Put your bib on. It's lobster rehearsal dinner time and only on Martha's Vineyard could they get it so, so right.

The Bascom Rehearsal Dinner by Olivia Griffin Photography + Walton Event Design

Is it just me or do you want to steal every single charming detail of this Highlands rehearsal dinner for your very own?  Not just me?  Good.  Because I do believe it doesn't get any sweeter than a fishing-themed rehearsal dinner (the bride's favorite hobby), complete with gorgeous sunflower centerpieces, a cute-as-can-be cake (a fish, of course) and "live bait" desserts (gummy worms included).  All of that lovely AND stone place cards and I have a really big crush that won't be going...

Everything is bigger in Texas for sure and this gorgeous engagement party by Anahi Navarro Photography is as big as it is beautiful.

The Lone Star state doesn't mess around on anything, including engagement parties apparently! Oh Texas, you get me every time.

Rustic Colorado Rehearsal Dinner from Alexan Events

A good rehearsal dinner can so often be like the more relaxed sister of the wedding. Just as fun, just as beautiful, but a little more inclined to let her hair down. This is why we love a fab rehearsal dinner just as much as a gorgeous wedding. Just looking through Hannah Photography's images of this Colorado rehearsal dinner, gives us such a sense of ease. You can almost feel the wind blowing off the mountain and the gravel under your...

San Diego Rehearsal Dinner by Alchemy Fine Events & Invitations

Something I bet you guys didn't know. For my own wedding, I asked our florist to cover anything and everything in glitter. Clear, delicate glitter that would catch the light of the chandeliers perfectly. And she did! She actually rolled our vases in glitter so that the sparkle would light up the whole room. And it was magical. I get that it sounds completely tacky, but you'd have to see it to really believe how pretty it was. Well, this next soiree satisfies all of my girly, glittery, full of...

Aspen After Party by Aaron Delesie + Lisa Vorce + Mindy Rice

This is the party that can't stop, won't stop!  After the sweet and serene wedding, guests ventured down the rabbit hole into something completely different! A psychedelic, Willa Wonka-meets-Alice in Wonderland after party where they got their sugar rush and their dance party on!  Candy around every corner, vibrant lounge areas and, my favorite little touch, sparkly Toms for the guests to don before dancing, turned this already magical weekend into an out-of-this-world extravaganza! ...

Engagement Party for Laura Hooper

I'm a self professed Laura Hooper stalker. I love, love, love her calligraphy work and from the looks of it, everyone else does too. I bet that if we crawled all of the past events we've featured on SMP, Laura's name would come up the most because, well...she's just that good. So when I heard that she is getting hitched in a few months, I just about burst with wedding joy. And if her engagement party, designed by the fabulous...
