@eliseemma:  Is the caterer open to any changes to the plated  dinner? Perhaps a chicken breast atop a nice green salad?

@eliseemma:  If the plated chicken dinner includes chicken, potato and veggies, could you not ask to substutute salad for the potato and veggies?

It’s still a plated meal- just not so heavy for lunch.

@eliseemma:  Chicken is the only option? Do you not have any veggie friends?

I’d find it a bit odd to eat chicken at noon. A buffett is nice cause it has more options, and i’m surprised you say it’s more expensive? Usually plated is always more than buffet.

@eliseemma:  DH’s friends had very over the top 1st birthdays for their sons and they had a lunch menu at a hotel very similar to a wedding. Except no appetizers (not sure how hungry your guests will be). It was fine! Not too heavy (they had chicken or salmon). I doubt your guests will be objecting to a nice meal, especially if they will be drinking too

I think it sounds great! I like to eat heavier earlier in the day and less at night–better for digestion! I would also love brunch though. Maybe a good plan would be to start apps at 11:30 or so and hold off on lunch until 12:30?

@eliseemma:  oh that sounds great! As long as you give a bit of time between I think that’s good. Why is it weird to eat chicken at noon? Don’t people ever eat lunch?! Haha

@eliseemma:  Sounds great!  And we’ve got an early wedding too — our brunch actually starts an hour before your lunch 🙂
