Shanda913:  Look into Santoni’s. We didn’t end up going with them, but they do yummy and inexpensive food, including picnic style. Where is your wedding? Before my parents gave us money we were looking into renting a KoC or similar hall and doing picnic-style food from Santoni’s. You could also look into Panera, chipotle, places like that that do catering. You may have to hire a separate bar tender, but it would be cheaper.

No help on Tiffany sorry.

Just because I’ve had some BAD cooked food, i think if i were looking for 20/person in the baltimore area I’d go towards cold foods instead of things you are going to have to keep warm ($$$) which will likely overcook while you are warming them (:()

If I was doing a picnic type of wedding on a small budget I’d seriously, seriously, order from Panera Bread catering and Graul’s Market.  Sure get some hot foods but let there be some cold entrees and there’s nothing wrong with sandwiches and salad.  


eta santonis is actually an awesome suggestion too 🙂

Catering event halls may work with that budget. Places like Martins, La Fontaine Blue, and The Overlea Event Center come to mind. You may also want to consider a community hall like the one in Harpers Choice Village center (in Columbia, MD just south of Baltimore). For a good price you get the hall, tables, and chairs, and you can bring in your own food or inexpensive catering. For an inexpensive, but still tasty, food option you could go with Beefalo Bobs (BBQ), La Palapa (Mexican), or Mamma Lucia (Italian). If you are willing to splurge on a divine cake, Fionas Cakes in Severna Park is worth every penny. Get the chocolate cake and you will be in heaven.
