I feel like its not enough. What do you think? Fiance has as only requested a few little details with the whole wedding planning think. He wanted a yellow rose in his corsage and pulled pork and Mac n cheese for dinner. Easy enough! I wanted some sort of potato because I LOVE ALL POTATOES!!!! Our wedding/reception is on a Sunday in a nice barn venue. Dinner will be around 430-5pm…still working on details. This is what we have so far. We had green beans and another app but we did away with them because we had to bring the cost down. Catering is so expensive! I feel like we need a salad or something.
Apps- fruit and cheese display with crackers
spinach artichoke dip with crostini
stuffed mushrooms with sausage, mozzarella and roasted red peppers
Dinner is (gasp!) buffet style
pulled pork sliders
dry rubbed smoked chicken pieces with 2 sauces on the side
Mac N Cheese
Cheddar and Chive mashed potatoes
And just for fun….here is our dessert list which is final. I love my sweets so I’m going big. We already did the tasting with the baker and OHMYGOSH….best desserts ever. And she was so reasonably priced…that’s why I was able to do so much.
white wedding cake
pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting
red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting
lemon raspberry cheesecake
plain cheesecake with fruit topping
mini apple pies
mini pecan pies

I’d probably throw in another veggie or salad so you have something not so heavy in the mix.
Personally, I’d just come for your dessert options 🙂

One more non-starch veggie like green beans and/or a salad and I think you’re good.

I would add a vegetable since you don’t really have one. A nice salad is what I would prefer. Green beans would go nice with that menu as well.

The green beans (or another veggie/salad) should be put back in. Everything else sounds good 🙂

I agree with PP’s – adding a green bean dish would be a good choice! I think your dinner sounds AMAZING!
EDIT: I took a good hard look at your desserts. Honey, you have WAY too many desserts – which, if that’s what you want, then great! I LOVE a dessert buffet. Buuuut… here is my suggestion. Plan on everyone eating 2 pieces of dessert, not including the wedding cake. Most likely, only 2/3 of people will eat the wedding cake.
So you need 240 servings of dessert.
white wedding cake – 80 servings of cake (not included in the 240 servings)
pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting – 40 servings
red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting – 40 servings
lemon raspberry cheesecake – 40 servings
plain cheesecake with fruit topping – CUT THIS
brownies – 40 servings
mini apple pies – 40 servings
mini pecan pies – 40 servings
Now you have a total of 240 servings of dessert, plus wedding cake. That should be plenty. Some people will only have one serving of dessert, some people will have three.
The only thing I would possible get MORE of is the brownies. Chocolate is generally quite popular.
