Greg and I feel its our duty to HELP plan this wedding, after all we are the parents. Last night Greg came up with a brilliant idea. Instead of tuxes the guys could wear Chef jackets ~ in black of course, this is a fancy schmancy affair. The gals could wear pink chef jackets. We were going to get the Pastor a chefs hat so he would look different from the rest of the wedding party. Bouquets could be edibles...carrots with to leafy tops still attached, heads of brocolli or cauliflower, etc. These bouquets could serve 2 purposes ~ bouquet and munchie if the ceremony goes on too long. Gifts for the attendants could be carving knife sets, or something else to match the foodie theme.
Then we were going to help stock their pantry by tossing edibles instead of just birdseed after the reception. We thought of having them carry open gallon ziploc bags to catch the rice in. And then Amy got into the planning and came up with some really wonderful ideas ~ throwing packs of Ramen noodles, canned goods, frozen turkeys, and cases of water bottles (Amy is all heart & extremely creative). We figured instead of everyone yelling...good luck, we love you, call us soon ~ we could yell...watch out, incoming, duck~
Somehow, Katie did not catch the vision for this idea. I'm not sure why, but it was all thought of with love and concern for the new couple setting up their first home!!!!!!!!!
Can anyone else see a problem with this? Or is Katie just being really sensitive?
(I sincerely hope and pray that anyone who read this idiotic rambling knows that I was kidding! But it did give me a great post for the blog ~ and yes, the above coversation really happened.)
