Quick pointer on the fruits and cheese rhyme – It makes me feel like your telling me to NOT eat the fruits and cheese. I love that your mentioning that “there is more food to come” but the “don’t be hasty” would make me feel awkward. Smile

These are so clever!

It’s all just too cutesy, cutesy for me. I think these poems and signs are easily overdone. It will also slow down the progress of the line of guests if they stop to read everything.

I would reverse the first little bit like:

There’s more food to come,
So no need to be hasty!
Don’t fill up too much,
But grab something tasty!

I think that makes more sense and feels less like you’re telling people not to eat at all.

Also, I think you should stick to just one cutesy rhyming sign and then just label the food normally.

Honest opinion? To me this is obnoxiously cutesy. Your guests aren’t 6 year olds and don’t need nursery rhymes to tell them how to eat. It’s great to be excited and enthusiastic about your wedding and have fun with details, but I would suggest channeling this energy in a different direction. Looking back in five or ten years I suspect you will wonder what the heck you were thinking. I’d let the food speak for itself.

And it’s spelled prosciutto I think.

@MeganTacky2247:  Maybe just have a sign saying like “Make your own sandwhich!” so people get that they’re meant to combine the ingredients. I think people will be able to understand that.

If people can’t figure out how to put together a sandwich, they don’t deserve to eat. There, I said it. πŸ˜‰

In all seriousness, I think just labelling anything that’s not immediately obvious (sauces, etc.) should do the trick. I mean, what do people think is going to happen? Your guests will be confronted with buns + meats + condiments, stare at them in bewilderment, and go cry in a corner?
