So we love the idea of not having traditional beef and chicken at our reception. We did a tasting yesterday and loved the ham (carving station) and a caribbean tilapia. Do you think that would be a weird combination? the wedding is in October at a winery.

Well, kind of.
But, if the food will be good nobody will care.

I think so long as there is some sort of Veg meal eveyone should be happy. 🙂

I think it sounds really good for a winery. When I eat fish I must drink wine with it. People who don’t like fish will have the option of ham and I think that goes well with wine too….No wine expert, but I feel like a salty meet would go well with a dry wine?

I would love both of those options, but I know people in my family and social circles that wouldn’t eat either. Not a lot of people, but enough to make me include a third chicken option.

The only thing that makes it “odd” is that its not standard wedding fare. I think that makes it even better. It sounds absolutely delicious.

Yeah, it’s unusual, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing! Go for it, just pick a “safe” vegetarian option. Picky eaters who won’t eat ham or fish can get the vegetarian option.

Thanks for the feedback guys! A safe vegetarian option sounds like a good idea.

I would not eat either of those, but i’d probably eat the vegetarian option (not a vegetarian myself, but that’s usually a safe bet 🙂 )

i think you have to think about your group of family and friends. will they find it weird? we went to a wedding where a majority of the guests were flying in to san diego from the midwest. the groom said that his family and friends wanted good food and lots of it. they chose the typical chicken/steak with mashed potatoes, salad, roasted mix veggies, rolls. everyone loved it.
as much as i would love a plated dinner, i know my family all too well. they want to feel like they are able to pick and choose. my brother’s plated reception was nice but my family didn’t like the fact that they couldn’t put more of a certain item on their plate. i went with steak and salmon as the protein options (and discussed the vegetarian options with the chef — his options sound really yummy!) although i don’t eat red meat and prefer poultry. my family doesn’t like chicken and i thought duck might be strange for some people. i love duck.
but at the end of the day, it’s your wedding and if i was a guest, i would be happy with what you decide to serve me.

@Baimee: I agree. If you think it tastes good no one will care about not having a beef or chicken option.

Sounds good. Not weird at all.
