5 REASONS TO HOST A DAY OF WEDDING REHEARSAL

 

Are you interested in stress relief? Us too. By the way, there is no rule that says you MUST have a wedding rehearsal. With just about 1,000 weddings hosted at Kendall Point, we know how to eliminate unneeded stress. Hosting a rehearsal the morning of your wedding is one of the most stress-relieving things you can do. Promise. I am sure most of you have been in a wedding before, whether it be a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, at some point, the bride requested you be in town or available the day before the wedding, or days before the wedding, for a rehearsal. Admit it, you had a little eye roll when you found out you had to be at a rehearsal at 3pm on a Thursday or Friday before a wedding. You had to take off work early, or the entire day, you had an extra hotel night to pay for, and you likely had to purchase a new wardrobe for the rehearsal. Just to follow the person in front of you and stand in a line. Ya, we get it. There are numerous benefits of hosting a day-of rehearsal, but we narrowed it down for you to our 5 favorite reasons to have a WEDDING DAY REHEARSAL.

  1. Having a day of rehearsal allows you to plan your rehearsal dinner anywhere, anytime. You don’t have to search for a nearby restaurant and worry about timing of the dinner and traffic getting to and from the venue to the restaurant. Gather with your bridal party and enjoy the stress-free evening at your favorite hangout spot, or favorite restaurant, and relax. You can even do the rehearsal portion at the dinner location. Pro Tip, the Rehearsal can be done anywhere- at any time other than the venue. BONUS: If you have a wedding planner/day of planner or coordinator, guess what? They are going handle all the details the day of. They will be there to direct traffic and tell the wedding party exactly what to do and where to stand that day. Why do it twice?

  2. Out of town guests/travelers? Awesome! Save them an extra day and let them get settled in before the celebrations commence! Day of wedding rehearsals give your out-of-towners a little wiggle room in case of travel delays, traffic, and or unexpected flight changes.

  3. 10am-Midnight, that is how long you have Kendall Point. That’s 14 hours friends! Ample time to run a day of rehearsal in the morning, or even afternoon of the wedding depending on your timeline. How many times have you been at a rehearsal the day before the wedding and you are waiting on the last bridesmaid or groomsmen to arrive? Ugh! Without fail, someone is always late and will put you way behind schedule for getting the rehearsal dinner started. When you host the rehearsal on the day of the wedding, it’s real. Real, real. The wedding party will switch into wedding mode and be more focused and ready. And guess what, it will be fresh on their mind too, because the wedding is the same day. You can even sweet talk the wedding party and promise them coffee and tacos the morning of the rehearsal. Once the rehearsal is over, the girls head straight to the brides room and begin their hair and make-up. Boom, everyone already there, and ready to jump right into the wedding day preps. The guys can hang out at the venue, but we mostly see them all jump in a car and head to SA (10 minutes away) and hit Top Golf, or grab a quick lunch, maybe even bowling. Ohhh…you don’t want to see the Groom on the day of the wedding? Good. (We love that tradition!). We typically see the bride stashed in the bridal suite during the rehearsal. The bride already knows what to do! Am I right?! The rehearsal can just be for the bridal party and the groom! Let’s face it, you have had this planned out for some time now, and you already know exactly what to do when it’s go time. Don’t forget about that planner you hired! The planner will follow your wishes/guidelines for the rehearsal, so everything will be just as it should be. Trust the process, trust the professionals, we got this!

  4. Are the Guys coming in later? Cool, don’t panic. When the girls arrive at KP to start hair and make-up at 10am, do a quick run through with just the bridesmaids, 15-20 minutes tops. Furthermore, when the guys arrive later in the day, the wedding planner can do a run through with them too. As a result, both parties have practiced their steps, and know exactly what to do, and it is fresh on their minds! Feeling better about the day of rehearsal yet?


  5. It’s just a quick walk-through (everyone knows how to walk, correct?). Don’t over-rate the rehearsal. The procession down the aisle and standing at the alter are self-explanatory. Don’t over think it. And definitely don’t let other people make you crazy about these things. Have a dinner if you want, don’t if you don’t. Absolutely not necessary. The wedding planner will help everyone get down the aisle, and the officiant will take it from there and tell you exactly what to do.

Engagement Season…

 


{Engagement Season: Yup, it’s a thing y’all.}


 

What in the world is going on!? Here you are, engaged AF, and you have your heart set on a Saturday in October…. but you call the venue of your dreams and they are already booked. Ughhhh. How? What? Why? You don’t know until you know, as they say! Don’t worry girl, we got you! “Engagement season” is a real thing. Here is what you need to know:


♥  MOST POPULAR DAYS TO GET ENGAGED  ♥


Christmas Eve, Eve

Christmas Eve

Christmas Day

New Year’s Eve (that’s me!)

