I am doing a destination wedding there too!!!! Smile  what do you think of a  surf and turf type thing? like season some shrimp and put them on skewers and some steaks? I think that would be perfect considering your location.

Sounds fun!

Do you have budget parameters?  Assuming you do . . .



Veggie skewers (so the vegans don’t complain, lol)

one leafy salad

one starch salad (like pasta or potato)

baked beans, chili, gumbo, or another giant pot of something hot

beer and wine

an ice cream cart

Did you want more specific suggestions?  I’m getting hungry.
