Me too! I'm hoping that 20 of them decline!

I'm a 2012 bride so I'd love some recent BEOs too! This is such a fantastic resource. Thanks to all who have posted!

I am sending my pre-rsvp's out this week. Hoping there are declines too, but I don't think I am going to be so lucky!

I remember how helpful it was to see BEO's while I was planning and was ready to post mine, but I can't copy/paste it since it's a PDF. I have off tomorrow so I promise I'll handtype it for you ladies. I have an estimate of 75 guests so I hope it will help!

Depending on what version of Adobe you are using, you can highlight and select text, the command is in the top left corner of the screen. I would hate for you to type it out if you didn't have to!!!!!!

Hey girls! Yeah I went through my list last night and checked people I think may go, prob wont go, and def will go. Highest could be around 100, lowest could be around 65...thats a huge jump!! We sent pre rsvps out but i havent gotten very many back which is kind of a pain/headache! Im trying to decide if I can squeeze more activities in but its all dependent on how many guests..arrgh!

I was also thinking it would be a lot of work to retype. Do you happen to have OneNote (part of the Microsoft Office Suite) or there are other programs out there called Snip It or something similar, which lets you crop an image from what is up on your screen and save it as a picture, which you could then post.

Another easy way to do this, if you don't have those programs, you just hit the "print scrn" button on your keyboard (usually in the upper row next to the function keys), you won't see anything happen on the screen after you hit the button, but it is saving in the background. Then just open your paint program (it is just a generic image program, go to start, all programs, accessories, paint). Then once the screen opens hit control + V to paste the screen shot. You can then save it as an image and upload it.

Mahi-Mahi with lemocello sauce

My daughter is getting married at WDW and looking at having Mahi-Mahi with lemocello sauce on the menu. We love Mahi-Mahi, but not familiar with lemocello sauce. Can any one provide some taste comments for me - appreciate it. Loving the flavor of the fish I would not like a sauce to over power it.

Here's our final estimate. We're having 71 guests, 4 children and one child under the age of 3 (doesn't count towards anything)

We're having our "Rehearsal Dinner" at a Braves Spring Training game at the Wide World of Sports , our ceremony at the Yacht Club Gazebo and our reception at ADH.

Let me know if you have any questions!
