A friend of mine recently told me about a wedding reception she’d been to, where instead of the usual yawny, three course, sit-down meal, each table featured a large basket containing crusty bread, pork pies, cheese, butter, potatoes, ham, a selection of mustard, chutney, jam etc and a couple of bottles of wine. What an awesome idea!
Now, my fiance actually really likes this idea and it would tie in perfectly with our rustic wedding theme, as we’re getting married in a very typically British village. But the big question is: will it work out any cheaper than the sit-down option after we’ve had to buy all the ingredients and the baskets?
Luckily, the wedding is still over a year away so I have plenty of time to research, but if you or someone you know have had a picnic wedding reception, do get in touch and let me know how successful it was and whether or not you had to break the bank.
In the meantime, I shall keep browsing pretty picnic photos on Pinterest *sigh*.
