Self-catering our wedding?

luckycat | Mar 12, 2008 03:26 PM

Hi there -

Yes, I know that this may sound crazy, but I was a chef for several years, just not in NYC. I feel like I can get the food together for 100 people, save money and have good food. Most importantly, have good food and not feel like I am spending a premium for food that I could do myself.

That said - any suggestions are very welcome. I may just be crazy, but we are having 100 people at our backyard in Brooklyn.

All of the food will be done in a cocktail hour style with 4 different barbeques going.

We are especially concerned with waitstaff, hiring a cook for the day to do all of the finishing and maybe some other things I haven't seen yet. I'd like to know about resources in Brooklyn & the area as well.

This isn't a glamorous affair - I'm a school teacher and my fytyre wife works in non-profit. We want to have fun and not go broke.

We're planning this for July of this year. Any ideas?

Thanks!
