we are inviting all OOT guests also…

we’re having a very casual luncheon before the rehearsal…

 

<font face=”Georgia” size=”3″>As some of you are flying in from out of town (and out of country), this is your "official" notice of the pre-rehearsal lunch as a meet-n-greet with other members of the bridal party…  this may also be the first time our families meet each other, so it should be a fun gathering of our nearest and dearest.

Rather than having a semi-formal dinner after the rehearsal, we decided to have very casual lunch first to give all of you a chance to meet and mingle before the practice run of walking the aisle… [since it is kinda wierd walking arm-in-arm with a stranger 😉 ].

Immediately after lunch, we will head over to the church and try not to trip as we all walk up the aisle.  The trick will be to stay awake after feasting on BBQ – rehearsal should not last longer than 60-80 minutes – i’m guessing it depends on how well we all listen and follow the wedding coordinator’s directions – stay awake and alert people!! haha!

If none of us has fallen into a food coma, we want to take everyone out for a drink (or several – you know to take "the edge" off) after the rehearsal.  I guess we can play that part by ear.  I’m not tryin to look tore up on my own wedding day 😉

If you cannot make it to lunch due to school, work, gotta wash your car, whatever reason, please attend the rehearsal. 

Ok – you know the drill – any questions, email or call either one of us!

Feel free to invite your spouse / child(ren)!
Just let either of us know 😉

Also – while this is BBQ spot – if you are vegan, vegetarian , glutien allergic, diabetic or have a special dietary request, please let us know so we can find an alternative for you.</font>

we actually got alot of funny responses back, like – "i’m lactose intolerant – what kind of stuff does the restaurant have for me?"

the resposnes were positive and i think it made people feel at ease that we did it in such a casual manner – like hello – we already have to "behave" for the wedding and reception – why not kick up our heels for the rehearsal, kwim???
