Friggin frosted sprinkled cups of hell

Damn weddings are a pain in the ass. It took 15 hours to make 24 giveways for the bridal shower tomorrow afternoon. First we shopped for cellophane baggies, ribbons, charms, thank you tags, sprinkles, edible metal balls, cupcake holders, eggs, frosting and cupcakes-in -a-box. Thank goodness for Duncan Hines! Then we baked 48 cupcakes. Chocolate and lemon. With cream cheese frosting and purple sprinkles. We assembled the baggies, frosted and sprinkled the cupcakes and beribboned everything. Three of us worked on it all stinkin' evening. Don't get me wrong, it was totally fun to hang out with my girlfriends and their husbands but it was a lot of work. A LOT. The bride had no idea before we got into it how long it would take. I'm exhausted and can barely type but I need to work on the Groom Trivia game for tomorrow. Yay me. Don't ever let me have a wedding of my own!

If you do have your own wedding, you might forego the edible metal balls.

Not a fan of edible metal balls? Me neither!

That sounds like my vision of hell

Nuptial bliss may even be possible without the edible metal balls, charms, sprinkles and thank you tags.

Will people really say, after the wedding, "you know, what really made that wedding especially memorable was the edible metal balls on top of the beribboned cupcakes"?

It seems like too much fussing around, to me.

They weren't on top of the cupcakes. They were rolling around in the bottom of the cellophane baggies. We had purple sprinkles on top of the cupcakes. I didn't even get to bring cupcakes home! Grrr... Anyway, I hope I can find nuptial bliss at City Hall followed by a Mediterranean weddingmoon. It's too much fussing around for me too. The problem is that I love to plan events. But this way I get to do it without spending too much of my own money :)
