OMG HAHAHA!! I was BORN in Orange, and my mother moved back here after my parents divorced when I was little!! My dad was a marine and stationed there.

The reception is at No. 9 Park and we are debating on the ceremony site. Probably Arboretum or Rose Garden on Fens. 

I would just offer siggy drinks if you went that route. If people want anything else, they can pay for it.

bonbonsparklesMD:  Bars that handle weddings know to offer limited drink menus in a tasteful way to guest.

MY dad was a Gunnery Sargeant (gunny) in Vietnam! He flew with airforce all the time, as he manned machine guns and offered air support. This is a coincidence, indeed!

We aren’t bothering with engagement photos. I thought about it, but the wedding is small, and there are enough pics of us (grant it, they are all in bars or with the dog) with me flashing my ring.

I bought Apothic wine, a white and a red, and they were about $7 a bottle. Everyone I know loves that wine

Barefoot is cheap but decent.  Usually undef $7 per bottle.  I like their Pinot Noir and Savignon Blanc.  Not a fan of Chardonnay in general but friends of mine like the one made by Barefoot.

bonbonsparklesMD:  My daughter’s venue says it’s 5 glasses per bottle, for their champagne, but will charge per person, since not everyone drinks it. It does seem steep to pay $10 corkage per bottle, if the bottle of wine cost under $10 each. Are you putting them on each table, so each table gets 2 bottles, and that’s it? I remember going to a wedding where there were 3 bottles per table; red, white, and sparkling cider. I don’t think a drop was drunk from any of them, but someone from our table did go around to see if another table wanted it.
