Rehearsal Dinner Tips (Part 1 of 17)

First. For anyone asking “What the F*ck is a rehearsal dinner?!” - it’s a dinner/gathering that usually takes place the night before your wedding day. It’s called a ‘rehearsal dinner’ because it generally happens after your ceremony ‘rehearsal’ (you know – when you and your wedding party all ‘rehearse’ walking down the aisle and practice a run-through of the ceremony.)

So. That’s what a rehearsal dinner is – now – how is yours going to be? Right. Other than planning the actual wedding – at some point you might realize that you also have to plan this event. Of course – it can be as fancy/large/small/simple as you’d like. It doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive – but it can be both if that’s what you want. I know what you’re saying – too many options. Too many decisions! MORE DECISIONS TO MAKE?! F*cken wedding planning!

Why should you have a rehearsal dinner? Why can’t you just tell everyone to go away and find their own food?

Well… your wedding day is Crazy. BONKERS. You won’t really be able to spend too much time with everyone – and many of the people who don’t live nearby or traveled the furthest to be there, will arrive the day before. A rehearsal dinner is another opportunity to spend time with those people that LOVE you. LET THEM.

Feed them. Drink with them. Catch up. Take photos with them – it doesn’t matter that you’re not all as dressed up as you will be the next day – the point is that these are 2-3 relaxed hours where you can hangout with your friends & family without your amazing photographer pulling you away for yet another portrait session!

SO. What type of rehearsal dinner should have? WHAT THERE ARE DIFFERENT TYPES?! Yes. And we’ll go over everything in parts 2-17.

We Make Amazing Wedding Photos for You

I f*cken love wedding cake. I mean sure – I don’t always get to get some because well sometimes there just isn’t enough to go around. I’m supposed to wait for all of the guests to get their piece of cake first, and then I have to offer some to my 2nd/3rd shooter, and then if there’s any left, I can have at it. Oh. And. I. DO. Because come on! It’s wedding cake! IT’S WEDDING CAKE! How many other times do you get to find out what $300, $500, $700 CAKE taste like? ALSO.

$700 CAKE?! Yeah! That sh*t better taste damn good and be pretty for my photos because otherwise you might as well have gone to Publix and just had them wipe off ‘Happy Birthday’ and stick your cake toppers on top. (because Publix cake IS amazing yo!)

Have you ever had $700 cake? I have. LOTS. I’m fancy like that.

Our creative director Joy told me I shouldn’t just write complete nonsense in this post (like I usually do) and that I should at least try to throw in some useful bit of information. So here. Some useful bit of information.

How do you go about creating, picking, deciding on your wedding cake? I don’t know.

But hey – don’t stress out about how your cake looks. Stress out about how it tastes. There are many ‘cake designers’ out there and not all of them know how to make good tasting cakes. And dammit – if you’re going to spend $700 on a cake, it better taste good. Right? RIGHT. Suckas. ALSO. What color do you want your cake? White? That’s classic and formal and romantic and modern. WTF?! I KNOW! You’re like “I just want a big good tasting and pretty wedding cake” and your cake designer is like “oh well would you like a romantic cake? what about a formal one? or how about a formally romantic wedding cake?” Yeah… can you throw in a unicorn with laser eyes? I’d pay $700 for a cake like that. Oh and it has to be a purple unicorn.

The best part about making decisions on your wedding cake? THE CAKE TASTINGS. You know – where you try out the different flavor cakes from a specific cake-maker. Basically an excuse to eat lots of cake on a Wednesday afternoon for no other reason THAN TO EAT CAKE. Getting married is worth it just for that part alone.

I guess you could also have pie instead of a cake. or cupcakes. whatever. this post is about CAKE. Shut up about pie and cupcakes.

Also. Sometimes people have the colors on their cake do that matchy-match thing with the rest of their decor from their wedding. You can do that too. You should do that. It makes everything look nice. And people like nice looking things.

As you can see from these photos – our brides don’t always give a f*ck about the Geneva Cake Convention rules and did whatever they wanted – and they rocked the sh*t out of their wedding cakes. I know I was beating back my assistant for a piece.

Finally – buttercream over fondant ANY and EVERY day. Come on – even the word Buttercream PWNS over the word fondant. (does anyone even say pwns anymore?)

Different Styles & Types of Bridesmaid Dresses

Bridesmaids dresses. I could literally go on forever about the subject. They’re obviously number 7 on my list of top 10 things to talk about EVER. Sadly – it’s Friday so I have to keep this post short. Sadly I won’t be able to tell you how much I think that bridesmaids dresses have come a long way in the last decade. As an expert in bridesmaid-dress-historology I can knowledgeably say that we’re at the point where you can basically say ‘F*ck that’ to many things about your wedding – especially the bridesmaid dress-as-matching-uniform for your ladies. Heck. Your ‘bridesmaids’ don’t even have to all be ladies. Right? RIGHT.

It can even be as simple as saying to your bridesmaids ‘Here’s a color. Get a nice dress. I’ll see you there.’

So here’s a gallery of bridesmaids and their brides (and even a groom) so you can see what they look like – all together and not just on an invisible model. Because sure the bride is supposed to look brilliantly amazing on her wedding day – but that doesn’t mean the bridesmaids have to wear burlap sacks. Besides. Groomsmen are often too cool to really let loose so we all know bridesmaids are the ones you count on to MAKE THE PARTY HAPPEN later at the reception. So at least let them look good.
