I'd rather swing on the moon than a star.

I don't think it's been mentioned yet, but something you definitely need to think about when having an at-home wedding: bathrooms.  You certainly don't want to leave your guests without one, but you also gotta remember that home septic systems typically can't handle a whole lot of people all at once. 

Certainly the least glamorous part of planning any event, but still necessary.

I can remember many Thanksgivings where someone got the nasty task of unclogging the toilet because we had 30 people at my aunt's house and her neighbourhood hadn't yet been hooked up to the city sewers.  Yuck.

Port-a-Johns can run to nearly $1k just for one!  We had to price one out for a family picnic a few years ago.

If you do decide to hire a caterer, what about one that will do a buffet style setup? Often they charge less for this because they don't need as much staff. Also, you could look into sort of unique things- depending on where you live, there are companies that specialize in party catering that do things like lobster bakes, pig roasts, or bbq. It wouldn't be fancy, but if you are going for a relaxed atmosphere, I think that could be fun... and tasty!
