elephantear:  Have you checked out restaurants with private rooms where you live? You could choose an inexpensive catered measl like pasta, or many restaurants offer a very limited menu-2-3 choices- and your guests order from that menu.

Think outside the box a little too. You could have a brunch reception, an afternoon tea, a picnic etc. Do you have park buildings or pavilions that can be reserved where you live?

If you have a park area available to you, you could do a food truck, if you have them in your area. I know that sounds a little weird but I looked into it for my rehearsal dinner. Fiance and I are big on hitting up breweries and food trucks, it’s a little quirky but a lot of fun. The ones I have seen for rent can customize a menu for your event.

Yes check restaurants. We’re getting married at Maggiano’s in downtown Chicago. Some hotels may do a small wedding. Our wedding is going to be between 25-30.
