I am just doing a little preparatory research (please don't tell my current husband ;) ), and I'd like to hear how chowhounders would do the perfect "foodie" wedding. What would you serve, and how would you serve it (table service, buffet, food stations, private dining room, etc.) and what type of venue would you select to ensure your guests got the most out of the meal and that it reflected your foodie tastes and personality?
After way tooo many invitations to disappointing cookie cutter, luke warm, chicken or beef, catered weddings with 8 to a table and feeling more like the company Xmas party than a blessed event, I would like to know if it can actually be done better. I'd love to hear how real foodies conquered this mountain.
If you haven't done it yet, or if you got it completely right, or if you made every mistake in the book, what would you do if you could plan your dream foodie wedding?
