My fiance and I have decided that we do not want to have the one fancy traditional wedding cake. We are on a limited budget, fancy cakes are expensive, and neither one of us are too concerned about upholding tradition. Our idea then is to have a dessert table with multiple items; something for everyone basically, e.g. cookies, brownies, cupcakes, etc.
Our current idea is to recruit several members of our friends and family to bake something. Disclaimer: we are absolutely not asking any one or few people to take on a huge load. We're simply asking for one person each to make one batch of cupcakes, or a dozen cookies, or something else small, maybe in lieu of a gift or something. We would certainly never place the burden of providing desserts for 150+ people on only a couple of people.
Is this OK? I know if any of my friends ever asked me to do something like this I would do it happily. But that's just me. I'm asking because I honestly just don't know if this would be received well, and if the majority tells me it's a bad idea I won't do it.
