I am looking for a rehearsal dinner venue close to East Grand Rapids (where the church is) or downtown (where the hotel is). We would like something affordable and not too fancy. We narrowed it down to Gardellas, Derby Station, or Uccellos on the beltline. I have heard great reviews of Gardellas but I'm a little worried about parking because it will be during art prize. I like Derby a Station and Uccellos but I don't know much about their event process and have heard mixed reviews. Does anyone have any insight on these places? Or have any other ideas for venues? I would love to do founders but they only have beer and some people in our wedding party don't like beer
thanks in advance for the help!
