I decided to make a Flip Flop Basket for our reception, because I was at a wedding last year and ...
Last night FH and I went to a tasting event our choice catering company had. It was free to attend, early registration only. We had a BLAST. The room was fully decorated as a reception with a live jazz band and an open bar. With tons of appetizers being passed, food stations set up, a carving area. My FH insists that he needs to be a part of all food choices and pretty lets gives me full reign of everything else. So, he fully enjoyed himself last night as well. We tried everything from Eye of Round, turkey, chicken, salmon, mahi mahi, omg...the list goes on and on. The dessert station was amazing as well, a full popcorn bar with mini take out boxes, fruit parfaits, a cupcake tower, mini donuts...
We definitely knew we wanted buffet and we went around making notes of what we really liked overall we think we can say we know what we would like our menu to be now. There was one appetizer they didnt serve last night that we would like to have, an avocado egg roll and asian slaw so we are hoping for another tasting even some time towards the end of the year, so we can try that.
They had some beer from a local brewery, Hanger 24 which is brewed in our city of Redlands, so we are thinking of including that at our bar as well. Give a little bit more of a personal touch to our big day.
We are both thoroughly enjoying our wedding planning process and I hope all you lovely fantastic brides out there are doing the same!!
