    Must Have:
    My FI
    Family/My BMs
    Excellent dress & hair
    Lots of food and drink
    A relaxed fun atmosphere, annoying nitpicky people can stay home!

    Don't Care:
    Cake
    Decorations
    Speeches
    Any religious stuff

      I've never heard of this dollar dance business before. And what's a receiving line?

        I think a receiving line is where you stand to say hi and thanks for coming to the guests

                Stag and Doe is a fun party held in honor of the bride and groom before you get married. Kind of like a bachelor and bachelorette party combined. Its suppose to help raise money for the wedding. So people play games for money and gamble in order to help out the couple. No gifts at these just cash, alcohol, and lots of fun.

                Must Haves....
                Family & friends
                My dad walking me down the isle
                I want to look amazing! (dress, hair, make-up)
                good food and endless supply of alcohol (to endure the family)
                Music

                Don't Care For
                garter
                speeches
                receiving line ( anything too stiff)

                I want everyone to be relaxed and have fun!

                      The perfect dress
                      lots of alcohol
