The “Before They Say I Do” BBQ
Posted on September 3, 2014
On August 1st we hosted the Soloman’s wedding rehearsal dinner. This event was so special because of all of the love that they put into it.
First things first, let’s just talk about this decor! It was WONDERFUL! This family did an excellent job of combining rustic chic with personal touches.
Before guests even entered the building they got a taste of the cute details that were in store.
The banner initials were not only a nice touch, but they are also great because the couple can hang them in their home afterwards. Party decor that doubles as home decor is always a great investment!
I think it goes without saying that we absolutely LOVED the name of this event.
They used it on the invite to right outside the door. Such a great touch! Plus, it helped set the theme for evening.
The decor inside was fantastic as well. Every square inch was covered with meaningful details and memorabilia. They met at the University of Arkansas, so of course there were Razorbacks sprinkled throughout.
When guests entered they were asked to sign the wedding window.
As stated in the description next to it, the window represents the past, present and future of your life. You can read it’s entire description right here. Such a neat idea and a wonderful keepsake for the newlyweds!
Of course, we adored the use of burlap and garland.
Once again, more things that they can display in their new home together!
Also, see this barn wood?
We also LOVED what they did with our barn doors! It so fun seeing how each wedding decorates them.
They really knocked it out of the park with their decor. Their cocktail napkins were even some of the cutest we had ever seen!
Even cuter was the party favors.
The groom is a geologist, so they had chocolate rock candy for party favors. So clever!
Doesn’t that idea rock? ;o)
As for the centerpieces, they were rustic and chic.
Isn’t it awesome how just a little ribbon can completely transform some mason jars?
We adored how they tied in the Razorback’s colors with this fun chevron table overlay. It added a nice pop of color and some whimsy!
This was also at every place setting.
The picture in the background is of their family barn. The message written on it is so incredibly sweet! We just loved what it said about their guests being their favorite people in the world. That is what a rehearsal dinner needs to be, very intimate and personal.
Their guests were also treated to a delicious BBQ dinner, plus some ice cream and brownies for dessert. This is a nice switch up since your guests will be enjoying cake the next night.
Overall, this was just a wonderful rehearsal dinner filled with so much love!
Congrats again to Mr. and Mrs. Soloman! You two have something really special!
