Thanks for your input on The Great Menu Debate, y’all. After much deliberation and a lengthy phone call with our catering manager, I think we’ve got it figured out. Found a nice balance between “light cocktail-style meal” and “MEAL meal”. Not everybody can get by eating like a bird at dinner and then shoveling 6 pieces of cake down their throat like I can, I guess…
To avoid jinxing myself again, I’m not going to post the “FINAL” menu. I’ll just let you know that MEAT has been added. Nobody needs to smuggle any jerkey in their suit pocket… (L, make sure to pass that along)

I haven’t been talking about the wedding much, but this whole menu deal has sent me into a tailspin so I thought I’d give y’all a quick overview on the going ons re: the Soon-To-Be’s Big Day :
Bach-ette : Vegas, Baby :) Suggestions for hotels/shows/must-do’s would be greatly appreciated!
Dress : Has been hanging in our guest room closet since the purchase waiting for my momma to make her way to Cali (2 weeks!) so she can see it IRL (in real life). Still brainstorming ideas for alterations/additions to make the off-the-rack’er more unique and “me” (the flames have been eliminated as an option, sorry)
Menu : See above and here
Entertainment : B & I really kind of hate wedding music, and I really didn’t want any Grandma’s trying to boogie to the latest Usher club song. We’re having a band. They’re awesome, in a very you-should-be-playing-at-a-dive-bar-not-a-wedding kind of way. Have you ever seen a long-haired, grungey guitar player singing “Hit Me Baby One More Time”?
Honeymoon : I’ve got Fodor’s 2011 Guide to Costa Rica in my purse. Volcanoes, paddle boarding, horse back riding, ATV adventures, and zip lining through the rainforest? Nothing’s in the books yet – Who wants to recommend a good Travel Agency?
There’s been lots of brainstorming, but not too much actual doing. Once the holidays are over it’s gung-ho on invitations, decor, mens’ wear, and detailing the dress. (Don’t hold me to that)
One item that will 100% for certain be happening – a Trash The Dress session. Hear that Courtney? You, me, and the Pacific Ocean have a date next July. :)

Have any of you done a Trash The Dress Session? I’ve seen some really incredible shots in the past, and am totally in love with the idea. What would I do with that dress anyways???
