I think you are fine. You have all the traditional elements and people will not go hungry. Sure, it may be nice to have other elements, but you certainly dont need it. 

As a money saver you may consider skipping the champagne toast and people can toast with whatever they have in their hand.

The only thing I would say is you probably need more of the Oktoberfest

I second skipping the champagne toast, lots of people won’t even drink it

Looking at your menu, I just want to say….”Can I come to your wedding?” JK.

I think you have way more than enough and if anyone isn’t happy with it, they won’t be happy with anything you choose.

I think it sounds great! You offer enough variety to please everyone and it def. sounds like enough food to keep everyone full!

Sounds like plenty to me, and delicious, too.

Here’s another way to approach the champagne toast: Instead of automatically passing out champagne to everyone, you can make it available at the bar just before the toasts. Have your DJ/MC announce something like, “Ladies and gentlemen, the toasts are coming up in a few minutes. Please refresh your drinks, and for those who prefer it, champagne is now available at the bar.”  This way you can buy less champagne, and maybe afford a better champagne for the people who really enjoy it.

I think it looks great. We had about that many options and no one complained that there wasn’t enough. Your menu seems to be about what I’ve seen at a lot of weddings.

I agree with skipping the champange toast. A lot of people got up before ours and missed getting their champagne so we ended up with a lot leftover. No one cared though.

I think it sounds good.  I am not a fan of cash bars at all but aslong as you are offering beer and wine its not that big of a deal to make the liquor cash.  I like the dinner options but if you can afford it I would suggest offering maybe one or two more options durning the cocktail hours.  Cocktail franks would go well with the burger and fry theme and usually aren’t a very expensive item.

Ummmm, seriously, the addition of “Junk Food Mountain” is totally awesome and makes this menu a complete success!  Very cute and yummy idea!!!

How many guests do you have coming?  My friends and a lot of my dads friends are beer drinkers.  We had 150 people and we went through WAY more beer than that.  

I love the idea of a signature drink and think that one fits in perfectly with your wedding but apple cider is kinda something either you like or don’t like.  I personally don’t really like it so I know I would pretty much only be drinking beer or wine.  

If you have to cut something back see if you can cut back the champagne toast (ask to fill the glasses barely half full rather than 3/4 full and no one will notice).  

I think the food menu looks FANTASTIC!  Make sure someone sets aside a plate of appetizers for you guys!
