Good day from the UK!

Hi All,

Just a quick note to say hello to everyone - I think I may have just found my idea of heaven, a site for people who are enthusiastic about cooking!

I'm actually an Accountant, but stumbled across this place while looking for advice on how to cater for a wedding party (e.g. mine!).

I look forward to talking to you, and if you have any top tips to give an enthusiastic amateur party caterer from Blightly then let me know!

Cheers!

J

Glad you found us! Catering your own wedding is pretty ambitious! Why don't you post your initial ideas, suggestions, etc, in this forum:

http://www.discusscooking.com/forums/f115/ - It's under the 'Today's Menu and Food Talk' general heading.

I've got catering experience, as do several others here, and we'd be glad to help! We'd need to know things like how big a reception is it going to be; what are your food skills; what sort of 'helpers' will you have; your budget.

Be glad to lend a hand!

Well, I eloped a year ago tomorrow, but if we had not done the only thing about the HUGE wedding our parents were planning that was not stressful was the food. My mother and I had great fun planning the amazing buffet we were going to have, and I still plan to have that meal, but now it will be for our fifth wedding anniversary LOL when hopefully I will feel a lot less stressed and I can tell you that I will not be inviting the 500 people that our families were having to our wedding LOL. (In the end we and our two witnesses...the only people at our wedding) met with my parents and had the best restaurant meal of my life and all my husband and I had to worry about was each other, lol.

Welcome to another Brit!

Hello, can I call myself a Brit yet??? I moved to Blighty 4 years ago, and I love it. I went to my first football game and cheered for England, so I guess I'm really English now!!!

I've managed to avoid a trip down the aisle so far, but if we do get there, I hope to cater mine........

You can call yourself English, if you like, Kyles.... but I think you should call yourself Lancastrian! I absolutely HATE the term 'Brits' - that's what the IRA called us from the mainland for many years! I don't even like 'British'!!!
