I’d have to say succulents, paper cranes (origami), and these cool veggie soups that I reminded myself about today. They’re from MSW and they’re served as hors d’oervues (sp?) and are purple, green and orange.

Corn on the cob.  A little messy for a wedding, but it’s my fav food, and I simply must have it.  The caterer built our menu around bringing a grill just for that purpose & is grilling a few other items now too .

I love romanesco broccoli!  i found out about it when I worked at a farm several summers ago in Vermont.  It’s totally beautiful and yummy.  Also beautiful were the orange and purple cauliflower, wouldn’t that look awesome?  With heirloom baby tomatoes… man, I may have to call my caterer!!

About the huitlacoche, I’d definitely try it before you serve it.  I had some in Mexico two summers ago and it was a little overwhelming (it was served in tortillas with eggs).  Just a whole lot of taste going on there.  I could tell that it would be something I liked if I could eat it more regularly but it wasn’t entirely pleasing on the first go (not bad, just not great).

I love your adventuresome palate!  I’d like to incorportate some edible flowers in our salads, like nasturtiums and squash blossoms.   And I’ll be making a whole bunch of truffles in fun flavors like lavender, chili & cinnamon, almond, etc.  🙂

I have a small list of things that I want because I love them, not because I think anyone else will pick up or care about them.

  • prosciutto and melon during the cocktail hour – I ate this for breakfast every day practically when I lived in Italy. Sometimes at least twice a day. It makes me so happy. (Sorry veganglam!)
  • pop from The Pop Shoppe – This is a small manufacturer that is only in Ontario (I think). My parents used to get our pop there when I was a kid, they had refillable bottles in crates. It was a HUGE treat. They disappeared off the market for years, but now they’re back as a more gourmet/retro type thing. You better believe it’s going to be at my wedding! 
  • Dessert buffet – I know this isn’t unusual any more, but I freakin love dessert more than anything else, so I’m having a million desserts with a million cake toppers because it makes me happy! I’m so going to have a stomach ache by the end of the night….
  • Sea salt caramel ice cream – Our caterer is making this for us. Hands down best ice cream ever.
  • I’ve been scouring local thrift shops for months now picking up silver tea pots, creamers, sugar bowls, candle stick holders, and random bits of serving ware for everything. The tea pots are for our centrepieces. I love the people I meet on my adventures and I love all the cool finds and awesome deals! I know no one else will know I picked out all these things, but I love having that level of hands on in our wedding.

So the crazy broccoli looks good but as soon as i looked up corn smut and found this:

Corn smut is a disease of maize caused by the pathogenic plant fungus Ustilago maydis

Ah, corn disease. Yum. It’s safe to say I would probably try a tiny bit of it but I’d be a little annoyed if somebody tried to pass it off as mushroom to me without letting me know what it’d taste like. Cuz immediately I”d go “omg this dish is bad” and think something was wrong with it. Stick a label on it and mention flavors, like ‘reminiscent of mushroom but stronger’ especially since it’s used in other foods, not necessarily as a dip.

Oh my gosh Vegan, you are so awesome and I love you but your wiki page on corn smut made me vomit a bit!  Which is disgustingly awesome!

Haha, I love Melissa’s idea. 

I really would love to do mini pies as favors. I think that’d be the cutest idea ever. I just won’t have the time since they don’t keep as long as cookies, etc.

My FH brings up the corn disease all the time! He loves the fact that not many people have heard of it, and that it’s considered a delicacy in Mexico. That vegetable is seriously awesome btw!

@lilyfait – sorry to threadjack, but I love pies too and found this link a while ago for instructions on how to make tiny pies in mason jars.  You can freeze them for ages, then pull them out and bake them just before the wedding!  I’m going to do jars full of red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting for my guests out of town bags.

In terms of things we want to have just because we like them, we’re considering doing a couple signature drinks made from hard to find liquors that were popular in the 30s.  We’re booze nerds, and these are so unique and tasty, and happen to be in our wedding colors too!  But since we’re already paying $ for the open bar, I don’t know if it makes sense to buy more alcohol to bring on top of that… A girl can dream!

@Bakerella- YUM!  You just made me hungry!

I want fortune cookies because I love love love them and they have been a fun part of our relationship (FI got one that said he would find “true romance tomorrow” the day before we met- no kidding!)  (I know that might be coincidental, but it is still really cool)  They don’t really match my theme, but Oh Well!

@Veganglam- you made me hungry for green veggies!

Red velvet cake, Spicy Praline Pecans and a Chocolate fountain are a must at our wedding. I totally thought the chocolate fountain was a pipe dream, until I realized the wonders of having a really close gay friend who’s WAY into entertaining, he has 2 chocolate fountains of course, it’s like having my own personal martha stewart!

I’m making chocolates for the favors.  I looooove to make candy, and then I can eat up the leftovers!  I’m making salted caramels, chocolate truffles, and peanut butter balls, and putting them on the table in little purple organza bags.  It might be a lot to take on, but I have a group of friends willing to do a chocolate-making assembly line!
