I'm getting married at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point in October 2014, and I'm trying to think of places where I could have the rehearsal dinner that's not ridiculously expensive. Having the rehearsal dinner at the hotel would be at least $60 a person, which my family's not willing to spring for (and I agree that's way too much!).
It's a destination wedding for us, and most of our guests want to arrive the day before the wedding, so it'll be more like 50-60 people rather than just the traditional wedding party and parents. So far I've looked into Doc Ford's and Blue Water Bistro (since it's right down the street). Anyone have any recommendations?
