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**

  5. hi sweet girl!! darn you with all of that blurring, how am i supposed to get my stalk on??

    srsly tho, those look beautiful (and PS i finally responded to dan on facebook...i am such a flake with that kind of thing; if i don't do it immediately i totally forget it!) and i LOVE the idea of a tented rehearsal dinner...tents are so beautiful and give you so much decorating freedom! y'all will have the cutest dinner ever judging by those decorations :)

  6. oops by those invitations is what i meant to say...hahah i got caught up in the tent decorating idea!
