What would you prefer as a guest?
We are planning to take our photos prior to our ceremony therefore we are thinking about skipping a cocktail hour. In place of a cocktail hour we are thinking about serving a fruit tray, vegetable tray and meat/cheese tray as a late night snack. As a guest would you prefer to have the cocktail hour or the late night snack time?
Also I am really stuck on what type of menu to offer. We are planning to do buffet style meal. My FI is Italian so I thought about a lasagna with salad and garlic bread. I myself am a steak and potato kind of gal. I know some type of chicken is usually a safe option because most people like chicken. We thought possibly a baked chicken and a fried chicken option as well. I just don't know and could really use some help. It's hard to get a caterer quote if I can't even decide what I want lol. My cousin works for a catering company and may do our food as a gift but I also want her to enjoy herself so unsure if we will go with that option. I know that would save us a ton of money.
