Save Money On Your Wedding – Make it a potluck

By Sarah Bissell

Lately many of our brides have been talking about having potluck wedding receptions instead of hiring expensive caterers. They send out invitations with a request that guests bring their favorite dish to share at the reception. What a great way to cut costs and ask your guests to participate in creating a lifetime of memories.

Ask everyone to bring a copy of their recipe. Instead of a guest book have a cookbook!

The cost of a cake, catered food and beverages can add up to thousands of dollars quickly. Many venues such as parks, public gardens and private homes allow you to bring in your own food.

We at Exeter events and tents can help you with all your set up needs for just this type of event. We can help you create a floor plan, design buffet service and beverage stations. We have a vast variety of equipment from chafing dishes, raw bar displays, coffee urns, serving utensils and chilling tables.

A wedding is a celebration of friends and family to gather and share a joyous day. Your guests will likely remember your wedding as a great party with family and friends.
