A Patriotic Rehearsal Dinner "Barbecue"


For a wedding on July 4th, a Patriotic barbecue is a great theme for a rehearsal dinner!  This one was held indoors - who says a barbecue has to be outside??


Guests arrived to find a fun patriotic balloon arch directed them into the room. Next to the arch, bunting and balloons decorated the seating card table.


Inside the room, patriotic balloons hung from the ceiling. There were a lot of speeches and a video planned for the evening, so we didn't want bouquets of balloons on the tables.  This kept anyone from having a blocked view, but still allowed for us to have fun with balloons!


A caricature of the bride and groom as Lady Liberty and Uncle Sam, sitting on a skimmer hat were great centerpieces on the tables!  By the end of the evening they were being worn by all the guests!  Tablecloths were white and napkins in blue and white were rolled for a fun fireworks feel.


Favors were "barbecues to go" with gummy hotdogs and hamburgers.  They were set at each seat as a fun favor for the guests.


We added more balloons next to the buffet, including hot dog, hamburger and grill Mylar balloons.  On the menu were burgers, hot dogs, salad, lots of fruit and of course, apple pie for dessert.


It was an all American evening for the bride and groom and all their guests!
