My partner and I are having a low-key wedding, with the reception at our house for approx. 40 guests. We don't want to spend a fortune on catering and have considered M&S food - but I'm concerned that then means a bridesmaid or family member having to put it all out on the morning. Any thoughts, experience or advice most welcome!
How about going with the other guests for a quick drink after your ceremony and ask the bridesmaid, or family member to go on ahead to put the food out, so that you get time to mingle a little with your guests and by the time you are home everything is ready and you can all relax.
