Our Rehersal Dinner

I was finally able to upload all of my pictures so the final wedding post is here! Our venue, Lord Thompson Manor actually throws a wedding weekend. Since there is not much around this part of Connecticut, everyone comes to stay at the manor on Friday and leaves on Sunday. It doesn't get much more convenient than that! The really fun thing about the rehersal dinners here is that they are themed. Our theme was Tuscan Nights so it was all Italian all the way. It was a spectacular start to the weekend with close family and friends.

To go along with our theme, my mom and I made these simple invites with embossed grapes on rustic-looking cards from Paper Source. We embossed the envelopes too!

My favorite part of the night? The LONG table that everyone was able to sit around.

The details

My mother-in-law actually monogrammed the ribbon on the favor boxes that served as the seating cards! Seriously, I could not get over the fact that she did this.

My sister and I made wine for all the couples as a favor. We added the labels and a name tag for everyone to go along with our Italian theme for the night!

The magnificent room!

I hope everyone enjoyed the wedding posts lately since I had such a great time reminiscing here. Up next, some inspiration for our new home and projects.
