I think that’s a great idea!! I dont go to Costco, but I do shop at BJ’s, and know they have a lot of frozen apps there too. Not sure if you want to cook anything, but I do think you have a good variety of things. 

I would make sure that you have some veggie offerings in case you have any non meaters around

@MrsSl82be:  lol, non meaters!  We have 1 person who will be at our wedding who is vegetarian (thank goodness not vegan, that would’ve been much more difficult for us), so we’re trying to figure out something for her.  Everyone else in our group is as carnivorous as it gets!

Back to OP, sounds like a good variety, I’d just make sure there’s enough of it for everyone.  FI and I are big hummus eaters, so not sure what your group of people is like, but maybe some chips and dip or hummus and pitas?

This is definitely ok in my book if you are on a budget.  I had an in-suite reception that was catered but it was just the food not appetizers or desserts.  I bought chips/salsa, pretzels, etc. for the bar area.  I went to the dollar store and got awesome clear bowls for everything too.  

I would just make sure it’s enough food for all the guests.  I didn’t consider fruit trays b/c most are family are desserts people.  I too considered the shrimp but most our guests don’t like it.  We had 24 at our reception….all the appetizers sitting around were completely GONE!

@MadameTussaud:  OMG I forgot about the hummus at Costco.  It’s awesome! My mom buys it all the time…definitely agree that should be on the menu as well.

I honestly think its cheaper to do this as a DIY, You can buy fruit and veggies in bulk and created your own platters.

I’d recommend getting some easy hot apps. Lke swedish meatballs that you can put in a slow cooker. Or things that you can just put a bunch on a baking sheet and pop in the oven. I always feel more full with hot apps and there are plenty that are easy to make.

I second the suggestion for their hummus!

I would probably take a look around and see what they have available. I think they have a variety of frozen appetizers that could be cooked.

One thing that makes a huge difference is to remember to take the food out of the trays or containers it comes in and place it on your own. It’s amazing what a difference it makes when the visual presentaion is changed.

@Dell79:  Costco has wedding invitations?!  They never cease to surprise me… I think we’re going to be getting our alcohol from there.  They have new champagne (Kirkland brand but imported from France) and it’s great!!!

We get costco platters for parties all the time and we’ll be getting them for our rehearsal dinner too. The shrimp cocktail is delicious, shrimp is always fresh and it comes with a buuuunch of shrimp. Their sandwiches and wraps are yummy, too!
