it probably depends what kind of dinner you are having….is it plated?  buffet?  casual? formal?  did you want to give them choices for an entree?  any sort of theme?  this caterer hasn’t made any suggestions for you?

My Darling Husband and I did a buffet/"station" dinner. There was a drinks station, a carving station, breads, salad, chicken, wings, and a dessert table. These were dispersed throughout our room so people mingled and walked around and ate. There were tables at different heights put "randomly" throughout so people had places to set drinks/food.  We enjoyed it because we got to talk to everyone and everyone got to talk to everyone else. We had a semi-destination wedding/ family-ish reunion, so we invited everyone who had come in the day before (or who lived in town) to come to the rehearsal dinner so we could chat with everyone. This also made the wedding a little less awkward with the two families because they’d already met and had gotten along.

We’re doing stations and keeping it simple – a fruit/veggie/cheese/grape leaves spread, a beef tenderloin and jumbo shrimp station, and a mashed potato bar. (We don’t have any vegetarians attending.) Our wedding is "upscale garden party" so we’re not worried about it being too formal.

We’re doing an hors d’ouvres (I can never spell that right) buffet. I’m so excited. Mini grilled cheese – yes! People love fun food.
