I have some good ones for you... bacon wrapped water chestnuts (yummo!); Bruchetta (I'll pm you the recipe... couldn't be easier and it's a cold item); cheesy bacon wraps (also easy and good... can be frozen before baking and put in the oven before you are ready to serve); Cheese and sausage tray?

 We had finger sandwiches, veggies and fruit trays and I can't remember what else!  LOL  Meatballs, pinwheels, cheese trays are a bit hit at our office functions.

The cheapest way to feed a large group is pasta.  Do a few trays of baked ziti, get some salad and bread sticks.  Its super easy, so much cheaper and everyone will feel like they got a real meal.  When I plan weddings on the cheap, that's always what I recommend to my brides.

the problem with us having a sit down dinner is we are planning on not everyone sitting down at the same time. we are going to have fewer tables and chairs than people. everyone keeps assuring me this will be okay because not everyone will be sitting at the same time.

I would come up with an easy, small menu and ask for help from anyone willing.

Somethings will require a bit more effort but the cost will be low. I don't think I can even help with the fancy/cheap/easy = )

what is your budget for food and how many people will be attending?

probably somewhere around 300 dollars. and probably 50 adults and a handful of kids at reception

You want fancy? Here is something that wouldn't really be that expensive, but LOOK like it cost a thousand bucks...

 

you could probably have someone do a smaller one for about $100 since it's just blocks of ice. the shimp you can get at a bulk food store like sams. I wouldn't do the blocks on the side with the coctail sauce... just fancy bowls to match your theme. Depending on how much shrimp you would need for the number of guests attending, you could probably pull this off for about $300 and it would be totally worth it.
