@littleprettyliz: i would highly suggest biting the bullet. :/ we were heavily envolved in the catering aspect and it made it such a headache!

agreed, bite the bullet. I couldn’t imagine having guests help out with the food prep. I want to worry about NOTHING at the reception.

I would have a caterer be responsible for the food. That way if there is  problem they are there to fix it. They usually have the best equipment to keep the food warm and then can take it with them at the end of the night.

I am not sure how you were planning on silverware/plates/glassware, but usually when you have on site caterign they bvring this as well as cart it all away and cleanbing which is another HUGE benefit value ad for the cost (not tomention coffee/tea/water salt pepper etc)

if you really dont think you cant swing the cost of catering, be sure to factor those additional costs in

Another option would be to find some folks who are NOT guests but who have done serivce before (like worked for a caterer/event venue OR restaurant) and hire a few ppls to do the service, dri nks and clean up for you onsite

Good Luck!
