I don’t live in PA, but I’m using jars from Target, WalMart and Ikea.  They are fairly inexpensive.

Cookie trays can be tricky.  I would put one family member in charge of them.  Have that person collect the cookies the day before then transport them to the reception site the day of.  Check with your venue because some of them will plate the cookies for you.  If you have to plate them yourselves, I would search for inexpensive platters from maybe Ikea to display them on.  Or you could ask family to plate them on something nice!  Make sure they put their names on stuff so they don’t get lost too!

My family is huge on cookies so my mom and aunts are experts  at arranging trays. At my reception, the venue provided trays, so my mom coordinated to have everyone drop their cookies at our house a couple days before the wedding, and then had people drive them to the reception the day before so that they could arrange them. But at my brother’s wedding, they did not tray the cookies. My mom again had people bring the cookies to our house and she and I arranged them on some silver trays that she bought (I think at Pat Catan’s?) inexpensively. So many cookies… mmm…  🙂 All my friends who were from out of town thought the cookie table was awesome! 

Extra tip: have some baggies (cute ones you can buy at Michaels) at the table so guests can bring extras home. If your family is anything like mine we had way too many. At the end of my reception I actually made up 2 baggies of cookies for my husband and I, which we snacked on at the hotel that night and at the airport the next day. Came in very handy 🙂

Yeah, my venue anticipates/expects cookie tables so the plating and replenishing of the table is included in the price. We’ll drop the gathered cookies off there when we go to set up.
