For a May wedding, a lot of summer veggies aren’t in season. I would do:

Pasta with red sauce

Meatballs and/or Chicken parm

Pasta alfredo or carbanara

Green Salad

Garlic bread

@mariegerbasi:  We are doing similiar, although I wouldn’t say ours is itailian, per say. We’re catering in fazoli’s which is very cost effective, and there will be TONS of food.

The groom & I and are families are extremely picky eaters. We’re very simply type of people and we’ve never really tried anything fancy. We’re the stay at home & cook type of people. This is the jist of what we’re doing :

Salad :

Cherry Apple Almond Salad

Classic Cesar Salad


Soup :

Basil Tomatoe

Sausage Gumbo

Cheddar Broccoli


Sides :

Breadsticks w/ assorted dips

Meatballs in Marinara

Stuffed Pizza Sticks – Pepperoni

Stuffed PIzza Sticks – Cheese

Toasted Ravioli in Marinara

Roasted Chicken



Entrees :

Twice Baked Lasagna

Baked Ziti

Penne with Creamy Basil Chicken


We will also have a cocktail hour before our buffet dinner.

@mariegerbasi:  Well, they don’t cater per say. But they have party size meals and they drop off & set up if you purchase the burners, works for us!

Ohhh nice choice on the Fazoli’s, everyone LOVES their breadsticks! and I love the idea of serving bruchette and caprese salad, they are both quite light options which I think guests will love to snack on! What are you thinking of doing with the drinks?

@mariegerbasi:  I know right! Originally I was going to go with the Olive Garden, but fazoli’s is pretty awesome and cheaper!

I want an Italian style buffet, but apparently that’s unheard of here in Italy….. ๐Ÿ™‚
