We have picked our caterer, which he and I both love. Our tasting was out of this world!! I was in the service industry for many years and worked with amazing food and know the quality when seen/taste/eaten. I was impressed…anywho…my fiance has said that “3 entree’s are just way to much” (for about 150 people (may be a little bit higher) We L-O-V-E food…(as my size 16 wedding dress won’t lie…I am sure…)lol. Anywho…my question is…How important is food at your wedding? I mean I plan on actually eating my meal and then socializing with my guests(this may be because I am paying for it…but mostly because I freakin’ love to eat). Also…we plan on having 3 appetizers as well during cocktail hour. Is this just way too much freakin food?
-caprese appetizers (tomato/fresh basi/whole milk mozz)
-tiny burgers (for the backyard “theme”)
-tequila shrimp shooters
-Salmon w/summer salsa
-Bourbon glazed chicken
ALL BUFFET style
Let me know your thoughts!

i don’t have expertise with buffets, but even if it is a bit much, it sounds like the food is incredibly important to you (i feel you on this one), so why not? your guests are going to feel spoiled!
i guess it also depends on what kind of sides if any will be available?

-“starter” salad (pre-plated)
-grilled veggies & roasted sweet potatos…
Now that I am looking…I feel like “whoa!” But “he” is the one that is basically “planning” the wedding…if he “gets” everything else…I feel as though the food should be “my thing” —-> that sounds selfish. I am just the “anti planning bride” I believe that this should be my splurge.

I think it sounds great. With a buffet, the more variety the better. 🙂

Presumably the three entrees are to give guests a choice, not because you think they’ll each eat three entrees, right? In which case, it’s not any more food, just more variety!
If you were going to make any changes though, I’d suggest having a vegetarian entree in case any of your guests do not eat meat.

I think it also depends on the number of sides you are going to have. I like the idea of three entrees but if you only do two then maybe add another veggie.
