@fvsoccer:  Selection looks good.  A decent amount of vegetarian entrees, which is considerate.

My only concern is your timing and # of pieces available per person.

Sounds yummy! My only concern would be to add a chicken option. I don’t eat lamb or pork so I guess I’d be sticking to the non meat apps (which all sound amazing)

@fvsoccer: Are you having it over a meal time?  I would definitely be hungry with only 4 pieces.  It’s really just 1.5 pieces per hour.  I would definitely want to eat more then one mini quiche or scallop in an hour.

If you had 12 (2 of each of the last 6) pieces and were stuffed, you are only offering your guests 25% of that amount in a presumably longer time frame then your tasting.   

We are also not having a full meal, but are having ceremony at 7:30 pm, an hour long cocktail hour and then stations with more substantial food.  Our cocktail hour (starting at 8pm) allocates for 5 pieces per person, which is then followed by stations (risotto, and mini-entre station) for another 2-3 hours.  So I guess I just can’t imagine having 4 pieces over 3.5 hours.  It seems very low.

yum! sounds good to me! I second the chicken comment though..I wouldn’t eat lamb or pork either. But then again, if I were at someone’s wedding I’d just find something I would eat. 🙂

I’m not sure that unlimited dips and veggie platters will make up the difference. I would look at upping the selection to allow people to be able to at least try 1 of each hot app. Every time something new goes by people will want to try them.

I think your guests will be full as long as they are aware that it is their actual meal. Some might try and save their appetites.

I would probably take away a dip and add a sweet to accompany the buffet.

I think it sounds great, but I’d let people know that there’s not going to be a plated dinner. Something on the invitation, like “join us after the ceremony for heavy hors d’oeuvres” so, like LuckyJuls said, so they’ll eat and won’t just try a couple thinking they need to save room for a plated dinner. And I think 18-24 would definitely fill me up, maybe even more than a plate.

ETA: Sigh. WB ate half my post.

if it’s during dinner time, just make sure you include it in your invites.   some weddings i’ve gone to had heavy apps and then full meal so i usually save room for dinner.  18-24 pieces will definitely get me full and i won’t even miss a full meal.  i enjoy apps more anyways.  were there any chicken options that was good.  i don’t eat red meat so i am one to look for chicken or duck but i do eat scallops and i make an exception for bacon when it’s wrapped around scallops or a date.

i’m asian so the beef and broc wontons sound disgusting to me but i’m sure you picked it because it tasted good at the tasting.
