Please invite me to your wedding.  I promise to eat all the food your guests are too “high class” for.

But seriously, your menu sounds fantastic!

Um can I say the apps and the crayfish sound simply amazing? Oooh yum! I don’t like fried chicken, but I know a bunch of people do. So I think people will be all over you menu because you aren’t doing the tradish wedding menu.

 

I second an invite. I will totes eat all your food.

I think it’s wonderful! As for your aunt…*sigh*. Weddings can apparently cause a severe disconnect between the head and the mouth for some people. You know it’s going to be fabulous, so just make her eat her words! ….and the fried chicken ๐Ÿ™‚

I think as long as the food is good quality and there’s enough of it, you’re good. That menu sounds absolutely delicious. 

Unfortunately, a lot of people, especially in the older generations, have this pre-conception about what a wedding should be. Both of our moms, for instance, were confused by things like stations vs. seated dinner, not having all-white decor, etc so we had to talk them through all of these decisions. Of course, you can’t explain your rationale to all your guests, so you might have to deal with some negative feedback. You could say something like, “Yes, we’re going for a southern-themed buffet – who doesn’t like some good soul food?”

Yum!  I’ll come to eat the food.  That’s a ton of options.

Comments like these is why I tell people (esp family) that our wedding details are a surprise!  I don’t think chicken is tacky. And just reading the apps made my mouth water! 

I’m having spaghetti why… because it is my favorite meal in the whole world and if someone doesn’t think that it is classy enough then they just can sit there and watch the rest of us lick our plates! ๐Ÿ™‚

Some people really, deeply think that any deviation from the norm (in this case, rubber chicken with starch wedding menu) is an afront to All That Is Holy In This Universe. It has nothing to do with your menu, because it sounds incredibly awesome.

By The Way, I also have this aunt. My favorite of her shenanigans was “innocently” pointing out the tattoo my cousin had covered (slightly imperfectly) at her wedding to my 80+ conservative grandmother.

omg, woman, those appetizers sound so good – if i were your wedding guest, I’d appreciate a heads up before your dinner so i wore an empire waist dress to hide my full belly after dinner! haha. Don’t listen to anyone – the menu sounds fun and yummy (which is most important, no?)

In my hometown, fried chicken is EXPECTED at a wedding.  If you serve something other than fried chicken, people think you paid too much for your food.
