Is this really that bad?

Personally, I prefer a single protein, but I wouldn’t object to getting beef and chicken – I wouldn’t eat the shrimp though.  I would make sure to let people know there’s seafood – that can be a pretty major allergy!

kimmo416:  That sounds great! Yay gluten-free dinner! I think people should enjoy it, they might not like everything on their plate so you might see money “wasted” if people don’t eat everything. People can be weird about seafood. I think just be prepared for phone calls about dietary restrictions and making sure your venue accomodates those few folks who need them. Hey it’s your wedding! Why are people against it? I want to eat that for lunch right now!

No, I think it is fine. I’d rather have options, that way if I dont like something there is something else to choose from.

It sounds fine to me, as long as you also have an alternate entree for your vegetarian guests.

kimmo416:  Do you have a wedding website?  My information card asks them to visit our website and us the Contact form if they have any dietary concerns.

I’m also doing a duo because I can’t have more than one entree choice anyhow.  Your menu sounds divine. 🙂

kimmo416:  It sound delicious but my FI is allergic to shrimp and wouldn’t be able to eat anything it’s touching 🙁


ETA: Obviously WE aren’t attending your wedding but I’d make sure your guests don’t have seafood or shellfish allergies. Some people are very sensitive.

kimmo416:  I wonder what accommodations you would make for vegans and vegetarians? Little kids? That’s the kind of stuff I worry about.

But your dinner sounds delicious to me.

I love duos and trio is fantastic too. The main thing is will it taste good? That’s really all I care about.

I think that sounds awesome.  I recently went to a wedding where everyone received a plate of salmon- it had a gross sauce, and salmon is pretty much the only fish I don’t care for- everyone complained, but you have options on your plate.  I went to a banquet where everyone got a plate of chicken and steak and everyone seemed to enjoy it, and I would be thrilled by a trio.  If someone doesn’t like one thing, they could eat another.  I might have an option for kids and maybe have the waiters make sure no one has a shellfish allergy.  If your wedding is small enough you may already know off hand if eating restrictions are even a concern

I’d be concerned with allergies, especially mixing this many foods. I have both shellfish and poultry allergies at my wedding and this meal would literally kill off a handful of our guests.

The other concern I’d have as the host is all the waste leftover from people picking at the food and only eating what they like.

I would think this is awesome! Who hasn’t been to a wedding and wished they chose the other entre:) THe exception to this would be people with allergies, but that would need to be addressed regardless.
