Any veggies or vegans?

 

and if you’re self catering then do make sure the ‘head chef’ is up to speed on food hygiene, prep, storage and service – the last thing you want is all your guests getting ill after your wedding.

I prefer to have fresh fruit, with every meal. (I’d skip the pies, due to diabetes).

dianesparty :  fab on the h&s!

as for vegetarians if you’ve got some coming then a plant protein would be welcome – hommous dip and veggies or mixed bean salad  – something like that. 

Sounds like a great buffet.

dianesparty :  Your menu sounds fine. I’d pick pie over cake any day. 😊 I was also going to suggest fresh fruit but you’ve got it covered.

Sounds yummy! As a guest, I’d be happy with this!

dianesparty :  Sounds delicious but I’d probably leave the potatoes out of it – offhand I can’t think of anyone who eats potatoes and pasta in the same meal unless it’s some kind of soup.  Everything else (well, potatoes too) looks like a great meal.

What is a “slab pie”?  Cake > pie

Also I would replace the green beans.. they don’t seem “wedding” to me, more like what you’re forced to eat out of a can when you’re little.  Also since you have sandwiches which can be hard to eat, I would change the pulled chicken to grilled chicken with a delicious sauce and prep.

Sounds good.! Maybe some meatballs for those who would like to add to their pasta. 🙂

Your menu made me hungry.

Also, you can’t please everyone. Your menu sounds fine for 95% of people. If they don’t like it, they don’t have to eat it. You have a wide enough spread that there should be something for everyone. If you tried to get a full course meal for literally every food possibility…you’re not going to be able to be at your wedding as you’d be too busy cooking. 

 

Side note – I’d eat pasta and potatoes together in a meal, not in soup. Apparently PP have never been to the Midwest, where we put chicken n noodles on mashed potatoes. LOL
