Wedding ... food

FOOD - it's a biggie!!
when deciding where to put your money, this is one of them!

We tossed around the idea of a plated dinner but sometimes that can take so long
So we decided to go with the buffet. And here comes another pet peeve...when dinner is announced, have you ever noticed how people get all lined up for dinner and then the line starts wrapping around tables, people have a hard time getting back to their seats and just all kinds of crowding.
So we decided we would have our DJ annouce 2 or 3 tables at a time to get their dinner.
We started with the bride, groom and wedding party.
Next we did parents and grandparents
Then aunts and uncles
then cousins and friends.
This worked out great for us. And we knew guest would be comfortable because they had already had some appetizers at the cocktail party.
And even though we did buffet, we still decided to have menu cards on the table.
A nice way to let your guest know what they will be eating and plus, they just look cute!

For dinner we had.....

Garden Inn Salad
Grilled Chicken Breast served with spiced rum butter and kiwi strawberry salsa
Crab stuffed flounder roulades
seasonal vegetables
roasted red potatoes
chocolate covered strawberries

we printed up our own cards and included cutting them in one of our DIY days.
