Rehearsal Dinner ideas

Diane Harman

My son is getting married in 6 weeks!  We are hosting the dinner at an Italian Restaurant. They will have a single red rose on all the tables, but that's it.  They won't let us decorate, which I am fine with. But I would like some kind of elegant gift/chocolates something on the table. Maybe with something written inside? What about place cards yea/nay?
 
The wedding is going to be uber formal, so I am not sure if I make things for the tables, if it will bother my soon to be dil. 
 
My son and his fiance have something planned with a movie projector-not sure what.
 
So do we just pay for it, or do we plan it all out?  My mom is no longer around, and my dad is clueless.
Thanks
Diane

How about chocolate dipped strawberries with swirls of icing colored to
match their colors?  Just a thought.

What about these little chocolates boxes? You could do the box in black, clear lid maybe a little gold or red with the candy in it to keep to the restaurant color scheme. 


I made some for a little get together. I left the ribbon off to see the candy and the colors were just to match the SAB stuff but you could get the dove candy or lindt truffles in them and they went together very fast.

Should these questions should be directed to your son and "soon to be dil" before you decide what to do.  It is their wedding...
 
I think who pays what is worked out by the parents  Traditionally the grooms family pays for rehearsal dinner but most couples don't follow tradition anymore..

Re: SU!: RE: Rehearsal Dinner ideas

I'm sorry about the wording and leaving confusion-  We are paying for it. I meant, do we do other things besides pay for it, do we plan the evening as well.  I was hoping for other advice while I was seeking creative advice. I wanted to know the protocol from those who have been there before I did or said something wrong.

My dil2b is extremely busy right now. She is finishing her 2nd yr of law school. She is planning the entire wedding with a wedding planner. That's why I don't want to talk to her too much about it. She will feel she needs to plan it too. It will probably freak her out.

Ok, now I understand what you are dealing with!!  I think your idea of chocolates is excellent, there are so many creative but simple and elegant things you could do. EG A chocolate truffle in a little box made with the envelope board  or set on pretty plates; or a little clear bag or tulle bag of personalized Hershey Kisses - you could make the little sticker in MDS or we might even have a stamp that fits.  I saw this done recently.  Your idea of place cards is a great idea if people will have assigned seat and they could match the design of your candy treat.

Diane,

I made these for a customer's son's wedding a couple of month's ago. They were favors but also served to help decorate the tables. She said everyone loved them. It is the couple's engagement picture with their names, wedding date and a favorite quote. You could use MDS to add the text. I just printed the pictures on whisper white card stock, glued them to blank coasters (mine are 3 1/2"), and attached an easel (basic black 3 1/2 X 9, scored at 3 1/2, 4 1/2 and 5 1/2) to the back.

Oops! The easel measurements should be 3 1/2 X 9 1/2, scored at 3 1/2, 4 1/2, 5 1/2, and 9. That will leave a 1/2" flap for adhesive.
