    ann id just keep it simple. i dont think you really NEED to have anything special. being there is already special & different for most people.

    one wedding i shot had a donkey at the reception/rehearsal dinner but honestly i felt sorry for the donkey. it was hot. and the donkey didnt smell so great. and the girls would come pet the donkey and then go "ooow it stinks!" well yeah its a donkey - haha!

      lol - i hadn't thought of having a donkey. i'd probably feel so bad for it as well! and i can see Paul's friends just trying to get the donkey drunk.

      done. no donkey.

      i am really leaning towards simple as well - i just don't want boring. but you're right - we're in Mexico on vacation. how can it be boring?!

        Ann- It definitely won't be boring!! everyone is going to be so excited to be all together and to start celebrating you! i'm sure after dinner, the people that want to stay out can just go to another bar at the hotel for a few more drinks. that's what I'm thinking for ours...

        i don't think you need to plan anything special except for the dinner. one little thing we are doing it getting a sound system with microphone for people to give speeches if they want. i have a big group and for most rehearsal dinners that i have been to, a lot of people end up speaking. for my already married sisters & brothers, we did something similar and it was really nice (since the only speech we are having for the wedding reception is best man / maid of honor). not sure how big your wedding is, you might not need the microphone.

          ok well i went the complete opposite direction on this. For our rehearsal/welcome dinner we are doing a mexican buffet dinner on the beach. Then we are also having a casino night so everyone will get to meet each other. (and tammy host said it was so much fun) Between dinner and Casino night we are having the fire dancers for 10 mins. So we are going to start at 6:30pm I believe.

                    lmao - right - like the beach wedding to an older, scottish, divorced, lutheren girl from MN hasn't already pushed Paul's conservative Irish Catholic parents close enough to the edge! heck - i may as well push them all the way!

                    i think we're doing the mexican theme dinner as well. maybe i will ask paul what he thinks about a mariachi band for the WD. not sure i'll need it though - but it might be fun. we're having a bonfire and fire dancers on the wedding night - so those are out.

                      Ann - you are so f-ing funny!!

                      Be careful that you don't OD on special stuff for the welcome dinner...you don't want to overshadow your wedding & reception!!!
