Have you ever read 2000dollarwedding.com?  I think she did this, maybe you could poke around on the blog and see if you can find the post. Gosh I nkow I’ve seen it somewhere but my mind is drawing a blank.

 I would LOVE to be doing a wedding like this, our families would get so into it but we just don’t have a big enough space.

You could do yse wording like "Potluck Reception to Follow" or"Please bring your favorite dish in lieu of wedding gifts". And then on your web site you could have more info.

I am not sure how to word this but I do think it is important to put this on your invitations as well as your website. Not everyone will look at the website or read it too much. You can also make sure your parents are spreading this via word of mouth too!

I would word it something like this:

Potluck Reception to Follow

Please bring your favorite dish and the recipe too. We’d like to learn to cook your favorite food! 

Kind of cheesey/corny but that’s how my family is! Your reception sounds like fun! We are kind of doing the same thing, my Future Mother-In-Law and her sisters and my SIL are making the food for our wedding.

Yeah I like tessabella’s idea or something like-come share our day and family recipies…something along those lines, making it about sharing in family.

Hi Epsee,

I’m wondering if you had any more ideas about the whole potluck reception idea.  My fiance and I are wanting to do the same thing, and I’m trying to find some helpful tips/advice so we can pull this off successfully!  Thanks!!
