    I think a plated entree is a little more fitting for a post-ceremony meal, rather than soups and sandwiches, especially if you’ll be sitting down at 6:00. I know you’re trying to keep costs down, but I think you’ll be glad you opted for a nicer meal!

    @Statutory Grape: Well, I definitely don’t think there’s a reason to feel guilty about having more casual fare. 🙂 If you’re happy with it, and it fits your budget…then no worries! I was looking at it more from you and your FI’s point of view. Or rather, from my point of view. 🙂 Food is one thing I don’t like to skimp on. A momentous event is worth a celebratory dinner and for me, soup and sandwiches wouldn’t cut it, so I’m thinking of myself there, not the guests! LOL.

    I agree. I think you should do the plated meal and have something a little nicer! You are celebrating your wedding! Soups and sandwiches seem too everyday.

    If it was a little earlier (3-4) I would go with sandwiches (I think it would be so cool to go to a wedding with great sandwiches and soup!) But.. 6 is  closer to dinner so an entree makes a little more sense. Sandiwches and soup sound really good to me now… grilled cheese here I come.

    I wouldn’t want to have to eat again after going to an evening wedding, so I’d opt for a full dinner meal.

    Perhaps you should move the reception to earlier than 5pm. Folks will expect to be fed at a meal time. We are going an afternoon reception to keep costs down.

    I actually like the soup, salad, sandwich idea. It’s a refreshing change from the “typical” wedding food that’s usually served. I’d love to see a few interesting soups, a couple different salads, and some sandwiches. I think it could be done really well!

    @Statutory Grape:  I meant as in a heavier meal. If you are having it at 5pm, people aren’t going to fill up on sandwiches and salads. That’s what I meant. ^_^
