Rob and I got married almost TWO years ago! I can’t believe it has already been that long. Now that I have my blog up and going, I really wanted to share the Rehearsal Dinner Invitation that I created for the evening before our special day.

On Friday, August 29, 2014, family and friends from ALL across the country came to Boulder, Colorado to celebrate. I still cannot believe how far people had come: Missouri, California, Montana, Alabama, Michigan, Texas! To have all the people we love in one spot at one time… it was surreal.

With Rob’s parents, Rob and I decided on a casual rehearsal dinner – we’re not the overly fancy type! We’d rather go for fun and relaxing. So we had a picnic style dinner in a beautiful city park in Boulder, set against the Flatiron mountains.

The table settings included red-and-white-checked tablecloths, black and red napkins and fun stripey straws. Table decorations included Mason jar lanterns wrapped in lace with tea lights inside, and little green Army men (Rob is an Army Officer). We served BBQ and picnic sides and drank soda, beer, and champagne.

The night flew by as we laughed, played, chatted, and caught up with old friends and family.
