Wedding Wednesday: Don’t forget the Rehearsal Dinner

Happy Wedding Wednesday Everyone!

With all of the planning that goes into a wedding it can be easy to overlook certain details in the events leading up to the big day. However, when it comes to the rehearsal dinner it is important to remember that this is a time for just you and your closest friends and family. Whether you are eating at your venue, your favorite restaurant or mom’s house you should be sure that the flowers look spectacular! At L’Atelier Rouge we think that the rehearsal dinner is the perfect time to play with the flowers -do something a little different! Below are some beautiful arrangements from a rehearsal dinner at Victor’s Cafe, a Cuban restaurant here in the city. Beautiful photos courtesy of Gruber Photographers.
