@jenilynevette:  when we first met, we were working together and used to email jokes to each other. One day, we spent the entire day emailing “walked into a bar” jokes back and forth. It was silly, but loved it. So, I’m collecting a bunch of those jokes, printing and rolling them into little individual scrolls on tables for guests to read.

@jenilynevette:  I think mine will be different because its in Vegas and will be intimate seated dinner for 20-30 of our closest friends and family. I foresee it being a nice family vacation ( of sorts) with our family getting to know each other over a few days not just one night. Can’t wait!!!

@jenilynevette:  We have a lot of personal touches we are thinking of including. 
My two favorite ideas so far are:

Writing our first dance song together (we are both musicians/song writers)

Having legos as part of our center pieces and other fun table games

@jenilynevette: Our biggest unique touches soo far are:

We are having an old fashioned popcorn stand as our late night treats to give out! Which I have never seen! but we are super excited about it! We also maybe adding big soft preztles with a variety of toppings and dips into the late night option!

we are not doing typical October colors and decorations! We will have no leaves in our decor….

our reception is in an old time opera house vs the traditional (in our area atleast) hotel ballroom/church gym….

other then that we are just keeping things classy and simple!

@jenilynevette:  yeah I was glad we found it….their only restrictions were dont ruin anything and no chocolate fountain…..(which i understood after she showed me the pics they keep on hand for why!! ugh they had to replace carpet (luckily bride and groom were rich!))….and the only other restriction is that because there are very expensive things in there that our reception coordinator is an Opera House staff member (she will cut our cake and everything and help get vendors in and out! so sweet!) and that since we elected to have alcohol at our reception that we have an opera house security gaurd on site who will also help make sure there are no drunken antics or people getting crazy breaking things…..and help people in and out of the building esp handy for our elders in our family!!

the only decor restrictions i have is only soy candles and no holes in the walls!
