Hi Bees! I have already signed a contract with my caterer based on the food selections that he gave to me but now the more I look over it I feel like I need to add something like chicken kabobs and pasta salad or something. What do you guys think?? (I will not have any vegetarians at the wedding so this isn’t a concern)
Shrimp and Grits Bar, Mashed Potato Bar, Roast Beef Carving Station with mini rolls and condiments, fresh fruit display, cheese display, spinach and artichoke dip with crostini’s, deviled eggs, and assorted mini quiche. We will also be having wedding cake and a s’mores bar for dessert.
Do I need to add some other options. If so what would you add?

Looks like you already have a lot of carbs so I’d leave out the pasta.
Chicken would probably be good, especially if you’re having kids at the wedding, I don’t see anything in your menu that kids generally love. Is there already a separate kids menu?

Maybe some vegetables to go with the entrees? Cooked carrots or green beans or asparagus or something?

yeah i think adding in a veggie would be good.

I would add another protein (like the chicken kabobs) and a vegetable platter

veggies–potatoes are more of a starch than a veg, and since artichoke/spinach dip usually has cream and cheese it’s also heavy. I’d either add a green salad or some cooked veggies

Your menu sounds delicious, but also quite heavy. Maybe a simple veggie dish?

Yeah, I would go with chicken, that way you have 2 proteins.

Between the grits, potatoes, and bread you have plenty of starches, so skip the pasta salad. As for the chicken skewers, it would be nice (though not necessary) to have that as another protein option.
I do agree with PPs that you need some kind of vegetable to round things out – platter of marinated, grilled veggies, or just a big green salad.

What about veggie kabobs theres fun and delicious.

You need a vegetable.
Also, spinach dip, deviled eggs, and quiche are all pretty rich I would probably change one of those things out for a different choice.

Grilled veggie kabobs are awesome! Can you get something like that? I agree with most others, you need to add a veggie. Is the shrimp a main dish or smaller bits mixed into the grits? Sorry, I’ve never heard of a shrimp and grits bar! If it is not a substantial protein on it’s own I’d add chicken too, but if it is I think shrimp and beef are fine as protein options.

I agree that some sort of fresh vegetables is a good idea! Salad bar/station, crudites or something involving fresh produce.
Offer two or three dressings, variety of chopped veggies and 4 or 5 “toppings” (croutons, mixed seeds/nuts, bacon bits…) and you are set – people can pick and choose and have it as a side or even a main if they want!
