My fiancee and I are organizing our wedding for Next September. We're trying to keep it affordable, but a guest list of 160 makes it challenging.
We figured a picnic-style reception would keep it manageable and we're thinking of cutting catering costs by maybe organizing from scrumptious take-out from local eateries and cooking up at least some of the stuff ourselves. Or, rather, using the help of talented and eager volunteers. Any suggestions for tasty, unique big batch dishes that can be prepared easily the day of or hold overnight?
