    Hello everyone!

    So I'm about to start the process of researching caterers but I think having some idea of what kind of food we would like served at the reception would help a lot with not only where to start looking for caterers but who to select in the end. Which leads me to my question: do you have any suggestions for what works well or works out horribly for reception foods?
    My fiance' and I have discussed this some and we're unsure if we should just do a smattering of foods that we both like or if we should pick one cuisine style. So far we just know that we would like to have equal vegetarian and non-vegetarian options as our guests will be from both types of diets (we are also checking to see if we have anyone attending that is vegan or has food allergies).
    Also is it a good idea to have the food coincide with colors/themes? We don't have a specific theme, but don't really know if we should work in the colors somehow (for example if blue is one of our colors have a dish that has blueberries in it, or if a color is purple have plums or eggplants in dishes, etc).
    Should we consider if a food is too "sloppy" to serve/eat?
    Thank you in advance everyone! I look forward to hearing your experiences and opinions!

      Im not sure about incorporating the colour scheme in the food, maybe more so for the desserts than the actual food?

      I think certain types of cuisine can be mixed together and some dont go as well. Personally for example I wouldnt have Chinese and Mexican food toghether. But I wouldnt have a problem with for example having Greek food (lots of Vegetarian options) with American Style BBQ.
