Project 365: Day 210: You never go hungry at a Chinese wedding
I went to a relative’s wedding reception recently. I wasn’t originally going; my parents were going themselves, but there was an extra spot and I ended up going at the last minute. Woohoo! I love weddings and receptions. I so rarely get to fully dress up and I relish every moment of wearing something sparkly and girly (which is why I’ve been known to do so for no other reason than wanting to dress up!) The reception was lovely, the bride was beautiful, and the food – traditional Chinese wedding fare – of course, did not disappoint. And I especially appreciated the open bar! Much love to the bartender, who was pretty darn generous with the rum in my (many) rum and cokes! It was a lovely night, with the extra bonus of watching my 12 year old second cousin catching the bouquet (:
Traditional Chinese wedding fare is a literal feast. I’ve been to a lot of Chinese wedding receptions, and if you’ve never been and find yourself an opportunity to go, say yes immediately, lol. It must be experienced at least once.
The twelfth course, two kinds of Chinese cookies, included Chinese almond cookies and Chinese butterfly cookies. I didn’t get to take a picture of them, and I also couldn’t get a good shot of all the desserts after that, which included the wedding cake, tons of fresh fruit, a slew of other cakes including tiramisu, mini cheesecakes, and a bunch of others that I couldn’t recognize, lol. But all the desserts were amazing and to be honest, I was pretty much done by the fifth course. lol. Everything was fantastic though and it was a fun night!
