- Wedding: May 2014 - alder manor
We will be hosting a get together / rehearsal dinner at our home the night before our wedding. I am wondering what sort of food should we provide. We will most likely have it catered. And I would like to avoid italian food, I mean, I want more options than just pasta! Any suggestions!? Thanks in advance!

Barbeque? Pulled pork and/or chicken sandwiches or ribs with cole slaw, baked beans, cabbage or kale? Burgers and dogs with potato or pasta salad, deviled eggs, green beans?

finger food chip and dip would do be good because you don’t want to overwhelm your self the day before the big day

We did this (but at my paren’ts house). I let them pick the food and they wanted to do a pig roast (which also meant that they would get chicken too). I thought it was a gross/weird idea, but everyone seemed to absolutely love it, I stuck with the chicken 🙂 Someone came and catered it and other than that, we had standard BBQ side items (corn bread, pasta salads, etc). It was really nice and easy to have it catered – the caterer even brought the dessert!

I second BBQ or a Mexican buffet, including seasoned chicken and beef fajita meat, flour and corn tortillas, taco shells, queso, etc. Who doesn’t love that? And…beer and margaritas go well with it. 🙂

My bffs did this and they barbequed and had Filipino food catered in as well.

We had a backyard rehearsal dinner at my in laws house. We didn’t have it catered, we just barbecued and had mostly cold or oven baked side dishes. It was super yummy! There were only about 20 people at it though, I can definitely see barbecue getting overwhelming at a certain point.

i agree with above. If your having an outdoor party, keep it simple and have BBQ, pototoes and some cold salads!

We’re just doing burgers and hot dogs lol. With some potato salad and some other side dishes. K.I.S.S. (keep it simple, silly) 😉
