mmmm menu

One of the items we finalized (basically; of course we can still change it if we want to) at our meeting last week was the menu! Just a fair warning - if you're not hungry now, you might be at the end of this post!

After the ceremony our guests will be greeted with an open bar and a scrumptious hors d'oeuvre station consisting of:
  • Baked brie filled with raspberry preserves, wrapped in a puff pastry and baked until golden brown
  • Hot baked crab dip with sherry - served warm with french bread rounds
  • Warm blue cheese and bacon spread - accompanied by grain and butter crackers
  • Hummus trio - served with pita chips
  • Seasonal vegetable display - accompanied by herb dip
Are you ready for some more??? We will also have a main buffet consisting of:
  • Signature Moser salad - field greens, strawberries, blue cheese, walnuts and Moser Vinaigrette
  • Marinated and grilled chicken breast slices seasoned with jerk seasonings - served with peach salsa
  • Smoked brisket, rubbed with spices and smoked slowly
  • Pulled pork - served with apple butter BBQ sauce
  • Old fashioned tomato bread pudding - a mixture of tomato, cheese, scallions, bread crumbs and herbs
  • Baked garlic cheese grits
  • Roasted vegetables
  • Cheese biscuits
  • Soft yeast rolls
  • Assortment of fresh fruit - served with sweet cream fruit dip

AND to top it all off, a delectable display of:
  • Seven assorted cakes - three white velvet raspberry, two Spanish lemon and two chocolate
You have already heard about the cake many times before. Oh, and my parents even got to enjoy their very own cake tasting this weekend since the future mister picked up a strawberry cake for my birthday. They loved it!

Mmmmm....now I'm in the mood for pulled pork. I hope our guests enjoy what we selected. The future mister and I tried to get a pretty good mix of foods we both enjoy (i.e. baked brie, grilled veggies for me, blue cheese dip and grits for him). Hopefully we get to eat some of the deliciousness on the wedding day!

What are/were some of your favorite items on your menu? Those of you who are already married - were you able to eat any of it on your wedding day?

  1. Mmm! Great menu! We served a Mexican buffet with enchilladas and fajitas, which are our favorites. The guests loved it!

  2. Is there a vegetarian entree?

    I ate my whole plate at my wedding! I had butternut squash ravioli and mixed veggies. Our other option was chicken ballentine with veggies and skin on garlic mashed potatoes.

    Your cake sounds great!

  3. Even though there isn't a vegetarian entree, per se (there is only one person on our guest list who is vegetarian), I think we have a lot of veggie friendly options: Hummus, baked brie, raw veggies with herb dip, roasted veggies, grits, salad, rolls and fresh fruit. Even though I'm a meat eater, I think I could definitely fill up on those items. And if not - there's always plenty of cake!
