My parents are helping out with my wedding, and they think it will be a good money saver if we make the food ourselves. We have lots and lots of family and friends to help out and we will most likely hire people to serve the food.
Has anyone else done this? What foods did you serve?

Great question! Hopefully some ladies will answer. 🙂

I DIYed sooo much for my wedding, but I can’t imagine doing the food!
One of the biggest problems I encountered with DIY flowers was getting them delivered to the venue. How would your food make it there?
Also, does your venue let you bring your own food? I had to have licensed caterers at my venue for insurance reasons.

I haven’t done this yet for my own wedding but I have done this many times with friends for their weddings. It is doable but it will mean that someone is going to miss the ceremony. I suggest hiring someone reliable to be that person. Many things can be done in crockpots and electric roasters. What type of food did you have in mind? I have a couple hundred sugestions floating around in my head and can link you recipes but I am feeling a tad under the weather and don’t want to list a ton of useless off theme suggestions so if you need help just PM me and I will help you out. Let me know what time of day, type of venue, is power going to be an issue, type of food you like ie, mexican, italian, bbq, classic, etc. I have done this type of thing several hundred times so I would be glad to share my experience with anyone. 🙂

@secondchances i am hiring a caterer for my cocktail hour (gift from aunt) and the buffet dinner is going to cooked by relatives. all the cooking will be light/easy and done mostly the night before/extremely eary same morning. do you think someone will STILL have to miss the ceremony if the food/set-up is done before the ceremony? im nervous about this due to the fact that we are on an EXTREMELY tight budget and may already be over.
