Saturday began with Mom, Lisa and I hitting the road to Fort Myers and help from Lynne. The primary goal of the day was a rehearsal dinner location. We scouted several places and ended up with one that should accommodate. Along the way we met with our photographer for the first time and went to see the reception site all done up for another wedding. Mom got her first look at the site all together. After all that was through we did some hotel wheeling and dealing (more info soon).
Today, Lisa and Mom addressed all the invitations while I wrangled with address lists and web sites.

Took care of hair and makeup (for Lisa, not me), our cake (I love cake) and met with Father Bob. I learned that you have to bring your own cake cutting device to a wedding - since obviously they don't have that kind of thing in a banquet hall.
Lisa and I walked through 10 hotel rooms today but since every hotel sales person in town takes weekends off, we couldn't arrange a deal yet (we have choice 1, 2 and 3)
I think we're taking tomorrow off

Tonight was the tasting at the country club hosting our reception. We loved it! The traditional entrees were well done and there is a subtle creativity to the side dishes. I know that most wedding meals tend to blur together, and I'm sure this will not be an enormous exception for most folks, but I'm sure you'll enjoy it in the moment.
Early rising tomorrow for a slew of appointments and tasks.
