/ REHEARSAL DINNERS /

Rehearsal Dinners 101: Choosing the Perfect Venue The rehearsal dinner is a casual or formal gathering for the wedding party before the wedding that provides an opportunity for both families to get to know one another in a fun, relaxed environment. It’s a time to mingle, do a gift exchange, offer toasts, and provide some last-minute instruction about the actual wedding details. Rehearsal dinners vary as much as the wedding itself. They can be formal banquets or garden parties, casual picnics, or even a BBQ.

WHO TO INVITE Turn the dinner into a fabulous welcome party - if your wedding is mostly local

14 Rexburg Bride // Spring 2020

friends and family but a few key people traveled far to come to your wedding, extend the invitation to them as a thank you for their extra effort. If you’re throwing a destination wedding or a party where at least half of the guests are from out of town, show your appreciation by inviting everyone to some kind of night-before festivity.

WHERE TO HAVE IT A sit-down dinner at a hotel ballroom or nice restaurant is the norm, but there’s no right or wrong when you plan your rehearsal dinner. Restaurants are ideal for


many because couples can focus on the more meaningful details - knowing that the food is taken care of! However, relaxing in a nice backyard, at an art museum, or even on the beach are perfectly acceptable locations. It just depends on your style and budget.

SOME POINTERS

from the pros!

WHEN TO INVITE YOUR GUESTS To help your guests manage their schedules, send out invitations with, or shortly after, your wedidng invitations. This will not only help your guests plan their travel, but ensure timely RSVPs.

HOW TO INVITE YOUR GUESTS If your rehearsal dinner will be at a high end restaurant, hotel ballroom, etc., you should send formal invitations. If, on the other hand, your rehearsal dinner will be more casual, such as an intimate gathering at your future in-laws home, then you can be more casual with your invitations. You can send e-vites or send DIY invites. Make sure it’s clear to your guests where they need to be and when. Your guests will want to dress appropriately, so details are important!

6 Things to Consider When

Choosing a Wedding Cake!

CHECK WITH THE VENUE Some wedding venues don’t allow you to bring in an outside cake. It’s important to check with your wedding venue first, and find out if there’s a fee for not getting your cake through them. You’d be surprised how much it can cost per slice to make arrangements to bring in your own cake.

SIZE IT CAREFULLY You should have a good idea of how many guests you expect at your reception. Let your cake decorator know that, as well as how confident you are in that number. You want to avoid getting more cake than you need, but you also don’t want to be short handed. Take the advice of your cake decorator on this topic. They do this for a living!

SHOP IT AROUND Wedding cakes are an important part of your wedding, and like everything else, you should shop around for the best service. The best service isn’t always just who has the lowest price. You want to know how easy it is to communicate with the cake decorator. You’ll also want to read ample reviews to know how others feel about their experiences.

THE FROSTING Fondant does NOT replace buttercream on cakes. It is a beautiful ‘skin’ placed over the

20 Rexburg Bride // Spring 2020

outside layer of buttercream or ganache, providing a perfectly smooth surface with a stronger structure, more heat resistance, & a whole new world of decorating options. Without a smooth layer of frosting underneath, fondant won’t stick to the cake properly & will show every imperfection. Fondant does not affect the taste or the inside of the cake at all, so design the outside of the cake to your heart’s content. A good baker will have several generous layers of buttercream filling between the cake layers as well as on the outside underneath the fondant. Very few weddingsized cake slices even touch the outside of the cake, so it’s important that the inside has a nice cake-to-buttercream ratio. With cakes, as with people, it’s what’s INSIDE that counts!

WEATHER & LOCATION Your options may be limited based on if you’re having an indoor or outdoor wedding.If you’re having your reception in July at a outdoor wedding venue, then you’ll need to avoid buttercream or whipped cream frosting. Nothing is worse than an icky mess that doesn’t hold up in warmer weather.

VENDOR COLLABORATION Many couples choose to put fresh flowers on their wedding cakes. If this is the case, you need to make sure your florist and cake decorator are able to communicate. Make sure you know whether it’s the florist or the cake decorator that’s going to add these final touches.

HOW LONG BEFORE MY WEDDING SHOULD I SEND OUT INVITATIONS?

WHAT IF I FEEL SUPER AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA? WHAT SHOULD I DO?

HOW DO I WORK WITH MY MAKEUP ARTIST TO GET THE LOOK I WANT FOR BRIDAL MAKEUP?

This is a very common question, and the best answer is: It’s best to get started as soon as you have all of your text and information. Assuming you’re working with a shorter timeframe, generally speaking you want your guests to receive an invitation no later than 3-4 weeks before the wedding date. Of course you’ll want to give a little more time to guests who may not have access to social media, who may have to plan extended travel, or if your wedding date falls on or near a holiday or popular wedding weekend. Also, if you need guests to RSVP, you’ll want to get the invites to them 3-4 weeks before that RSVP date!

Absolutely bring this up with your photographer before any sessions! They can give you a breakdown of how they personally work with you to help you feel comfortable in front of the camera. I for one always reassure my couples that I help them with posing 100%! I always let you know how I’d like you to stand, where to look, what kind of smile I’m after, and especially where to put your hands! That one seems to worry clients a lot! I describe how I help you pose and what my techniques are to then get more natural images after more posed shots. I strive to put your mind at ease long before we ever have our session.

Communication is key. Look through their work, and find several faces you like. By looking at their actual work you see their skill set, and abilities. When looking focus on faces with the same eye, skin, and hair color as yourself. If you don’t find exactly what you’re looking for in their work look online following the same guidelines. Do a trial run if you are unsure. Most makeup artists offer a package including a trial. This day is about you don’t be afraid to say you need changes, even if they did everything you asked. As a makeup artist my goal is to make you feel like you have never been more beautiful.
