What are some of the most famous pies you should definitely include in your wedding menu? We’ve gathered them right below – so read on and find out more.

  • Salted-Caramel Chocolate Pie. A bit salty, and surely sweet, this pie will pamper your guests’ taste buds and make them feel truly satisfied with the treat you’ve placed on the table. If you only want to offer a couple of types of pies, this has to land on your list of options.
  • Key Lime Pie. It doesn’t get more Southern than this. Delicious, refreshing and unique in every single aspect, the classic key lime pie is a staple of the Southern cuisine – one you really, really must include in your wedding menu. Delicious!
  • Icebox Pie. Planning a summer wedding? An icebox pie will be more than suitable for you, then! These amazing desserts come straight from the 19th century (when they were cooled down in so-called “iceboxes”, the ancestors of modern refrigerators) – and, to be completely honest, they are absolutely amazing. They also come in a wide variety of flavors and combinations, so you are bound to find something that fits you and your wedding.

Everything We Know about Ed Sheeran’s Engagement

Leave a comment

As you may know it, Ed Sheeran recently got engaged – and truth be told, we’re very excited about the news. We cannot but imagine how romantic and sweet his wedding will be, especially considering how romantic and sweet his songs are!

What do we know about Ed Sheeran’s engagement at this point? Read on and find out more:

  • Ed Sheeran announced his engagement to Cherry Seaborn at the beginning of 2018, and some people even believed that they have already tied the knot – mostly because he was spotted wearing a ring on his left hand. However, the gossip has already been confirmed as untrue, as the couple have not gotten married yet.
  • According to some sources, the ring spotted on Ed Sheeran’s finger is actually an engagement ring (!) – which, given the huge popularity of the singer, means that we might see more men’s engagement rings from now on.
  • The wedding date hasn’t been set yet, but we are all really excited for the couple. However, according to Sheeran himself, getting married and starting a family will probably mean he will step off the stage and away from the public eye…
  • Some sources also say that Ed Sheeran plans on building a chapel on his own property – a 32 feet tall one that would be able to accommodate approximately 24 guests. If that happens, it means that Ed Sheeran will want to keep his wedding quite private (same as he did with his engagement).

Plan a Superb Dessert Table for Your Southern Wedding

Leave a comment


Few things are more pleasing than a bunch of sweet treats arranged in a stylish, beautiful way – and that is probably why dessert tables have grown to be almost a must at weddings. You have all the reasons to want to include a candy bar at your wedding too – and if you do decide on it, you surely want to make it look amazing.

How do you incorporate a gorgeous, delicious one into your Southern wedding, though? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Give Southern desserts a classy twist. You don’t have to go too much over the top – spinning traditional Southern desserts to make them more “wedding-worthy” can actually help you create an absolutely stunning dessert table. For instance, you could serve classic banana pudding in glass cones and make them look really nice.
  • Pay attention to the table décor. If you want your dessert table to actually look Southern, make sure to include elements that speak about country-chic beauty and Southern staples. For example, you could decorate a simple vintage-looking vanity mirror table with greenery and place your desserts there – we guarantee people will just love it!
  • You can also make them themed. If you don’t want to have a classic wedding dessert table, you can make a themed one. For instance, you could create a really nice pie table with different types of Southern pies (and use the aforementioned tip to decorate this special wedding element).

How to Plan a Genuine Southern Wedding Menu

Leave a comment

Having a Southern wedding is, most of the times, a lot different than many other types of weddings up North. One thing is common, though: food will always be a huge element in a wedding, regardless of whether it’s held in the South or not.

How do you plan a genuine, delicious Southern wedding menu? We have some tips for you – so read on and inspire yourself:

  • In the South, people put a lot of accent on their family relationships – and many times, spending quality time with your family and friends means eating great food. This adds even more importance to your wedding menu – so don’t be afraid to make it very personal (e.g. using a particular ham stuffed biscuits recipe you loved in your family).
  • Not all Southern weddings are alike, though. They can differ a lot from one state to another, and they can even display huge differences from one region to another. Of course, there will always be foods that are considered to be avatars of the Southern cuisine – but every region has something special about it, so you should definitely include this in your wedding menu.
  • For instance, weddings in the Mountain South area are likely to serve Apple Stack Cakes. Traditionally, guests brought the layers for the cake at the wedding and the bride’s family added them to the cake each time a new guest would arrive at the wedding.
  • Southern food is so diverse precisely because it has been influenced by world-renowned cuisines – such as Greek, Italian, Africa, or Irish. If your guests are not from the South, they will be delighted to taste these amazing, unique dishes!
