Hmm… Are you thinking something on the casual end as well? all I can think if right now is italian food… Always delicious, pretty generally liked, and really different than BBQ. maybe you can find a place that caters italian?

+1 for Italian!  Pasta is almost universally liked, can be mild – think alfredo, and can be done casually.

Fried chicken and the fixin’s always went over well when I lived in the South.  

Also agree that pasta is pretty universally enjoyed, and you could easily pair it with some great breadsticks and salads to round out the meal.

I agree… fried chicken and comfort foods sound delicious.

I was thinking something alot differnt. Like French. Or something light (like soups, gourmet salads, small sandwhichs) or maybe seafood. BBQ is already comfort food. I think it would be too much in a row to have Italian.

I would not do comfort food either – two heavy meals two nights in a row. Do you not want to go to a restaurant for the dinner, but do it at home? Because my suggestion would be to just pick a nice restaurant where there’d be space for everyone to sit together with just a good selection of food, maybe not any one specific ethnicity. I would talk to the bride and groom though – do they have any favorite restaurants that are special to them? Does your family have any cultural background you want to represent? Is there somewhere the bride and groom traveled to that could be represented?

And don’t worry about overshadowing the wedding meal, that’ll be special in its own right because it’s the wedding. They chose casual food, the only way you can go any more casual is Mcdonalds!

Salads: spinach, feta, strawberries, candied walnuts and balsamic vinegar (for example). 

Grilled protein: salmon/chicken

Grilled veggies

Cold starch saald: quinoa salad or tortellini pasta salad

also the soups and sandwhiches seems yummy.


i think italian(which i like btw)depending on what you have are mostly saucey,so will the bbq and i think thats just to much saucey stuff to have 2 days in a row.i know someone like my Fiance would have heart burn bigtime.i would go with something light or different.


you cant really go wrong with a couple choices of different soups and sandwhiches because there will be something that everyone should like

let us know what you go with,im nosey 🙂


(when i think of soups i think of broccoli and chedder ummm im hungry now for some lol)

I like pp suggestion of salad options, salmon, etc.

You could also do a burger bar – casual and cute. I wouldn’t go too fancy to upstage the wedding.
