    Hmm. Well I voted for burgers, but now I think that may be a little too similar to the wedding dinner. I agree with you though that Italian may be heavy, but you don’t have to eat the pasta. I’d treat yourself to a nice light chicken sandwich and have a salad while everyone else can share pasta and salad. 

    Or, go super casual and have pizza 🙂 Mmm. Can you convince your Fiance that it’s still ‘Italian?’ hehe.

    I think we are having the same wedding!  We’re doing back yard BBQ for the reception, and italian for the reherasal dinner.  It feels a little funny, since the rehearsal dinner is going to be significantly “nicer” than the wedding, but whatever.  My fiance was worried about it, but I convinced him that it isn’t a big deal and that ultimately, people are just going to be excited to be there.

    I agree with not doing burgers, etc since that’s what your wedding meal is. Italian would be a nice option, you could do a lighter caprese salad and even grilled pizza if you wanted lighter options than pasta. Gelato or tiramisu (or both!) is a must have for dessert though 🙂

    We’re doing BBQ for our wedding meal, and we’re going to a pizza/pasta joint for the rehearsal dinner.

    I agree with the others that you should do Italian because it’s different from the wedding meal.  We did had our rehearsal dinner at an Italian place.  I stuffed my face with bread and spinach ravioli and I fit in my dress just fine : )

    What about doing a lot of finger foods that are more casual? Lots of appitizers and things like that would be fun 🙂 I think burgers is a little too close to the wedding meal but agree italian might be too filling.
