I think that sounds lovely! As a guest I would much rather enjoy a carving station and potato bar then pot luck any day! As a bride I’m more of a sit down and bring me plate of food kinda gal but, if my budget wouldn’t allow it I would probably be doing something similar as you! It was very nice of your family member to help you guys out.

It was very generous of your relative to offer to pay for a caterer!!  A carving station and a potato bar will serve well as the main entree options so that rest of your guests can just focus on providing side dishes, desserts, appetizers, etc.

As a guest, I would prefer the carving station and the baked potato bar over potluck as well.  I think it’s perfectly fine for a wedding.  I’m getting fed!

Alot of venues now offer carving stations as choices in addition to their standard buffets and sit down dinners.  It is a very hip thing to do and will probably be a unique feature to your wedding that most of your guests have never seen.

Hey, I have been to receptions that were just cheese and wine. (And then the wine ran out!!) As long as you feed your guests, I don’t think anyone will really care. IF there are those snooty people, then they could just deal with it and order pizza later. 😉

I’ve been to a wedding reception where the food was what you are describing.  I heard no complaints about the food.  The only thing I would contribute is to make sure that you have a good layout so that people can move about around the station/bar area and navigate their way to seats.  It was pretty cramped at the reception I attended.

Personally I would much rather have the catered option than a pot luck as a guest. I’ve heard horror stories from a few friends who attended a pot luck reception (spoiled potato salad). When you go with a licensed caterer, they have strict food prep and food handling guidelines they must adhere to. So, I think from both a taste and a safety issue, the caterer is almost always the better option!
