Nobody ”˜Scept You: The Rehearsal Dinner

I never got around to blogging about out rehearsal dinner, but we decided to have a medium sized rehearsal that included our bridal party, their dates, our immediate families, grandparents and any aunts and uncles that had made the trip to be there for our wedding day. In the end we had about 25 people at our dinner. We chose to hold our rehearsal dinner at our favorite Japanese Steak House, Sakura. Sakura is technically a hibachi style restaurant, but they also have a nice event room in the back of the restaurant that was the perfect size for our dinner.

We pre-chose three options for our guest to choose from and Mr. Scepter’s mom made cute menus to display the choices:

Once everyone had made their dinner selections, the photos commenced!

Mr. Scepter’s Family

Myself, MOH/Lil Sis Dolphin, and Brother Scepter (aka our minister)

MOH Dancer and me

Brother Scepter entertainer our flower girl, Tiny Dancer

All of the bridesmaids!

MOH Fashionista and I celebrated with a Lemon Drop

My Parents and Siblings

Mr. Scepter and His Groomsmen

Myself and the Best Man. And yes, he is wearing a Best Man button. We bought it for him as part of a long running joke and he loved it so much he wore it for all of our wedding events, except for our ceremony and formal pictures.

Me and Mr. Scepter

Our food was so delicious I forgot to get any pictures before I devoured it (you can sort of see it in the picture above), but if you ever happen to be in the Amarillo area I highly recommend Sakura. What kind of food did you have at your rehearsal dinner?

Next up: We gift the bridal party.

The recaps began.

We received an awesome gift.

The girls got pampered.
