    you didn’t add fish to the chioces… i’d definitely go for fish if it was a choice.

    I would typically pick fish (you didn’t have that as an option) but if not, I would probably pick the vegetarian.  I like chicken and beef just fine, but I don’t always love how it’s cooked for weddings, banquets, etc. so I’ll end up picking fish or vegetarian to be safe.

    I always choose the beef if I’m given a choice and about 95% of the time regret it. I guess it’s conisdered the classier option since it’s the most expensive and I do love red meat, but for some reason at a wedding I tend to prefer pasta which is almost never served.

    90’s throwback: I feel like chicken tonight 🙂

    Oh, and like Hotchild said, meat options prepared for weddings aren’t usually cooked to perfection.

    We have approximately 70% of our guests choosing the beef entree from the choices of beef, chicken, and vegetarian.  Even though I’m not a beef eater and I would never choose it, it seems to be the overwhelming favorite at least in our case.

    I would chose chicken or vegetarian.  I personally very rarely eat beef (only if I’m craving tacos really) because of the environmental impact of it.  But those are my convictions, I know lots of people like red meat…

    I looove beef. It’s been hit and miss at weddings. I had a FAB prime rib this past weekend but i heard the chicken was good. But i usually prefer it at a nearby steakhouse. CHicken is a better bet; it’s all cooked one way and people just eat it.

    Oh my gosh, I can’t hardly read this because you’re making me hungry!  Personally, I’d go for the beef.  At our wedding people ate more beef than chicken (we had both).

    What is the meat option? I don’t like chicken and I’m too picky to order fish and I’m allergic to dairy – so no cream sauce … so either I’d order meat (beef)

    @MrsHymanRoth, fish and chicken are technically meat as well since they were both living creatures at one point. 

    @OP, without having any clue as to what these specific dishes are (how they’re prepared, what the cut of beef is, etc), I would go with beef just because I personally have had too many bad experiences with chicken in banquet settings being undercooked which is dangerous and I’m not into fish, nor am I a vegetarian. I think you’ll get more accurate answers if you elaborate on what specifically you will be serving.

    I usually order the beef at wedding receptions.  For whatever reason, I think chicken often gets too dry and isn’t as tasty when mass produced.  I think my second choice would be the chicken and pasta.

    I’m not a big beef person, but even when I’ve gone to weddings and gotten it, its usually not done. Pasta seems hard to screw up, and also tasty 🙂
