An outdoor reception for a summer wedding is also lots of fun. You could have a picnic, BBQ, or a low country boil in a park or even in your own back yard. Picnic themes are easy too! You could include the traditional picnic foods such as salads, fried chicken, corn on the cob, green beans, rolls, burgers, pulled pork.
From another pinner: THIS BLOG ENTRY IS AMAZING!! Look at the spread in this picture. I gasped out loud when I started reading about their wedding and budget. My finance thinks I'm nuts and that our wedding dreams are in the $30,000 range. But we're going to do it for hopefully less that $5,000.
