And the Bride Wore.... Bacon?

Some of my silliest friends totally hijacked my Facebook wall yesterday.

Oh, it all started innocently enough; one friend posted some roses made of bacon on my Facebook wall and suggested I carry those in my wedding.



I have NO IDEA why.... probably on account of how, ahem, Michael and I cook with bacon so much and post the recipes on the blog.

Blink Blink.

Well, that's MY story and I'm stickin' to it.



So anyhow, that one innocent, harmless picture led to a bacon-posting free-for-all in which my 'friends' attempted to help me plan a whole bacon-themed wedding and bombarded me with 3,072 Facebook notifications along those lines.

And I'll be honest, I wasn't too terribly opposed to the idea, seeing as how I do find bacon to be the most sensual of the salted, cured meats.

And, because Everything goes better with BACON, a fact which looks quite elegant emblazoned upon this lovely bacon cake:


Of course, the above cake would be perfect for the Groom's cake if you wanted something more traditional for the Bride's cake... like this one:



For the toast, did you know there are Bacon Martinis? I had NO IDEA!



Of course, weddings are all about THE DRESS. Why not a bacon dress? If not for the bride, think how STUNNING your bridesmaids would be in this little number...



You know how brides always con their bridesmaids into shelling out WAY too much money for a high-dollar bridesmaid dress with the famous lie, "YOU CAN HAVE IT ALTERED AND WEAR IT AGAIN AFTER THE WEDDING!"  Uh, yeah... Well, with this one you TOTALLY could. PERFECT for church!

Even Garfield knows the appeal of the bacon dress...



And naturally, your bridesmaids will need matching bacon shoes.



And perhaps this stunning purse to match... (I'm thinking sweet gift from the bride at the bridesmaids luncheon?)



With this tucked inside, of course...



And always, always.... your nails should match your purse and shoes... that's just good etiquette you should know if your momma raised you right.


Let's not forget about a dashing suit for the sharp-dressed groom....



Or your ring-bearer...



Your flower girls will need some hair accessories:




For the honeymoon? OK, maybe for after the honeymoon is over....



For any future bambinos that are sure to come along...




So there you have it. My only regret is that I didn't have longer to plan a little bacon into my OWN wedding.

...Just as long as I have as much bacon as possible AFTER the wedding... ;)

I am laughing so hard! How clever you are. Are you serving bacon Christmas morning? You'll have to plan bacon for every meal.
