Just wondering if everyone thinks my options would make everyone at my wedding happy and easy to find something to eat.
Dinner, we’re having a buffet- broiled cod (southwestern styled seasoning- absolutely delicious!), turkey in gravy, and a carved roast beef. I know we don’t have a chicken option but I didn’t really like any of them when we tasted them. We’re also having two starches (red potatoes and rice pilaf) and two veggies (corn and broccoli.)
Cupcakes! The part of the wedding I’m most excited for b/c I love to bake. I’m not making them but I just love dessert 🙂 I’m thinking- white with strawberry filling/icing, chocolate with fudge filling and peanut butter icing, red velvet with cream cheese icing, and lemon with raspberry filling and almond icing. I’m also trying to estimate the number of each type of cupcake. Expecting about 175-190. I was thinking approx 80 each of white and chocolate and 50 each of red velvet and lemon for 260 total. We aren’t having any other dessert, aside from a small top tier for us to cut.
How does it sound? Any suggestions?

i think it sounds delicious and now im hungry! thanks a lot!
haha but really – those are fabulous choices – everyone always says be sure to have a pasta or chicken dish for anyone who doesnt eat fish pork or red meat but you know your guests best. i personally went with a chicken fish and pork. but if their chicken isnt so yummy i say your choices are fine.

I think your choices sound delicious. And those cupcake options make me so hunnngrrry! I think the 50 for the red velvet and lemon is good, because while I LOVE love love red velvet, not everyone does, so doing more vanilla and chocolate is a good plan.

I love it. I wouldn’y worry about a chicken option. Turkey is enough. I would add a very nice salad in case you have any vegetarians.
I love the cupcake idea. For my friends wedding we are going to do cupcakes as well. I am making Carrot cake cupcakes, Rhubarb cupcakes, Blueberries and cream cupcakes, Boston Creme cupcakes, Raspberry marble cheesecake cupcakes, coconut cupcakes, Banana Pecan cupcakes, Streusel cupcakes, Lavendar iced brownie cupcakes, Cherry cobbler cupcakes, Lemon meringue cupcakes, Death by chocolate cupcakes, Chocolate Peanut Butter cupcakes. I love the white with Strawberry filling. Would you mind sharing your recipe?
My friend is having 250 people and the caterer told her to figure 2-3 cupcakes a piece as she is having no other form of dessert and they will be left out for people to take more throughout the reception. Weddings in her family tend to last 5-6 hours so I plan to make 1000 cupcakes. She is purchasing bakery boxes so any leftovers can be easily gotten rid of.
