I def think he should lower the price for drinks, silverware. I think if the food is good then why not!

That sounds good for me, but I think using “proper” dishes and utensils and handling drinks from your own bar is a great idea.  I would think it would lower the cost.  Maybe not a ton, but even a dollar per person is a good savings.

you need to factor in that if you do bring in your own utensils, who is going to collect them and wash etc? 

I think its a great idea for a bbq! i love em adn it would be a nice relaxed feel too! i wish i had have had a more relaxed reception!! i hope it turns out wonderfully for you!!

Sounds great! I went to wedding with similar food before. All of the decor and plating was still very formal, so honestly I didn’t even think twice that I was eating BBQ.

Yes it will work even if you go and get fancier disposable cutlery and plates like we did

I def. think it could be great by using nicer utensils and do your own drinks.. Do not do canned drinks or bottled water at the wedding.. Have soda/sweet tea/lemonade/water/punch (not all of these just a few options) and either have them served or in cute beverage dispensers.

I would love it.  We wanted bbq but the venue we ended up selecting has a vendor list we had to use. 

I’d splurge for options and nice plates etc.  I love laid back and classy!

I think a BBQ sounds like a fun idea, but I’m glad you’re planning on doing drinks and utensils on yor own – I wouldn’t bat an eye at a BBQ wedding (I’d actually be excited because usually weddings have fancy stuffy food I kinda hate!), but paper/plastic plates and utensils, and being allowed one bottled or canned beverage would seem kinda un-weddingish to me. I’d price out how crazy it would be to handle that stuff on your own, and compare that cost to a more typical catering company (possibly even one that can do BBQ) who is also able to provide the dishes and drinks and such.

@Brooklyn55:  What’s wrong with having canned soda?

@PiggehBank:  i think its that it just looks really informal. and if she wants proper china and whatnot its probably not what the OP is going for. i also think drinks would look much nicer in proper glasses than in cans r plastic bottles

@newname_99:  Ah, okay.  I can see that making sense if you’re trying to have a certain look.
