Sometimes I don’t understand people…

I have been to many weddings where they serve all the fancy schmancy food and little waiters bring champaigne and tid bits to chew on…. WHATEVER!!!

I can’t believe you are all paying these high prices for a serving of so-so food that is less that the size of a happy meal.

Get a grip you wives to be…. Do you think people care if you have asian honey glazed shrimp with a balsamic reduction sauce……..NOOOO they don’t.

I went to a wedding that had BBQ ribs and cole slaw , pizza and bread stix…. IT WAS THE BEST MENU EVER!  and I have been in the “wedding” business for almost 20 years.

GO AHEAD…WASTE YOUR MONEY!
