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.
What a fabulous idea for a wedding reception that doesn't cost more than your first home! Potluck food for the reception brought in new serving or cooking pieces that are later washed and given to the couple (recipes brought, too!) Now...will my kids go for it? :o)
