Sanity Saver!

Just when I thought my head was going to pop off... Cater Your Own Wedding arrived in the mail. It had all the lists that I had started and misplaced, including drawings of table lay outs for 50 to 100 people. It broke down the job of organizing a party into neat catagories, each with it's own check list, enabling you to delegate whatever you couldn't handle yourself. The book includes recipes and amounts, number of chairs and tables needed, and things you wouldn't think of until it was too late. And it covers for different styles of parties, from a backyard reception or a fancy sit-down. This book isn't just for weddings, I'll use it again and again for all our large gatherings.

Not just for weddings!

I love this book! It's got great recipes, creative decorating ideas, and most important, a plan that anyone can use to put on a great wedding reception. I especially like the way it encourages you to include friends and family in the preparation and festivities. The wedding reception becomes a meaningful event that loved ones can become involved in instead of a standardized, ho-hum package offered by caterers to thousands of brides. An added plus: the menus and plans aren't just for wedding receptions. I can see using them for holiday parties, church functions, and any time I entertain large groups of people.

Look no further!

If you have been searching in vain for a wedding resource that is truly helpful and practical, you can stop looking! This book covers every aspect of planning a wedding reception that you can imagine. The authors have done the hardest part for you: planned menus, compiled lists of groceries and needed items for different sizes of receptions, designed table set-up and room arrangement plans, etc. Everything is done in a step-by-step manner, so that even if you've never attempted anything of this sort before, you are soon brimming with confidence that you CAN accomplish this challenge. This book is by far the most useful of the many that I have examined and I recommend it without reservation to anyone who wants to have a wonderful reception without the ensuing debt that so often follows. If in doubt, buy it! I can guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Not just for weddings

What a wonderful book. The minute I got it I couldn't put it down. Not only was the book great but Chef Mike was so helpful. He kept in touch with me until the big day to see if I had questions and even remembered to ask after the event how everything went. Now, do you get that from other authors? You can tell he loves what he does and makes you feel so comfortable. The instructions were so easy to follow and the recipes were wonderful. Thanks to Chef Mike my wedding shower was a huge success.

Panicking no more!!

This book is an answered prayer! Everyone (including myself) thought I must be insane to think I could provide my own catering.This book contains all the details you need to coordinate the menus, food preparation, supplies, and decorating yourself. Everything is spelled out in simple, clear steps so that even a complete novice (like me) can do it! I especially like the variety of reception styles and food choices - I plan to mix and match a few of the menu items. I'm so glad I found the book - now I can quit stressing about this aspect of my wedding and move on to something else!Good luck everyone!!! Tina (Wedding Date: 03/10/01)
