Cheap Reception Menu

Receptions are statistically speaking the most expensive part of your wedding celebration. Between the food, wine, chairs, favors, dinnerware, decoration and everything else, you could spend a few thousand dollars more than you planned for. You could save a little cash by keeping the menu simple. Have 1 or 2 meats, rolls, 2 vegetables, fruit salad and a drink. You can go so far as to cut out the wine and serve sparkling grape juice if you like. It is up to you. Here are a few reception dinner menu samples.

Island Reception

  • Tropical Rotisserie Chicken
  • Black Bean Mango Salsa
  • Yellow rice
  • Rolls
  • Salad
  • Mixed fruit salad

Taste of Italy

  • Rosemary, garlic herb chicken
  • Fettuccine in alfredo sauce
  • Bread sticks
  • Caesar salad

Down Home

  • Honey Ham
  • Yellow rice
  • Yams
  • String Beans
  • Black Eye Peas
  • Corn Bread
  • Garden Salad
  • Mixed Fruit

Yeah… I know it is super simple, but it is nice and super cheap. If someone doesn’t like it, there is always McD’s and friends.
