Outdoor Picnic

After having to change my wedding date from November to June due to an overcontrolling FMIL I am trying to arrange for a reception that suits everyone AND makes me happy. My idea is a picnic in the park. Does anybody have any suggestions on caterers who can do a picnic? Or on non-fried chicken foods suitable for a picnic reception?

    You will have to check your local board for catering ideas, or just google local caterers most have online menus.

    Otherwise are you looking for a casual or more formal feel. There are many things food things you can do. If it were me, no matter what main course you had I would try and encorporate a bunch of fresh fruits and vegetables.
    Lemonades, berry lemonades and limeades. Fresh berry pies and watermelon.

    I googled caterers on Omaha and here are some options: (more chicken, but it could be nice depending on your presentation) They also have a cold buffet, taco buffet and other neat outdoor ideas (This one looks really good. They even have recomendations for venues.

    It really depends on what you like.  Do you want picnic kinds of food, or exciting gourmet food in a picnic atmosphere?  As long as you have a really clear idea what you're looking for, you should be able to find a good fit.  Ask your favorite restaurants if they do catering and if they would cater that sort of event.  You might be surprised by your options.
