I had no idea making decisions could be so exhausting. Planning a wedding means making lots of little choices, and it really drains your cognitive ability to decide on anything else in everyday life. “What do you want for dinner?” No clue. “Are you coming out this weekend?” Who knows. I can’t even decide what color pens to use some days, and there’s only two choices: blue or black. So when an important wedding decision is more or less made for me? I’m totally on board. And that’s kind of what happened with our wedding favors.
We’re getting married at a local brewery, Monday Night Brewing, a venue that fits us and our city perfectly. With breweries popping up left and right, Atlanta is becoming a huge market for craft beer, and attending a brewery tasting is a suitable way for locals to spend their happy hour or a weekend afternoon. But while Atlanta’s beers and breweries are diverse in style and flavor, they all handle tastings the same way: In Georgia they can’t legally sell any beer, but they can sell you a pint glass and then give you beer tasting tickets on the house. Show up at 5:00 PM with a $10 bill, and you’ll stumble out a few hours later with a six-ticket buzz and a souvenir glass.
