    How much money will you save by removing the beef option?

    Also, what type of dishes are they?  For example, if you’re offering something like grilled chicken hearts with parsley vinaigrette, a vegetarian mushroom risotto, and smoked salmon with garlic Brussels sprouts, then having a beef option also would be a good idea, as I’m sure that there are a number of people who don’t like chicken hearts, mushrooms or Brussels sprouts (not me, I like all of those things!).

    @MsGinkgo:  Eh, I would toss it.

    But, I know people in our families that would be VERY unhappy with no red meat options. Some people *smh*

    Depends on your crowd I think 🙂

    @MsGinkgo:  We didn’t give people an option at our wedding unless they were vegetarian and then they had something different. Everyone ate what they were given (pork) and seemed to enjoy it as all the plates came back empty. It’s YOUR wedding, serve what you like and can afford. People will survive without beef for one day.

    I did vote keep the Beef. Because I love beef (we had it as the only main at our wedding we didnt give a choice, just a veggie option…and food was the most important part of our reception)…..but then I read again, if your not showcasing the chef and loosing the beef gives you a chair upgrade and you want that….ditch the beef!

    @MsGinkgo:  As a guest, I couldn’t care less about what the chairs look like; I’d much rather have a beef option than sit in an upgraded chair that I won’t even notice.  Unless the chairs are horrific (i.e. large, visible stains), I don’t think it’s worth it.

    @MsGinkgo:  I wouldn’t remove it. I would switch the salmon out for black cod.

    If anything I would remove the chicken. Its so basic. Beef, black cod, and a vegetarian option sound much nicer.

    ETA: As a guest, I’d rather better food options than a chair I likely wont notice. Unless its stained or broken.

    @housebee:  I agree. I’d rather have beef than sit in an upgraded chair… but I guess it depends on the current chair. Are they hideous? If the chair upgrade will make a huge difference in the overall look and feel of the room, then drop the beef. Otherwise, keep it. Mmmm.

    @housebee:  Agreed.  Guest experience should be #1. 

    OP will your guests miss beef?  Some people are huge red meat people and would crap themselves if there wasn’t “real” meat at a wedding. (Note, I do not think this way, but others definitely do).

    But on the flip side, if they never knew beef was an option then they wouldn’t know that they’ve “missed out”

    @MsGinkgo:  Honestly, that sounds a bit shady: a rental company is going to have their least expensive chairs be uncomfortable, so that brides have to upgrade?  Is it possible to get a different rental company?  Otherwise I’d be complaining and asking for a deep discount on those upgraded chairs.

    I would much more prefer beef to chicken. So if anything i would say loose the chicken. 🙂
    Definately salmon over cod.
