Buffets are usually cheaper than a per-plate meal, and you can have a wider variety of options.

CamlovesJmw, are you having your wedding catered or will you and/or your family be preparing the food?  This will certainly make a difference in terms of options.  It also depends on the type of reception you are having.  If its an outside, less formal event, you will have different options than if its an evening, more formal event.  I don’t know that I would recommend serving sandwiches, but there are certainly lots of fun ideas that you can use to make your reception unique, memorable and budget friendly.  The hive is the perfect place to find those ideas!

Yes, can you tell us more about the wedding.  Time, location ,etc.  I agree, if your wedding is informal, outside that might make a difference on how posters see things, than if it’s more formal, etc.

I know a fun way you could do smaller amounts of food like appetizers and you could do fun sliders and things along those lines!  I went to a wedding this past fall in november where they did those and it was great!  It was a casual reception but still formal!  The food did not seem cheap at all and it was a great topic of conversation as well!!

I’m assuming your having a lunch reception if your in laws are suggesting sandwiches. There are unlimited possibilites as far as what you could serve, but it depends on the mood you want to set. If they’re set on sandwiches you could always do a panini bar with upscale sides and salads, or even pasta is fairly inexpensive if you’re on a budget.

Our wedding is at 2, so that means the reception will be around 3ish.. too early for dinner.  So, we’re just doing heavy hors dvours.   We’re serving several finger sandwiches and meats with rolls (turkey, roast beef, ham, cucumber, pimento cheese, etc.), fruit platters, veggies with a variety of different dips, cheeses, and a couple other "heavy" foods.
