Our wedding reception was just wonderfully, and completely perfect!
We had our reception at the Oaks Club, which is a little rental hall.
This is one big way to save money on your wedding; have the reception at a rental hall, not a wedding rental hall! The reason for this, is that by adding the word wedding, it automatically makes everything so much more expensive! All the wedding rental halls we looked at, made you use their caterer and bar services for an outrageous price! The rental hall we used, cost only $450 to rent, and they let us bring in our own food, alcohol, and decorations! The result was a much cheaper wedding reception, and a reception that looked exactly how I wanted it to look, not how thousands of other bride's receptions looked!
I do have to brag a little bit here, because Nick was absolutely amazing when it came time to get the hall decorated! He (along with our wedding party) did everything possible to make it look exactly how I dreamed my wedding would look!
Our reception was lots of lace, pearls, and vinyl, with some superhero thrown in!
It was exactly what I wanted! Take a look!
We had Chinese food for our reception! It was so fantastic! Everybody loved it, I'm still having people come up to me and tell me, that it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding!
We had General Tso's, sweet and sour chicken, lo mein, white rice, fried rice, eggrolls, crab rangoons, and vegetable chicken! Yum!
I am absolutely smitten with our cake!
I have dreamed of this cake since I was a little girl, and it was everything I dreamed of!
It was a five tiered cake stand (that me and Nick made), stacked with Krispy Kreme Donuts!!! It had lace, pearls, and black and white fake roses intertwined with the donuts. I wanted it to look like a super fancy wedding cake, except it's not fancy at all, cuz it's donuts!
The top tier was a delicious vanilla cake that we cut and smashed into each other's faces.
The cake toppers were a Spiderman action figure holding a Batgirl action figure!
Take a look!
Stay tuned for the rest... :)
