I don’t know if this will help at all, but my cousin for her 3 course meal found a mobile BBQ company that came to her venue and set up by the tents. They roasted a whole pig and a bunch of lamb. They also provided all the salads and sides. The Wedding Cake was dessert. I think she paid something like $2000 for all the services. She then spent an additional $1000 on wine and beer (no mixed drinks). There were 85 guests and it worked out great.

Dear Peep, I know this is hard, but I LOLed at “It wasn’t special.”
Im sorry this is starting out so rough, but maybe that means you’ll get the bullshit out of the way early.

@MissBoPeep: Seriously, elope. It’ll save so much stress, money, and it’ll be so special for the two of you, as it should be.
It seems like your family is throwing some wrenches in an otherwise happy occasion, as are potential caterers.

You are not alone! Few weeks after getting engaged, we booked our venue. I had a complete meltdown and just didn’t want anything to do with it. Told my mum I don’t get a fuck and I wanna elope. After all that and break from anything wedding related, I stopped looking online, talking about it to anyone. I feel much better. Just got crazy over whelmed and flipped :/

I gave up really early and said ‘Let’s have a private, five person ceremony and then dinner at a restaurant for family’ and that’s that. Oh and having the ceremony in a public park and buying a dress from a consignment shop.
I’m essentially making all decisions because no one else is really involved, but I know this wouldn’t work for most people. I don’t particularly like my family.
