One of my friends is getting married next month. They are going to have a CANDY table. Can't wait to see the assortment the guests have to take home!

Here's hoping that your big day "exceeds your expectations."

Every one of them. Best wishes for a WONDERFUL wedding day.

Oh I totally will! I told my wedding planner that I have to eat cake on the big night! When I go to weddings that's usually what I like to eat anyway! I haven't had any type of cake in over a month, so I'm so over due!

BUMP

So, it is time to find a wedding cake. Anyone have any websites (besides the knot) where one can look at pictured for design ideas? Google images brings up more than a million pictures, and I am overwhelmed!

This isn't exactly for design, but it's a check-list on cakes (a good place to start). The designer is local, but does cakes for Martha Stewart

For the uninitiated, in regards to the Cookie Table: (from Chris Fennimore, of WQED)

The Cookie Connection
"The cookie table is a local wedding tradition worth baking for. Flour, sugar and butter have been disappearing from grocery shelves at an alarming rate over the past few weeks. Like milk and toilet paper on the eve of a winter storm, vanilla extract and chocolate morsels have to be restocked regularly. Are people preparing for some sort of calamity? No, they're just stockpiling cookies for the season of weddings, graduation parties, anniversaries and other family gatherings that seem to hit a peak in June.

I never met a food tradition I didn't like, and the Pittsburgh cookie table is one that came as a welcome surprise to this transplant from Brooklyn, N.Y. The quantity and quality of the cookie assortments at these functions are a source of endless discussion and great family pride. I recently read about one event where there were 800 dozen cookies! You may have heard of even more extravagant displays.

No one seems to know where or how this tasty tradition began, but here are two recipes from my mother's repertoire to add to the table." (He followed with a recipe for pizelles and a tartlet.)

Bringing cookies to a wedding is showing your affection to the bride and groom. I've been to showers where a list was sent around to see if you could make cookies, what type, how many, etc. In the Western PA area, every Cookie Table must have pizelles, mini ladylocks, pecan tassies, thumbprints, mini cheesecakes, those (insert nationality here) Wedding Cakes, and some "kid cookies" (peanut butter, chocolate chips, etc). Ohio ones have to include Buckeyes, too. When you book your caterer, they usually tell you whether or not they will "tray the cookies" - put them on display in a pleasing manner. Truly great Cookie Tables not only have the one main table, but a plate on each table.

I got a lot of good ideas for mine from the Martha Stewart wedding magazines.

my cake:


Mr. Winnibug's groom's cake:

(he was working at the sheriff's dept. when we got married, the prisoner number was our wedding date, 060306, and he's saying "How long am I in for?")

I think we may end up with something similar to Winni's and I'm pretty sure we'll have something UGA related in there somewhere on the groom's cake if we have one - maybe a big bulldawg? Sidenote, he actually asked if we could have the game playing on a big screen projector if our reception happens to fall during a game since we're getting married on a saturday during football season.. wow.

My friends got married in the spring instead of the fall (which she originally wanted) because he's a Penn Stater who does not miss a televised game. I'm so thankful that my Michigan alum bf - although he's a big fan - does not make his whole life for several months of the year revolve around watching The Game on TV.

I have to laugh because this was a concern of mine when I was planning my wedding. I picked a weekend when Auburn would be out of town because some of my bridesmaids and friends would kill me if I made them miss a game and I completely understood it. Unfortunately, Alabama was playing Tennessee in Tuscaloosa! Ugh. It took care of itself because Auburn played early so I could listen to snatches of it but Alabama went into triple overtime and our priest was late to the wedding because he was watching the game. He was a priest in T-town before being moved to Birmingham so we understood. There are pictures in our album with him and us and he's in his birks with his nice robes on.

I think he would DVR the game if he had to but if we can plan around it, he'd be happier, lol. Maybe he can watch it while he gets ready if we end up getting married later in the day... he's probably getting an Uga cake so shouldn't that be enough UGA stuff?? LOL.

My cousin's fiance watched an OSU game in the hotel while the groomsmen were "getting ready" (translation: having drinks). The game wasn't supposed to be over until like 30 minutes after the ceremony was supposed to start. The ceremony ended up running a half hour late because the guys were dressed, but didn't want to leave the game (since there was only 30 minutes left). Everybody in the world called up to their hotel room (her mom, his mom, me, the planner), but they didn't answer because they had decided they weren't leaving the hotel room until the game was over. They strolled into the church a half hour late and she was furious (but it's funny to them now).
