Rehearsal Dinner venue? Where are you having yours?

Hi ladies, 

So I really don't know what to do here. My FMIL & FFIL insist on paying for the rehearsal dinner. They don't have alot of money, so I would like to keep it as inexpensive as possible. I was thinking maybe doing a late morning ceremony rehearsal and then hitting a park or something after and just doing a barbecue. Any suggestions on parks or other affordable venues in Davie or somewhere nearby? My FMIL is a little, no ALOT, more traditional than I am, and even though she didn't out right say it, I know she isn't too excited about the bbq in the park idea. I think it would be more affordable but I'd like to give them options.

TIA!

    The earlier you eat, the cheaper it'll be.

    My FMIL has this insane idea that to save money she is going to cook for the 40-50 people at our rehearsal dinner....in.my.kitchen.the.day.before.my.wedding......OMG!!!  It's going to be a disaster and I'm very seriously contemplating staying in a hotel by myself that week.  However, we are having the (possibly foodless) rehearsal dinner at Richardson Historic Park/House in Wilton Manors.  The all day rental was $800 but you can rent by the hour too.  I think it was $125/hr.  They also provide a grill.  It's a gorgeous location with a nature walk and on the water.  Also tables and chairs are included.

    I'm all for casual and agree with Melissa, do it at a house if you can. We're having ours at Peacock Garden Cafe in the Grove because FMIL didn't want to have it at the house. GL!

    If you want BBQ, try Scrubies for the catering- we looked into them for our reception and they can provide dinner for $5 pp!
