    Everything sounds yummy, but bringing it all together I’m wondering if theres enough options that have substance to them that would justify your tapas substituting a full meal.  I see you have beef and shrimp but what if people don’t eat either? I’d say a chicken dish would be nice to add. Also, maybe a pasta bar? That will fill people up a bit more I think.  I presonally am okay with a heavy hors dourves type of reception but  if I was doing that I would definitely have a carving station and a pasta station.  

    I’ll add im assuming the sliders and hot dogs are for the kids – I’d actually be eating those to full myself up. Just something to think about – maybe you could make sliders or chicken sliders an adult food too?

    Are you having open bar? If so, it’s important to keep people’s stomach’s full!

    I’d be happy there, but if you have anyone who doesn’t eat meat or fish, they might feel a little underfed

    I’m a picky eater and would have a hard time finding much I would eat off of that menu.  I would tend to want to eat a few things only but feel guilty about eating a lot of those particular things.  I would eat better off the kids food than the adults HOWEVER I would love the S’mores bar yum yum!

    What you have sounds very tasty, but I agree with PPs about adding another dish with a little more substance. Perhaps a heavy pasta salad would be a good choice

    i think you should add a fresh and roasted veggie tray or a salad station or something! there are no veggies that are not in dip form on the menu…

    I’m not a big fan of foods served in martini glasses; it’s clumsy for the guests to eat and clumsy to put on a plate and carry. They’re top-heavy so they’re more likely to topple over.  I know they LOOK great, but they are very difficult for the guests and the servers to manage. You may want to re-think the presentation on those.

    I’d also like to see a little more “fresh” on the menu. Not a veggie tray or salad. Something fun with fresh mushrooms, tiny stuffed peppers, gratinee tomatoes, something like that. The menu is very heavy on the heavy foods/comfort foods with no light foods to balance it out. 

    I’d also consider adding a couple more options just to round it out. As it is, it’s a good selection but as you noted, may be a little disjointed. A broader array will carry the international theme to its full potential.  Maybe a grilled chicken satay (which gives you an excuse to have a really fresh Thai-style dipping sauce with cucumbers) and a bruschetta with diced tomatoes or white beans/basil/balsamic and one more choice would bring it all together, plus get that “light and fresh” component that seems to be missing.

    ETA: I see that you’re already considering chicken parm and I’d say, add the chicken but pick a different preparation. Chicken parm is really heavy and if I had a tummy full of fried green tomatoes, chicken parm, and sweet potato casserole, I’d need a nap.

    I honestly wouldn’t eat any of that, sorry.

    ETA- I also think the martini glasses are a bit much. I would like a plate.

    I wavered b/t a 6 and a 7 but voted a 6.  If you had a 6.5 I would give you that. 🙂

    The reason is b/c it just sounds a little above average to me.  If “10” was the best wedding food ever and “5” was average wedding food, then yours would be above average for sure.  Just not absolutely stellar because personally none of them made me say wow that sounds soooo good!  But they definitely all sounded more than ok.  I wouldn’t walk away complaining about the food!

    I agree with some other posters who said a lot of the food is so heavy and that some more veggies should be added to round things out a bit more.
