    I was considering a margarita machine, but my mom gave me the idea to get a big drink despenser & make margaritas on the rocks. it would be a lot cheaper. You can also get a margarita machine at sam's for $180.

    We hired 2 people to set up a taco stand and cook tacos to order for guests. That was a fun touch and very Mexican.
    Jamy is a rockstar because the Mexican candy is also a great idea - there are lots of yummy things you could put out. and As far as the taco stand, this is the #1 recommendation I have - my FI's parents do this when they host garden parties and its amazing and so fun. Especially if you can get someone to do tacos al pastor...yum!

      Ok here comes the dumb question- did you hire someone that already operates a taco stand on the street?
      Happily married since 2008
