Seriously a potluck wedding reception??? Worse yet is telling your guests what to bring. You have to be kidding me ! ! ! |
I can see potlucks at work or church or even funeral dinners but not a wedding. If you don't have the money just cake and punch will do. If you really want to cut expenses elope and have a reception at a later date.
I am sure others will have better comments than mine.
: I plan on catering a pot luck type dinner at
: my reception. I have decided on making
: chicken marsala on a wild rice bed with
: veggies and a nice crisp side salad. But I
: was also thinking of a meatloaf dinner
: entree as well, for a choice. I want to hire
: servers because when it comes to potluck
: dinners at my church, by the time the kids
: get through the line, the food is gone by
: the half way point. My question is how do I
: ask for specific foods to be prepared? Do I
: give them a recipe to follow so it comes out
: the way I am expecting or do I allow the
: preparers to make it their way? Also, should
: I have other desserts available or would the
: cake be sufficient? We are not serving
: alcohol at the reception, so how do I serve
: beverages without being to tight on amounts?
: I think individual soda cans would be way
: too expensive, even liter bottles. Should I
: have pitchers of sparkling punch on the
: tables? I want it to look nice, but not be
: too expensive. I am a mess at this sort of
: thing. Any help?
