: Hey, sis. I'm hoping you can help me and my fiancÚ with our wedding plans.

Carol: How much help do you need?

Ted: We already have our guest list, and we've hired a flower shop for the bouquet and the corsages. We were hoping for your help with the reception.

Carol: O.K. Where do we start? Did you decide on music or caterers yet?

Ted: My friend has volunteered to DJ and he'll bring some good dance music. My
fiancÚ wants jazz and I want rock 'n roll.

Carol: Your friend plans to play both?

Ted: We can start with jazz and then do rock 'n roll or we can combine both all night. What do you think?

Carol: I'd opt for a combination if your friend's really good at mixing music. As to the food, are you aiming for gourmet or home-style?

Ted: We really can't decide. Any thoughts on that?

Carol: Well, it's an important day, so I'd go with gourmet and include some classics, like a basic chicken dish and a vegetarian lasagna so that everyone's happy.

Ted: Your wedding was great--beautiful and fun at the same time. I knew you'd have some good ideas!

Carol: Thanks! I'm sure your reception will be a lot of fun too.
