    Not a vegetarian but this menu sounds delicious – I’m a pancake fanatic!

    See, this is good! I love your idea. This is filling and a good way to be budget friendly but not cheap.

    I’m vegetarian. Try to find Field Roast (brand) potato and apple flavored non-meat sausages on sale or at wholesale. They are huge so you could slice them up. Going all day on a couple pancakes and pieces of fruit would leave me feeling terrible and very tipsy.

    Is this like a food truck? I’m wondering if it would be possible to hire more than one food truck so there is a bit of variety? 

    Being honest, I wouldn’t stay until the end if it were just pancakes. I don’t really eat sweet stuff at all, and can usually only handle 2-3 pancakes, which obviously wouldn’t keep me full for very long. I think it’s a great idea, you just maybe need to consider a few more sides. 

    Bagels with a selection if toppings would be fab. You are already thinking of fruit which is a good idea. Cheese platters (might not sound brunchy but when I was in Italy I had cheese and tomato with my bacon and eggs almost every day… so good!). 

    Or you could stick with pancakes at lunch time, then later in the afternoon offer some snacks finger food. 

    I think if I were you I would be finding a way to offer other hot sides like hash browns, bacon, sausages, eggs, mushrooms, etc.

    It sounds good to me!  But I am not vegan.  If you have just one vegan guest I would just reach out to them and ask them what they like to eat, and get them a take out version of that, just for them.

    I’m not going to comment on the menu, but I think it is a bit much to ask your guests to wait an hour and a half for food after the ceremony has ended. Keep in mind that if your ceremony is at noon, your guests will be arriving earlier and will have had to get ready and drive to the venue before that.

    I’ll bet most of us eat lunch normally well before 2 pm.

    I also think it is unrealistic to expect almost anyone to hang around until 7 pm without your serving dinner. Why not just officially end the reception at 5 instead of having it die a slow death as people leave to get dinner?
