I deliberately left our food options to a minimum/simple because I don't want people to feel like they're spending all day preparing/serving and then cleaning up food. It all sounds very yummy I'd just think about taking too much on.
    I'm doing all the food. You make a good point. I guess I'm just offering lots of options because I'm not sure what people like.

    Looking at your menu, as amazing as it is, I'd drop the BBQ meats, the sausage rolls and party pies. And just have everything you can pre-prepare the day or two in advance. That way you don't spend your wedding day cooking or anything, it's all ready to go and no hassles. =D

    That's why I thought two protein options would be a good idea - atlantic salmon or steak (I checked first no vegetarians - I would've happily catered for vego if I needed to). Generally when you're at a wedding you get given one of a couple of options and I've been to weddings where you're given either fish or steak depending on where you're sitting. People swap if they don't like.

    I think it's very thoughtful to have so many options (especially in case of fussy kids) but I think it's also good to keep in mind that you'll probably want to be enjoying the day rather than worrying about food and leaving a huge mess for people to clean up.
