      Then don't! Just pick a time & place...and rock on. Food, drinks, friends & fam - that's all you need...I'm just sure of it!

        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.

        hey random thought-I'm lutheran too!!!
        I think Paul would love for you to show those pics to everyone-no honestly Ann I think you should just plan on having a nice simple night.

So we are going to start at 6:30pm I believe.
        make sure to tell mariana you want people to be the dealers that know what they are doing...and get some prizes, like a big bottle of tequila or something...

          We are splitting up after the meal. The men will have a poker tourney and the women will go sing karaoke. This will serve as our bachelor/ette parties. However, we are having our welcome dinner Sat, and our wedding's not til Mon so we have all Sunday to recover.

          It's a nice thought to want to do something special, but you don't want to overshadow the big day. I would keep it really simple.
