Comfor t foods sound wonderful and folks are more likely to eat that than fancy stuff that is served just because it’s a wedding.

 

Look into local restaurants and see who offers catering. Most of them will be cheaper than a regular wedding caterer. Also, browse the vendor reviews section at http://projectwedding.com for suggestions on places to look into. Some caterers will only serve what is on their pre-existing menus and others will customize whatever you want so don’t be afraid to ask them if they can make a menu judt for you. Make sure to get a tasting before you book them though.

We’re hoping to do a comfort food station, with Mac & Cheese and crabcakes (Maryland, ’nuff said) and maybe coconut shrimp and some kind of comfort veggie dish (I’m thinking brocolli with cheddar cheese).  I would like to serve either a classic Cesar salad or a tomato or roasted red pepper soup.  We have a set list of caterers we can use, so we’ve been contacting them about this and for the most part they have been very kind/accomodating.

Gilneas, that sounds fantastic!!! Are you having that all catered in or are you DIY? Just curious…we are probably going to do our wedding at the lake so I am looking for something very laid back and easy…I thought BBQ but decided against that when I remembered how much I love my dress…and how many kids would be in attendance. YIKES! Icksnay on the arbecue-bay!!
