We got some extra money as a gift from FI's mother to help pay for a rehearsal dinner, so we now have $1000 to try to come up with an option. This may seem easy, but we have about 30-35 people just in our immediate family/wedding party (both our parents are divorced and remarried with kids between them), so we still have a limit to what we can do- can anyone suggest places that may work with this budget? Also, is it wrong to ask people to pay for drinks themselves if we cover the dinner portion or should we try to find that included? We are doing it Saturday night which makes it diffiuclt to find a room for it without a particular minimum to cover, so I feel overwhelmed with all the info I have floating around.
Thanks for any help!
