Hi all! I've searched through the posts and can't really find an answer to my question. So I want to have the meet & greet dinner where everyone comes and pays for themselves. I really just wanted to get everyone together but we cannot afford another dinner for our guests after the reception. I was wondering if anyone has experience setting that up with a restaurant. We won't have more than 50 people. Do you just call and make a reservation for 50 and let them know it will be everyone paying for themselves or do we all just show up and hope they can accomodate us? I guess I'm unsure how to reserve a space at a restaurant without having to pay an f&b minimum because of the large number of guests. Any thoughts or suggestions will be super helpful! Also, I'm not that particular on the restaurant or buffet right now so any past experiences/ideas are great! Thanks all!
