The Rehearsal Dinner

I am officially at my rehearsal dinner... but I planned this post to happen while I was there - so i could share all the details with you and not spoil the surprises for the people who are coming! :)

Let me first say... my Future MIL, Cindy, did the most incredible job planning this thing. She was so excited she could hardly handle it, and that made me feel really special. Here are some of the big details!

Here is the beautiful restaurant that it is being hosted at:
(La Perla Bistro)
We have the entire restaurant to ourselves... Cindy organized it so there are 5 different food stations: A Mediteranean Food Station, A Mexican Station, An Italian Station, An Asian Station, & An American Station. At each station, there is a different wine paired with the food for everyone to try. Cindy wanted everyone to get up and walk around to the different stations and chat with each other. (TL and I did a food tasting earlier this year... some of the most incredible food we had ever tasted!)
There is also a live band playing... they are incredible! :)

Here is the Dress:

The Favors are absolutely magical. Cindy went out and got TL and I our own label of wine. There are 4 different engagement pictures on the wine - and one bottle with our names and wedding date engraved in the glass. Everyone attending gets a bottle (or two).




I also will be giving away the gifts I made for my bridesmaids, the gifts TL bought for his groomsmen, and the gifts we got for our Ushers, special attendants, ring bearer, and flower girl. That post coming soon. :)

The most special part: 60 of our closest family and friends will be with us to celebrate the night before the biggest day in our lives so far.

I am so happy and so in love...
and very happy to share it with you!
