@Sweetkerryb:  I went to a great wedding in Newport where the starter was clam chowder and one of the appetizer stations was clam strips and cocktail sauce.  Entree options were lobster roll with salad, a steak, or a vegetarian pasta.  I think it very nicely covered all the bases.  Oh, and there were chocolate covered dried cranberries on the candy buffet.

@Sweetkerryb: I grew up in New England and the taste of fried clam strips is the one thing that sends me right back! Craving some now!

I love the theme and I think your FI and the PP have great suggestions. The cranberries are such a cute idea! For non-seafoody ideas, maybe corn on the cob, cole slaw, red potatoes (roasted or boiled) other sides that you might find at a clambake. A hearty risotto, grilled veggies, meatballs or sausages also come to mind. You could pretty much season anything with Old Bay and it would fit too 🙂

I’m having a seafood restaurant reception (although in Florida, not New England) but our non-seafood appetizers are spinach dip, bruschetta, and spicy meatballs, and our non-seafood entree is beef filet with mashed potatoes.
