We’ll be having a pig roast reception (very casual wedding!) and I was wondering if you bees think we should add another meat option. Since we won’t actually have the pig roasting at the reception, just the carved meat, I was thinking we could add some roasted chicken, especially because one pig only serves 100 people and we have a guest list of 115. The pig roast option comes with 3 sides (salad, potato, veggie) and dinner rolls, so the only extra costs would be the chicken. We also know that none of our guests are vegetarians/vegans. Thanks for your help!

Our pig roast had pig, chicken, baked beans, pasta salad, and corn on the cob. We asked guest to bring side dishes or desserts if they felt like they would like to contribute – it was not mandatory.

First of all…YUM! Pig roast reception sounds awesome! I think you should have roasted chicken too though just for practicality. Not everyone loves pig as much as I do.

I would offer another meat, and I think chicken is a good option. There are a lot of people who don’t eat pork for a variety of reasons so it would be nice to have that option. I also think it’s smart to add chicken just for the amount of food – it’s always better to have too much food than to run out!

I’d add the chicken for sure. You need to have all 115 guests covered for food. Plus, the chicken will accomodate those crazy people who may not want delicious roasted pig. 😛

I would offer another option. I’m one of those crazy people who don’t eat four-legged animals, but I eat chicken/turkey occasionally (and lots of fish).

I am (right now) the only one who did other – I would definitely add a second protein but NOT chicken, because they’re both white meats and are very similar, and having them both be roasted they’ll be extra similar. Maybe fish or beef?

you can’t make everyone happy, but i think you should have another option beside pig.
chicken will cover the most amount of people.
i know they call pork the other white meat, but i know many people who don’t eat pork and red meat but eat chicken.

I would definitely offer chicken, but I would also be concerned if your main thing (the pig) can’t feed all of your guests. I would definitely up the amount you have of that.

Love pig roast ! 🙂 But I do think that adding the chicken is a good idea. Especially since you need the extra meat anyways (because of the numbers) Its always nice to have options, some people might prefer one or the other and be glad they got to pick 🙂

Definitely offer chicken, I’m one of the many people who don’t eat pork, so chicken would be a good alternative!
