Pizza for reception?

I'm having an outdoor ceremony/reception and while I want to maintain classy touches here and there, I also wanted to think of my all-time favorite restaurant in the area and try to use them for catering. Problem is, its Pizzicato!

Thoughts? Have you girls been to weddings with pizza? Thanks!

    I think it can be done in a classy way, but I also think you have to maintain the same level of formality through the wedding.  If you have a $10,000 wedding dress, it might look funny to serve pizza.  If you're wearing a less formal dress with a small or no train, it would probably work better.  Does this make sense?

    I saw a wedding where they brought in a brick oven and cooked pizzas on the spot. They did more fancy, gourmet type pizzas and I thought it was cute. It was also an outdoor, more casual wedding. I think the company that rents out the ovens is out of Seattle. I think if you do it the right way it can be cute, as long as it fits :)

    I would love to eat pizza at a wedding, its my favorite food. Pizzacato is assume. Sides dishes could make it feel more formal just pizza.

    I would just make sure they bring those things that keeps food warm. Cold pizza just isn't the same.

    I would pair it with some nice caesar salad and you could probably pull it off...just make sure it's piping hot like the PPs said!

    Pizzicato has some delicious salads that would go great with the pizza.  Mmmm.  How do I get an invite to this shindig?!  ;-)

    We served pizza at our wedding.  We also had a taco bar :)

    We're serving hotlips pizza and every single person I've talked to has LOVED the idea. Plus it's saving a ton of money. Ours is casual/retro--but I'm so excited for the pizza, it's one of my favorite parts! Plus I love that it's non-traditional. None of my friends/family have done anything like it.

    Thanks all! Haha DramaGeek maybe we'll become great Knot friends, wedding's not till July 2012 ;)

    The fiance doesn't like the idea! I'll just have his mom talk him into it. It's weird because this is the only thing he's had an opinion on...

    My best friend had pizza at their reception! They ordered delivery from an award winning pizza place in Vegas. The wedding was very classy yet it also had a party feel to it so it was appropriate in that case. They saved a lot of money though!

    BABY #2 ON THE WAY!
