It sounds delicious!  However, will there be a cocktail hour or some form of appetizer besides salad and bread?  For me it would be enough, but some may think you need extra.

@MiraJo:  I don’t think a salad is really enough to constitute a meal, but I don’t really know what kind of salad it is.  

I think the menu overall sounds heavy for a mid-summer wedding, but that’s just a personal opinion.

@MiraJo:  Salad and bread would not be enough for my veggie cousins, but they would have told you that they needed a special meal. Most people with strict food restrictions are happy to let you know 🙂

I think you need some hors d’oeuvres.  A description of the salad would help me understand whether it could serve as a meal.  It may also be nice to have the salad available for those eating meat as well…I like to have both meat and vegetables in a meal.

Is the same “meaty veg” salad being served to everyone as a course?  Or, is it just the vegetarian entree option?  If it is just the veg option, what happens if no one orders it?  Do you not get that “present”?

Also, is the caterer ok with outside food being served?  Most venues/caterers I’ve worked with (I was previously an event planner) expressly forbid this as an insurance and liability measure.

I assume the chicken parmesan comes with some kind of sphagetti in which case there will already be pasta for the dinner, so if there are vegetarians I would give them pasta for their entree not a salad. You yourself are callling the salad a side, so that should answer the question whether a side for one person is enough to be another person’s entree.

I would add a straight up vegetable as a side.

What about lasagna without meat in it? Then it would be the second entree and double as the veggie option. Just a thought

@MiraJo:  You asked TWICE? I would seriously not even give it another thought. Really– vegitarians will absolutely have let you know by now. Besides, it’s just one meal in the grand scheme of things. My cousins eat before going to their meat-happy side of the family. It’ll be fine.

@MiraJo:  We’re thinking about doing buffet style and just ordering half chicken and half beef and letting people decided at the wedding. There is a option to choose on the wedding website (there wasn’t enough room on the RSVP) but  no one has used it yet.

If you’re doing a buffet, people will want to try both, so just make sure you have enough food to accomodate that.  I’ve never been told, at a buffet, that I had to choose between the two mains, so would find that a little odd.

If it’s common in your area and the buffet is not self-serve, disregard my post.  I’ve just never seen it so would be a bit thrown off.

@MiraJo:  as a vegetarian I would be totally satisfied with a nice salad and bread 🙂
