Reception Treat Ideas

~Naturally Flavored Drinking Water~
Love this idea, cuz then we can make as many different flavors to choose from, and it would be cheaper than buying a shit ton of juice and bottled water.
Water is free!
All we'd need is the fruit, which we can buy in bulk...at costco, and a few bags of ice. done.

I'd probably go with:
Orange & Lemon
Watermelon
Lime & Spearmint
Blackberry
---------------------------------

~Flavored Butter~
 Might do a mass flavored butter making party with the wedding party.

Megan B's Bridesmaid Costume


Megan B already has a good idea what to do for the gown. 
Megan as found a wig. She's gonna get an elbow length glove for one of her arms (since Tenel's was severed.) 

As for props:
Rancor Tooth Lightsaber Hilt!
   

Mogs' Bridesmaid Costume

~Oola~

Since Oola is never seen wearing anything other than her slave dancer costume in the movies, 
it's safe to say that it's anything goes where wedding attire is concerned. 
So, since I didn't want my bridesmaid, Megan, prancing around the wedding dressed in practically nothing, 
I searched for dresses that Oola might wear.  
Black, mesh, twi'lek friendly (meaning sexy, and showing a lot of skin) 
These are what I've found so far. I will be continually adding to the list.
