First time catering a large event ...

Hey Hounds...

I've been given the exciting task of catering an informal wedding. There will be about 80 people and we're only doing cold/room temp. food. I've never catered before and would love any and all advice on how to plan and what is easy, yummy and beautiful.


stuffed tomatoes
2 dips with crackers
artisan breads with 2 flavoured butters

sesame asparagus
roasted peppers (marinated)
a couple of large baked salmons
chicken wings

1 green salad
potato salad
black bean / corn salad

a cheese tray
fresh fruit

sweet stuff will be done by someone else.

Thoughts? Advice? Warnings? Kudos?
