Q: My daughter wants to have a casual rehearsal dinner (pizza and bowling) but my husband is worried about his parent's comfort. What should we do?

A: While the "dinner" can be anything from a five-course meal at a restaurant to, yes, pizza and bowling, it's the host's responsibility to think of guests' comfort. In your case, try this compromise: Have a casual supper right after the rehearsal for close family and friends, followed by bowling for anyone who's up for a few frames.