New Year’s Day

Valentine’s Day


Sounds cliché, but it’s totally not. Getting engaged during the holidays is the most fun, apparently everyone else thinks so too! What does that mean? This means dates are flying off the shelves and it’s a mad dash to the finish line for the most popular dates (Saturdays!).  Do not panic. Read that again, do not panic!

  • DON’T: Lock yourself into ONE wedding date before you tour venues. This will limit your options greatly.                                                                                                  
  • DO: Choose a range of dates. Don’t fall in love with a date, fall in love with the venue.
  • DON’T: Ignore the proposal trends above. It affects venue availability                     
  • DO: Go ahead, we dare you, book your venue before you get that ring. You’d be surprised how often we see this happen. All. The. Time. Brides put down a deposit to hold a date because they know the proposal is imminent. Weird at first, maybe, but guess what, you got the date you wanted, the venue you wanted, and you are one step ahead of the rest. WINNING.
  • DON’T: Choose a date because of what the weather “might” do. It’s Texas, Texas has no pattern. Texas does what Texas wants.                                                      
  • DO: Choose a date because it works with your schedule, you like that time of the year, and you can’t control the weather. We can’t guarantee the weather will be “perfect” (what does perfect even mean?!) but, we can guarantee it doesn’t matter, because it is what it is, and we make the best of it.  Have you seen our indoor wedding options? Swoon.
  • DON’T: Get stuck on a Saturday! Y’all, seriously, there are 6 other days in the week other than a Saturday.                                                                                           
  • DO: Open your mind. If you have found the one venue that checks all the boxes and it’s a must have, choose a different date other than Saturday if it’s not available. HELLO! Fridays and Sundays often offer a much lower rate. Kendall Point is $2000 less on a Friday/Sunday. Yes, we said $2000 dollars. I can find somewhere else to spend 2K, can you?! If you decide on a weekday, girl, we have a deal for you! Weekday pricing is even better.

Somewhere, over the Rainbow!

Ashley + Andy’s Hill Country Dream Wedding | The Kendall Plantation

 

Ashley & Andy chose The Kendall Plantation, in Boerne Texas to be married at and begin their forever. This Hill Country Venue hosts some of the most refined, elegant, and romantic weddings around! Their big day had finally arrived, and with it came a wild September morning storm, that turned around into the perfects sunny day! Wedding magic is real y’all, and this fun loving couple truly deserved all the rainbows and sunshine they got! When I arrived Blushd was just finishing up Ashley’s hair & makeup, and she looked stunning!

 
 

Ashley is the girl that everyone loves, she is SO kind and fun spirited, it was a joy to photograph her wedding and felt like a day among friends!

 
 

Can we talk about this FLORAL?! Mandy with Blume Haus truly outdid herself. From the delicate pinks, corals and whites to the grand aisle design, we were in love.

 
 

Andy and his guys were equally awesome! College Baseball players supporting one another through every step of the way!

 
 

AND. THAT. RING! Andy, you did good!

 
 
 

As soon as the beautiful bride was ready for her wedding day, it was time for a heart touching first look with all her favorite girls (and her two brides men!)

 
 

Needless to say, they had a hard time holding their tears back!

 
 

The incredible four tier cake by Cakes & More Bake Shop was up, every little detail was perfect, and the day ready to shine!

 
 

Melissa with All In The Details, one of my favorite wedding planners ever, rushed out to the balcony excitedly letting us know “Its time! We have a 20 minute break in the forecast!” and thank goodness for her, because their wedding was blessed with the most perfect rainbow! No photoshop here folks! Just a little creative exposure.

 
 

Even though the forecast called for thunder and rain, it all seemed to move aside for Ashley & Andy’s special day.

 
 

The sun seemed to get brighter and brighter, setting beautifully over Ashley and Andy’s portrait time and lending the perfect light for us to hang out with these happy little Beer Burros from Texas Hill Country Events

 
 

Their rainbow even came back and dropped down for us to grab a portrait with it! My photographer heart was over the moon! My good friend Mark Thomas doing the videography with Mark Thomas Pro Photo was equally impressed!

 
 
 
 
 

I mean could this hill country venue get any more romantic? We thought not, but in a rare September bloom, The Kendall Plantation had wildly gorgeous purple flowers where we normally see their classic red roses, and it was EVERYTHING!

 
 
 
 
 
 

And just like that, it was party time! We spent the evening with one of the best DJ’s around (like ever) Phillip with 5150 Productions, and it was as they say “LIT!”.

 
 
 
 
 

All the way to the end, this wedding was PURE MAGIC! Their grand sparkler exit was AWESOME!

 

CONGRATULATIONS ASHLEY + ANDY!

And thank you to all of the amazing vendors who ran the show and made this all possible!!
