Reception Food Brainstorming Q's!
We're having a beach/backyard wedding next summer. Prob around 100 people, give or take traveling guests & kids. We've always talked about having a reception and wedding that's very fun & laid back. For a few years we've talked about doing some awesome late night snacks & sweets for the food instead of a big dinner. (Every wedding we've been too we haven't been able to remember the food a week or two after, let alone years later. And half the time it's not good enough to eat too much anyway. So to us, not worth the time/cost. FI hates having to sit and wait for everyone to eat! Ha!)
Q is, we're having smores, sweets, cupcakes, etc. Plus beer, sweet tea & sangria with water & coffee too. As for the 'snack' ideas we're not sure about it. Just a simple junk food table with tons of our faves on it and some fruit & veggie trays? Or something a little more fancy like some great mini-pizza, or something similar? Our ceremony is around 7-7:30 depending on weather & sun and a lot of people will be told they can skip that and just come to the party around 8 or 8:30 (veryyy quick ceremony! with a few pics after but not many as we're doing most before.) We're not doing anything too formal. I just need some help and direction with the whole snack idea. There's really 2 different directions, or a combination of both?!
Notes: Our fam & guests will be doing some foodie restaurant hopping in the area since it's a hugely famous area for food! We also eat way earlier here than in the cities. Bridal party & essential helpers will be eating a larger bbq dinner before pics.
