The little mini sandwiches go over well usually...they have great meat trays, cheese trays, veggie trays...pre made little sausage weenies in sauce that just need to be heated...

You don't have to use  a crock pot...do you have one of the flat counter top grills/one of the counter top grills with raised edges? Maybe someone you know has one?

I think you have plenty of selection on your menu.   Sorry I don't have any other ideas for you.

I think the menu sounds great-  but I wouldn't over-do it-  I agree that I think you have enough selection...  there is going to be so much going on that day,  you don't want to feel too overwhelmed...  The dinner menu sounds perfect-  as for the appy's...  I'd stick to just the fruit and veggies...  deviled eggs are great,  but they can be a lot of work, esp for a crowd...  just something to think about-  but I might have to make some for lunch now!  :)  I just did a pulled pork sandwich for dinner last night...   it was yummy!

Your menu sounds great :-) You are serving a lot as it is, I would stick with what you have! I am having a pizza parlor cater mine and we are only serving pizza, salad bar, bosco bread sticks, a candy bar (trick or treat style), and wedding cake! However, I LOVE pumpkin pie so there is going to be a pie on the bridal party table lol Is that selfish? Anyways, your menu sounds great! Adding to it just might stress you out!

At my wedding, the biggest hit was the turkey and cheese mini deli wraps. You can get a package of 30 tortillas at Sam's Club, a double pack of Oscar Meyer deli turkey (or deli meat of your choice), Kraft cheese singles, mayo or Miracle Whip, and mustard. We cut the tortillas in half after wrapping them, and put the mayo and mustard in side dishes with spoons.
Those went the fastest. Every wrap was gone within 20 minutes of the reception.
They were a cheap fix, too!

We did the Lil' Smokies sausages in sweet BBQ sauce too, but those weren't as popular as the turkey and cheese wraps.

Consider adding some salad and fresh fruit.  Your menu sounds delicious but it is heavily loaded with starch and fat, and it would be nice to offer something for guests who are trying to eat a healthy diet.

BTW, please send me some leftovers, especially the pork and mac 'n cheese!

I hope you have a lovely day.

I think you have a great mean, you def. dont want to over do it. But I think it wouldnt be a bad idea to add chicken in to the mix, not everyone likes pulled pork....Are you having alot of kids at your wedding? What about chicken nuggets for the kids?

Toni-- thats what i was thinking.. my daughter loves bks chicken nuggets and you can get 4 of them for a buck.. so i thought about getting a bunch of them for the kids..   but how much chicken would i need.. right now there are 50 confirmed guests.. we are doing a half pig for the pork.. so that should come out to like 20lbs of pulled pork ( something like that)

ohh should i get less of the chicken breasts since the main dish is suppose to be pulled pork and chicken is the alternative for people who dont like pork

The mini deli wraps might be a good alternative. It includes the meat, but it's lighter on the fat than the pulled pork, and lighter on the stomach, if some people prefer. Like I said, they're a cheap fix, too.
I think the fruit tray with chocolate dipping sauce (or caramel) and the veggie tray with ranch dip would be a nice touch as well. That adds the beneficial fiber and other health factors for those that may not be into eating much starch, carbs, sugars and saturated fats.

That hard to say...Some ppl might eat both, and other might just eat one or the other....I alway like to get extra....50 is just the guests not the wedding party...right? Or is that everyone? if 50ppl is everyone who will be there I would say 40-60pices....If not I would go with 60-70piecs

Sorry to throw a late curveball, best wedding food I ever had was Mexican food.  I think they just went and got heaping aluminum pans full at a local Mexican restaurant.  Delicious, cheap, something for every appetite including vegetarians.  

Maybe the alternative to pulled pork could be those frozen taquitos that come 40 to a box.  Easy to heat, all you need to put with them is a thing of salsa, everyone loves them.

Good luck!
