    @crystalirene: I would not have the rehearsal at a location other than your wedding venue. However, have the dinner wherever is closest and easiest

    Is there a different room in your venue that could work for a space to order pizza and stuff? One venue that I was looking at had a really cute parlor room and they said since they could set it up for me to have my rehearsal dinner there and order in food…..

    I’m getting married Friday night and we have to have rehearsal on Thursday by 4pm (they close for other events). The venue is an hour away so this adds another night of hotel expense on for the bridal party, but they understand that.

    I’d say the Friday dinner (whether pizza and wings or more formal) would be good. Makes it more like a wedding weekend and less driving. You will not please everyone, so try to do the option that would suit the highest % without breaking the ank

    P.S. I wanted an informal dinner like pizza and wings, but was told NO WAY by our moms. URGH!

    The rehersal needs to be at the venue – no question. I know a lot of venues who aren’t too happy when there isn’t an on-site rehersal . I can’t imagine there are that many people involved in the actual ceremony…can you guys carpool to your parents and have pizza and wings? I don’t want to do the rehersal dinner either but my Future Mother-In-Law is sorta hellbent on it, so we have to, but I want to keep it as simple as possible.

    A Rehershal is very important at the venue so everyone knows where to go and how to get around and where to wait at before enterancing. It gives you a chance to practice before hand. In regards to the dinner it’s nice to do as a thank you to the wedding party and families and best way to give them their gifts and recognize the parents as well.

    I would at least do something because most do expect to be fed. Also this is the responsibility of his family unless they are not able to do so.
