Every woman has a different idea of what her dream wedding looks like. Some prefer a small church and a quiet dinner, while others love a noisy party at the reception.
The one thing all weddings have in common is food, and these 13 brides made their favorite dishes the star of their big day:
1. The Poutine Cake
Okay, so this indulgent treat was served at a bachelorette party, but it's so impressive that it deserves an honorable mention. Poutine is a traditional French Canadian snack combining fries, cheese curds and gravy. Patate Mallette's three-tiered creation weighed in at over 26 pounds, and judging by the look on her face glowing bride Patricia Truchon absolutely loved it.
2. The Fried Chicken Bouquet
This is the one bouquet that men and women are sure to fight over. Korean YouTube channel Cookat TV walk through all the steps to make your own finger-licking-good bouquet, which is perfect if you're struck by a craving during the ceremony.
3. "I Love Ribs"
Jamie popped the question to Andrea after the couple enjoyed a dinner at their favorite all-you-can-eat barbecue restaurant, so there's no points for guessing what they picked for their reception dinner. You can tell from Andrea's face that she's ready to "wreck the dress" with some rib sauce.
4. Freshly Picked Bouquets
If you do make that fried chicken bouquet, you might want to balance it out with some healthy options for your bridesmaids. As MyWedding points out, a handful of locally grown produce is much cheaper than a bouquet, and it won't upset any guests with flower allergies. As these brides demonstrate, you can really let your imagination run wild with combinations of fruits, flowers and veggies.
5. There's something about Waffle House
This 24-hour destination for good food has become a popular wedding destination for southern couples, like LaKisha and Brently. They arranged for a Waffle House food truck to greet their guests as they left the church.
Lisa and Gerard had the same idea, stopping by for their first waffle as a married couple after their guests had gone home.
What could be more romantic than that?
