    @timlorraine: I thought about a chocolate fountain, but came to the conclusion that it would be too messy and if guests double dipped, it would be too germy/unsanitary for me. No one on our guest list has even heard of a candy/cookie bar, and even if they had, I would still do one because that is what we want to do. I don’t care if something seems to be “overdone” or not. If it is my/our style, I am going with it.

    @ritsi_bitsi: Thank you 🙂

    It took us forever to decide what we wanted, but after several months and tastings, we finally made a commitment.

    @timlorraine: Thank you 🙂 I really didn’t mean my comment in a bad way. It is hard to convey words in a comment box. I just really think you should do what you and your Fiance want to do and don’t worry about what might or might not be overdone. If you and your Fiance love it, then that is what you should do. Even if someone has seen it a kazillion times, it will still be done in your style and be unique to you and your Fiance.

    @timlorraine: Personally, I wouldn’t do a chocolate fountain. I’ve seen them in buffets before and they do get quite messy. Plus some of FI’s friends would try to experiment with the chocolate (they’ve bragged about dipping fried chicken into the fountain before…) so that’s something I want to avoid.

    Caesar Salad

    Main course – choice of:

    Shellfish over grits – shrimp, lobster, and scallops over creamy white grits with a lobster butter sauce and fried spinach

    Buttermilk fried chicken – with cracked pepper biscuits, mashed potatoes, collard greens, cream style corn and sausage herb gravy

    Grilled twin filets of beef – with smashed baby red potatoes, haricots verts, and Madeira and Bearnaise sauces

    All tables have macaroni served family style on the table

    Wedding cupcakes:

    Carrot with cream cheese buttercream

    Red velvet with cream cheese buttercream

    Vanilla with vanilla buttercream

    Chocolate with chocolate buttercream
