I’m working to put together our wedding. Yup, a groom doing the duties. I’m at a stumbling block. We are on a limited budget. We have a theme and a venue. We’re going with a vintage/carnival to be held at teh Carousel Museum in Bristol, CT. Things are coming together well and we’re on budget BUT….
We want to keep the costs low so we were thinking finger foods. The issue is, we have some deitary restrictions. low fat, low carb and NO SUGAR! The fun of a bride and groom with gasteric bypass. =)
We want carnival style foods that have bee “classed-up” but need to make sure there are things we can eat ourselves.
The things that come easily to mind don’t work that well for us: Mac and cheese, cotton cany, fried dough.
Any suggestions would be helpful. Both budget and food wise.

How about a popcorn machine? I think that is fairly low in fat. Frozen yogurt,pretzels,hot dogs or burgers?

Yes a popcorn machine! Rent a fancy one just to give people something to talk about.
Corn on the cob is a good one too (and healthy).
Apparently your needs are similar to diabetics. Check out these two links:

I just thought of something else. You could set up a little makeshift hotdog stand, and have weiner slices on toothpicks for the low-carb option.

Doh. For some reason, popcorn slipped my mind. This is a major mistake becasue i eeven own a popcorn machine. I did some custom movie themed graphics on in. [link removed] hmmm. maybe I’ll redo it with our colors and wedding logo.
Also I contacted a number of caterers today and asked for pricing and some suggestions. So far 1 caterer replied saying that I shoudl just have full blown carts (hotdog, popcorn, fried dough, cottoncand) THen he told me it was going to be $60-$70 PP. Ouch.
