I went to a wedding where they served cold boiled shrimp. It was really a hit, and it was sweet to hear that several family members got together to peel them, cook them, plate them etc.

Here are some suggestions- these are all delicious!

A friend of mine served this at his wedding, and it was a big hit. He served the shrimp and green mayo separately instead of tossing them together as per recipe:

So it will be hot and there will be lots of fresh produce to work with. How many guests do you want to feed, at about what price point per person? Do you have access to sufficient refrigerator space and do you have some help with the cooking and serving? Is there any one thing you absolutely must have to be happy (other than the cake, LOL?)? Are there foods that MUST NOT appear, for whatever reason? Do any special dietary needs (kosher, vegan. diabetes, etc.) need to be considered?

What do you want the "feel" of the reception to be?
- Elegant and classic?
- Boy, that was a fun party?
- Amazing food?
- Definitely a reflection of [the bride's] personality?

Thanks, TaxLady! I have no idea how many weddings I have planned and/or catered over the years, so the questions are born of experience. Unless you start with some idea of where the bride wants to go, you never end up getting her there. I don't know why my questions got a thumbs down icon. Didn't even know such a thing was done on the friendliest cooking forum

I thought it might have something to do with experience

I think you accidentally added the thumbs down icon yourself.
