As many of you already know, my partner Christine and I have announced our engagement! Yes, after nearly four and a half decades of singlehood, I’m finally crossing over into the land of maturity and getting hitched. Hooray! Now comes the fun part: planning the nuptials. Oh, boy… it’s quite the project. Naturally there are lots of things to sort out, and decisions to make. Chief among these are the food, and the music. For the former, we’re open to lots of possibilities though there are some specific dishes we’d like to include. For the latter, we’re committed to having a live band… and some horns would be nice too! Since nothing is more reassuring than a recommendation that comes from personal experience, I’m throwing the question out to everyone: can you recommend a good source for the catering… or a great band to provide the tunes? And if you have any other suggestions, tips or advice on putting on a fun and whimsical yet down-to-earth ceremony and celebration, while not breaking the bank, they would be extremely welcome. Looking forward to your feedback – email me at email@example.com. Thanks!
