I agree that the sausage sounds kind of heavy. When its that hot heavy foods usually are not a good idea. I think everything else sounds great! If you have any vegetarians choices for them are minimal, but if not then I don’t see a problem. One of my sisters had a reception that sounds similar to yours. It was “picnic-style” in a pavilion in a park. We grilled out and had similar sides to what you’re having. It was great and everyone loved it!

Overall it sounds like you are on the right track!  The only thing I see missing is deviled eggs, but perhaps those are only mandatory here in the south?   Or maybe I just love deviled eggs more than the average human.  Either way, you’ve done a great job planning something affordable, yet delicious – good luck!

I don’t know what a pepperoni roll is.  Do you mean like cured meats?  That would be nice to snack on, as would a veggie tray.  Just make sure all the cherry tomatoes are nice and firm…no mushy tomatoes…or else I wouldn’t eat them!  =)

I would not eat BBQ pork.  What about chicken?  It’s cheaper, right?  And MUCH more delicious (to me, your most important guest).  You could do pulled chicken if someone knows how to cook it, as well as pulled pork, and have both available.  The meat being pulled would decrease the “heaviness” of it, you know?


Pennsylvania sucks for liquor laws.  (NWR: Do you think Corbett should get his way with privatizing liquor stores???).  Are you close enough to the border of another state where the laws are better, so you can have drinks at the wedding itself?


The potato salad sounds great.  Instead of tortellini salad I would make a more unique salad, like maybe something with quinoa.  That way, if you have any vegetarians in attendance, they’ll have a delicious and fun option.

Agree about the sausage and agree with deviled eggs, yum!

i think your list sounds pretty complete myself, but maybe do grilled portabella for a veggie option?

I’d be nervous about the potatoe salad curdling due to the heat (the mayo and eggs etc are dairy and can’t be left out in the heat. But otherwise it sounds delish!

Eta – same goes for the deviled eggs people are mentioning.
