wedding menu: tacky or acceptable? ?

Posted by   + Show Post
We're on a tight budget and catering our dinner ourselves. We want to do a buffet and came up with a tentative menu:

Fried Chicken
Fried Shrimp
Homemade Mac n Cheese
Coleslaw
Pasta salad
Jello pretzel salad
Cheese, fruit and veggie tray
Ranch fountain
Something else
Our Cake

We are only having about 75 to 90 people and I know his family is used to just going to KFC after a wedding at the JOP

I have no idea what a jello pretzel salad is, and ranch fountain sounds awful. The rest all sounds fine.

If my dh knew that there is such a thing as a ranch fountain, he would leave me for it. 

Shit.

I agree. I would do fried and grilled chicken and steamed shrimp instead.

Quoting Anonymous: Can you post a pic of the ranch fountain? That sounds nasty, so I'd scrap it for a chocolate fountain.

Also, I'm a fatty and wouldn't want fried shrimp and fried chicken. So make one of them not fried.

I don't think that's bad, the ranch fountain included since you will be having a veggie tray. Healthier then a chocolate fountain.

I think that sounds great. We had a buffet for our wedding and we did sandwich platter with different types of salads, chips and then of course wedding cake

Did you say Ranch...Fountain?

If that is what sounds like a good meal to the people in your life, that is all that matters.
