One of my biggest struggles so far in looking for a venue is that every place came along with a caterer that was forcing too-fancy food that was super expensive and did not sound good to me at all. I would ask if they could make something a bit more simple… they’d say yes and then come through with a still too-expensive too-fancy whatever. Blech.
Welllllllll we signed with a venue today and I LOVE our menu! It is exactly what I wanted. Simple, accessible, and just plain tasty. We’re doing simple cold apps and then two stations for dinner, yay!
Cheese and crackers
Veggies and dip
Fajitas (chicken and beef)
Enchiladas (chicken and veggie)
chips and salsa
Kung pao chicken
lettuce wraps (chicken and tofu)
It is PERFECT! Food we actually like that isn’t at all fancy and that everyone should love. yay! 🙂

I love your wedding food!!!
I would like to have the same menu, but I don’t think it would go very well with our Victorian theme.

@noritake, your theme does not have to extend to the menu, and many do not. Serve whatever your guests will actually eat and enjoy rather than what fits with your decor that they may not have that much interest in, which could potentially lead to wasted money and food.
You could argue that either of those above stations does fit with a Victorian theme, because they do and those foods (or very similar) were eaten at that time.
