Best of the Web: Self Catering your Wedding

by Melissa on May 24, 2011

We’re planning on self-catering our wedding with the help of some family and friends.  However, information on self-catering a wedding is hard to come by!  Tips for self-catering your wedding are typically general and useless.  Um, really, thanks.  I didn’t know that I “should ensure that I don’t leave food out for too long.” or that I “should enlist the help of friends,” or that I need to figure out how to transport the food.  Like this

No.  Someone tell me how many salt and pepper shakers I should have.  Where can I rent industrial coffee pots?  How much coffee do I need to buy?  How many trash cans do I need?  Who will EMPTY the trash?  I don’t even know what I don’t know so I don’t know what questions I need answered (hmmm, that sounds like a Donald Rumsfeld quote).

So, I went on a big search for information on self-catering a wedding.  This is the best of what I’ve found.  I hope it helps other brides who want to self-cater their wedding.
