We are getting married next August at a beach club on Cape Cod. Our venue is pretty expensive so in order to save money we are having a Saturday lunch reception however, the meal prices are still pretty hefty - there is no difference between lunch and dinner pricing. Since it is lunch time we want to have lighter food, still enough to leave guests full and happy, but not as much as the dinner portion. We are also having an after party at my summer house which will have even more food. Do you have any ideas that might work to serve some lighter food to help cut costs? We were thinking about skipping passed apps and just having two stations for cocktail hour (a cheese and pizza station) but we are still a little unsure of what to do for the meal. Any ideas are much appreciated!
