Hot Dog! It's a Wedding!

July is Hot Dog month. As it well should be. Being a born and bred Chicago gal, I love a good hot dog.

But, I will tell you right now that I am a ketchup lover. And (prepare to gasp) I positively HATE mustard.

Now that I've gotten that off my chest, we can move on.

So, when I heard that this is Hot Dog Month, I immediately thought, "Hot dogs at a wedding!" because that's just how my brain works. But really, wouldn't that be fun?

This doesn't have to be limited to an outdoor wedding, either. There are companies that will bring the dogs to you!

Have you ever had a hot dog from a cart on a hot summer day? Mmmm... there's nothing better. Unless maybe it's a hot dog cart at your wedding! Check out Carts of Chicago for one of their nifty mobile hot dog carts. Just make sure they have extra ketchup.

Here's another idea - the folks at Portillo's can cater your event. They even have an amazing chocolate cake. In fact, one of my grooms last year insisted on chocolate cake from Portillo's for the wedding. It's that good. Heck, I'm starting to think you should have your wedding AT Portillo's!

If you really like hot dogs, they can even be your wedding theme. I found cute hot dog wedding products offered by Wedding Pop, including invitations.

Now that I've told you about this, I think I'm going to go have a hot dog for lunch. You should, too.
