oops, my pre-wedding dinner party just got wayyyyy too big...chafing dish dinner suggestions!?

Hello! I just got in a little over my head and would love some suggestions!

I am getting married in May and made the mistake of including an invite to our home for dinner a few days before the wedding, thinking only about 20 people would arrive early from out of town to attend. Boy, was I wrong, the count is now up to 55 adults, 10 kids.

Fortunately, I love to cook, and will have a couple days to prep before...

I am looking for some suggestions on dishes that work well in a chafing dish. And if they can be pre-made even better!!

I promised a tropical/seafood theme as we live in Florida and most people are flying in from out of town. I want to provide some really nice dishes and also use a lot of the fish my fiance catches (we have 2 deep freezers full).

But I want to make everything ahead of time and keep the hot stuff in a chafing dish....which i'm not quite sure can be done with fish, I've never used a chafing dish before.

here were some of my thoughts for chafing dish entrees,

jerk chicken
tuna skewers with ginger chili sauce
blackened mahi
coconut basmati rice
chicken fingers & fries for the kids
peppered beef tenderloin (does this go in a chafing dish, room temperature or heat lamp?)
lobster macaroni & cheese
