You know that episode of How I Met Your Mother? You know, the one where Marshall and Lily get married, except they’re not able eat any food at their reception and Lily gets totally bombed? Yeah, that one. Well, when Mr. Waterfall and I first saw that episode, we swore up and down that that would never be us. No, we were better than that! We would eat at our wedding, and it would be glorious. So we put a lot of time and effort into choosing a menu that everybody would enjoy, especially us. And then we didn’t eat…
I don’t know how or when, but at some point during wedding planning, we decided that receiving lines were tacky and we hated them.

So, like many other couples, we decided to skip the receiving line and greet every table during dinner instead. Of course, what I now realize is that nobody likes receiving lines; they’re merely a way for the bride and groom to greet every guest without having to spend the night table-hopping. I really wish I had read Mrs. Palm Tree’s post about visiting every table before our wedding—it would have saved us so much heartache. You see, we became obsessed with visiting every table, and not only did we fail—we actually missed out on eating at our wedding, the one thing we swore we wouldn’t do.
Before we go on, let’s take a look at the menu, shall we? While our photographers didn’t take any pictures of the food, our awesome guests sure did!
