@lilfellow5: Can you reach out to those friends you want to help beforehand? At least those who will be doing more work.

You could also put something on the invitation like:

“In lieu of gifts we’d love everyone to bring their favorite party appetizer to share.”

Or something like that.

What about

“Potluck reception to follow ceremony at (name location)”

“Please bring your favorite appetizer and/or main dish”

And then put an information card in with your invitations that says “Please contact so and so to let them know what/if you are bringing an appetizer/dish to the reception.” That way you won’t get too many of the same thing.

Are you inviting quite a few guests or just a few? If you are having out of town guests, they may not be able to bring anything, so you will need to keep that in mind to make sure there is enough food.
