Help! Need 3 in pre made pie shells to help ease the pain of making brunch for 100+

So we wanted to do something nice for friends...hosting a brunch for them after their wedding. What we didn't know was that there will be upwards of 100 people there. I've come to terms with this and I'm starting to get ideas but I can't find what I need. So rather than getting the frozen mini quiches from Costo, Sams whatever, I thought it would be pretty easy to make my own....if only I could find pre-made 3 inch pie shells somewhere. So far all I've found are the graham cracker ones, and the little tart shells. And I did find some 6 inch pie shells at Whole Foods, but those are too big.
Keep in mind, we're doing this on a limited budget (I know, insert snide remark from other readers here) which is why we're not having it catered. Also keep in mind that we have to fly in for the wedding...it's not like we have all the comforts of home to help us out, and we'll only have a day to prep.
So am I out of luck? Maybe cupcake paper will work - like a low carb quiche. Am I better off resorting to the mini frozen ones? I just don't want the brunch to feel like it was catered by the Sams Club freezer section. Or should I stop tearing my hair out, and just make big quiches for people to cut up and serve themselves? They just look so messy once you cut into them.
Thanks for your help!
