    If its a small gathering you can always cook for the wedding. If you do that I would shop at costco. Chicken is a good across the board food. Fruit too...ummm Rice Pilaf, dinner rolls....I cant think rigth now but if i think of more I'll post again!

    I would decide on a "theme" first. Do you just want to do things like appetizers and finger foods or are you interested in a full meal? If you want finger foods things that are always good are veggies, fruits, cocktail shrimp, meatballs....things along those lines. For a full meal I think starting off with a salad is a good idea. For sides steamed veggies, seasoned potatos, rice, or things along those lines. For a meat I think chicken is probablly the easest to make for a large group of people. I would think of foods you enjoy eating plus foods your family enjoys.

    I would recommend going to GFS (Gordon Food Service).

    We were originally doing sandwiches. Now we are doing chicken and meatballs. You could easily do sloppy joes or something. With a small wedding you have lots of wonderful options!

    Might be nice to do like "stations" buffet style. Carved turkey & Ham, then maybe come pasta then a table of sides and a table of desserts. That way maybe you can do a lot of it ahead of time if you are going to try to do it yourself. I would get my bridesmaid involved in bringing a side if you are gonna try to do food without a catering service

    At our reception we had about 50 people and we just did a lot of "appetizer" type foods... we had meatballs, sausages, cheese and crackers, fruit, chicken salad sandwich bites, pastries, and veggies. It worked out great. All our guests really liked the variety.

    Ask me about Congenital Heart Defects... 1 in 100, it could be your child...

    Ask me about Down Syndrome... more common than you think...

    I'm thinking about a Sunday brunch kind of thing. Probably going to make it buffet as well.
