a) Too exclusive

c) Too expensive
d) All of the above
But we do want to have food and drinks to welcome our guests to Colorado and to our wedding weekend. We have exactly $290 allocated to the occasion at this point. We're thinking of deli sandwich trays, chips, and homemade dessert.
Easier said than done.
The best deal I can find right now is $200 for 40 people. And we're expecting around 100 for the wedding, so maybe 75 for the Friday night gig.
We'll have to keep looking. On the bright side, we have found inexpensive compostable plates and corn starch biodegradable forks. And we've decided to sew cloth napkins for the occasion. Woo-hoo!
