I think you need more food options honestly. But the rest sounds good.

Do you have any veggie options?

I would try and at least add a pasta dish or something if you are planning it over dinner. Your food options aren’t ones that I think of as being universally appealing so while I don’t think you need anything extravagent homemade or storebought pasta in some trays would go a long way. I think you should keep your decor as is if you can do that and afford to add a little more food. If not tone the decor down and add food because if you have a ton of fancy decor and limited food guests may feel jipped. 

ETA: If your reception was at say 3pm your food would be perfect for an inbetween meal time situation

@Jacqui90:  +1

I just don’t think that’s enough food options. I see a lot of finger food snacks but not enough things that I would consider as a meal.

Everything else is good!

@DaringGreatly14:  To me that sounds great. That’s how I kind of picture my wedding to be, around the same amount of guess, casual and fun, but beautiful. Maybe you could do colored linens with simple centerpiece if you’re worried about it. Just make sure you have enough food even if it’s “casual” menu.

I don’t think flowers would generally clash with the theme of a casual garden wedding! Just because it’s casual doesn’t mean that you would have to cheap out on romance. 🙂

Sounds like fun! You do need a more solid option for the vegetarians, though. And when you say 5:00 ceremony, 6:45 reception…are they at the same location? Will there be something for the guests to do in between?

DaringGreatly14:  I think it sounds laid back, and comfortable, yet very classy and fun! I can sort of picture it in my head and those colors sound like they’ll be great. Food choices sound tasty too!

Keep the decor! But I agree that any vegetarian may struggle with that menu. What about a pasta salad?

There is nothing wrong with going light on the food – except, for when you are hosting your event during a meal time. I’m sorry but this just isn’t emough for for dinner time. you have two options 1) serve more food or 2) more your reception to an. Earlier Time, like 2:30 so that guests will not be expecting a large meal.

definately need to tone your visual with the taste and vibe.. Simple but effective table designs would suit and help the flow of the evening..
