    Sounds yummy! Just make sure you have lots of food if you’re not having a supper at supper time. We’re doing a heavy app/dessert bar reception, but our wedding isn’t until 6:45pm… and we’re still getting flack about it.

    Is there time after the ceremony people can go get food? That would be a long day without a meal, I’m a snacker so I wouldn’t care, but some people need a proper meal at supper time.

    What are the first two items?  I mean, I can guess about “sausage balls” but all I can think is meatballs…how would they be served?   I have no idea what ham and cream cheese pickles means.

     

    I would add assorted cheeses with crackers.

    Sounds good, but I might add a thing or two for variety.  Maybe something like another sandwich, or bacon wrapped waterchestnuts.   How easy is it for you to do something hot?  Guests love hot food!

    oilfieldhoney:  Ahhh! I thought it was an all night party.

    If it’s just the afternoon, that sounds good! 🙂

    OP, I think you’ll be fine since you said the event would be very casual.

    oilfieldhoney:  I will be honest: I am thinking about your menu as though I were invited.  I’m not.  If that is the kind of food you and your guests like, then you should be fine!  My tastes are different.  I don’t want you to think my opinion matters more than yours and your guests.  

    As far as mixing cheese with fruit, though, that can be difficult because the fruit (grapes, melons, whatever) can get the cheese/crackers kinda soggy.

    oilfieldhoney:  Food writer here. I assume you made this menu to your guests tastes, and as long as there are no allergies to consider, I think you did a very good job. You are providing a lot of options and variety on a smart budget, just make sure you serve enough of each portion. The worst thing at any event is running out of food, especially if you opt for an appetizer cocktail hour. Well done!

    oilfieldhoney:  No problem, food is what I do! You did a great job! Also just be sure to keep your food at the right temperature, especially since you have some things that could go bad in the heat (cheese, chicken salad, etc.). I think it’ll all work out fabulously!

    If you have access to crock potsyou could do some little smokies in a sauce.  Or bite sized meat balls.
