open bar/kids or no kids, cookies and or cake etc are all bride/groom/budget decisions.

haha this is an area that is very much Italian so maybe . . . I am Irish but married an Italian with a very large family

I have never heard of serving cookies at a wedding reception, but I think it is a brilliant idea. It sounds like so much fun, that several members of the family (and maybe friends too) could be a part of the wedding party by contributing their own special cookies. The take home bags or boxes is a nice touch too.

I think it must be a regional thing. Cool idea. I think anymore weddings are less formal and very different. One this summer had pink as her color and she had a cotton candy machine Several lately have a photo booth for guests, complete with clothes to dress up. Never heard of the cookies but sounds fun, maybe that has taken the place of the groom's cake that used to be handed to guests.
