Can you do the run through with the bridal party and immediate family, followed by the pizza and beer? Everyone close to you knows your situation, and no one is going to judge you. If a meal of pizza and beer with the people you love is going to make you happy, do it. I think the time with loved ones is far more important than the what or where.

Another option is get some cold cut platters and have people over to one of your houses.

@arimmer1990:  I think it’s nice even if it’s just pizza or something quick and easy as a way to say thank you to your bridal party.

I think those closest to you will appreciate the effort no matter what, plus pizza and beer is awesome.

We didn’t have a rehearsal – you don’t need one.  People will figure out how to walk down the aisle and stand at the front 🙂

Order pizza and beer or you can make a lasagna (or two if there are vegetarians) for super cheap.  Just invite the absolute bare minimum required people for the rehearsal (i.e. parents and bridal party.)

@arimmer1990:  Why don’t you have a potlach? Everyone can come, bring a small item, you could supply a couple bottles of wine to do a last toast before the wedding? Make it fun and casual! The people who love you don’t care about a fancy meal, they are there for YOU!

Simple and cheap is great for a rehearsal dinner! But I do think a rehearsal dinner of some kind is a nice way to thank your bridal party for taking the time to go to your rehearsal. And who doesn’t love pizza and beer?!
