It wasn’t “next” but we’re doing good ol chinese food.

Fiance is Chinese and I’m half… so it just makes sense.

I have a lot of friends and family coming from out of town. I am thinking of having a bbq at the house on the Thursday evening with the friends and family that are already here (which isn’t too many). And then on the Friday, post-rehearsal, I am lucky to have one of our designated hotels willing to book off half the bar/lounge for drinks with happy hour pricing and appies and platter at deal pricing. I am hoping to surprise the Fiance with a comic book themed grooms cake that night too.

Nice, those are good prices.  I’m hoping to find something similar when we start planning for our rehearsal dinner.  We’lll need one vegetarian option, and also some wine with dinner if possible, but it will all depend on the prices we get once we start looking.  I have no idea what to expect in my city in terms of price for a group.  We have quite a few people coming to the rehearsal dinner too Undecided.

We are doing it at a tapas restaurant. Dinner will be family style and an open bar. We are inviting about 125 people (eek). It is one of our favorite restaurants and they have a great room so i am really excited!

We’re having an intimate rehearsal dinner for just the bridal party at a downtown Chi hotel restaurant. We love the venue, and it’s a block and a half away from the ceremony venue, so, weather permitting, we can just walk. Woot!

We’ve rented a house for the weekend out in the country, so we’re having a 3-course rehearsal dinner there (outside on the patio) with just immediate family and folks in the bridal party. The caterer is going to bring in everything along with a chef and a server to take care of us for the night. It’s not cheap, but will be intimate and fun I think. I’m picturing one of those loooonnnggg dining tables. ๐Ÿ™‚

We are using the Amenity Room in FI’s building.  It was only built 2 years ago so the colors are red/grey and very mod.  The invitations were my second DIY project and are in a vellum envelope with some different sized circle confetti in red, grey and black.  Invites/decor will match the room!

We are serving Vietnamese Banh Mi from our fave place and gelato pre-scooped from another local hot spot.  Keeping it classy while keeping it casual. ๐Ÿ™‚

We met at a local restaurant (was our 1st jobs too) so, we are having our Rehearsal Dinner catered by the restaurant. It will be just the bridal party and immediate family at our farm picnic table style.
