My fiancee and I are having a lunch time reception and we have decided to do a buffet, we'll have 2 pasta choices (chicken alfredo and 4 cheese tortellini), Cesar salad, fresh fruit, bread sticks, and focaccia, there will also be appetizers before lunch while we are getting our pictures taken. I am planning this wedding long distance, fiancee is in state A, where we are getting married, and I am in state B so fiancee was the only one to go to the tasting at the caterers yesterday. The caterer mentioned that we should only order half portions of food for the children we are inviting because it will cost less. Fiancee thinks this is a good idea but it makes me nervous. This isn't a plated meal, it's a self serve buffet. I'm worried it wouldn't even occur to parents that we'd only budgeted a half serving of food for their children, it certainly wouldn't occur to me at a buffet. And I'm already worried about running out of food, I know I have some big eaters in my family, so this makes me even more nervous. We are on a tight budget and are cutting corners on everything else but I really don't want to skimp on the food. So does this sound like a recipe for disaster or am I overreacting? Thanks!
