Southern Weddings

Friday evening, we joined most of our guests at a local lobster shack, Boothbay Lobster Wharf, for dinner. In order to keep costs down, my parents decided to hold, not host, this event. Remember when we discussed this in Southern Etiquette? I highly recommend this option for couples who want a welcome event but aren’t sure how to cover the expense! It worked perfectly for us and our location, since guests ordered at the window then took their food upstairs to our designated (and decorated!) area to eat. Perfectly casual, and perfect for mingling. Once again, Jenna was on hand to snap candids!

For the tables, we dressed up simple glass hurricanes with sheets of gingham waxed paper from the Container Store. And in case you can’t all read the sign I made, it says “Claws for celebration!” I crack myself up…

At the end of the night, guests received Wicked Whoopies. Whoopie pies are a Maine treasure — the state even has a whoopie pie day! — so we thought they were an appropriately sweet end to the festivities. Big thanks again to Jenna for these photos — I’ll be back with more soon from the actual wedding day!

    What a great idea! I’m sure all the guests loved eating lobster, who wouldn’t?
