    costco has some nice veggie trays and fruit trays that are really good.  check your local grocery stores too.  some will do up other platters for you much cheaper than caterers will.

    @jwdesiree:  We did Costco apps too.  We just had crackers, cheese (a few different fancy kinds), salami / sliced meat, nuts, chips, veggies, dip, hummus, and fruit.  Nice and light and affordable, and people thought it was great.

    I cook chicken a lot at home, so when going out or going to an event I would not pick chicken for myself, so I picked brisket and pork.  However, I know some people only eat chicken, so if you want the chicken I would pick pork as the other meat.

    @jwdesiree:  As a vegetarian, I’d be stoked for delicious mac and cheese and mashed potatoes as my meal.  🙂

    YUM! I had a BBQ buffet at my wedding and it was perfect! We had brisket and chicken, with green beans, potatoes, and beans. We did not have a single vegetarian so I didn’t have to worry about those restrictions.

    Our cocktail hour was a “wine and cheese” hour. We had cheese trays with crackers, grapes, and olives. Big hit, as well.

    @jwdesiree:  I don’t eat beef or pork – so I would be happy with a chicken option

    As for mac and cheese vs. potatoes – I would choose potatoes because I can’t eat gluten.

    I would serve a salad no matter what.

    I am that guest that has to fill out lots of dietary restrictions, so just giving you a ‘picky’ persons opinion 🙂

    Oh, and a tip for the costco aquired apps: we bought clear plastic serving trays from the dollar store to transfer the food over onto. It gave it a nicer look (instead of black plastic trays from costco) with minimal effort and cost. 😉

    I chose pork and brisket. I would have chosen pork and pulled chicken but I think they would be too similar. I also chose mac and cheese because its a great bbq side and I think you should always serve a salad.

    Also- id check with the caterers about your sides. Just becuase they dont have visible meat, doesn’t mean there is no chicken stock, etc used. You don’t want your vegetarian guests to be completely out of luck!

    Most BBQ places offer like a Gardenburger or some sort of veggie burger, as some one who does not eat meat, it is very much appreciated to have a veggie option.
