rehearsal dinner invites!

Anita sent over the rehearsal dinner final draft last night- and I AM IN LOVE.

Originally, we had looked for restaurants fit to accommodate 60ish people for our rehearsal dinner. It became clear it was difficult to find an affordable place to hold our dinner- and even at the places that could accommodate 60 people, we were worried people wouldn’t have a chance to really mingle and get to know each other. This was really important to me because this will really be the first time our families have met and I don’t want people to just sit down and not move from their seats…

Thus Dan’s sister came up with the brilliant idea to have a huge white tent put up in the back yard and cater a dinner in! LOVE IT! Much more relaxed and comfortable! If any of ya’ll are familiar with a Texas sunset, you’ll understand why I fell in love with this idea.

So, when I contacted Anita I told her what I had in mind- something western feeling and fun. This is what she came up with and she hit the nail on the head…again!


**please excuse all the ugly blurring out…I never know what information crazy people look for so this looks kinda bad**
