Rehearsal Dinner Help
hi all - we have already sent out save the dates for our wedding in september (mostly because our wedding is the boat show weekend in newport and virtually everyone is OOT) but now I am rethinking the rehearsal dinner. we have the coast guard house in narragansett booked right now (FI's mom only put a $100 deposit). after thinking about it and esp while doing save the dates - I really don't think it is going to hold all the ppl we need it to - it only holds about 40. I think that we are going to have more people than that. we are going to have naturally the bridal party and spouses/girlfriends/boyfriends, anyone else in the ceremony, readers, etc. priest and immediate family. that alone may be 40 ppl. let alone ppl who I know are coming in from out of town and are going to be here. I know everyone is different with who they invite to the dinner but I really don't think it will be enough. I think I will change the location - but to where? the church is in Kingston and guest accomodations are in Middletown. suggestions for another restauant? It also worries me a little to change the place because I don't want FI's mom to think she can invite a bunch more people - not that she would do that or anything but I think we will be cramped. I know I have time to figure this out - but it's been on my mind. any help is appreciated, thanks!
