I am getting married in June and planning on making the food ourselves. It will be a pretty casual wedding, possibly outside (don't even get me started about not knowing the location now, 3 months before the wedding!!). The wedding will be at 7 pm, so reception around 7:30-8. I am thinking either we skip dinner and do hor d'ouerves(sp?) (fruit tray, cheese & crackers, maybe some meatballs, veggies & dip, etc.) or we do a dinner but not offer a ton of options (baked ziti, salad & garlic bread, maybe?) Most people like baked ziti right? Or would it be better to have more options? Or should we just skip dinner since it will be so late? There are no concerns about vegetarians or major allergies, I'm pretty sure.
Have the dinner and you don't have to go out out on sides and appetizers but have some. I would really check into a hall or a caterer for outside because for what you pay to do it yourself is probably about the same or less depending on your wants and needs.

We did hor d' oeuvres. Our wedding was outside and it was definitely not formal.
Why not do some kabobs? Chicken only. It's cheap, easy to make, and yummy! We had fruit and veggies as well as the kabobs! We had the wedding cake for dessert haha :)
If you do just finger foods/ hor d'oeuvres type food then put that in the invite so people will eat before hand!
I don't expect a big meal at a wedding unless it's on the invite (please choose chicken or fish type things lol). :)
