Well I am a proffesional baker and I own a bakery so I will be doing my wedding cake, cupcakes and desserts. Mr chocolatechef (FI)  is a chef and has alot of chef friends so we are getting a good deal on food.

We are having a buffet for about 70 persons.

What I do recommend is have all the food prepared at ONE location, if you do have help dont let anyone just bring something, that increases chances of food poisoning.

If you can, I suggest renting a hot box  and chafing dishes to keep the food hot. Also any food to be served cold make sure you have a cold store where ever you recption is.

I don’t have any tips because I haven’t done it, but I’d point you in the direction of Meg at apracticalwedding.com  She’s had several guest posts from people who have self-catered.  Just click on the ‘self catered weddings’ tag at the right side of the screen.

Sara at 2000DollarWedding Self-catered too! We did a partial self cater, and ordered other food. I hired a day of coordinator and her friend/assistant to manage everything the day of and a few family members helped out too. I’d definitely get help for the day of, so you can relax. I never once worried about food or drinks being restocked for our guests, and I was very relaxed the entire day.

What do you mean by self cater? Does self cater mean potluck?
