Not only are we saving the time that it takes to do the whole dinner thing, we're saving some money too. It's a nice perk, but isn't the reason for this decision... more like a mix of the things that made the pro list.
While the details of what we'll serve and how we'll serve it (how much will be passed, and how much will be served) still need to be ironed out, our caterer was an easy choice.

My aunt's best friend is a caterer, and a popular choice for weddings in Muskoka. Vanessa of Vanessa's Kitchen happily accepted our offer to cater our wedding.

Planning the timeline around food was an important thing for us. We've asked our guests to eat a light dinner before attending, but we definitely won't be short on food at the wedding. Immediately following our ceremony, we will have lots of appetizers available much like a cocktail hour. The remainder of the evening the plan is to have waves of food available the entire evening, with an a larger wave around the typical late night snack time.
We're going for a theme of favourite appetizers and things that might represent our heritage, family favourites (my mom has requested bite sized mac and cheese) and just plain yummy options.
