    Your mom has a legitimate concern, but I’m sure you cook for guests on other occassions. What I would wonder is if the venue/caterer’s insurance would refuse to kick in if someone got sick off of any of the food since there was outside food there. Aside from that, I’d say that the two or three days elading up to the wedding are VERY busy and stressful, and although I LOVE to cook and bake, I would not have enjoyed it during those few days and I would’ve regretted trying to save a few hundred bucks in such an inconvenient way. I think DIY projects are best left to things that can be done weeks to months in advance.

    I would think since you are baking it would be safer. However some venues don’t allow outside food so it would be a moot issue. I been to a wedding with homemade baked goods, I think the aunts and other family made then not the bride.

    We are doing cookies and triffle for the rehearsal (40 people) and muffins for brunch (50 people). the cookies we already have made and they are in freezer… i would talk to some older ladies who are used to stocking freezer full of squares and cookies for months before the holiday. I would not take on baking the day before the wedding unless youve got a team who really enjoys it on hand.

    We are DIY-ing our food for our reception just because it’s more like a “bon voyage” party with some speeches and a wedding cake (we’re having a DW) but we’re having a bakery do our cake but my grandma, my mom and my aunt are all making 3 kinds of cookies for our reception. We did this for my sisters wedding in December and people were really happy about it!
