Chocolatesuze & Noods’ Reception at Rhodes Phoenix
It’s candy time! So after the tea ceremony I changed back into my wedding dress while sending the super freaking awesome food bloggers to help set up the candy buffet. Woohoo checkout mah candy bar! The idea was for guests to help themselves and fill up the cardboard noodle boxes (from Sydney Packaging) using metal scoops ($2each) with whatever candy they wanted to take home for their bonbonniere. The glass jars were from Reject Store (approx $8each) and I spent $100-$200 buying candy in 2kg bulk bags from Campbells Cash & Carry (you need to be a member) and by the end of the night there was seriously nothing left for me to eat!
Mini lollipops in makeshift vase for my ‘flower decorations’ (thanks mother!)

Da family. And I did a dress change (Calabro Formal Wear Parramatta, $295) whee I like pink!
Heh heh did ya like Noods’ awesome slideshow? He made it in the week leading up to the wedding with large amounts of cussing because he had to learn how to use the program from scratch haha
We didn’t really have time to eat much but look food!
And then it’s time for Josh and Will’s speech…
(Thanks Simon for the video)
BWHAHAHAHA oh Jason you should wear skirts more often hahahahahaa
LOL Will, Jase & Josh you guys were awesome! I heard the boys made Noods go home early just so they could stay back and rehearse haha the skit was gold!
I LOVED watching people scoop their candy! What shall it be? Redskins, Fantales, Sherbies, Gummy bears, Strawberries & Cream, Pineapples or Jaffas?
Uni girls look happy with their candy lol
Bowl of candy!
Helen’s speech made me all gooey inside naw <3
Awesome cake made by Amie! 3 tiered cake of fudgy chocolatey goodness topped with giant gummy bears (US$9.95) from Vat19.com
Ok ok a nicer pic
We didn’t want to do the traditional linking arms and drink wine so we ate the gummy bears haha Noods took a ginormous bite forgetting that he was supposed to do a thank you speech next
And as is Malaysian tradition, a toast by Grand Uncle- Yaaaaaaam sinnnng!
One more time! YAAAAAAAAM SIIIINGGGGG!
Time for the bouquet toss! I didn’t want to injure anyone so opted for tying ribbons to my lollipop bouquet
Only 1 ribbon was actually tied to the lollipops and the rest of the ribbons I held in my hand

And the winner is my bridesmaid Shez bwahahaha I swear I didn’t rig it!
(Photo from Melissa) Noods refused to do a dance so I made him do a conga line
(Photo from Mig) I was pretty surprised that we managed to get majority of people to join the conga line haha
