State fair themed rehearsal dinner
Kelly Oshiro of Santa Barbara Chic designed just about the cutest rehearsal dinner. It was a peanuts, popcorn, corn dog and fries gone pretty kind of party, and we’re completely smitten with it. The details are just soo fun. And did we mention Jose Villa photographed it all? Yep, you guys are in for a real treat with this soiree. Just another reminder that the rehearsal dinner is another party you can have fun planning for. Kelly says, The client wanted a fun rehearsal dinner atmosphere and asked for a state fair theme. I ran with it and had Bella Vista make custom red and white cabanas for our food and drink booths. Custom chalkboard signs with custom decals were made, and I worked with Duo Events to create some upscale carnival food.
For escort cards, Kelly filled wood boxes with peanuts and tucked in the pretty cards Betsy Dunlap scripted.

We know what you’re thinking… if this was the rehearsal dinner, what did the actual wedding look like, right? Us too!
