Big or small, minimalist or extravagant, in vacation destinations or in backyards, weddings come in all shapes and sizes. I’ve always loved weddings – It’s why offering dessert catering at weddings is so much fun for us at Great Scott.
One of my favorite wedding memories is from a reception I attended a few years ago. During what is traditionally the bouquet and garter toss, the newlyweds did something different.
The DJ started by asking all of the married couples at the reception to join the newlyweds on the dance floor. As the music began, the DJ asked couples who had been married less than a year to return to their table, and of course, the newlyweds returned to their seats along with a few other couples.
On and on the DJ went, higher and higher.
Eventually, just one couple was left on the dance floor, who had been married the longest — 58 years!
The newlyweds then returned to the dance floor and presented the bouquet to them and then the two couples shared a dance.
That moment has stuck in my mind all these years not just because it was different, but because that choice said something about the newly wedded couple. It said something about their values; it demonstrated how much they respected commitment and that they wanted to honor another couple who had done it well.
One of my favorite parts of weddings has always been witnessing how couples make the ceremony and reception a reflection of themselves, their values, and their life together.
Great Scott loves helping couples make unique memories! Being invited to participate in your wedding is a special honor, and we take that honor seriously.
The couples we’ve worked with have done lots of different things with our dessert catering. We’ve had pops waiting for guests after exiting the ceremony, a push-cart at an outdoor wedding reception, and we’ve even set up a trike for a pre-wedding golf outing. We love new, out-of-the-wrapper ideas!
If you’re planning your big day and are curious about how Great Scott pops could add a little flair to your big day, get in touch! We’d love to talk to you.
