We had our rehearsal dinner at Fossil Trace Golf Course in Golden, Colorado.  It is a very nice facility, which we actually considered for the wedding itself.  Here are some pics of the venue/course:

This game was a blast...the ladies had to make a wedding dress out of bubble gum, nerd candies & toothpicks.  I had to pick the best one!  It was a mess but everyone had a great time!!  Here's a sample of the dresses:

DIY Uplighting:

I bought 12 Par38 lights with 90W Spot Bulbs @  I will be using the dark pink gels to add a beautiful glow to our reception!  My dad built bases for the lights so that they would be extremely stable & there won't be a fire risk!  Here are some pictures of one of them in action:
