We are renting our community clubhouse and keeping it small and low-key, except that I am plotting to program some robots I borrowed from school (for lesson planning, of course) to play the wedding march and proceed in front of her decked with tissue paper flowers. And if you think robots can't dance and sing, look what my students did in the link.

We will do the food ourselves. She just sent me her menu, and I'd appreciate some advice. I am so against the deviled eggs, because they need to be done at the last minute. We are going to cut the tops off mini peppers, and fill the whole thing, which means we can do those in the morning and stack them, so that's quite different.

I can see that we will need gluten free food, as my oldest friend (we met when we were 12, hrrrrmph years ago) can't have gluten. DD doesn't want dips, probably because of the drips. I'd really appreciate comments and suggestions.
