Traditional Family Dinner

Want something a little more intimate? A traditional family dinner is the way to go — what better way to celebrate the big news than with a room full of family and close friends! Make reservations at a favorite restaurant or make it a potluck dinner at someone's home.

Double your invite's value (this one is from minted.com) by including a drink recipe--perhaps the signature cocktail you'll be serving at your wedding. Create an über-romantic setting by setting up a few twinkling lights (or asking the restaurant to scatter a few low-flame votives around the table). For extra personal touches, try serving the couple's favorite foods or cooking some family classics.
