So I’ve talked to our cater and we have come to an agreement to the food!! We’re having an evening wedding…so tell me what you guys think plzz.
Yellow rice (thought it would be a good switch from eating peas n’ rice so much)
Grouper fingers (a.k.a fish sticks but are really popular in the Bahamas)
Macaroni & cheese
Salads & Sides
Toss salad (along with the dinner)
Coleslaw (along with the dinner)
Whole kernel corn (along with the dinner)
Crab salad (for cocktail hr)
Chicken salad (for cocktail hr)
We don’t have to worry about vegetarians because there aren’t any on our guest list and have the main meats cover so ppl have options.
Along with this will be meatballs and 1-2 more app. for the cocktail hr along with rolls and crackers. Also our cupcake stand and 2-3 more desserts and candy for our “sweets bar” These extras aren’t provided by our cater (the price got a bit to high) but by friends and family. they are charging us $18 per head

To quote FI: “They have mac & cheese on their buffet line. I think their menu is OK.” 😉

Sounds delish! I would expect it to me a generally casual wedding to have this menu, however.

@Miss Wellies: Yes love a good mac & cheese
Thank you guys!! I’ve been wondering about it because I do have picky eaters in my family so sticking close to “basic” dishes was the option the FI & I wanted to go with. We love to eat and also wanted our guest to have a good varity of food. It makes me feel so much better (worried it may seem to close to everyday Sunday dinner and not special enough for the wedding).

@cls9q: Thank you!! It’s totally outdoors (ceremony & reception) and is “dessy casual” I guess I would label it. Not black tie but more formal than a Backyard BBQ. I going for romantic-glam but comfy with a bit of a club/party factor.

@242beauty: I’m not sure what yellow rice is, but it all sounds tasty.
If you do plan on having a printed menu make sure all the typos are corrected, e.g baked chicken, tossed salad.

@julies1949: it’s pretty much rice that’s colored yellow you can add different vegetables to it like green peas or carrots or meat like shrimp. Also thank you for the reminder and on my sample menu I have those typos corrected.

Looks yummy! I thought yellow rice meant saffron rice though, LOL.
