Seriously, it was probably the hardest part of wedding prep thus far.
I'm talking, of course, about our reception food tasting.
Seriously, y'all, this was a very, very hard thing to do.
But before we get to the details...
So, at the moment, we want our full menu for the reception to be:
-handmade flatbread with a variety of toppings including arugula with goat cheese, ham with caramelized onions, and smoked salmon
-bite-sized cornmeal hushpuppies topped with remoulade sauce
-wild mushroom tarts topped with truffle creme fraiche
-mini shrimp and oyster po-boys
-a smashed potato bar with a variety of toppings
-red velvet, carrot cake, and chocolate cupcakes
And a bar stocked with:
-and our signature drink- Maker's Mark and Sprite
We decided to plan on only 2 bottles of champagne for the toasts- enough for us and our immediate families, rather than pouring enough for everyone only to have it wasted if everybody already has a drink. (Of course anybody can ask for champagne at toast time if they want some!)
All in all we think it'll be a filling lunch, and if there's not enough sugar, there's always the candy buffet to nibble on!
Was it difficult to narrow down food choices for your reception menu?
