I need some help figuring out a good place for our rehearsal dinner.
We would prefer it to be close to our ceremony venue (Nazareth Chapel at Northwestern College) which is in the Roseville area--but there isn't much for rehearsal dinner spaces around that has an extra room to accommodate everyone.
I live downtown, so we played with the idea of doing the rehearsal dinner around here, but that idea got shot down because all of our OOT guests are country people--so the city parking and traffic would be a frustration.
We have Buca (in Maple Grove) booked in case we can't find anywhere else--they quoted us 22.95 per person. We are hoping for something a little cheaper than that because we are expecting somewhere between 60-70 people (I know...I know... not my decision). It is also about 25 minutes away from the rehearsal venue.
We really like the idea of italian food, there needs to be ample (free) parking, and hopefully somewhere close and cheap. Am I missing any obvious options that I could check out to give my MIL some more options?
