were gonna do something along the lines of a pizza place to keep the cost low. Im wondering if i should keep it the same or if we should look for something a little nicer? If so where would be a good place? We live in El Monte ca and are getting married in Temecula. Any ideas??????

I think a pizza place is fine, you could even bbq at your house. Personally I like a more casual prewedding get together.

The pizza place would be great. Do ask your Future Father-In-Law is that is what he’d like to do, however. When FI’s parents told us they wanted to pay for the Rehearsal Dinner, they wanted to be in charge of planning and executing the whole thing…that may not be what your Future Father-In-Law has in mind, but definitnely check in with him about it.

I agree with @nmsoonerbride: if I was paying, I’d like a little control over the event.

thanks so much. He said he is willing to pay for what we want but we also dont want to take advantage. Im gluten free so i think the pizza place will work it will keep me from eating like a piggy the night before ha ha

I like the idea of a pizza place! It’s very laid back for 18 guests and would be a fun time 🙂
