Wedding Woes

I'm guessing...

There are going to be a lot of hungry people at this wedding. Let's hope they eat before they leave home.



we are doing potluck... we will be providing bacon wrapped chestnuts a non alcoholic drink and a tray of finger sandwiches. other people will be bringing their favorite bites and a recipe which we will be printing and sending to them in a cookbook with a thankyou note

  • I understand doing things on a budget - but this is stupid.   Just do cake and punch if you can't afford to feed people real food.   THere's no shame in cake and punch.   IMO.

    lol this will go very well.

  • I agree with you. Save the bacon wrapped chestnuts and stick with cake and punch. Who wants bacon wrapped chestnuts anyway?

    So you can exit my brain stage left now, AF.  :)  My first thought was, "What's wrong with a little cake and punch if you can't afford to cater a big shebang?"

    And I had a flash of some of the wedding stories Ww told us.   The woman told a hell of a story.<em>  ::pours one out:: </em>
  • And this is why I hate appetizer receptions. The guessing of how much food is available. Either feed a proper meal or just go cake and punch.

  • they could likely do a pasta dinner for a few hundred dollars as well. 
    pasta + sauce (maybe get crazy and offer red and white, or meat), salad, a few dressing choices, rolls, cake and drinks. 

  • Real food is going to cost less than printing a bunch of cookbooks and sending them. 

    I would love bacon wrapped around anything, but what an odd choice of things to make.
