Picnic Style Wedding Reception Food Ideas

Picnic style wedding receptions - who doesn't love homemade potato salad, buttery hot corn on the cob, beans made even more beautiful with bacon and brown sugar, pulled pork so tender it melts in your mouth? And when you consider a 50 pound bag of russet baking potatoes sells for less than twenty three dollars at your local Sam's Club versus paying $50 per guest for dinner and a side of Potato Parmesan Pave (whatever that is), a picnic wedding is a very budget friendly wedding idea.
