Ok ladies I need some input… We’re having a backyard wedding, wanting it to feel like all the parties we usually throw just in nicer clothes haha… So that being said we wanted something a little non-traditional… Does this sound like enough food? Its going to be cocktail party type seating:
Full Service Taco Bar: (4) meats, quesadillas, rice, beans, salad, salsas, chips and guacamole
Reg Bar: Mojito, Margarita and Beer (plus non alc drinks)
AND I DONT WANT CAKE!
I really really want to do donuts and coffee bar after, but certain people are frowning upon it…
What do you think?

I think it sounds great. Not so sure about the donuts but go for it! We had a taco bar at our reception and it was a huge hit!

Maybe consider pies? or some kinda desserts.

@waitingwonderland: Best. Idea. Ever.
@stephlovessaul: Don’t worry about no cake. I say offer some salad so people can make a taco salad if they desire, and let them eat something other than cake for dessert 🙂

What is the time of your wedding? I don’t think you need cake, but if I was missing a meal and being offered tacos instead, I’d be pretty cross, because I would want a proper dinner, with salads, vegetables, and preferably meat or fish.

plenty of food , salad & quesidillas & rice & beans in addition to 4 meats is a TON of food and perfectly acceptable for a meal
but donuts instead of cake would make me sad, I LOVE wedding cake
plus a lot of people see donuts as breakfast food (Even though they are sugary enough to be dessert for sure)

Cupcakes? You can do a margarita flavored one to keep within the theme!

I should have mentioned, that my fiance is in law enforcement and always works night shift, sooo thats where the donuts come from, the wives/fiances/gf meet up for donuts at night 🙂 and since we dont like cake thought it would be a good alternative…
Wedding is from 4-10pm
As for vegetables, we’re having a salad so I don’t see that as being a problem and the beans I made sure were vegetarian
Meat lovers these tacos are a pile of meat with fresh made tortillas you won’t feel like you’re missing out on dinner.
I was just wondering if I should add an appetizer or 2 like cheeses/fruit etc.

I love the taco bar idea!!!!! And its your wedding, if you don’t want cake, don’t do cake. I don’t like cake so we are doing an ice cream bar 🙂

I think the tacos sound great and like you’ve got plenty going on, but then again I could eat Mexcian food everyday of my life and be totally happy 🙂 Also, I think the donut idea is a little funky BUT its your wedding, and after reading your story about you and the other law enforcement wives, I think its sweet and fits! Just find a cute way to display them and get a lot of different kinds! Good luck!
