Our wedding is scheduled for November 2nd. We have narrowed it down to two venues that we are trying to get the best deal out of. Because it is a Friday, we are doing an evening ceremony. Sunset will be around 6pm, and my fiance is adamant against doing a First Look, so we will do the ceremony around 5pm to allow for pictures around sunset without it getting dark. (We have discussed the time frame with those involved and it is only 2 couples who are more than willing to take a few hours off work to attend on time).
We are running into catering costs being much higher than we were thinking that they should. I heard of someone doing a "chick fil a" reception, which I thought would be good as we both love chick fil a (no vegetarians are involved). But I am not sure how to do that? My other idea was to go with chick fil a chicken and fruit trays for cocktail hour and then go with panera soup and make a salad and serve with bread for the meal. I'm worried that it is not going to be enough food. Soup and salad are more than enough to fill myself and most of my friends, but I am worried about the males who will be involved. Any ideas of something a little extra we can use to supplement?
