I have never heard of a potluck dinner with servers. Potluck dinners are dinners that people bring different dishes of their choice to share. It is not acceptable to ask guests to bring the food of the bride's choice to the wedding. This is very tacky ! You are a bridezilla . Are you really that cheap that you do not want to provide canned pop for the guests?? What is the world coming to ??? Listen, cut down your guest list to a few close family and friends. Buy a cake, and for goodness sakes provide punch. Enjoy. IF the wedding is in July, why not have a barbecue? grill hot dogs and provide a salad, and dessert. IF you have your wedding at a time of day that is not near a "meal time", it would be nice just to have cake and lemonade. YOU cannot choose a menu, and expect the guests to bring your food! And please tell me, how are you going to hire servers to serve a pot luck? Bridezilla, you need to check on your book of manners!! You can have a lovely pot luck wedding dinner. Just please remember it is up to the guests to choose what they bring. It is not a served dinner. And don't forget to put "best wishes only" on the invites!! Make a "kids food table". YOU can make some things for the kids to enjoy!! Good luck with your wedding. And best wishes too |
: 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

: I plan on catering a pot luck type dinner at

: chicken marsala on a wild rice bed with

: 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?
