First, I have to say thanks to you ladies for some earlier advice on our rehearsal dinner. FILs had originally picked out a restaurant they wanted to use, then backed out of hosting and decided to buy us a cake instead. The cost of the dinner was not equal to our cake budget, so we were worried that we would have to cut the rehearsal list to be able to host a dinner.
Instead we're now doing a casual pizza/family style Italian dinner that will cost $10/person, and couldn't be happier. My only question is, how far should we ask people to drive to the rehearsal dinner? It's only about 15 minutes away, but in Friday evening Cleveland traffic, it could end up being a longer drive. Not only is it one of our favorite pizza places, but anything closer to the venue will be more costly. Would this be too annoying for our guests?
