Ooh, these are good questions! I’ve never been to a couple’s shower before, but I know my brother attended one that was a cookout like you mentioned. Do you think you could get away with grilling since there will be a bonfire and everything, too? That seems like an easy way to feed a bunch of people!

I’ll keep thinking and let you know if I come up with anything. And in the meantime, maybe some other bees will weigh in. 🙂

If you could grill, you can do some Carne Asada and serve it fajita style. That’s an easy way to cook for a large number of people at a reasonable cost.

Do you need a theme for the party? I never really understood that I guess. I would definitely do a cook out; have a one or two other guests bring their grills to help with the 30+ people. Also make sure everyone has enough propane. You could have a mexico theme. Bright colors for lanters and torches to light up outside, multicolored plates, napkins, balloons; pretty much raid Party City and pick anything! Maybe have little marracas (sp) as party favors. You could have margaritas or another cheap, easy Mexican theme drink. You could also set up a beer pong table (AWAY from the bonfire!!) or two outside as a game for people to play.

Not sure how the party is getting paid for, but you could have the wedding party help by assigning those specific people to bring buns, hotdogs, burgers, chips, soda, plates, cups, sides.
