I’m not talking a cutesy over all theme, I talking themed food. Like serving all Mexican or maybe all seafoood or even all your momma’s home cookin favorites. Thoughts? Good or Bad? Ugly or Cool?
If you did one or are doing one what did/are you serving? How did people react?

i think its great. Somewhere in my blog stalking days I saw a couple that did mini bar food. mini burgers, mini nachos, mini hot dogs, single serving frnech fries, etc. It was awesome. Since you’re in Memphis why not do a food theme like "southern favorites".

I also think it’s a great idea! We’re still working on our catering situation, but I think we’re going to have an all-out BBQ — we have some wonderful restaurants in the area who cater this kind of food and I think it will set the tone for our casual outdoor reception.
I also *love* the idea of having Mexican meal…yum yum!

Memphis is home to such great foods and the infamous Rendevous. You could do a play up of all things home to memphis – I know ribs would be messy, but what about mini-pulled pork sandwiches, fries in cones, etc. Or for a southern menu (one of my friends had this and it was fabulous) go all out with Fried Chicken, Mac & Cheese, Shrimp & Grits, cornbread, collards, etc??

We’re getting married in Texas at the State History Museum and are serving Texas style BBQ. I was a little nervous about it being too informal, but our caterer is dressing it up a little. So far we’ve had only positive reactions. Here’s hoping it goes over well at the actual reception!

I had toyed with the idea of a southern foods/bbq theme. Serve BBQ chicken, ribs and then through in some awesome BBQ shrimp along with mac and cheese but dress it all up. I was so glad to hear that my idea wasn’t awful!

I went to a wedding where it was carnival food theme and all the guests LOVED it! There were mini shrimp corndogs, take out containers with sweet and sour chicken, mini sliders, cotton candy and fried dough…yes fried dough at a wedding, I was in LOVE.

BBQ shrimp – yum!! Sounds to me like you need to trust your instincts!! I’m getting hungry just reading these posts!

I think that’s a perfectly fine thing to do with your wedding food, but I’d be sure to have some slightly more neutral dishes on the menu for people who might be either sensitive to or simply not fond of the food you use. There are lots and lots of fusion restaurants and caterers out there now that can give traditional food an ethnic twist, and vice versa.

We had a traditional New England Clam Bake.
-corn on the cob
And we had friends who did a down home BBQ.
Both were awesome!

We’re going with a Mexican food theme, because my FI’s whole family is Hispanic. We’re even hiring a mariachi group to play during dinner. I think both sides of our family will really enjoy it.
