Americana Country Style BBQ Rehearsal Dinner
Whether having a destination wedding or a local wedding, creating a fun and relaxed rehearsal dinner to welcome your guests and kick off the festivities is a great way to set the tone. For Melissa & Scott’s La Quinta Resort wedding we featured here we created a down home country style bbq rehearsal dinner complete with checkered table clothes, sunflowers and of course some sweet cherry pie to get the weekend started right.
For this summer time rehearsal dinner we created a country Americana style BBQ complete with bandana & checkered linens, pulled pork sliders, BLT’s and corn on the cob for a truly down home, casual celebration before the big day.
To create this look we combined a ton of bright sunflowers in galvanized buckets and watering cans accented with bandanas and tossed around salted peanuts to give the guests a colorful yet fun and relaxed vibe. We worked with the chef’s at La Quinta resort to create a fun country menu including pulled pork, french fries with dips, corn on the cob, grilled cheese and other fun small bites which were easy to grab and mingle at the same time.
Guest’s were welcomed to cool off from the desert heat with pink strawberry lemonade we served in mason jars as well as buckets of icey cold coca-colas in vintage glass bottles.
For a super down home country style dessert bar we offered guests an array of mini-pies in apple, blueberry, cherry and blackberry along side big fresh slices of watermelon and fresh strawberries.
Mix in some country tunes and bales of hay for a perfectly fun and casual way to welcome your guests to your wedding weekend!
