Budget Friendly Wedding Meals

Alice Briggs

If you want to feed your guests one meal or several, budget may be a concern. Not having a catered sit down meal will also give your guests the option to mix and mingle and save you the hassle of elaborate seating chart planning. You’ll not only save money, you’ll save time and energy with these options:


Celebrate in true Texas style with ribs, sausage, and brisket. Choose the meat and sides that you love and that give your guests options to suit any dietary restrictions they may have.

Breakfast Food for Dinner?

Why not! A waffle or french toast table will offer your guests a unique and elegant option that won’t break the bank.

Potato Bar

Fries, baked, mashed – however you fix them, potatoes are fabulous and you can dress them up with chili, cheese, bacon or other toppings. 

Salad Bar

Have a couple good protein options available, especially if you’re making this an evening meal. Consider local produce when and where available.

Taco Bar

Bring the magic of Taco Tuesday to your big day. Served as individual elements, your guests can choose what they love. Corn shells or flour tortillas, chicken or beef, and all the toppings.

Entrees Delivered

Order bulk entrees from your favorite restaurant or restaurants to serve your guests. The restaurant may even deliver! 

Take Out

Pizza, pasta, or Chinese food may be a great choice for your event. Served on more elegant platters and dishes, these favorites are great out of the box.

Food Trucks

A great option for an outdoor wedding, consider hiring a few food trucks to come and serve your guests. Great fun and limitless options!

Go Ethnic

Reflect your culture and let your guests taste and see that it’s good! Even if it’s not your culture, if you love the cuisine, celebrate and share that with your guests. Many ethnic cuisines will offer a rich experience without a high price tag.
