Having a brunch style wedding, here’s what I have so far:
Chicken/Sausage Jambalaya or gumbo
Cheese grits bar with shrimp scampi, sausage creole, chives, bacon as toppings
Chicken & Waffles
Biscuit Bar (Jams, jellies, butters)
Bacon Cheese Ring
Maybe chicken salad
I wanted to add another side, and they have a sweet potato bar (I loveeee sweet potatoes!) but my caterer said that might be too starchy? I didn’t know really if sweet potatoes were considered a starch or veggie. Otherwise I would just do something like mixed veggies or broccoli, but that just sounds so blah. Opinions, suggestions?

I really like the menu and I LOVE sweet potatoes too, so I’d do that, but if possible add a mixed veggie option? I know people who really don’t like sweet potato.

I would definitely add a fresh option! Maybe a cold fruit salad or something green. Or a garden salad?

I would drop the potato salad and chicken salad – these don’t fit a brunch for me. Otherwise it all sounds great! Maybe add bagel and lox station – yum! Unless, lox is not big in your region…?

No such thing. But I think french fries can (and frequently should) be a main course so take my opinion with a grain of salt.
Also no such thing as too much salt.

Can I come? This is the best menu I’ve seen around here! Now Im hungry lol You can add mixed vegetables…but it really is blah. Except some people expect blah and are used to it so take that into consideration. I’d prefer the sweet potato. 😀

Drop the pasta and chicken salad, but the sweet potato bar sounds delicious! I think your menu could use some fresh fruits and veggies. Maybe a fruit salad and a green salad?

I’d replace the pasta salad with the sweet potatoes, and do a green salad or grilled veggies in place of the chicken salad.

As a picky eater I can give you no higher complement than saying I really want to come to your wedding.

Your menu sounds delicious but there is no denying that every single thing on it is a starch. Where are the fresh veggies and fruit? Something light? Something green? Don’t add the sweet potato bar, even if they are delicious. Find something fresh and green to go in the mix. Personally I wouldn’t do pasta salad or chicken salad, at all – too easy to spoil (and I find them both gross, but that’s just me and my mayo issues)

Your menu sounds delish! I would personally swap out the pasta salad for a green salad because I do think it’s a little heavy on starch and light on greens….out of your options, if I were a guest, pasta salad is the thing I’d be least excited about, so that’s why I suggest that.
Do you have vegetarians attending? The sweet potato bar is a great option for non-meat eaters, as a lot of your other options have meat in them too.
Overall though, I’d be excited to be eating this food!

Sounds delicious, but that’s a very, very, very starch heavy menu! How about swapping one of the starches for a green salad & adding some crudités?
It’s also a very sweet menu (the biscuit bar, chicken & waffles, etc), so I think the dessert bar plus cake might be overkill.

I would add a green salad instead of pasta. There are just no veggies on here! And I don’t think you need pasta when there are grits, waffles, biscuits etc etc. so yes it’s too starchy IMO.

I definitely agree with possibly switching something out for the sweet potato bar, if you’re dead set on having it (it sounds sooo good!) and also with adding/taking out something in favor of fresh fruit/veggies.

You had me at the cheese grits station. Yummy!
