This seems great and a good value, but I am not sure where you are geographically. For where I live, it would be great (and I am a city dwelling, gluten free person married to someone who is a mostly vegetarian. We would have plenty to eat).

savannahcrane38:  Food writer here. I think that’s a very low pp cost (but I live in nyc, so my price concept is probably very skewed)! I think it’s a nice variety, and definitely enough food. Well done! I think having a late night snack is a nice idea- nachos for a large group can be hard to pull off-I’d recommend a little “make your own taco bar”. By late night times guests will like that and have fun making their own. Plus then people can add or omit ingredients at will. 🙂

Nice! Is it going to be out all at once, or will you separate the appetizers from the rest?

savannahcrane38:  Sounds like a pretty good value to me. We paid €75 pp (about $100 pp) for a served/plated dinner, similar in complexity (though ours included wine for the tables and some other alcohol). It really depends where you are. 

Sounds delish, though!

that sounds like a great menu. For a late night snack, I think I’d want nachos, but I just love nachos in general

Looks good to me, even as a vegan.  I’d personally pick nachos over pizza just so people can build their own for more variety.  

Can I ask who your caterer is?  I’m in Indianapolis, but it’s always nice to see comparisons!

savannahcrane38:  The price looks great to me, but prices are also very much so regionally determined. Coming from a big city in the northeast, it looks good though.

Your menu looks great! I would eat everything on it.

Question, though. Are you inviting any vegetarians? If so, I would swap out one of your meat apps for a vegetarian friendly one and maybe a fruit and veggie tray or a cheese tray. Otherwise, the only thing vegetarians could eat at cocktail hour would be veggie sushi. Also, I know plenty of meat eaters that don’t like to load up on a ton of meaty apps before dinner, anyway! There are plenty of delicious veg friendly apps that carnivores will enjoy, too!

Otherwise, everything looks great! I think you’ve got a wonderful variety and you’ve selected foods that are generally very likable.

Oh! And for your late night snack I would actually pick the pizza. Nachos can be REALLY messy and with everyone all dressed up, it’s not so fun to have toppings all over the place because they tend to get all over clothes, too!
