Looks Good Enough to Eat . . . ?

Now, don't get me wrong here people, I like eating as much as the next person. I mean, honestly, I do it everyday; multiple times a day even.

And, as a guest at a wedding, I do realize that traveling to see a wedding and partying it up, can make for quite the appetite. I know that many folks have dessert or cocktail receptions nowadays, but some (like Mr. Giraffe & I) still have sit down reception dinners. This is all very common, people, don't be surprised.

I mean, there's usually a dinner, and my favorite part, a cake
(image source).
And being the totally considerate and helpful guest I often am, I always eat the cake. I mean, its my duty as a wedding guest, honestly.

And dessert tables? Well, Mr. G and I are having one of those for sure (more on that later, though) (image source).
So I'm all about eating dessert for sure. Nope, no gripes about it at all And at a wedding? Why not! Bring on the cake!

But the menus? No, I'm not talking about reading the menu to see what tasty treats are in store. I'm talking about what menus I saw via an email link from the Knot.
No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you, and yes, that is what you think it is . . . If you're thinking its an edible menu (also image source)!! What in the world?! I know, I know, it's a crazy idea.

I mean, sure its kind of neat, but I'm guessing this bride didn't think about what would happen when her ravenous guests start chomping down on those menus while waiting for their plates. If they've all ready eaten the menu, how will they ever know what showing up for the next course?! Clearly, this could turn the whole reception into chaos. That is definitely a risk I'm not willing to take, but its still an interesting idea.

I'm actually not entirely sure this has ever been done before; I'm wait for the wedding police to either confirm or deny this rumor.

Has anybody ever had/seen/eaten an edible menu??
