Beach rehearsal dinner party inspiration | 100 Layer Cake

More & more, couples are asking for creativity styled peripheral events to compliment the wedding day itself and a completely different experience for guests. For this inspirational shoot, GATHER Events took a fun alternative approach to a traditional rehearsal dinner. They were inspired by the contrast of the warm and the cool elements of a bonfire on a Southern California beach transitioning from winter to spring.

Pharmacie’s hot drinks kept the crowd toasty and offered a fresh take on the SoCal hand-crafted cocktail.

Cool, oceany blue hues were chosen for all of the furniture and accessories displays. The vintage china pattern with a pinecone motif was chosen from Borrowed Blu‘s collection as a nod to the final farewell of winter.

From GATHER Events:

The rehearsal dinner/day-after brunch can provide great opportunities to throw a bit more whimsy and fun into the wedding weekend and really let your personalities shine. Guests will love the unexpected approach to a simple pre or post wedding event!
