What about just doing a dessert reception. That way you won’t have to worry about it getting cold? If you want to do food too you could always do shrimp, veggies and dip, bruschetta, etc

@MsHopey:  What about a picnic theme?

Or maybe just choose a color theme?

I am not sure really what kind of theme you can do with food unless you pick something cultural… like an Indian food theme, or Mexican or something.

Maybe a southern (like USA) theme?

Arabian nights? Like you could decorate with draped silk scarves. When I was in Mexico the resort actually had an Arabian theme for one of the buffets and it looked really neat.

Greek? you could have lots of blue and white and cold dips like hummus, tzatziki, melitzanosalata, baba ganoush, etc… and plenty of pita bread, Greek salad…

Have a Scandianavian theme! You can make a smorgasbord, lots of cold options!

What about a taco bar?  If you just have the main part warm (chicken, fish, veggies), everything else could be cold.  I think you can rent those warmer things from caterers. I went to a wedding with a taco bar and it was a huge hit, and quite affordable for the couple.

Meats, cheeses, and olives! Like an Italian or Mediterranean theme, or else meats and cheeses from all over the world. (By meats, I mean cold meats, like prosciutto and salami.) I’ve even seen a wedding cake that was made out of cheese:

How about high-end sandwich bar?  Lots of different cold cuts and cheeses, maybe  tuna salad or chicken salad, tons of toppings and condiments, fancy breads. Chips and salsa and dips.  Fruit platter.

Do your or your FI’s nationalities inspire you? I love the idea of the dessert bar- can’t get enough dessert! It might be one of the most inexpensive options.  Lovev the wedding cake pic made of cheese @Mrs. Wallaby  posted, but wow that would be expensive!!
