For our tables I chose a chocolate brown satin pintuck linen with gold chiavari chairs and a natural branch centerpiece. The chargers were gold and silver and the placecards I made were at every seat with pashminas on every female guests chair.

We sent these out to all our guests and our vendors, they were made on I had a group photo site through Shutterfly and made cards at the wedding instructing guests to upload pics there. Once I got my pro pics on CD I uploaded them there as well. The cards listed the website so people could see the pro and non-pro pics!

Since the timing worked out, I also sent out photo Christmas cards from Shutterfly to all our extended family and friends that couldn't make it to the wedding - I put wedding pics on it and the photo website with password.

We held the rehearsal dinner for every guest invited since it was a small destination wedding in Asheville, NC. The place we chose was called "The Fiddlin' Pig" and it was so much fun! We had family style dinner and they have a bluegrass band that plays every night on stage. I thought a version of BBQ was appropriate for the rehearsal since NC is kinda know for their BBQ!

Here's some pics:
