Total Re-Collie: We Party

Just to close the loop on this one (since I wrote a WWBD post on the topic) at the reception I decided to do BOTH options:  some quick games, plus an iPhone playlist.

I really wanted to do Mrs. Seabreeze’s “kissing game”, but literally everyone I asked in advance thought the game would flop.  So I decided to scrap it at the last minute.  I did, however, want to keep the shoe game.  I researched fun questions to ask and put a list together, emailed instructions to my brother, and added it into the timeline.  But, the game never happened.  I didn’t even realize we’d forgotten to do it until days later.  The reception was so short that there probably wasn’t enough time for it.

Back to our story…

Immediately after our first dance, the music got cranked up, and everyone — okay, the “kids”– started dancing.

The dance floor looks a little empty though, doesn’t it?  Guess what helps?  Props (and, who are we kidding… all-inclusive booze).

We went from this (people sitting around, and acting guilty)…

That flamingo totally had too much to drink… later in the night he got involved in a dance off:

Far too quickly, it was 10 pm and the restaurant turned into a pumpkin.

We lost Phil at this point.  He packed up all his equipment and headed home.  Everyone helped us haul our wedding stuff back to our room.  As previously mentioned, the kids met up at the disco at 11, but we left after an empty dance floor and bad music greeted us.  We finished the night at the Italian restaurant with pizza and red wine.

Best Day Ever.

But don’t worry, I’ve still got more posts to share with you guys.  Up next, all the details.
