I am having regret. Had no idea the choice of the duo entree was FI and me picking it at our tasting, I thought it means that the guests get to pick it on day of wedding! Nope they just get plated a choice of the duo on their plate. They have no options at time of wedding. I had no idea.
There is a single entree that we pick but then everyone gets served same ONE thing (ie chicken OR beef OR fish).
I guess our best bet at this point is to go with a chick en and beef entree that EVEYONE will get a little of both??? No fish because no one is a vegan and a lot will not eat fish.
Ugh this would have been a deal breaker had I known this but the menu is kind of misleading and something FI and I never heard of for menu choices at a venue and he is in the restaurant industry and he still found it odd.

@jessyrez: Okay, so DH and I had duet plates at our wedding, and we ended up requesting special plates for some of our guests (it was an RSVP option for them), and our venue was okay with special orders for them. So we ended up with these options:
1) Duet Plate of steak/fish
2) Steak Only
3) Fish Only
4) Vegetarian/Vegan Plate
Have you tried asking your venue? I mean, they must deal with food allergies / preferences often!

@pengoala: I will speak to them on the 20th when we go in person to do our tasting. It will be a wrap up meeting and a tasting so about 3 hours total for our appt. Thank you for this idea because I just don’t know what I would do if I can’t have options. I just find that a bit odd.

@jessyrez: Yeah, if they give you a hard time, always state food allergies. It happens! And yes, if someone doesn’t like steak, I consider it a food allergy! 😛 LOL

@jessyrez: Are you sure you can’t give your guests choices? I know only a few places that will let you choose during the event / the day of because it’s wasteful. They have to prepare extras of everything so people can choose what they want and not run out. However, most places will let you choose ahead of time if you can specify how many of each dish they should prepare…like instead of 100 chickens, you can order 60 chicken, 40 beef. You should definitely clarify with your venue.
