My mother and I have been arguing over catering options all week, and I figured it was time to call in the Knottie advice!!
- Friday evening event. The ceremony begins around 7:30. Reception dinner begins around 9:00.
- Takes place in the middle of (very cold) winter.
- Needs to be as cost-effective as possible while still being "unique".
I'm debating between doing a full supper (ex. roast beef, bun, salad, choice of potato) or appetizers (mini quiche, sausage rolls, etc.).
I am concerned that the guests won't be in the mood for a large 'supper' style meal if they have already eaten supper. But on the flip side - will they have had enough time to eat a proper supper before coming to the ceremony if they had to work, since the wedding is on a Friday?
Another option is to have sandwiches with deli meat, cheeses, etc. Or there's other things entirely, like tomato soup shots and small wedges of grilled cheese! My FI is from Texas, and is half Mexican, so I was thinking of incorporating Southern or Mexican food choices in the menu as well.
There's so many options.. help!!
