My NJ cousins are CRAZY. Every year around Labor Day weekend, they throw a huge family clambake in one of their backyards. They rent cotton candy & popcorn machines, cook an unfathomable amount of food, and build a waterslide.
Now, I don't think they're doing all this for the wedding weekend, but I wouldn't be surprised if they had something similarly over-the-top planned.
Here's some pictures of the last clambake I went to. Maybe later I'll post the photos of the fudge fight we had in one of our hotel rooms at the last family wedding. (No euphemism- it really was candy fudge.)
