My lovely FSIL is not only baking our wedding cake but also catering the wedding as well. Since there won’t be many guests (around 25) she’ll be able to do this and still enjoy the festivities with everyone, not be working the whole time. She’ll have plenty of helpers, including me. She does this for a living so I’ve trusted her judgment all along. We finalized our menu quite a while ago and I’d forgotten everything we decided, so she emailed the list to me yesterday. Sounds yummy to me!
Please let me know what you think or if there are any suggestions for additions:
Sliders: tenderloin, pimento cheese, roasted chicken salad
Olive, pepper, tomato and mozzerella salad
Baked brie with apples and pecans
Spinach artichoke dip with pita chips
Assorted cheeses and crackers
Chocolate covered strawberries
Assorted chocolates and candies, nuts
Champagne punch and pineapple punch
We’re also providing lots of wine and beer because we know what everyone likes. Which is the good thing about a very small guest list. 🙂
My concern is that our wedding is being held in the evening so our menu will serve as dinner, is this enough food for that? Or should we add another meat and/or vegetable dish?

Yummy….my stomach is growling now. I would add one more heavy dish like a pasta or something.

@OtterHalf: Thanks, that’s a great suggestion! And pasta is easy, too. Maybe lasagne … mmm ….

How many sliders are you giving each person? I think you could consider 4 meat sliders/small portions of salmon and a mashed potato bar to be the equivalent of dinner. The rest looks delicious, but it’s not enough for dinner. You could change your event time if adding more food isn’t an option.

Woww I think that’s plenty personally! And sounds delish! 🙂

It looks good for snacks but I agree with OP, add a bigger/heavier dish for a real dinner if you’re in the evening. People will expect a meal if its around dinner time.

@MidwestBride2012: We’re allowing 4 sliders per person (I won’t eat that much but some of the guys will).
We can’t change the time of the ceremony/reception but I think adding another dish two is possible. She’s keeping everything easily within our budget and the wedding cake is a gift.

Add another vegetable. Maybe a veggie lasagna would cover both suggestions? Although I prefer a good ground beef and sausage lasagna. yum!

I think it sounds great! With only 25 people, you know them well enough what they eat… But as for me…. I know very well I can’t have the pineapple punch (allergic to pineapple) and since I am driving (I am invited right?) LOL …. no champagne punch either… so do you have water?

@happyface: Yes, we’ll have a lot of bottled water, too. For me, I’m addicted to bottled water, lol. But, yes, that’s a good point that some people may not like pineapple or be allergic and some may not want to drink alcohol. Almost everyone is spending the night, though.
We’ll also have sweet iced tea, because we’re in the south and that’s just what you do. And coffee!!
@rubybride718: Send me the address. 😉
@beachbride1216: I was thinking about adding a raw veggie and dip tray, because I love a good meat lasagne, too, yum. Veggie lasagne would make me feel something was missing, lol.
I’ll add these things myself because they’re easy and FSIL has enough work to do already.
Thanks for the great suggestions!!!!

I might add a side dish or two– roasted potatoes, fancy macaroni and cheese, grilled veggies, etc. Sounds YUM!

i agree about adding maybe a pasta dish
whats a slider?? (they sounds nice)

@newname_99: A slider is a mini-sandwhich.

That sounds fabulous and is really making me hungry for lunchtime!! I think it seems like plenty of food, although for a meal a good pasta dish or possibly a mashed potato bar with choice of toppings (green onions, bacon, cheese, etc) would be a fun option as well, and cheap!
