I voted that it doesn’t sound like it matches your theme… however…
I do agree that good tasting food is better than a matching theme. I also think you could incorporate elements to tie it in. The way you present the food greatly impacts how formal/informal it may be interpreted.

I went to a more formal wedding with a build your own fajita buffet, which I was super excited about… Especially considering I try to eat as little meat as possible so I was going to just eat the peppers and onions… however I guess they tried to save even more money and didn’t have the peppers or onions cooked… It was awful! I think as long as you make sure the food is all cooked then it will be fine.

Do it. I think that buffets are great because people get to pick what they are going to eat. Not to mention that mexican food is delicious.

I say go for it! It seems like most people love Mexican food…if you have a buffet of Mexican items I think that would be fantastic. I agree with what some other people mentioned where if the food tastes fantastic no one will care WHAT you are serving – they will just remember that it was fabulous!

If there’s anythign I’ve learned from Iron Chef and Top Chef, it’s that presentation is important! When I think ‘buffet’, I think rows of chafing dishes. I think your menu sounds delicious and I think you could totally pull it off and make it work with your theme by working with the catering department on how the food is presented. For example:
~ VS. ~
That being said, I personally don’t think there’s anything wrong wtih chafing dishes/buffets, I will probably do that for my wedding. BUT, if you’re trying to go for a more elegant this may be at least an option to consider.
