The Day Of:

What it is:
For those of you used to traditional weddings, it is probably best to characterize this as a reception, although it will be more than that. We will have a brief ceremonial-esque moment at the beginning before proceeding on to the music, food, dancing and conversation. For us, this seemed the best way to convey what we want to convey.

The Menu:
We’ll have something for meat eaters, seafood eaters, and vegetarians—a serve yourself kind of thing featuring Mexican food. There will probably be punch and there will definitely be margaritas.

Your Clothing:
Summery things. If you're feeling up to it, you might want to wear something circa 1966, the (in some opinions) very best year. That way you'll also fit in beautifully with the décor. Otherwise, think gauzy/cool/comfortable/vaguely dressy. In other words, don't bother with a tie, let alone a suit (unless you are most comfortable in one). Girls: avoid high heels unless, for some odd reason, you really like them. Be comfortable so you can dance. No denim please.

Music will be the primary focus of the day. If you have a song you’d like to request (and please, try to keep it to just a couple and in one e-mail only) send an e-mail to


As you may know, the Paws and Taws features a little stage, where various bands and electronic devices will be perfoming. If any of you would like to do a mini version of, say, The Sound of Music or an interpretive dance version of King Kong, let us know.
In fact, we are open to any and all suggestions... this day is for all of us, remember.
