I think I am going to "fancy it up" for the cocktail recpetion so I can have the best of both worlds.
I am so glad that they are letting me pull canapes from each of the different menus and create my own.
I also wanted to have the donkey but then my co-worker started getting into the logistics of that. (I won't go into the points he brought up bc I don't want to deter you) but either way I am anxious to hear how that goes for you.
OMG, can you believe you are just over 2 weeks out? After 2 years of planning muct feel like a relief!
As for the Donkey Cocktail hour, it's funny because FI and I were put off by the Donkey at first and asked our WC to not have the donkey there because we thought it was tacky. She replied mentioning the donkey by his name saying he wouldn't be there and I don't know why but I got teary-eyed and told FI that he has a name and we were taking away his job! We decided it's 30 minutes with him on the beach during cocktail hour, we don't have any snooty guests and I know everyone would really get a kick out of him so we let it go.
Just so you know, everyone has their own opinions about how your wedding should or shouldn't be and I had to learn the hard way not to listen to anyone but what FI & I decided, you'll never please everyone
