Well… we are having a house party and the brides sister suggested we make it a potluck. It is starting later in the evening and is a theme party so I was thinking people might think it seems like a lot of work to cook and dress in theme…
Also, do the party planners usually provide shooters as well? Her sister also suggested a BYOB which I agree with but don’t the hosts usually provide some girly shots or something?
Any advice? 🙂

The potluck sounds cute to me if you’re doing it on a theme (everyone bring cupcakes! everyone bring comfort food! etc.) but I think the hosts should provide the drinks. From my own standpoint as a host, I think being the host means you provide the party for the guests, and that means providing food and drink.
Another idea–make it a themed potluck for drinks, in which everyone brings their favorite wine, champagne, cocktail makings, etc.–and have a taste test. Then have the hosts provide the food. If you’re just doing drinks and appetizers, it’s easy.
