I had been thinking about self-catering to save money, but that is a huge undertaking and can be very stressful even if your friends and families are awesome (like ours are) and would be willing to help out.
So I like what this couple did. They hired a local caterer for just the main meal portion of the food, and did the smaller stuff like appetizers, sides and salads themselves. They kept it to simple things that could be thrown together quickly the morning of, or could be prepared the day before and stored. Kept the cost of the food way way down, and added in a personal touch to the day.
Plus, huge fan of the chalkboard menu and homey table spread!
