@roxirose:  Doesn’t Subway have $2 6 inch subs on special?  I think they are meatball, cold cut tiro, and veggie delite.  Maybe you could get those and then cut them in 1/2.  They will be premade and you can have an array of condiments.  If you think everyone takes the equivalent of a 6 inch sandwich, for 100 people that is $200…is that in your price-range?

Grocery stores usually have nicely priced appetizer platters like a cheese tray, fruit tray, veggie tray, etc…. They aren’t too badly priced, but you could try to make your own too. That would help supplement a sandwich bar. A make-your-own-sandwich bar could be cute, but I would definately fancy it up a bit if you could afford it with premium ingredients like several different meats and cheeses to choose from, bacon, avocado mash, sundried tomatos, sauteed onions, etc…

You know, growing up I went to several church weddings where the ceremony was held, with cake and punch directly afterward in the fellowship hall of the church.  SEVERAL weddings.  So it’s okay if you keep is simple like that, too.

I was pretty impressed when in High School, my older brother got married and his wife’s parents sprung for a “full meal” of sandwiches, some desserts, chips and a few “salads”, like fruit salad.  I grew up in a small town, and that was the “fanciest” wedding I went to until I was in college in a much bigger city.
