fizzy stuff asked:
I see a lot of questions about how to provide dinner for 200 people and I am just wondering, How on earth would you do that?
Unless you are a caterer and have the experience, staff, and proper tools to prepare for 200. I dont see any way that one could do it. Chafing dishes only get you so far. They keep food warm while people are going through the buffet line, but they dont keep the food fresh for hours on end.
Before the reception, the bride will be at the ceremony. Before that, she needs to get in her dress and be ready. Mothers, friends, and family members also, are all getting dressed and getting themselves to the ceremony on time. Who has time to stop and peel potatoes for 200?
A lot of answers suggest pasta. How do you make pasta for 200 people? You need pots of boiling water, and someone to drain the pasta. Do wedding venues even have that many stoves and pots? Or, lets say you make lasagna. How do you have enough ovens to heat it up for 200 people?
Seriously, I dont get it. The logistics just seem impossible. So how are all these brides doing it? How are they providing a hot meal for 200+ guests, and doing all by themselves?
