We finally decided on food for the whole day, hog roast sandwiches with roast potatoes and all the trimming and then for the night using our wedding cake of pork pie and cheese with crackers, chutneys with breads and oils.. we are so excited. Only to have our bubble popped.. Other halfs dad over heard this and started to pull a face saying it just doesn't go with having pork in afternoon and then again at night. What's people's opinion on this? Does it sound as good as we hoped or has he got a point?

Normally I would say try not to double up on one food - however in the way you are offering it I don't think many people would make the connection that you've offered pork twice. As long as it tastes good I don't think many people will care! Plus its your wedding and you are paying for the food - do what you want!

I think it sounds lovely. I think if it was me I would maybe just add a couple more options in for the evening as well as I know if I did pork pie and cheese my mum wouldn't have anything to eat as she's not bothered for either xx

You wouldn't traditionally serve the same meat twice in a day but as one is a pork pie and the other is a hog roast it will be fine and your menu sounds delicious

I don't see anything wrong with that. At the end of the day it's your wedding day, it should've about what you and your partner want

So what? you're offering food - food which the guests don't have to pay for. they should be grateful getting anything more than a bag of crisps!! (Someone I know actually did offer just crisps!!) Do what suits you, and more importantly, is within your budget. Forget everyone else's opinion.
