Okay, my BIL got married in Fiji a few weekends ago and is having a family reception this weekend. I wanted to make some of the heart shaped wedding dress/ groom cookies but now am overthinking it (as usual). She wore a white gown for the ceremony-- no problem. He wore just a white shirt-- would it be weird to try and do a white shirt for the groom cookie?? Anyone done anything like that?? My other thought was do her dress and maybe some flipflop cookies... HELP!!! LOL

Thanks so much!

I think it should be fine to do the white shirt for the groom. I know lots of guys who get married like that, but I live at the beach so it's pretty common. Maybe you could add in a few of the flip flop cookies along with the bride and groom if you have time, cuz I think those are cute too, especially if it was an informal wedding. I know, probably not much help! lol... Just have fun and I'm sure your BIL will love whatever you come up with.

Fiji has some of the most beautiful exotic flowers there are. Not sure what the cookies look like to begin with, but what about a exotic flower buttoneer on the shirt, or a tropical color beading on the dress cookie still incorporating the white?

I like the white shirt for the groom. Maybe you could frost on some tiny white hibiscus flowers - kind of like a white on white Hawaiian style shirt... or Fiji style shirt in this case. Good luck icon_smile.gif

You could do flip flops with a heart shaped cutter. Write the last name on one side and the date on the other. White with a tropical flower would be pretty.

Here are some heart flip flops, but they're hard to see because of the packaging.

These are what SD was describing. I love the idea of tropical flower on the shirt.:

The shirt and flower idea sounds great! You could do some electric (pink, orange, green) colors. I know Americolor has terrific electric colors. I love using their electric pink and purple.
