Passport To Love: Rehearsal Dinner Details

Due to the early required time of our rehearsal, we had some down time at the hotel before heading to Blue Mesa for our rehearsal dinner.

MOH Navy, BM Philly, Mr. E and I left a little early so that we could set up the room before the guest started to arrive.  Thankfully we had Lynn there to capture all the action.

I made this sign the week of the wedding, most likely because I felt the need to make something that week.

Our escort cards were a hit and made finding a seat very quick and easy.

We kept the centerpieces very simple with a small vase (found in the dollar bin of Michael's) of red and white carnations and our DIY table numbers

We took a moment to leave our thumprints at the top of the wedding tree.

As our guests began to arrive, we greeted them and asked them to sign our wedding quilt and leave their thumbprint on our wedding tree.  There was a little confusion with some family members that thought they were only to leave their thumbprint on the test papers, but we were able to clear things up.

We mingled with drinks in our hands until it was time to eat.

Will you be adding any DIY aspects to your rehearsal dinner?
