Df and I are getting married in 3 weeks
We are only having a small wedding ceremony/reception at home. There will be about 25 people including us, about 1/3 will be children, ages ranging from 8 months - 13 years.
So far I have
Nibbles/finger food for after the ceremony
Meatballs with dipping sauce
Mini spring rolls
Mini sausage rolls
Cheese & deli meat platter
Dips & crackers
Fruit platter & orgasm dip (sour cream, brown sugar , Baileys liquor)
Cob loaf dip
Chips & lollies for the kids
Cold meat eg ham, roast pork
Chicken & pineapple bbq Skewers
Steak Dianne from our local butcher
Potato salad or potato bake
Juice/soft drink for the older kids
Beer & wine for all the adults
Wedding cake for dessert
Does this sound ok ?
Is there anything you would add or leave out ?

I think you could get away with less meat for the main meal. I'd either have bbq food OR cold meat.

I'm getting married in 2 weeks with only 18 people. That sounds like a heck of a lot of food lol. I'm pretty sure we're having a cheese platter, fruit platter, choice of salmon or steak, 3 salads, cake.

The food sounds great! I think most of it will get eaten, weddings go for a long time when you add the ceremony, photos then celebration, people get hungry! Nothing worse than hearing the people stopped at maccas on the way home from your wedding.
Have a great day!

Speaking from a place of a not meatasaurus, I'd probably have more salad variety and less meatses.
If you were to ask my meatasaurus housemates, they'd say the complete opposite though. There is a lot of meat on the menu though. I'd probably cut it out of the entre part of things and decide between meats or a BBQ dinner.

Looks great Cluckcluck! I'm an over-caterer too, better that than to run out of food I say.
I agree with Redlipsandpearls, you could get away with less meat. There's going to be deli meats and prawns at the nibblies stage, so I would leave out the cold meats and prawns from the main menu (or vice-versa).

If you're cooking/providing the food I was thinking more in terms of too many food options as opposed to too much food in terms of literally how much there is. At my MIL's 60th birthday I think there was about 50 people and there were less options than that and they were still eating the food for weeks after lol. 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.
