So we decided on our venue today (I’m so happy!!) and we are trying to narrow down our menu choices because we get to pick 3 entrees! They have a million selections, so I figured I’d put the ones we’ve voted for (and our family) since we’re sort of split up to see what the majority votes for! 🙂 Thanks ladies!

I think it might depend on what you’re going for. You have a few of what I consider comfort foods there (pot roast, turkey). They all look really good though!

Are these cocktail options or like proper plated meals? Does each guest get all three? What style of wedding are you going for?

It’s a rustic venue (Penn’s Peak, Jim Thorpe PA) normally a small concert place, but it’s all wooden walls, exposed beams, beautiful wooden floors, views of the mountains and lakes in the distance for miles and miles sunsets etc.
We’re having a cocktail hour with butlered Hors d’Oeuvres, then salad, then a plated dinner where each guest will have their choice of 3 dinner entrees (which they will have previously have selected on their RSVP cards) with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans or asparagus (whatever’s available).

Just a general tip: one thing I’d be mindful of is the sauces/style. While I think it would be a good idea to do one dark meat, one light meat, and one seafood, some of the styles for each of those choices are similar. So if you went with something like the beef tenderloin, I would avoid the chicken marsala and go with something lighter, like the chicken piccata.
For the record, I voted for the crab cake, prime rib, and chicken piccata.

@reginaphalange: Thank you for the tip- good thing to keep in mind 🙂 My fiance is trying to tell me we don’t need a chicken and I told him that is basically non-negiociable since I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a wedding NOT having a chicken… But I didn’t think about the sauces until you mentioned it!

@reginaphalange: Agreed. I’d avoid getting 3 things with heavy sauces or mushroom sauce, etc.
Your food looks DELICIOUS. I voted crabcakes, prime rib, and chicken cordon bleu. Mmmmm. 🙂
ETA- You don’t need chicken. If you guys prefer a beef, a fish, and a veg/or seafood, go for it! People can make chicken at home…who’s going to make crabcake on the regular?
