We are having destination wedding with about 50-60 people. Does it scream cheap if we only have a chicken entree for our dinner (reception will include cocktail hour with hand passed hors d oeuvres, salad or soup, wine during dinner and champagne toast, and cake and coffee service)? Buffett and family style are not options. We would love to have a combination plate with fish and chicken, but our guest list is already larger than we want, so having only chicken will save about $30 a head in our wedding package (includes much more than reception).

I don’t think it seems cheap. Of all the dishes that are practically universally appealing, I would say chicken is the way to go!

Where will the wedding be? You can do amazing things to jazz up chicken!

I think chicken would be great if it’s the only option you have. Do you have anything set up for vegetarians?

i don’t think that’s cheap at all. could you negotiate with the place for a vegetarian option for the same price tho, in case there are vegetarians?

I dont think its cheap at all either. Ask your venue what type of great sauces they can recommend to go with it to up it a little 🙂

I don’t think there’s anything cheap about that. I do agree with cherriez though…you should try to see if everyone you’re inviting can eat chicken and that there are no vegetarians.

I think it is perfectly acceptable. Chicken can be delicious.

I don’t think it’s cheap. Most people love it! And especially if you’ll have hors douerves and soup/salad, no one will be starved. But I agree, definately ask what sauces and things they offer.

No it doesn’t scream cheap at all. At least you’re having other things with it and not just serving chicken all by its self. Plus there are so many things that your caterer can do with chicken in order to make it a variety. But also be sure to check on vegetarians, that way you’re already prepared in case someon is one.

I don’t think chicken is cheap. It’s such a blank canvas and you can do so much to it which is why people like it so much. Don’t fret, it’s not beef-a-roni! 😀

No way! Its not cheap at all. Besides, you have to do what is in your budget, realistically! I learned that the hard way.
