LARGE Reception Dinner
I will be getting married in Las Vegas next month. It is getting down to panic-mode. I had my mind set on hosting the Rehearsal Dinner at Vintner's Grill for about 20 people. Both families would now like to be involved and the guest list has climbed up to 60. The restaurant can still accommodate us, but given the distance from The Strip, and my consideration of our guests' travel times and mode of travelling (ie. I cannot expect everyone will be renting a vehicle during their stay in Vegas), I feel as though I should look at other options.
I have inquired about Mon Ami Gabi in Paris and the minimum for food and beverage (before tax and gratuity) they are asking for is astronomical. Given the fixed menu they sent me, our food cost would just be half of the minimum and I don't believe we would be able to drink the rest.
My family tends to have higher standards for their food, but I don't want them to have to break the bank. For example, VG's prices were around $50 to $60 per person (which was perfect) and the Wynn's restaurant's menus start at $85 per person. I totally understand the reason for the difference but obviously am hoping to stay around the VG prices. So... something not necessarily ON The Strip, but closer than where VG is located, and decent food?
