At my wedding we had only 2 options a steak and shrimp plate or a vegetarian plate.  We had SO much food at cocktail hour and a lovely salad as well.  No one complained at all.  I think if you are offering 4 choices there is no need to offer chicken.  There will be something for everyone.

it’s typical to have chicken as an option b/c it’s the white meat choice.  you are having pork as your white meat option.

i personally perfer chicken over pork but you know your guests better than anyone.

how many meal options are you allowed to choose from?

Don’t worry- we’re doing salmon, pork, and veggie (mushroom ravioli in a brandy cream sauce- yum!) as a buffet, and haven’t gotten any complaints. Yes, chicken is standard, but it sounds like you’ve got a good mix of options, so everyone but the super picky could probably find something they like.

Out proteins are steak and salmon. No chicken necessary, IMO.

There will ALWAYS be someone who doesn’t like something! My MOH hates mushrooms but they’re my FI’s fav! You’re providing a good mix of options so just make sure YOU like them!

I think you’re providing a good mix of choices so there won’t be any problems.

As long as you have a veggie meal for the non meat-eaters or non-red meat eaters, you’ll be fine!

We don’t have a chicken entree- only beef, fish, or vegetarian…..

I think you’ll be fine. We’re doing baked stuffed pasta shells and either pork or salmon (FI can’t decide; I don’t like either, so I don’t really care).

you’re lucky! my venue allows one set option and a vegetarian option and thats it

 

i think that sounds great! and if someone doesnt like the meat, they choose vegetarian. simples
