What’s the latest wedding food craze in L.A.? French fries.

You can read all about it in this New York Times article, which discusses the trend towards more casual weddings. Interestingly, as the article points out, many affluent brides feel an over-the-top event is tacky and even offensive in these tough economic times, so they opt for a more casual affair (what’s more casual than French fries?). Thing is, they often spend as much money (sometimes more) trying to make their weddings look homegrown and low-key.

I’m all for the fries though. With salt and malt vinegar of course.

As the event specialist quoted in the New York Times said:

“There is nobody who won’t grab a French fry.”
