Could you maybe do a potluck at your house and have each person in the Bridal Party bring a dish? It seems less offputting than making them pay at a restaurant and would be cost effective in the same way. Plus potlucks are always fun because you get to try lots of new things!

Um, in a word, yes, it’s inappropriate. Sorry.

I like the potluck idea, or you can have pizza at someone’s house- it’s doesn’t have to be fancy. Or get Subway, or grill burgers & hot dogs.

I agree with the potluck.  I mentioned this as an idea for an expensive shower but it could work for a rehearsal dinner: ask everyone to bring a dish that is special to them/their favorite and bring the recipe as way to build a special cookbook for the newlyweds.

I think a potluck is a great solution for the OP…its fun and relaxing and takes the stress off from you and Fiance.

Yeah, go with the potluck, or you could do a picnic, grill out with burgers and hotdogs, etc. I’ve been to family picnic-style rehearsal dinners that were fun and relaxed, a beautiful chance to enjoy the outdoors, and not at all fussy or expensive. That would be better than going dutch at a restaurant.
