When it comes to DIY for your wedding, there are some things you could totally tackle and others that are best left to the pros. Catering your own wedding, for example, is a task far too daunting for a couple to take on themselves. However, if food is woven into your relationship fabric and you really want to share that with your guests, there are stress-free ways to go about it.
Think about food options that can be prepared ahead of time (at least two days) in large batches. The day before your wedding should be reserved for R & R and maybe tending to a couple last-minute details—but not slaving away in the kitchen. You could also pick a food station that's easily assembled, like tacos or trail mix, gather the materials a few days ahead of the wedding and ask an attendant to put it together for the reception. Here are some of our favorite options when it comes to DIY food for your wedding.
