He FINALLY did something!

32 days till the wedding and Fi finally got his arse in gear. We went last night to buy our booze. One of the great savings we receive with booking at the Z Mansion, is we can bring in our own booze. We have hired a licensed and bonded bartender and the Z has liquor insurance so we are covered there, we just need to supply it.

Honestly, as much as we love wine, I was happy going to Trader Joe's and getting $2 Chuck, aka Charles Shaw. But Fi had a plan. For the last few weeks he has been researching wines and last night we went to BevMo with a list of whites and a list of reds, all rated high, but all within the $5-$12/bottle range. We hunted for the specific years and we walked away with 28 bottles of wine for $250! So each table will have a bottle of red (either Merlot, Syrah, or Cab Sav) and a bottle of white (Chardonnay only). We will be going back to buy specific bottles for the bar and the rest of the liquor. Our bartender provides mixers and glassware for the night.

I am really happy that Fi took on this project and ran with it! One thing less on my list!

Those crafty fiances can always surprise you when you least expect it.

Just when I thought our wine (and beer) hunt was over - big setback last night. Will blog about it later - but I'm glad you are over this hump!!!
