    I think you should eat dinner before you go and only have a couple of drinks (or pre-drink if you’re not driving, or bring a flask if you really want to get drunk in the bathroom, haha).  Chip in for the bride as well.  I wouldn’t count on the waiter friend because you just never know.  He could call in sick or not recognize you or be handling an emergency when it’s time for you to pay.  I would just eat dinner first.  Have fun!

    PS – do you know anyone else going whom you could ask what they plan on wearing?  I have never even seen anyone at a restaurant in a “formal gown”!  Maybe I don’t go to the right places.  😉

    Goodness that is a situation I wouldn’t want to be in! I don’t get why people think that anyone can afford a $200 dinner on a whim…I, for one, have to plan for those. I’m not really sure what to suggest to you, but damn you are a great friend! Is everyone else on board for spending this much money on dinner and drinks? I know you don’t want to disappoint your bride, BUT don’t strain yourself money wise for her…especially since you aren’t even in the bridal party.

    If it were me, I’d grab a bite from McDonalds or something and then just go for drinks. And maybe offer to buy a drink for the bride. Good luck!
