This sounds so great!  I’m a horrible cook, I can barely make pasta, but I would have loved to do something like this.  I hope my catered brunch turns out okay :S

Great job!  I’m glad it turned out so well!  Meg at apracticalwedding.com has been doing a series on this, you should contact her to share your experience over there!  It’s always so nice to hear from people who have done non-traditional things for their weddings.  🙂

i have to say that’s pretty awesome!!! and i do agree – cost of catering is absolutely rediculous…my husband is the manger of a catering business and much less expensive than most around here – we’re luckily getting all of our food at cost (his boss is awesome!) and it’s coming out to $5.50 / person – at about 100 people…so we’re looking at $550 total – but that’s only food, that doesn’t include cost of china and the servers he’ll have to hire since, obviously, his co-workers are his friends and will be AT the wedding NOT working it! lol.

but either way – very ambitious of you and great run down! very cool!

Wow. Given how many hours of your life you clearly put into this, I’d say the going rate for catering is actually quite fair (as long as the food is good)!!

Congrats on the wedding!  I’d love to see some pics, I remember you had the same purple shoes as me!

Thanks so much for posting these little tips! We’ve been planning on catering our own wedding and I’ve been wondering on these!

Wow.  That’s so impressive.  I’m planning to “cater” my own, but that means burgers, sausages and salads etc for our backyard bbq wedding.  Your tips are so great.  Thanks for sharing.

I am impressed.  I can barely boil water to make pasta for me and FI, let alone cook for 50.
