Achem. As I was saying. I mentioned a while back that a simple and free way to class up your wedding is styling. Take elements you are already planning to have, and display them in a way that looks beautiful. Like many budget savvy brides, I’m thinking of the buffet option. Clearly, I will not be paying for each guest to have their own waiter. However, I live in fear of the giant aluminum buffet warmer. They are infinitely practical, I know, but they will bother me because I think they are ugly. So I’ve decided to bother my caterer (this is why I’m paying a caterer, I don’t want to be insufferably bossy to a friend) to set up a lovely buffet table sans aluminum buffet warmers. This table is a really classy option of a Mediterranean style buffet spread. And all it takes is food, linens, and plates. All things we are already paying for.
