Rehearsal Dinner Welcome Cruise

Posted on September 22, 2018

Get inspired for your next event with this unique, custom set-up for a welcome rehearsal dinner cruise. Guests were greeted at the dock by a weathered, wood hinged sandwich board setting the tone for the fun, casual evening ahead.
 
Onboard, the exterior deck was outfitted with cabaret tables decorated by a gold vessel filled with a bouquet of rich green lemon leaf foliage and lit by blue electric votives. Long banana leaf ottomans paired with white ultra suede small seat ottomans lined the railing, and a small lounge grouping of wicker chairs and gold rope accent tables in the stern completed the chic upper deck set-up. Boarding guests were greeted to the upper deck with an outdoor bar and passed gourmet bites from Summer House Santa Monica.
 
The party continued in the lower level salon with a second full-service bar and taco station. A beautifully presented cigar bar completed the evening, with dedicated space to enjoy in the vessel's open-air bow.
