That’s a really cute article! 

Cookies are such a major part of weddings here, and I never knew it until I got into this whole planning thing.  We will be bringing in cookies, then the caterer will plate and arrange them on the cookie table. It’s apparently a must-do!

That’s a great article! I love the cookie thing – we’re doing them as our favors. I think it’s really great when they’re homemade from family recipes.

I loved this article. Those ladies are crazy to make 1,000+ cookies!

I didn’t know massive cookie tables weren’t at ALL weddings until I was pretty much an adult!

I totally needed this article back when we first started looking at venues. Everyone kept talking about a “cookie plating fee” and I finally was like, “What in the world are you talking about?!” Obviously, I’m a Pittsburgh transplant 🙂

Lordy, lol, I never even heard of the cookie table (I’m from NJ) before I started looking at reception places in Pittsburgh. And I certainly didn’t understand the big deal about no cookie table seet up fee until I saw the picture in this article! I thought people would just line up the trays/plates they brought (or the bakery brought) on a table. Now I get it!!

lol what an awesome article!

I had no idea that the cookie table was a Pittsburgh tradition until the last couple of years when people my age started attending out of town weddings.

One of my friends went to a co-worker’s wedding in Philly and she says, “After dinner, I was served one thin slice of cake on a plate. That’s it. Nothing else. No cookies to be seen or heard of.”

Seriously, it IS pretty much sacreligious to NOT have cookies!
