Rehearsal Dinner Recap

Planning our wedding was, bar none, the most rewarding experience I’ve ever had. That’s not to say it wasn’t stressful at times, but seeing months and months of hard work come to life, was the best feeling ever.

I plan to do a couple of posts about different aspects of the wedding, and I wanted to start with one of my favorite parts- the rehearsal dinner!

One of the best things about our wedding venue, is that we had it from noon on Friday to noon on Sunday. This allowed us to get everything set up Friday afternoon, and have the rehearsal dinner there Friday night. We really just wanted to be able to eat, laugh, and relax with our people before our big day, so we didn't want anything too stuffy fancy.

The room was a long rectangle, with 5 vintage cars at the end. Because we were already using the rest of the space for the wedding setup (and didn't want to have to rearrange things after dinner was over), we arranged the rehearsal dinner tables right in front of the cars. 
We used 3 eight foot rectangle tables (for about 25 people), and used the same chairs that we rented for the actual wedding. 
Set up and take down really were a breeze!

The mini cake centerpieces and place settings were my absolute favorite details!

Aren't these mini naked cakes the cutest?? Annie is AMAZING, and dreamt these up herself! We were going to do a eucalyptus garland and candles down the middle of the table, but quickly nixed that when she offered these! 

Kraft paper place cards that I made w/ my Silhouette Cameo

Somehow in the shuffle, a few of the place cards got lost. :(

I just love how everything turned out, and I hope you guys do too!
I tried to link the different things that I used, but feel free to ask questions if you have any!
