Is your caterer ok with this? A lot won’t allow outside food for liability concerns. 

I think if youre doing a full dinner after it should be fine. Add some crackers or bread to the charcuterie though.

I’m not into the “letting people cut their own pieces” aspect of that. I think first of all, it’s unsanitary and a hassle for guest. Plus you’ll get people who cut off massive chunks for themselves or people who don’t eat any at all cause they don’t want to deal with slicing in a line of people. Like I might want the cheese but I don’t want the pressure of everyone watching me slice it! 

If you wanted to do this I would make sure that everything is pre-cut/sliced ahead of time.

Pre slice/cut everything with 120 people it needs to be fast to pick up and walk away with to make room for others and add a fruit and veggie platter too.

Where is your reception? Is the vendor okay with you bringing your own food? You should provide at least 1 serving per guest.
