Hi all –
My Fiance and I have been trying to have fun wedding food, not the bland old boiled chicken, etc., at our wedding. We are also trying to stick to a budget of $5k for about 120-150 people. I have had a menu presented to me for under $5k but I am not sure.
What was THE BEST AND MOST INTERESTING food you had at a wedding? We want to make this fun for our guests!

sliders for cocktail hour
potato bar – white potatoes and sweet potatoes. Baked and mashed with every topping you can imagine.
pasta bar – several kinds of pasta. Again with all kinds of sauces and toppings. Meat sauce, grilled chicken, shrimp, alfredo sauce, red sauce and blocks of cheese you could shave to put on top.
Now I’m hungry

We had some delicious Pakistani food at a Pakistani wedding recently. If you’re looking for unique, tasty, economical food, perhaps you could do a food truck.

Honestly, the food we served at our own wedding has been my favorite of all time. We started with a caipirinha, which is a Brazilian cocktail that is supposed to awaken your taste buds and appetite. Then we had a full tapas bar with an assortment of finger foods and salads (vegetarian, seafood, and meats). On everyone’s tables we had a variety of pestos/bruschetta/EVOO for fresh bread. Then we had a pasta bar. Then we had gaucho-style meats on giant swords. Our guests LOVED it. It was really fun too!

Um, can we be bias and choose the food at our own wedding? It wasn’t meant to be so ‘fancy’, but the chef apparently spoke to my groom just before the wedding to ask him if he would like an upgraded menu choice to more ‘exquisite fine dining’. Husband said yes. I was a bit shocked by the choices I was presented with when we got to the dining table, as I am not a fine dining girl. Well – it was amazing and now I am a fine dining girl. =)
We only had 5 guests so that’s why we could afford to treat them like this.

We are doing a brunch (which is my favorite meal anyway!) and it’s some of my favorite food and super yummy! We are doing custom brunch drinks too. I designed the menis as a sample but cropped the names so they don’t look as cute on the attachment

I’ve recently been to the beautiful wedding of my FI’s cousin, and they had a-ma-zing food!! The best was the scallops, they literally melted in the mouth… too tasty for words!! I heard the wedding cost approx 400$ per person so…

Thanksgiving dinner food! Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, etc…and it was good food, not typical meh wedding food!
Also had poutine for one late night snack, and there was a French fry truck at another wedding I went to, also for the late night snack.

The best food I had was catered from a local pizzeria at a informal picnic/park wedding. No waiting for the food, it was hot, there was plenty of it… and garlic cheese bread! Yum!

I went to a wedding where they had a Mexican theme and a Mexican restaurant catered. I’m probably biased because Mexican is my favourite, but it was hands down the best wedding food I’ve ever had!
