Dear The Kitchen,

How can I feed the folks at my wedding reception on a budget? What finger-foods would you reccomend? And for the love of god, can we make it ourselves?

If you’re having ten people to your wedding, sure, make the food yourselves! However, having been through my own wedding, I can tell you that cooking for the 84 people we had was the last thing on my mind. Of course, there are so many different kinds of weddings. Perhaps you’re doing something really casual. Could you make it a potluck? Or, could you handle doing some large platters of sliced vegetables, baguette, and cheeses?

Any readers out there with some experience doing the food for their own wedding?

Best of Luck!
