  • Finger foods. Besides the meat, potato salad, mac salad, fresh vegetables, fruit kabobs, baked beans, things you can keep hot or cold easily- so platters of food probably aren't a good idea unless you can set the platters on a chilled tray with ice on it.

  • It would depend on the type of wedding/reception. If you are having an informal gathering of a limited number of people, I would say anything goes. You could somehow tie in the colors/theme of the wedding with the food and atmosphere of the bbq.

    If it is a more formal wedding with the reception immdiately after, it would be a good idea to have a more formal reception to match.

    Just think of the "feel" of your wedding and match the reception.

  • We're having a barbecue reception, too! There will be different grilled meats - filet mignon, chicken, & ribs; steamed little neck clams & shrimp with new potatoes & a white wine/garlic/butter sauce; ratatouille; pesto pasta salad; red potato salad with a dijon mustard dressing; a green salad. We're doing a fruit & cheese platter and a veggie crudite for appetizers.
