I love to stalk photographer blogs…most of you out there know this, but for those of you first time readers, I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHERS’ blogs. Okay, glad I got that out of my system.
Anyway, I love to read wedding blogs (another note), because many of the bloggers out there plug the names of some fantastic photographers, and I just get hooked. While perusing my wedding blog usuals, I stumbled upon the greatest. idea. ever. Ever. Thanks to the lovely Abby over at Style Me Pretty, I found what could be one of the greatest ideas for a wedding reception (next to the photobooth, no matter how overdone).
Okay, so take a stroll over to this post by the Youngrens and just scroll down, enjoy the gorgeous photos. Those are some great photos, right? I know! I love the backyard wedding, the groom’s tan suit, and wait. Did you see that? You know, that photo almost 3/4 of the way down the page?
You cannot tell me that having a cotton candy machine is not the greatest idea ever. Because it is. The FI and I (and mom included) were tossing around the idea of having one or two old-fashioned popcorn machines at the reception for the later guests to have something to much on. But THIS just adds to the fun. I could care less about how much of a distraction it may be, guests would love this. It would be nostalgic for the older guests and just plain fun for the younger crowd (and by that, I mean our college friends). I know, it’s a bit of a tie to the “Carni” world, but I so love this idea. Popcorn and cotton candy. Best. ideas. ever. You with me on this one?
