Wedding Wednesday - Rehearsal

Our rehearsal was really laid back. I mean, we weren't getting married in a church and it was outside. Basically, we had one because my uncle (who had been ordained online) had never performed a wedding before and we had to determine where people would stand and check out the sound system. Oh, and we could decorate the room so, we decided a quickie rehearsal and a good dinner was the way to go.

Our photographer came as well, to get a feel for pictures, lighting and what not. Everyone in the wedding party was able to make it and a few aunts and uncles came to help decorate. Yay.

the gang.. :)

After the rehearsal, we headed to this realllly good Italian place for a rehearsal dinner put on by our parents. We ordered about 5 different kinds of pizza? I am not sure of the number I can't remember, bread sticks, salad and pasta. Everyone ate what as much or as little as they wanted. We may have had dessert, but I don't remember.

After, we were done eating we gave out our gifts to our bridesmaids and groomsmen. I gave my girls, earrings and a necklace to wear in the wedding and Anthony gave his guys a beer mug. Real original, I know. We were going to give our parents a night at a hotel up north but realized they would never get around to using it, so we got them each a half-season of tickets for the local minor league baseball team.

The town we got married in, is known as having the most bars per capita, so after dinner on the famous street we headed down the road and popped into some bars and to the local martini bar and enjoyed some beverages all together.

I think around 12 or 1 we started breaking up, and I headed to my best-friends house with most of the girls and my husband left to go back to our house with his cousin.. and that is how the last day of singledom ended for me.. ;)

Despite my lack of enjoyment in planning my own wedding, I love reading your wedding wednesdays! We are also not getting married in a church but we are doing a rehearsal because one of our friends is doing the ceremony and he's never done one before either :) Your RD looks awesome too!

The rehearsal dinner is one of my fave parts of the wedding weekend. I like that it's a smaller, more intimate group. Sounds like you had a wonderful rehearsal!! it's been fun learning all about your wedding!

Aww sounds like a great rehearsal. The only wedding rehearsal I remember specifically is Eric's sisters and it was a major gong show. Following the rehearsal we were all up until 3 am making and printing programs and washing the wine glasses. Ugh!

LOL - a beer mug! The funniest part is I'm sure the boys liked it ;) I love the idea of earrings and necklace though - that's what my cousin gave me and I wear them all the time!

I'm glad you had a nice rehearsal! Ours was a mess, but I didn't complain. We got married on a rooftop on a Sunday night, so the rehearsal was Saturday evening. Another couple was having their ceremony on said roof that Saturday afternoon, but we were assured they would be finished in plenty of time.

We waited and waited, and were finally informed that their ceremony hadn't even started! They had pushed it back by over two hours. We ended up doing on run-thru in the lobby of the building so we could make our dinner reservations on time!

(It worked out okay, though, and everyone kept saying what a good attitude I had about it, and how they would have been pissed.) :)
