Joy, i do not understand how you can have an assortment of food at a "pot luck" with food choices.......and have servers!! pot luck is just that. you do not ask people to bring a certain thing. as in "oh, btw, i am getting married, bring potatoes for 100, there is no drinking booze, and your fluid intake is limited, as i am too frugal to even give you each a can of soda." |
how do you "serve" a pot luck?? once again, i must remark about "cheap" brides wanting it all. listen, do what you can afford!! choose a time of day that only requires cake and punch. have a lovely get together after the ceremony. I am certain that you will be putting "best wishes only" on the invites, right?
: 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?
