im now wondering if there will be too much food at my wedding after changing from thee venue where i worried my guests would be starving
one hour cocktail hour – 7 hot appetisers (you can choose up to ten for same price so i went with 7) including chicken, fish, beef and vegetarian options
3 course meal – soup, steak mashed potato and veg, chocolate cake
midnight snack – chilaquiles and soup
thing is..midnight snack is free, i dont want to lose the cake, have to have 3 course meal
the portions are kind of big too. i just imagine my guests absolutely stuffed and not wanting to dance. suppose its better than starving guests
eugh im overthinking this. tell me everything will be fine!!

Seems fine to me. Especially there’s no pasta, soup isn’t really THAT filling, and the appetizers is really as much as they want to stuff themselves, but probably not that much.
My wedding as apps, 4 courses (pasta, salad, combo entre, dessert), wedding cake and latenight seefood/sweets buffet.
Remember by the midnight snack, guests will have been dancing and what not and will work up an appetite, if not, then they just wont eat 🙂

There’s no such thing as too much food. I’ve been to weddings where I’ve been stuffed, I still dance.

Doesn’t seem like too much to me.

@newname_99: doesn’t sound like too much, sounds just right! i especially think the midnight snack is a cute idea.

You should go with the 10 instead of 7! If I’m drinking I need a lot of food to slow down my alcohol LOL I think it looks good!

@newname_99: I think it’s the right amount of food. It’s safer to have MORE food than LESS. There have been a few weddings where I’ve been to where I’ve left starving 🙁
You’re choice of appetisers are really good – they cater to a range of people’s taste. E.g I went to a wedding once where they only had really exotic appetisers like emu and crocodile, and my husband refused to eat any of it.

I think it will be fine! I’m sur there will be some big appetites in your group who would go hungry with less food! If people are full, they can skip the free midnight nibbles:)
