beachbumm105:  $15 per person, so a little over $1,000 for 70 guests. That total might be less if we decide to do only one meat option instead of two. The total includes the taco bar, ice cream sundaes, snacks, and money for our cook. It does not include soda/booze, tablewares, etc. Oh! and if you go the non-traditional route… We are working through a wedding planning company that is giving us two of their unlicensed staff members for tasks such as dishes, cleaning as the night goes on, keeping food stocked, and simple day-of-coordination for $400 – 8 hours of coverage (which is a steal, IMO). That would be something to check out.

Oh, our caterer is offering a “pasta bar” where guests can choose their pasta and sauce and then the attendant will sauté/heat whatever they chose. I’ve tried it before at a friend’s party once and was a big hit with guests.

beachbumm105:  When we were looking at our original venue (a beautiful campsite) we were going to do a gourmet bbq and s’mores bar!   I was so excited.

Alas, the budget of hiring absolutely everything in was way out of control, it ended up being cheaper for us to look at restaurants.  But I’m still sad about it 🙁

We are doing Mexican buffet! I’d love to do a taco truck but can’t find any online.. it’s hard to communicate in person because we don’t speak spanish. But for the price.. $700 for 100 people. you can’t beat it! 

 

I’d love to do Chipotle!! Mouth is watering!

Well plan changed after I remembered some awesome Brazilian BBQ kebabs I got from a food truck, so right now my idea is to have the kebabs for our meat (steak, and bacon-wrapped chicken) and then still have our Samoan/Hawaiian side items.  I’m excited!

I am doing a buffet style dinner. 3 types of roast meats, 5 salads, roast vegatables, fresh bread rolls, 5 desserts + wedding cake, condiments, gravy, and the cutlery and plates are included and we also are getting them to serve cocktail foods before the reception. plus they are mobile which is fantastic, because we are having a backyard wedding and needed a transportable catering company, they cook it right there on the spot in the back of a food truck! Needless to say, i don’t think there will be a lack of food, and we were told to have plastic containers ready, because there will be left overs!
