- Wedding: July 2010
Our original idea (with above caterer) is to hire someone who uses all local ingredients, who has a wide menu variety, including asian inspired dishes, some backyard barbecue type stuff, basically, things that will appeal to a lot of different kinds of people.
I just can’t stop thinking about using some of that money for our honeymoon, or to contribute towards a down payment on a house… So….
Now Im trying to think of some alternative ideas. I do NOT want to cater the entire thing myself (or even with the help of family members and friends) but I would like to entertain some different, unique, ideas.
So here are some I’ve come up with… let me know if you’ve got any others up your sleeves!
(Note, we can’t do a backyard barbecue, as we are doing that for our rehearsal dinner in order to cut costs, at the same venue — my parent’s backyard.)
Also, we are definitely having a dinner, not a lunch, as we have no time constraint for our wedding and are sure people will be staying into the night.
1. Taco truck
2. Panini Grill (this could be a great option, though not very dinnery… but does it matter? We could have grilled vegetables, meats, different cheeses, and sides buffet style.) — We could even buy our own panini grills and gift them to friends and family afterwards! Also, my FH’s favorite food is sandwiches. How suiting!
