taraelisabeth:  I think the idea of lots of salads on the side is a good one.  I’d consider a green salad as well.  

Also, what about corn muffins/corn bread or some nice rolls?

I’d offer a minimum of 6 different side dishes.

I would say 3-4 sides.  Maybe a pasta or potato salad, fruit salad or other fruit dish, a green salad or green bean salad, and bread.  Basically one from each category, starch/carb, fruit, veggie, bread.

taraelisabeth:  Corn bread, regular rolls, fuit salad, cut up veggies with dip, cheese tray, deli meat ‘pinwheels’, different kinds of pickles, cold noodle salad, caprese salad.  Those are all make ahead and delicious!

VossinatorsButterfly:  I would say anything roasted or fried does not end up as yummy cold as it does warm. But hey, you could always use crockpots to keep it warm?

I would say 3-4 sides as well of different categories (a starch, green salad, less green salad like a succotash maybe), selection of breads, maybe selection of antipasto veggies (pickles, olives, etc), cheeses, veggies with dip and/or hummus.

I kinda considered catering my weddding during a brief moment of overly ambitiousness… then I realized we are way too unorganized to pull it off .  But I did find this site that has some really great recipes scaled for catering for a crowd when I was searching.  There are tons of recipes, and it also has a formula to figure out the amount of food/beverage/desserts/liquor you need to feed a crowd.  There are also experiences of and tips from people who have catered their own weddings and what they would do differently. Lots of info.


This is their example of a cold buffet for 100
