Get the bridesmaids and groomsmans dates to do it 🙂  Most of the time they are kind of helping with things anyways since they are standing with the wedding party. Ask them too. I bet they would be willing to rush there and take care of it before your guests arrive.

With the cost savings of not having a catered reception, can you afford to hire someone to help with that?  I had hors dourves from a grocery store and needed someone to set them out, replenish trays, keep things tidy, etc.  I couldn’t ask my friends because I wanted them to hire the reception.  So, I went the “friend of a friend” route and hired three recent college grads.  One was my friend’s cousin and she brought her Fiance and also a friend.  I paid them each $75.  It didn’t break my budget and they were thankful to have extra $$$ in their pockets.

What about outdoor games like croquet, horseshoes, or cornhole for the guests to play during the in between time?

I was going to say croquet too.  Frisbee golf?  I would make sure that you had enough to eat.  You can always ask your aunt or other family to make potatoe salad ect.  Bc i went to a cocktail reception which was fabulous except I was soooo hungry.  Not enough food but plenty of wine so I didnt mind as much.  The cake was really good too.
