Hello Again! I too need rehersal dinner help, though for May 19, 2011. Due to an oversight with our planning, we're in charge of the organization of it and we didn't originally plan it into the budget, so we're trying to squeeze it in now.
Our original idea was to do something casual, especially since the ceremony will be so formal. We were going to see if we could get Med Deli to cater to our old apartment clubhouse and get some wine/beer for a casual, relaxing night. Problem is we ended up moving to Raleigh. Fiance's parents live in Burlington, both locations are just too far to drive there and back given the timing of our rehersal; we'll need something local
We're looking at inviting around 22-25 people. I'm trying to keep this in the $500-700 (less is always awesome too) without it coming across as cheap and/or tacky. Any ideas for locations we could rent to host the event or restaurants/bars etc we could just do everything at instead?
**NOTE: we could possibly rent out Best Man's apartment club house, or so we've heard, but we have no idea if it has any tables, linens, chairs, etc, so would need to think how to dress it up.
