After all our pondering with our large bridal party we decided to book a private room at Memphis Championship Barbecue!
Their private room called "The Porch" it's all ours, hooray!
my daughter sneaking into the pic again lol.
This place is so awesome! Ray & I love the BBQ there and its seriously one of our fave restaurants in town. It was his idea (it was both of ours but I will let him take credit here). And we are going to have a 4th of July theme for our rehearsal dinner since our wedding will be on the 4th and our guests will be missing their regular barbecues.
We are going with "The Taste of Memphis" meal which includes (if you are vegan do not read any further)
- baked beans
- cole slaw
- creamed corn
- baked rolls w/honey butter (so yummy)
- St. Louis style ribs
- shredded pork
- sliced beef brisket
- barbecue chicken
- hot links
We will also be giving our gifts to our bridal party at our dinner. Aside from the bridesmaids and groomsmen, the other adults (sponsors) will receive a barbecue basket that will include:
- a bottle of wine with Las Vegas logo (for a souvenir of Sin City)
- a bag of apple blossom tea (Memphis BBQ signature)
- Memphis BBQ sauce
- a personalized apron (I *may* try to DIY this to save money)
I also want to get personalized flags for favors from Oriental Trading but Ray says it's corny so we'll see.
I am also going to surprise Ray with his 49ers grooms cake on this night! OMG tons of yummy food, I will probably take some ex-lax at night so I'm not all rounded the next day on the wedding!
I'm actually super excited for this night, it's one of the events I'm looking forward to the most!
