So we’re going to give our guests a choice of entree (that has to be precediced on the RSVP).
Chicken Supreme (Filling TBD)
Mushroom Ravioli (Vegetarian Option)
but we’re torn on the 2nd meat option
Should we do Salmon or Beef? Which would you prefer?
It would be a Port Steak or Altlantic Salmon (Sides and sauces TBD)
**EDIT** we are both from the East Coast and the majority of our family eats fish as do most of our friends and there are no known seafood allergies!

Beef. I don’t like salmon, and I know that many people also don’t like fish. But details on each would be helpful.

Beef. Chicken is good for people who don’t eat red meat and you already have a vegetarian option. I know of more people allergic or squeamish/picky about fish than about beef. Depending on the preparation, beef might be more fool-proof.

I would do salmon. Although I rarely like the salmon at a wedding I think fish is safer than beef. Some people dont eat beef or chicken but may not want to get stuck eating an all veggie meal. We are having filet mignon or sea bass as our dinner options.

Beef is the safer, more universal choice. I like both salmon and beef, but a dinner without a red meat option seems strange to me.

I can’t decide – I totally would pick the ravioli (and I eat meat!)

We had grilled salmon and tenderloin steak as our meat choices. About 60% of our guests chose the steak, and 40% chose the salmon.

I would pick salmon, but I guess I don’t know a lot of picky eaters. I would think people would be more picky about beef if they can’t order it to the doneness they like. Some people like their beef so rare it is still mooing, while others want it burnt to shoe leather.

@pixiecat: This is what I’m thinking! I like my steak mid-rare while my step mom likes it well done (Burnt in my opinion).
My sister says salmon all the way, I’m just not 100% sure.

Salmon. Beef is hard to cook in large quantities for the wide range that people like it (rare, medium rare, medium, etc.) Fish is easier and as long as it does not dry our or is bland you have hit a home run.

- Wedding: May 2013 - Pavilion overlooking golf course scenery, reception at banquet hall
I’m so tired of dieting that I’m sick of chicken, and I’ve never liked fish. I would 100% prefer there be a beef option!

beef!!! But im not from the coast and i hate fish!

Wouldn’t cooking the beef to medium solve the issue for the most part? I love my steak still mooing, but I can happily eat medium.

@MsGinkgo: we had chicken piccata and opted for salmon after verifying that it was fresh and wild caught. We are from the PNW so most people like salmon and a lot of the out of town family was from the Midwest where you can’t get the fish you can here.
