iowadiybride :  How far is the venue from area restaurants? Middle Eastern food can be an economnical and picnic-friendly way to feed a lot of people while also accommodating a lot of food issues and preferences–hummus, grape leaves, kabobs, shawarma, etc.

We had a build your own sandwich bar at my rehearsal dinner. We also had salads and fruit, in addition to drinks and dessert. Our menu at the wedding was also BBQ heavy, so we didnt want to do anything too similar. You could also do big trays of pasta too, if there is an italian restaurant around (or of you want to cook those items ahead of time to save $$)!

That about a taco bar? Super affordable and appropriate for summer.

Other ideas might be baked potato bar, mac and cheese bar and etc. I find that guest love to customize their food at more casual functions.
