Noting allergins is a good idea. My one concern is that there may be guests with off the wall allergies to look out for. I say this as someone who is allergic to raspberries, of all things. Seriously. About every wedding I’ve been to in the past few years used raspberries either in or while plating the cake. Ugh. There’s always confusion at cake time. I once chased a server into the kitchen to beg for a slice without the raspberry drizzle. 

Anyway, what I suggest is actually just getting the caterer to give you a list of ALL the ingredients in each dish. That way you can display it on a card by the food and folks with crazy allergies like mine can be assured that they know exactly what is in each dish without pestering you or the staff.

@ArtDecoDC:  While a nice idea I dont think this is necessary. People with allergies, especially different ones, know to ask. And it screams a bit cafeteria to me rather than wedding buffet

I do think since you know there are lots of allergens to list what common allergens are in each would be nice.

@ArtDecoDC:  Some caterers will refuse to provide complete lists of ingredients because their recipies are proprietary. I’ve got quite a few allergies that I know of with my guests and I’m thinking the best I’ll be able to do is mark the dishes with known allergens.
