DIY - As a seasoned do it yourselfer I've gained some skills in the frugal party deparment. Here's some tips and advice on some ways you can do it yourself and save!
|Tastier and Cheaper Than Catering!
DIY wedding food is certainly not for everyone. If you're serving hundreds of people, the logistics are kind of a nightmare. And if you don't know anyone who can cook, you're kind of stuck with paying to have food made for you. In addition, the preparation, cooking, serving, and clean up is a lot of work (which caterers usually take care of).
As long as you're willing to put up with all that, making your own wedding food can be a great choice that will keep you under budget. Especially if you know people who can make really good food!
|Bar and Beverage||
Stocking your own bar be sure you have a bartender as well as in the province of Alberta you will neeed a liquor licence. a good spread would be to serve beer, wine, a couple cocktails, soda, and water. Of course champagne (or, I should say, sparkling wine)to toast right after the ceremony.
Hi balls and Cocktails
Carrying the basics will likey appeal to anyone wanting high balls or cocktails. Vodka, rye and rum are good basics. Many sodas will mix well with these drinks. You can also get orange juice, pineapple juice, clamato juice for additional mixes. Some parties have a signature drink, this is often a fun addition to the cocktails menu. You also may want to concider if you want to offer shots.
|Music||Wedding music is the most important ambiance creator for your celebration. The wedding songs you choose and the music you choose at the reception sets the stage for the entire mood of the day or night, Yes, you can do it yourself when it comes to wedding music and wedding songs.
I still recommend having someone in charge of the stereo though! This can be one of your friends who is familiar with stereos and/or iPods. Pick the person you know who would be thrilled to be the sound guy/girl. This person will be in charge of simple tasks like making sure the stereo is turned down during speeches if you are doing those, and they can cue up any special songs at specific times as needed.
