  • Have a pot luck... My mom and her sisters all made food for a very large crowd at mine and all my cousins!

  • My brother had the same thing. They had it simple, meat and cheese trays with a variety of dinner rolls along with butter and mayo. there were pasta salads and a fruit bowl. Potlucks are great also, just make sure there's enough outlets(in the picnic shelter) for the numerous crockpots and bins of ice for the cold things. Remeber to keep the hot food hot and the cold food cold...don't want people to look back on your special day remembering how they got sick...Not to sound mean, just trying to make sure you keep an open mind......GOOD LUCK!! AND CONGRATS!!

  • Get a tent if there's any chance of rain.

    Find a local caterer and ask for suggestions and menus. What style are you having? Is it formal or informal (how will the wedding party be dressed)? Morning or afternoon ceremony? Any activities at the park or just a beautiful setting?

    It's your wedding but if I had mine at a park, it would be semi formal (short gowns for the bridesmaids) and a buffet lunch or brunch. So, I would be thinking of a few simple appetizers paced by catering staff (maybe a seafood like shrimp or scallops in bacon, mini quiches and mini cheese and fruit kababs) champagne, open bar. For entree a buffet: Carved turkey or a chicken dish like marsalla or lemon and capers and carved beef, a potato and vegetable side, a specialty salad (like greek or ceasar) and tossed salad, some declicious breads. Wine at the tables.

    Wedding cake, of course.
