Now, onto the actual rehearsal dinner!
Our Rehearsal Dinner was held at Rollin' Greens Bar and Tavern, which is right down the street from us. We had a buffet dinner of penne al la vodka, sausage and peppers, eggplant rollatini, and chicken francaise. The whole night was pretty much mingling, drinking, and eating as I bounced between friends, family, and chris' family. All the while still running through lists in my head and really just wanting to sleep...I was overwhelmed to say the least.

For dessert, Chris's mom got us a napoleon cake which was a total hit! If you've never had a napoleon, try and order one the next time you're at an Italian bakery. It will change your life!
We gave out our gifts, danced to the macarena, did a kickline, and I was home and in bed by 2:00....while I think half of our bridal party still remained at the bar drinking until much later!
The last picture of us before we become husband and wife!
