Question What did you eat at your wedding?

I'm not really sure what got me thinking about this (perhaps because I'm hungry and it't won't be dinner for another 2.5 hours ) but I began to think about all the diverse different foods that people serve at their weddings or places that they go to eat. Which leads me to ask, what did you serve/eat at your wedding?

If you mean what did we serve, well we had an assortment of lovely little canapes (afternoon wedding so no big meal), and then we had cake on my parents patio and the party sort of went on into the evening and we put out cold cuts and buns for everyone. (My family doesn't like to stop partying)

If you mean what did I actually get to eat...not a darned thing til we got to our hotel room and ordered pizza! LOL!

We secretly eloped in Tahoe at midnight, so we ate at the only place open afterward! (and I wouldn't recommend the beef.....)

Paul and I had a very small wedding. We went to the court house and had the nicest judge in the world marry us. When we walked in his court room he was in the middle of sentencing a bad guy to 20 years in prison. I'm not sure what the crime was but you could tell Judge Hailey wasn't enjoying himself.

When he married us however he had the biggest smile on his face and you could just tell that he liked what he was doing. Any way....

There was just a few very close family members there. David, Paul's parents, my parents, Paul's brothers and a cousin. Afterwards we
all went out to our favorite Greek place and had pizza! It was a fun evening. The next day we had a huge party at our house. MIL made a million Greek dishes and my mom brought some cheese, meat and veggies trays. BIL made some lemon bars and we had a hazlenut wedding cake. There was a keg downstairs and pleanty lots of hard stuff to drink. It turned into quite the party.

We had a small wedding and dinner afterward, but I don't remember what it was - that has been a lifetime ago - and I was only 17 - didn't pay much attention to food then.

I haven't attended any wedding yet, but Italian wedding dinner is definetely something else from what I am told. So I can imagine a fair picture of what you went through!! When we were watching "My big fat Greek wedding" Cris was saying Italian weddings are even worse than that!! Also my Italian teacher while I attended a 3 months course 2 years ago told me that "dancing" is usually not a part of wedding ritual in Italy, everyone is too busy eating or too full for any bootyshaking!!

urmaniac13, i come from a large italian family - cris is right, big fat greek wedding is mild compared to ours.....but what fun!

my first marriage was like that, but my second marriage we went to negril, jamaica and we were pampered - we actually ate dinner in a japanese benihana type restaurant.
