For our AHR, we're having an hour cocktail reception followed by a buffet.

 

For our buffet, we're having sliced pork with au jus, roast beef with tiny mushrooms, and chicken cutlets. For veggies we're having green beans almondine, broccoli cauliflower and carrot medley, and garlic potatoes. Linguini with alfredo sauce as our pasta. A spring green salad with champagne vinaigrette.

 

Along with our wedding cake, we're having a dessert table.

 

Hope this helps!!

We are planning on doing a either a bbq style dinner....ie: pulled pork, turkey, and beef, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn on cob, and lots of other southern food. Like you we have a lot of people coming to ours...and this is going to be the cheapest route for us. We are getting a pavillion near the lake in our area, to keep with the beachy theme. And have swimming, games, dancing, food, drinks, and cake. Hope this helps!

We're doing a Mexican buffet with fajitas, rice, beans- the works... with a margarita machine and stuff like that... it kinda ties in that we were married in Mexico- what do you think?

we are not having an AHR but I always find that Italian is great and always goes a long way. You can get Chix Marsala, Baked Ziti, Lasagna, cold salads, meatballs, finger foods, etc .

Those all sound like wonderful ideas. My friends parents are going to cook for us, which helps with the budget end of things but I just found out that we can only have the AHR place for 5 hours so now I am thinking I want something that is fast and easy to serve so we can spend more time having fun dancing and drinking!

We were originally thinking about doing just the BBQ-Southern thing, but my Papaw is coming up from Savannah and I thought it would be awesome if he brought some fresh shrimp off the boat and we did a Low Country Boil (shrimp, potatoes, corn on the cob and sausage). You can have some slaw and maybe some salad and it is a yummy and filling meal. A friend of ours had that at their reception and it went over really well. Good luck!

I like the idea of easy and "summery" because we are getting married May 15th and our AHR is Saturday, June 6th!

 

I tell you my AHR is freaking me out more than my actual wedding! Thank god for DW!!!!!
