beachbumm105:  I am doing a BBQ buffet with pies for dessert and a fire pit for smores. Some people are against messy meals, some against buffets-  FI and I want a big family reunion style party so it’s perfect for us!

Following for ideas!  Right now I’m considering tacos, or luau-type foods (Samoan/Hawaiian).

Pig roast- LOL. We havent met with our caterer yet, but we are aiming for ‘upscale BBQ bonfire’ wedding. We will probably have chicken or beef as well for people who don’t like pork!

We want to do hamburgers, hotdogs, corn on the cob… Etc. We are doing everything very casual though!

We’re doing Chipotle and Pizza. We eat mexican every date night and met working at a pizza place, so those foods are part of our relationship story I guess. lol Plus, it’s yummy.

We’re in the process of planning our taco bar and ice cream sundae bar. A friend of the family practically begged us to do the cooking since our venue has a huge, professional kitchen to use. So far I’m seeing that while DIYing food will save us money, it’s taking up a lot of time. Some may feel that traditional caterers are worth the expense because they do all the work for you, and I might be more inclined to agree now. Pro is that we get to fully customize everything that is served, con is that we feel bad about having a friend work during our wedding. Every guest we talk to seems really excited about the menu though, so “different” seems like a welcomed trend.

I am getting married Saturday (AHHHHHH!) and we decided to hire a taco and a pizza truck, for several reasons. One, it was WAY more cost effective. Like a 1/3 of the price. Two, we wanted something different than traditional wedding food and we wanted it to be reflective of us, so what better than our favorites? Third, we wanted a more “party” atmosphere, so a more formal meal would not have fit with our intended vision. We worried about it appealing to all the guests, but the trucks come with many extras. The taco truck has 6 types of tacos, rice and beans, green salad and churros and the pizza truck has pizza, salad, gelato and cappucino and expresso, so we figured everybody could find something. In addition, the trucks serve for 3 hours and there is no cap on the amount of servings. People can go up as many times as they want within 3 hours. The taco truck will even be bussing tables and such in the downtime. The only thing I would say is make a solid weather plan and assign someone to bring food to the older or handicapped people. It worked for us, we have no regrets and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
