Noticed a few posters said cookies would be something nice to snack on until the couple arrived at their reception. Oh, No, at an NYC Italian wedding you would be snacking at The Cocktail Hour with an open bar. Followed by the big meal of salad, pasta (we call it macaroni), choice of several entrees, then coffee and wedding cake, Veinesee hour and or cookies if it's their tradtion. Oh, just too much food.

We had a welcome change when our granddaughter got married in June. Instead of a cocktail hour there was an open bar and each table was served several platters of appertizers, a lovely entree and coffee and cake. Instead of a wedding cake each table had a theme cake, ours was a RN one as Christine is a RN. Very enjoyable wedding. She even change the venue from CA., where she lives to Las Vegas. Sometimes it is time to begin new tradtions along with the old ones.
