@MrsFitness:  Everything sounds awesome to me except the subway platters. I think those kind of bring everything down a notch. All your other choices are fairly fancy but if I saw Subway sandwiches it would feel immediately like a picnic to me. 

If you made most of the quiches vegitarian you would be fine. (Assuming you don’t have any vegans, because almost nothing you’re serving is vegan.)

My only question would be about the deviled eggs – to me personally they seem like A LOT of work! But then again you’ve probably taken that into consideration.

I’d leave out the Subway platters and order more of the anti-pasto and cheese platters- if each serves only 8-10 people and you’re getting only 2 or maybe 3, you’re only having enough for a fraction of your guests. If it’s there either for appetizers especially, but even if it’s part of the whole meal.

Are you going to be able to keep your cold items cold? Some of those things (the eggs for example) need to be kept cool to avoid going off.

Otherwise sounds fine – lots of desserts!

@MrsFitness:  

Wow that sounds like a spread! But like @MexiPino:  said, subway platters don’t quite go with the rest of the theme. If you could get mini-wraps instead of subs, maybe that would work better and not break the bank?

@Summer_Rose:  Oooo… those pinwhell wrap sandwhiches! They sell platters at Costco I think. That is a really great alternative!

@MexiPino:  +1 on the pinwheel wraps!

I too am not sure about the subway platters. I totally get the convenience and cost aspects of them, however if you want to go sort of fancy subs probably won’t let that happen. I had found an independant coffee shop in my city that made sandwich platters with things like roasted red pepper and vegetable, avocado and mozzarella and garlic aioli. Maybe you could find something similar where you are?

@MexiPino:  +1 To pinwheel sandwiches over subs!

Or Costco sells HUGE boxes of apps in the frozen section that are super cheap AND super tasty! And a little fancier.

I would ditch the subway platters too – I get the vibe that the wedding is more casual than formal but subway platters don’t say wedding to me when compared to your other food.  I would get some nice sandwiches/wraps/mini baguettes made by a cafe or catering company if I were you.  I also think you are going to have a butt load of bread rolls left over – 300 for 90 people is a lot! Most people would only eat one?  Your sweet selection also seems very expansive!

 

Other than that it all sounds very nice and I know would like to eat a brownie kebab 🙂
