My fiance and I are planning our wedding for later this year. We are having friends and family help prepare a "picnic" lunch for our reception which is in the early afternoon. One of the items we would like to have is a large cheese table with 5+ kinds of artisan cheeses. (Humboldt Fog being the only absolute must have at this point.)
There will be roughly 200 people in attendance at the wedding and we would like the cheese to be a highlight so we will need a fair amount. While we are able to afford our local cheese shops here in OC (Picnics being our favorite) it would be hard to justify the costs they have to markup for the amount we need. Are there any good locations in the OC/LA area to purchase large amounts of cheese that are open to the general public? We would be looking at ordering 5lbs+ of each.
