Food shmood. What about the girls? That's what weddings are really all about. Ellie, are some of your old college friends invited? And please God tell me Sarah is bringing friends. And then tell me that they all look exactly like her. And then tell me they like Indian guys with great hair. Thank you, that is all.
I hate to say it, but Morgan's got a point. We're not preparing for a 10K, we're there to enjoy ourselves. Weddings are about indulging in some fine grub and then going and shaking your money-maker.
Listen Bro, I like a surf-and-turf bonanza as much as the next guy, but we have to be reasonable. Not to mention we have to think about the guests' HEALTH. Think about the caloric intake of a hibachi feast. I'm thinking a menu based around super foods. Kale and quinoa salad, anyone?
Now Morgan, you know I have a huge amount of respect for your cooking. But, we are trying to have an elegant, dignified wedding. We can't have you or anyone else hurling crustaceans around the room! Devon, help me...
I would like to bring up the purple elephant in the room: FOOD. I believe that the culinary delights can really set this wedding off. This is Chuck we talking about here. Everything needs to be the best for my boy.
Why should everyone settle for standard wedding food? When you can have me, building onion volcanoes, dicing, mincing and searing, all over the open grill. Yes, I'm talking about hibachi at the wedding. I didn't go through those long years of training (okay only a few months) for nothing. I am ready to flip the shrimp!
Little known fact: I, Jeffery Barnes, was a wedding planner. Yes it was in 1973. Yes it was in back alleys of some town in Mexico. No it was not a legal marriage. Okay, I was never a wedding planner. But I was in Mexico in 1973.
Now that we have gained "access" to this site, I have some thoughts. Major thoughts:
#1: My sister is a stripper. Just saying.
#2: Will there be open bar? If not, there should be. And if not, I won't be going.
#3: Ain't no party like a Jeffster party 'cause a Jeffster party don't stop.
Just wanted to apologize. Somehow Jeff and Lester have hacked into the site. They are NOT part of the wedding planning. So please ignore them at all costs. Now if I can just figure out how to get rid of them permanently. If only Devon knew less about bear-foot-running and more about computers...
When it comes to this so-called wedding blog, our opinions have been painfully ignored. Our voices have been squelched out. But with a little bit of charm and charisma we "convinced" Ellie to let us get involved (okay, we hacked in.)
We have one simple question: why is there even a debate about the music? It's ludicrous. Hello. Guys. You have US.
We are ready. We are willing. I am able. Jeff is... willing. What am I talking about? Jeffster of course!
Thank you for that, Michael. While I appreciate your input, and I agree music is important, I think we need to go with something a bit more... classic. The music should be lively but elegant throughout the early stages of the reception. Then as the evening rolls on we can let the band rock out a bit.
What do you guys think?
