Food? (Hot Springs)

We're doing a semi-formal wedding at Mountain Harbor Resort.  I originally wanted a small, casual wedding but it is turning out to be a little bigger and more formal than I thought I wanted.  (It's all good though.)  ANYWAY, I still want to keep the food casual.  I don't want a full-on, sit-down, whatever encrusted fish truffle......  I'm trying to do that without being redneck.  Any suggestions?

    I don't know the place at all (or the area), but do you have to bring in your own food?  I would just get it catered by a restaurant.  We did this for my rehearsal dinner - had the food delivered (Italian) and they include the sternos and everything was a buffet.  It was perfect and the food was great!

    If you're looking for recommendations, I'm sorry that I can't help you out with that.  GL, though!

    We had a buffet for our wedding.  Our reception was at the Elks Lodge and we had it catered by Special Touch Catering. 

    If you don't want a formal sit down meal, then a buffet is a great option.  You can put anything on it that you want.  I really can't say enough about Joanne at Special Touch.  She knows pretty much everything there is to know about how to do a wedding reception and her food is awesome.

    When is your wedding?  You should contact this catering company out of Helena, AR.  Their name is Janelle Stephen's Catering.  They don't have a website but their e-mail address is [email protected]  Their food is awesome!!!

    Green Herb catering in Hot Springs is great...and if you want BBQ...Smokin in Style is FABULOUS and they cater cheap.  We are using Belle Arti and I'm super pleased, but its a nicer meal which sounds like you are trying to stay away from.

    That is so odd about Special Touch.  Every time I called, JoAnne answered her phone.

    Cafe 1217 in Hot Springs. The food is upscale without being stuffy.
