Mmm. Who doesn't love the tasty mini-croissant sandwiches that come standard at bridal showers?

You don't, unless you'd like to buy a bigger wedding dress.

Croissants are made from butter, flour, butter, salt, butter and water. Oh, and then they're sliced and slathered with butter before the meat and cheese are piled on top. We'd advise you to just pick out the fillings and dump the bread in the trash, but since anything that comes in contact with the golden crescents will undoubtedly be covered in -- you guessed it -- butter, just keep your distance if you want to make it to your wedding with your waistline intact. A better bet? Mini sandwiches on rye squares or even whole-grain crackers.
