A Simple & Timeless Jekyll Island Club Rehearsal Dinner

When working with Julia and Chase on their Jekyll Island Club tented wedding design, they also asked us to be a part of their Jekyll Island Club rehearsal dinner, and we could not resist! As we went with a design with pops of blue for their wedding day, we wanted to go with a more simple and clean design for their rehearsal dinner. So, we chose a timeless white palette with subtle green accents from the blooms.

Jekyll Island Club Rehearsal Dinner

On arrival day to Jekyll Island, guests were invited to a fun and casual afternoon playing croquet. After the rehearsal, the couple and their guests then headed to Cherokee Cottage at Jekyll Island Club for a beautiful rehearsal dinner on the lawn. 

Our team designed simple arrangements of single-bloom groupings, coincidently foreshadowing what would come the next day at the wedding. On the guest’s tables, bundles of white hydrangeas were incorporated into the centerpieces. I loved how they looked like clouds of vanilla ice cream scoops so delicately placed. The head table was simply styled with a plethora of white pillar candles and vining greenery.

As the sunset, the bistro lights above the lawn illuminated the rehearsal dinner while the white pillar candles twinkled below. It was the perfect start to this wedding weekend!

It was so fun to be on-site for Julia and Chase’s wedding a day early and help with their Jekyll Island Club rehearsal dinner. We love a good multi-day destination wedding where guests come from all over to enjoy multiple events! Be sure to check out the highlights from Julia and Chase’s wedding day here; we know you will love their blue and white wedding design as much as we did!
