The rehearsal dinner is not mandatory, so if money is tight, don’t worry. You can have a small get together at your house or the parentals’ house. Most officiants like to go through what will happen the day of the wedding and most couples decide to do the night before the wedding. The run through is great because if someone from the bridal party is form out of town, this give them an opportunity to feel comfortable. The rehearsal dinners are typically hosted by the groom’s parents and also gives the bride and groom an opportunity to thank their family and friends.
I love the way the Bride and Groom hangers are decorated. They are sold together as a set and you can buy them here on Etsy.
1. Buy brown paper bags from your local party store or grocery store.
2. Buy heart shaped stencil as well as spray paint from your local Arts & Crafts or Michael’s.
3. You can buy the centerpiece wooden boxes at a flower shop, local dry flower shop, or an arts & crafts store.
These Mr. & Mrs. mason jars are great for a ranch, outdoor, or summer themed wedding.

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert’s wedding in a ranch. The decor is absolutely beautiful… The lighting made such a difference and created a completely different feel & atmosphere in the room.
“After the big kiss, be ready for this; the couple will smile as they walk down the aisle. And that is your cue to toss high in the air; these petals of love for this happiest pair!”
Great idea for your guests to throw as you walk away with your groom.
It’s a long exposure shot with sparklers. The couple has to stand there very, very still and someone runs around them with a sparkler. You can kind of see a figure on the right where the light starts from.
Invitations should typically go out 8-10 weeks before your wedding day. 8-10 weeks gives your guests more than enough time to make travel arrangements, hire a babysitter, and to clear their schedules. This amount of time is also a great help to you and your groom. You will be able to get an idea of how many people will be coming to your wedding and you can also start on your seating chart.
