Sarah, the owner of True Event, was featured in Vogue! They have asked the experts their thoughts on the rehearsal dinner protocol. Make sure to read the whole article here.

Are you struggling with who exactly to invite to your rehearsal dinner? Many of our couples wonder if it is proper etiquette to invite everyone to both the rehearsal dinner and to the big day. It can often times be overwhelming to have to accommodate that growing list for the whole weekend. Though, many experts will say if you are having a destination wedding it is best to invite the whole group to the rehearsal dinner.

Sarah, owner of True Event, suggests that keeping the rehearsal dinner to just the bridal party and close family keeps it intimate and prevents this event from becoming a duplicate wedding. A great way to incorporate all of your guests is to host a welcome party after the rehearsal dinner is over. Starting the rehearsal dinner around 6pm, leaves enough time to invite the remainder of the guests to a welcome reception from 8:30m- 11:00pm. The welcome reception should have passed hors d’oeuvres, desserts, and cocktails.

We are so excited to share Anne and Will’s wedding featured on Carrots and Cake. Anne and Will worked closely will True Event to plan their special day. They decided to host their wedding at the Weekapaug Inn, because of its seaside location and capacity to host all of their special guests. They decided to use use mauve, silver, grey, blues and dusty pinks to grasp the organic and coastal elegance Anne saw for the day. They selected linens from LA Tavola, including baylis rain silver for the round guest tables and the velvet rose runners for the farm tables, that would complement the couple’s style.

Hana Floral Design worked with many different florals to incorporate dusty pinks and hues of greys into the florals for the day. After guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the lawns, they made their way to the gorgeous Sperry Tent, where they dined on some the Weekapaug Inn finest. Press Play provided the guests with upbeat entertainment for the rest of the evening. It was such a romantic seaside wedding for guests to remember for years to come!
