  43. For my rehearsal dinner...I dunno. I think I'll let my fiance pick that. He doesn't have many opinions when it comes to the wedding details, but whenever I mention the food he's suddenly very interested! He does like steak houses, and since we won't be doing beef for the wedding meal I could see doing Outback Steakhouse!
