It's official, my son is a married man!
The rehearsal dinner was Friday night and the wedding Saturday morning
Oh I have so much to show you, I'll start with the rehearsal dinner and then later in the week I'll show you the wedding
Let me do a quick recap ...Just incase you haven't been hanging on every blog post for the last year lol!
I hosted the rehearsal dinner at 903 Mills Market, a little cafe around the corner from my house in downtown Orlando. It's where my son and his wife (OK, that's weird, "Wife", OMG my son has a wife!) hung out when they were dating, and where I eat at least once a week
The restaurant closed at 5pm and as the sun was setting I set up for the 6pm dinner, the weather was perfect!
I made the tablecloths then used lace table toppers and vintage book center pieces...The tutorial is Here
We did appetizers in vintage cigar boxes, the little match boxes say "Bradley and Alicia, the perfect match" and are filled with Valentine conversation hearts
Remember the suitcase table I made..Tutorial HERE..It was a cigar bar for the "Boys"
My vintage lace covered pole lamp was used for lighting and coffee sacks for pillows on the bench, it was quite a hit!
We had a fabulous guitar player. When I did the Fancy Flea in Lakeland last April, I went for dinner with friends the night before at a local restaurant and Brian was playing, I hired him on the spot for the rehearsal dinner.
I brought my dress form "Miss Anita Man" (Say that fast) as added decor...(I hate the pic, but love my dress)
I hinged some old shutters for pics of the lovebirds
And the puppy bar was enjoyed by all of my furry guests
The food was fabulous! The owners of 903 Mills Market are from Rome and their pasta is out of this world!
I made the buffet table cover from lace curtains and hung lace curtains on a pole as a back drop.
The centerpiece was my table top dress form covered with vintage sheet music..Tutorial HERE...
I had 40 guests
And SOOOO much fun!
Oh lord, who's lap is my Mom sitting on now? I've got to watch her every minute!......Anyway, It was the perfect night before the big day
I'll be back with wedding pictures soon!
Thank you for all of your comments and encouragement..... You have enhanced this wedding journey more than you can possibly know!
