That’s more than most tiny budgets offer. You have more than enough food there.

While you’re in saving mode….. Why are turkey sandwiches being catered?! You could totally save some money there! Sandwiches are something I’d consider simple, leave the fancy, challenging things to caterers. Just a thought! The menu sounds simple and filling though, I’d definitely not leave hungry.

Personally, that doesn’t sound like enough to me. I think I would be hungry still. I think what could help is something more filling, such as another meat, pasta or starch. What about chicken wings, ravioli, or a soup of some form?

I think it depends what time your reception is. If it’s and afternoon one I think it sounds great, as long as guests will be able to go get full meals at regular mealtimes.

sounds like enough food.  is your reception during the day or evening?  the only thing i would be concerned about, if it’s evening, is the lack of hot food.  when i select apps for an evening (meal hour) reception, i try to include many hot apps.  you have a nice mix of veggie, fruit, carby, sweet, chicken and beef. 

let me think of some budget friendly warm apps for you that can be made ahead of time and can easily be kept warm using a chafing dish.  how about:

– bbq pulled pork (build your own with mini buns.  i think costco sells a huge bag of little rolls.)

– quesadillas (either just cheese or cheese and chicken)

– mini tacos or rolled tacos (costco sells them in the refrigerator and freezer sections)

– satay

– queso dip or spinach artichoke dip

– spanish tortilla cubes (this dish is made with just eggs, pototoes, onions, olive oil and a little salt and pepper.  start them off warm but they can be eaten at room temp just like quiche.)

if you decide to add hot app, you can prob cut out the sandwiches and have the caterer provide the hot item and save yourself the trouble of keeping the food warm

I’m a picky eater, so I usually don’t eat anything at receptions…most parties really, haha. So don’t really go by me. But, how many people are invited? and how many of each option are you having? Because I think that might make a difference
