    8 pizzas for 30 people sounds a little skimpy to me, especially if they’ll be hungry from a long day of traveling.  But, I do think that the idea is really lovely.  We hung out with our Out of Town family after the rehearsal dinner, and it was awesome, but we did hit it pretty hard and the morning of the wedding day was rough.   We had a day-after brunch with a similar set-up as your pre-wedding dinner, though (no rsvps, drop in, casual, food and drinks, etc), and it went off really well

    Sounds awesome, but I’d get more than 8 pizzas personally; unless they’re HUGE, I’m not convinced they’ll be enough (I’m tiny and can do a 10 inch pizza on my own lol)

    It’s a cute idea!  However, my husband and I have finished a pie ourselves, so I’d get extra just in case.

    sounds good to me! that’s pretty much what we did for our rehearsal dinner. we just wanted something casual and laid back. it worked out really well.

    maybe you could also buy a few bags of salad for those who may want something a little lighter 🙂

    We did a pizza party rehearsal dinner too! We got 20 pizzas from Dominos, I think we had a little over 30 people. We did have a little bit of leftovers, but nothing significant…so you may want to add some more pizzas. We also got breadsticks and my mom made some extra appetizers, and tapped a keg. It was so much fun, good choice 🙂

    I think it sounds good.

     

    You can alwas order a couple more pizzas 1/2 way through if you find you are running low.

    Great idea, but even with sides and drinks I don’t think 8 pizzas will be enough for 30 people.

    I think this is a great idea. I think a lot of what is nice for a guest about rehearsal dinner is that they get to have a whole weekend of fun, not just one afternoon. This is a great idea. I think you need more Food.

    I think it’s a great idea.

    I’d order  more pizzas though my SO and 2 boys eat a large pizza each. 

    I like the idea of giving out the welcome bags then too.
