I've been trying to stop myself from doing something just because it makes for a "good photo op"...and so far, I've been somewhat successful. For instance, I originally wanted to exit our church (from our evening ceremony) through a line of wedding sparklers... Why? Because it would make a great photo! But, logistically, it makes for a bad everything else. (Last summer I went to Nathan's bff's wedding in St. Louis (read: STL is HOT as hell in July), where they made the wedding guests wait in the St. Louis heat for 30 minutes while they finished their church photos...all so they could get a few shots of the bride and groom leaving in a cloud of bubbles...) Needless to say, after that experience, I decided that I wouldn't force our guests to wait in the November cold, in the dark, somewhat shady neighborhood, just so I can get my photo!
So with that said, herein lies my problem... Is my "need" for a candy buffet caused by my "want" for great photos? I don't know... And, could the candy buffet money be put to better use if we did "passed desserts". I've already purchased the apothecary jars from Michaels (which will be opening their Roosevelt Rd store shortly) and Save on Crafts, so half of the money has already been spent. However (perhaps) hundreds of dollars will still need to be spent on color appropriate candy (like the ones below).
Thoughts? Suggestions? Anything???
