That sounds like a great idea! I’ve considered doing the less-formal BBQ route since, well, I’m a Georgia peach and all Wink but even then it can get pricey and my mister isn’t thrilled about the BBQ idea I think. Maybe we will have to consider doing an appitizers&desserts kinda shinding when the day comes!

Sounds like it was a hit.  I too am baffled why it cost so much to feed people but it does, so I deal with it.  I was able to get such a steal I am still pinching myself.  I can actually afford to feed my 150 guests a full meal and I am so happy about that.

@mtnhoney:  Yes I understand, it takes time but I am glad you had a such a nice wedding. My wedding planning was very similar to yours. I also managed to keep my prices per person down and have a wonderful wedding, I am a witness that it can be done. 🙂

Good job! I have no hope of feeding people on our tight budget, so we will probably be doing a dessert only reception, and we will have to find someway to get alcohol, because where we are from a dry wedding is pretty much the let down of a century (cash bars are pretty much expected).

Heck yeah!  I’m all about creative solutions to stupidly over-priced food and drinks!  Our venue let us bring in our caterer and alcohol so we are able to do it cheap too!
