I am Having my budget backyard wedding/reception for about 150 people. It wiil be from 4pm to 10pm My Fiance family wants to help with well, everything. Tonight they asked me what food I want. (They are very frugal) I have no idea. I just want things to be as easy as possible so everyone can have a good time. Any suggestions?

is it like an elegant, sorta formal backyard wedding or is it more of a casual scene? for frugal + casual, you could do barbeque maybe. burgers and dogs and chicken breasts and stuff. i’ve seen this very well done in the past.

EASY!!! BBQ! go to your local meat market, grab some skirt steak, salmon, hot dogs and burgers. salads, cakes…..i went to a back yard bbq wedding and it was a BLAST!!! with amazing comfort food!

It will be casual. BBQ is a great idea but eveytime the family gets together for BBQ my Fiance is the one cooking. I guess I could suggest it and see if anyone wants to take his place at the grill.

can your Fiance smoke a bunch of things? That way he can put the food on 8 hours ahead of time if necessary and all someone needs to know how to do is watch the temp gauge and open/close vents =D

what about a spit? i ask because my brother has a amazing one that everyone uses, just put joints of beef/pork/lamb/chicken on it and it cooks with min effort and the chef only has to check on it and slice it up. otherwise what about some food stations, one being cold ham with cheeses, another being mash & roasted veggies, another being pastas so a little bit different than the usual bbq but the food is hardy and filling
