That is definitely way too much food…unless your wedding is going to be like 10 hours long and people have time to digest before going on to the next meal.

LOL, that is a TON of food!  However, as a ridiculously picky eater, I can assure you that even I would be full (stuffed) from all of that!  The best suggestion I can offer is to jokingly tell your guests before the big day to ‘come hungry’ and see what their policy is regarding leftovers.  If it isn’t buffet style, you might be able to box it up and donate it to a soup kitchen or women’s shelter?  Or at least freeze what you can.  We only had about 8 extra ‘meals’ left from my first wedding, I gave them to my Dad who ate them for lunch everyday Smile

If that’s the plan, it would be silly to cut it down because you’d be wasting money.  I don’t think your guests would think badly about it, in fact they’d probably tell everyone it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to!

I guess it depends on the place.  In our case, our hall packed all the food (including leftover cake and cake topper) and someone grabbed it on the way out.  Everyone was going to my parents after the reception for an after-party, so it didn’t matter who grabbed it as we were all going to the same place.  It was actually pretty cool, because other than the bite DH1 fed me, I didn’t get to eat any cake at the wedding…but they had put all the slices that weren’t served into a giant roasting pan (very messy) so I got to have some later.  We didn’t leave for our honeymoon until Monday (we were married Saturday). 

I imagine if you talk to the hall, you can make arrangements and put someone in charge (IE your mother or MIL) of taking everything home…since some places tell you that you have to have it all out that night.
