    sounds good to me, but tacos can be rather messy (assuming hand held kind) maybe enchiladas and soft tacos that can be eaten with a knife and form while dressed nicely? or taco salad bar?

    I love mexican food, but I agree it is messy. Especially tacos. I honestly find enchillads a lot easier to eat (because they can easily be eaten with a fork- maybe that’s weird of me). 

    I think you could make it classy & have a lot of options. Fresh chips with homemade salsa(s) and guacamole, a nice tossed salad, some enchillads and maybe some kind of mexican pulled beef/pork, and a veggie. Yum.

    This is what we’re doing! Ours is an outdoor, tented reception and it seemed appropriate to go with a more laid-back meal approach.

    Here’s what we’re having:

    Hard shell/soft shell/taco salad bowls
    Shredded Chicken
    Ground Beef
    Shredded Chicken Chimichangas
    Refried Beans
    Spanish Rice
    Queso
    Chips
    Salsa
    Sour Cream
    Cheese
    Lettuce
    Pico de Gallo

    And then we’re going to provide a variety of dessert options besides just cake.  Hopefully everyone will find something they like. If not…at least chips and salsa is better than dry chicken with cold green beans and flavorless rice pilaf! 🙂

    @Birdee106:  I’m actually really pleased with ours. For starters, it’s SUPER CHEAP which is amazing. It’s coming from a restaurant that I like to eat at so I’m pretty confident it will be delicious!

    We make our own salsa every year, so each table is going to have a quart sized jar of homemade salsa as a little personal touch. I think we’re also going to add a bottle of tabasco to the tables too.

    I’m really happy ours offers shredded chicken. I would have liked to do shredded beef as well but I figured that shredded chicken was sufficient. So much better than ground chicken! They also had an option for doing a fajita bar with chicken and steak with the veggies. It wasn’t much more but we really liked the simplicty of a taco bar, and I definitely wanted chimis with queso. 🙂

    I wish there was a Mexican restaurant where I could have a Mexican buffet! Not that I need it. I dream of building my own nachos, and mixing my own salsas…. I would love to go to a wedding like that!
