planning a wedding for 200 guests
Please consider adding to the menu, you need an appetizer plan and here is why:
A self-catered buffet is a real challenge to the organizers, and things don't always come together as smoothly as hoped. By planning and setting up an appetizer area or "nibble table" which is ready when the guests begin to arrive, the cooks and servers have time to complete the arrangement of the dinner buffet. This is especially critical if there are children among the guests, or there is a wait before dinner, as at a wedding reception.
This does not have to be complicated. Three items, plus a punch, or two if one is alcoholic, are sufficient. Typically, include a fruit tray, a cheese tray and an attractive dip or spread; or you can go with a dinner theme such as TexMex with chips, salsas, Texas caviar and guacamole; Italian with bruschetta or antipasto; maybe shrimps or other cold seafood, if budget permits.
One appetizer service area is needed for each 100 guests.
Now on to your dinner menu:
fried chicken, 1 piece per person
Consider adding a fruit trim such as a spiced peach or apple ring for each person, for color and flavor.
If this is a paid gig or saves you time, trouble, or money, please make a donation, maybe a dime or quarter per guest, to support this site. Thanks.
