- Wedding: July 2013
Good evening bees. I’m kind of new around here, but I’ve been lurking a little bit.
I need some input on my food. I think want to make a slight change with the main items, for a couple reasons. Cost and weather.
A little bit about me and our wedding:
I’m 46, FI is 48. Both 2nd marriages. I had my big fluffy wedding in 1996. He had a JOP in 1988.
Our wedding is EXTREMELY CASUAL, & as inexpensive as humanly possible, more like a picnic. Like, casual, as in, my “wedding dress” is a super light weight flowy sundress that cost $20. We are doing everything ourselves with help from family and friends cooking and baking.
It is 7-13-13 and we’re having it at a State Park/Lake near our campground at one of the pavillions. I guess we are calling it rustic outdoorsy?
It’s very hot and humid in July here. Could be anywhere from 80’s to 100 degrees!
There are 60 people on the guest list. Mostly adults, 3 little kids, 3 teens, 2 preteens.
I am decorating the pavillion a little bit with white table covering, burlap runners, flower “pots” made from cans with sticks and rafia bows with summer flowers with a wildflower look. My FI is cutting our own tree slices and burning our initials & date on them. I have a burlap congrats banner I am making with our names. My invitations have birch trees with our initials, my girlfriend ia making our cake, looking like a birch tree also with our initials carved into it with live wildflowers on it. My BFF is taking pictures (not a professional, but she’s good)
All of the food will be homemade with the exception of the fried chicken.
Here is the menu, tell me what you think. Any advice or ideas will be welcomed.
Pepperoni Roll and a few other finger foods/appetizers, not sure what yet (suggestions please)
Hot Sausage OR Ham BBQ OR Pulled Pork (Definately keeping either the pork OR ham bbq, but I think I want to change the sausage due to cost and seems very heavy for July)
Veggie Tray w/dip
Buns for sanwiches
(NO alcohol permitted in State Park) We’re having people back to our camp later for adult beverages.
Can’t wait to hear your input
