I think that sounds perfect! The last thing you want the day before your wedding is more stress of having a formal dinner. Just have fun with it!

I think it sounds fine too. I’m not sure what we are doing for our rehersal dinner yet, but we are thinking something fairly informal/inexpensive since we won’t have much money left in our budget for it after all of the wedding day expenses. We may even consider just holding the dinner at my parent’s house.

That sounds AWESOME!  I agree that it’s nice to have a less formal rehearsal dinner when the reception is formal.  And if it makes you feel better, our rehearsal dinner is being catered by a taco truck….

I think it sounds perfect! Our Rehearsal Dinner was a BBQ picnic outside at picnic tables under a pavilion with ribs, cornbread, etc. It was a lot of fun and really relaxed – I loved it!

Ours is also going to be very relaxed. FI’s parents rented the guest house on the property that our wedding is taking place so we are having a big cookout/pool party for the rehearsal dinner.

One less outfit to buy! I plan on wearing a bikini 🙂

Sounds great!  We are having ours at Chevy’s…good food, inexpensive and everyone knows their menu already.  However, they are on their own for buying any alcoholic drinks.

I think it sounds great!  We had our Rehearsal Dinner at a pizza place – we set up tables outside and had a couple kinds of salad, garlic bread, and pizzas.  It was so fun.  The best part was obviously the price (which meant we could invite everyone), but it was also great to have something so different from the weddding.

I think it sounds perfect! we are having a laid back rehearsal dinner in my parents back yard! If we werent going to do it there, I would have wanted to have a dinner at my favorite chinese restaurant. I think its perfect.

Our wedding is pretty formal too, so we’re doing the same thing, super casual Rehearsal Dinner.  We found a county park 10 minutes from wedding/rehearsal location, reserved a shelter and will probably be doing a make your own sandwich bar and just relax and get to talk to everyone before the craziness of the next day.

That sounds ideal. I don’t think the rehearsal dinner should be a big formal thing, it should be a thank you to your wedding party and immediate family and just be fun.

That sounds good to me, we are having a pretty informal one too at a family style italian place. I don’t think a rehersal dinner has to be fancy.
