Hello! Long time lurker but new member here!
We are working with a young couple to cater their wedding this spring. They are having a buffet dinner for 100 in a barn after an outside wedding. We offered some options then sat down and we hashed at a menu that they are happy with. I am writing up the proposal and a thought crossed my mind that I did not know if I should bring up to the young couple. First, here is the menu:
Cheese and seasonal fruit tray with a cheese-based dips for crackers
Proscuitto and filo wrapped Asparagus
Smoked Chicken salad in crisp buttered bread cups
Bacon wrapped green onion and Creole mustard stuffed pork loin roulade
Beef "pot roast"
Blue cheese and bacon potatoes au gratin
Shrimp and Grits Casserole
Tossed Green salad
Blueberry and white chocolate bread pudding
Okay, so the "thought" was "there is not a vegetable". Salad COULD be thought of as a vegetable, I suppose. Still the other sides are so rich, should I encourage them to add another side dish that is more a typical vegetable?
Thoughts? Half the guests will probably be in their 20's while the other half will be in their late 40's-50's.
I appreciate your input. I am hesitant to go to them because I don't want them to think I am being critical of their choices but I would also hate for them to think back and think I should have made a recommendation.
