Do I expect anyone to honestly follow a list of suggestions down to the letter? No, but I do think that such lists are a great way to get the proverbial ball rolling, especially in respects to planning a wedding. With that in mind, Real Simple has a lovely article on what to serve for four different types of receptions. You may not like everything on the menu, but at the very least it could give you a fresh perspective and some insight on the kind of food to serve depending on your style (and budget). Enjoy!
