Well our church isn't a practicing church so you can have any kind of gathering there which made us think of the huge room below that could seat over 100 people and allow for some imagination to dress it up. Since we also are having a decent amount of out of town guests we reconsidered and realized that we could have our pig pickin' there! I'm so excited that things worked out and that we don't have to leave the premises and that it can be more low key and relaxed.
These invitations make me think of a true southern pig pickin':
So FUN! And what's great is that a typical BBQ theme incorporates the red and white theme which we want to encompass our rehearsal in anyway because we want to pay homage to our Alma Mater, NC State! Since it's the night before a home game it's perfect, and we can tie in our grooms cake that we discussed here.
I'm excited to see what happens! I don't have any say in it, which is a good thing since my mind can run all the time thinking of fun ideas! But I'll leave you with a few links to some FANTASTIC inspiration! YEEHAW!

All this read and white talk makes me excited for football, and because our mascots are totally in love too. Go pack!
