TO the Feathered Arrow blog. I'M Kari! A WEDDING PLANNER, PODCAST HOST, BIZ EDUCATOR, AND A LOVER OF COFFEE, ALL THINGS OUTDOORS + A SUCKER FOR A GOOD LOVE STORY.
Hey friends! You might recognize this couple, Roxanne + Jess, from their engagement photos so I’m overjoyed to share the details behind their rehearsal dinner! (Stay tuned for next week when I share all about their wedding!) I’ve previously shared what to expect during your wedding rehearsal but planning the dinner is an entirely different beast to tackle. One thing I love about how Roxanne + Jess planned this event was that it was hosted by the same Palm Springs venue, giving guests a chance to get know the layout before the big day. Additionally, Jess + Roxanne used a lot of the same vendors for both rehearsal dinner and wedding day, which I highly recommend to all my couples. The more opportunities you can utilize to work with your vendors, the more honed into your style + design your vendors will be!
When you have clients as sylish as Roxanne + Jess, you know every event and element is going to be epic! Not one to shy away from color, they brought the bright hues to the desert. Another amazing element was instead of simple cocktail napkins, they printed “2 truths and a lie” games on their napkins for guests to engage with! Such a fun idea to get family + friends mingling (and break the ice).
