Instead of rice, after the wedding ceremony, everyone throws Parmesan cheese!

If you like stuff like this, Vinnie's pizza in Brooklyn does similar stuff, like making a pizza box out of actual pizza.

It’s the chili flakes that could be a real problem...

I wore a kilt at our wedding - assuming I could have just replaced the sgian dubh with a pepperoni or Italian sausage?

And the sporran with a panzerotti on a chain?

Maybe the one good reason to rent a tux for your own wedding is to mess up someone else's property. But also something of a dick move.

I think it's a perspective issue, but the pizza boutonniere looks photoshopped onto his lapel. Possibly it's just my brain shutting down the idea that this is a real thing.

Also, the last couple weddings I went to didn't have a bouquet toss, which is good for this idea's future, because it essentially precludes that particular tradition. That or you just fuckin go for it, give all of your guests ponchos, and after the pizza-ball toss reveal that your garter has been a breadstick this whole time.

*phone rings*

"Hey!"

"Hey man, what's up?"

"Just got the wedding invite."

"Sweet! You can make it, right?"

"Oh, for sure! Wouldn't miss it for the world. Just have...one question. Under RSVP it says 'Let us know if you want to be seated away from the splatter zone.'"

"Oh yeah! We just wanted to make sure people have the option."

"Dude, option for what?"

Y'all are worried about the tux when she's wearing a white dress? Cold pizza doesn't drip, and while cold pizza is still pizza, i.e., pretty tasty, it's not that celebratory.

What kind of monster dresses in pizza and doesn't bother to reheat it first?

I'm old enough that I knew what that was before I clicked.

The kind of person who, if she wear holding a bouquet of hot, delicious, aromatic pizza and walking up, say, an aisle, would not be able to resist a) dripping hot red grease whilst wearing white, and b) snacking, probably simultaneously.

Not sure why, but my brain reads these words in the voice of Ice T's Law & Order: SVU character. or I guess more specifically in the voice of John Mulaney imitating Ice T's Law & Order: SVU character?

I’m prepping for a colonoscopy and haven’t had solid food since Monday night and this post is, understandably, killing me.

so hungry.

Mine and my husband's relationship pretty much revolves around food. I don't know if it's our Mexican roots or our Millennial foodie ways, but date nights are just an opportunity for us to explore new restaurants and food trends together. Every Friday night, we cook a big dinner together. I mean, the night he proposed, I was still full from the food tour we took earlier that evening.

Aww, this is so nice. I want this. And pizza.

You ate all the cheese
Off the bride's bouquet.

No, it's totally photoshopped. Compare how it looks in the first image of groom and bride versus the groom "I've made a terrible decision" alone picture. They're identical despite the fact his chest is almost side-on in the first picture.

Frankly, I'm not even entirely sure about the bouquet either, although for that they at least didn't use the same image in multiple pictures. The picture of the bride alone with the bouquet looks very convincing, but both pictures of bride and groom it looks extremely photoshopped in.
