Rehearsal + Rehearsal Dinner

Every wedding calls for a wedding rehearsal.  You know, it's like the walk through before the big production! We chose to have our rehearsal the day before, that way it would be fresh in our minds and we were already booked to stay at our hotel that evening.  I started off the morning laying out by the pool.  I mean why not, the weather was fabulous!

 Then got ready for the evening.  My beautiful friend Jewel did my hair.

The wedding rehearsal has begun!

"This rehearsal is like a kindergarten fire drill"..... and that it was. 

Officiate: Don Johnson

It was not easy getting everyone to pay attention and do what was asked.  (Mostly the guys).  It seriously felt like a kindergarten firedrill with little kids running all over the place.  Luckily it only took about 45 minutes to go over everything twice so everyone could remember where to go, what to do, and so on.

We chose to have our rehearsal dinner at Yard House (which was perfect because it was walking distance across the street from our venue.)  I custom designed menus and chose certain food options for our guests to choose from. 

My mother in-law bought custom cake pops for everyone with our wedding colors (Tiffany Blue & Coral) and one Bride and Groom one too! They were a hit and so adorable!

We came back to our room after dinner and of course had a photo shoot on one of our balconies.  The skies looked gorgeous how could we not?  Then my wonderful maid of honor pressed all of the girls dresses and robes that I gifted them so they would be pressed and perfect for my wedding day.  I went to bed early so I would be well rested and ready to take on the day!
