My “caterers” (my aunts) called my dad last night & said that they don’t want to cater but they will help pay for us to find someone else. A little frustrating since they were all excited to be cooking but now we are off to find a caterer semi last minute. I’m not freaking out but I haven’t thought about food choices because they immediately offered to cook their mexican cuisine.
What do you like at weddings or what are you having? We’re going to have about 250-300 people, the middle of summer, and it is semi-formal. & preferably a buffet. The dinner is going to start at about 7.
Thanks for your help, if I am missing any choices please comment below and let me know whatcha like!

You can really get away with anything. Just make sure you have a lot of choices regardless of the cuisine. We are doing an Italian buffet with 3 main dish choices plus a create your own dish station. I don’t think you can go wrong with whatever you decide.

@futurepilotswife_: I’m probably not much help because I’ll eat pretty much anything as long as it tastes good!
We’re having “butler style” (the caterer’s term) passed hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour and a plated dinner. Our hors d’oeuvres will be Asian (we met in China, so it’s a little nod to the beginning of our relationship), and our dinner will be Italian.
I’m excited to offer some variety with the food, and our caterer is amazing. We really wanted to provide an awesome meal for our guests, so that was one of our top priorities!

@angelinthesnowxo: That is awesome! Sounds like a very tasting evening! My mom is running around today looking to see what caterers we have in the area, food is a huge deal for my family and my FI’s as well, so I don’t want to disappoint! But I will definately eat anything too 😛

I will literally eat anything. This probably doesn’t help, because I am not picky at all. I have never left a crumb on any wedding plate before 🙂
I’m doing a Hawaiian Buffet and am really excited about it!
Italian is probably the safest, since I don’t know anyone who dislikes Italian food.

As long as the food tastes good I am happy.

I voted Asian because anything (Chinese food, Japenese food, Thai food) Asian is my favorite. But I really will eat anything.

The only ‘types’ of food I’m not a huge fan of are Chinese and Thai, though I will still eat them. Otherwise, I love anything else, provided it’s done well.

I will eat almost anything.

My response is a mix of “vegetarian” and “I will eat anything”. I’m use to have very limited options, therefore I will eat anything available to me that is not meat or fish.

I voted Asian because I’ve never actually had it at a wedding – people usually play it safer than that. Well, except for the one I went ot when all the food was vegan but the couple didn’t tell the guests until afterwards (it was actually really delicious), and that other time where the groom cooked up a whole goat for everyone.
We nearly had Asian for ours, but then ended up playing it safe(r) and having some Italian/European foods as well. So we’re doing half Asian, half ‘not Asian”.
I would say that Italian is probably the safest choice. It’s not going to offend anybody, can easiliy be adapted for special dietary needs and can be quite classy if done well.
The only thing to be careful with Italian is not to make it too sloppy or with lots of red sauces (same would apply with Mexican). I’m getting a bit nervous about the “red sauce” issue as I’m planning to make lasagne and eggplant parmigiana for our wedding (the caterers are making the Asian food) and I have to get them to the right consisetency so they won’t be too sloppy to eat and people won’t be getting food on their finery.

I will also eat almost anything. I will say my 2 least favorites are probably BBQ and Mexican and only b/c it is easy to mess them up IMO.

I’ll eat anything, but my least favorite wedding fare is the generic rubber chicken breast in sauce/steamed veggies/rice pilaf. And Mexican food is delicious but it doesn’t always sit well in my stomach, so I may not feel like dancing, etc. afterward.
