    @MsMonkey:  I think you should have at least 3 varieties of passed app, the 2 just doesn’t seem like enough.  I would ditch the meaballs and add anything but the goat cheese one (it sounds weird TBH)

    As a vegetarian I’d have no options for appetizers or entrees! So that would be a bummer for me.

    ETA: Just saw your poll on the appetizers, they look great! That would add a nice veggie option.

    mini pizzas sound good and filling. Maybe add one of those instead of meatballs?

    PS your wedding food sounds amazing! Jealous!

    Your menu seems tasty! However, I voted to remove the bacon wrapped dates because I know many people who do not eat pork. Also, if you are looking to cater to those that prefer a kosher menu, bacon wouldn’t work. I voted for Mini Margherita Pizzas. I think those would be a crowd pleaser! Laughing

    @MsMonkey:  If I were you, I would make sure that one of the entree options was vegetarian. And I would pick something different for both appetizer options. I think the goat cheese dip with chips/crackers, the caprese salad skewers, and the mini pizza margheritas all sound great!

    Just as a note, if you keep kosher the salmon is kosher but the beef isn’t kosher even if you remove the bacon because it’s still meat + cheese.

    @MsMonkey:  There is sooooooooooo much cheese and cream going on in both your apps and dinner choices/side. I would pick another one or two apps and make them light and refreshing versus dairy heavy. Here are some options:

     

    Seared Tuna on a Wonton Crisp with a Mango Chutney

    Herb Chicken wrapped in Prosciutto with a Sage Brown Butter

    Panko Crusted Chicken Satay with a Sweet Chili Dipping Sauce

    Grilled Cilantro Lime Shrimp served with a Fresh Mango Salsa

    …or a vegetable-something like a cucumber cup fill with red pepper hummus or something…

    @MsMonkey:  if you have jewish guests who keep kosher, nixing the bacon in the filet won’t do it – it’s stuffed with cheese! kosher would definitely dictate no meat and cheese together, but yeah, adding bacon would make it epically non kosher 🙂 maybe your caterer can do simple filets without the gorgonzola?

    All of these sound amazing. I am a firm believer in giving your guests 3 options for entrees, one of which being veggie. If you are paying by the plate, veggie options are usually cheaper anyway so more ppl that choose that is cheaper for you in the long run. Just a thought.

    I’m not a vegetarian, but I don’t like how there is NOTHING with no meat (salad doesn’t count)

    @MsMonkey:  

    I just commented something similar on another bee’s menu, but do you realise that a lactose intollerant person can’t eat either main or either side? I know you are going to have a section for dietary restrictions, but my heart always sinks when I look at a menu and everything either has cheese or crem in it. I start figuring out how to pack power bars into my evening bag.
