It all sounds great to me except the Pear pasta purse. I would definitely be going for the vegetarian entree, but am personally grossed out by fruit bits in any savory meal.

There is a lot of cheese on the menu, I would probably get rid of the cheese platter and have a different pasta side dish than mac and cheese.  I love me some cheese and would probably still eat it all, but might regret it the next day!

I don’t think you really need a third main dish, but if you want to add one what about a fish option?

You may have quite a bit of cheese in your menu, but everything you listed has such different flavors, that I don’t think I would be bothered by it.  Goat cheese has a very different flavor than gorgonzola, which has a completely different flavor than the melting cheses you would use in a mac and cheese.  Plus, there is enough non-cheese satisfying foods where if someone does have a problem with cheese, they can eat other things.

The only thing I would think about doing is cutting cheese from things that don’t need it; IE if your bruschetta has mozerella on it, I would leave it off.

Karebear53015:  I love pear and gorgonzola together, but not sure how I feel about it with pasta? Usually a “purse” refers to more of a puff pastry…which would be divine…might this be the case?

Regardless, I think it looks great. I’m a vegetarian so I’d be thrilled, but even my meat-eating FI would be completely satisfied.

I would eat everything that you listed! Especially the tres leches cake- that’s what we want at our wedding, it’s to die for!

I am a bit confused, are the two main entrees the pasta purse and the chicken, and everyone gets the sides (salad, taters, m&c, and veggies)?

Maybe add a beef main course?  

Although… I am a steak-eater through and through, but that pear and gorgonzola purse sounds amazing and I probably wouldn’t pass that up!

This sounds delicious, don’t change anything.  I’d eat every single thing and go back for seconds.  I don’t think you need more meat.  Everything sounds very filling and there’s already chicken and meatballs.  Let’s face it- you can’t please everybody, and the menu does a pretty good job of pleasing the majority.

Karebear53015:  We have a choice of three main entrees – filet mignon w/ mushrooms, parmesan and herb crusted halibut, and vegetarian stuffed shells (pasta shells stuffed with portobello, zucchini, squash, ricotta, etc. w/ roasted red pepper sauce). We’re also doing a salad as a first course. Our appetizers are mini spinach pies, pesto-stuffed mushrooms, coconut shrimp, and prosciutto- and fontinella-wrapped asparagus (plus the standard cheese, fruit, and veggie displays). While I am vegetarian, my FI, my family, and his family are 90% meat-eaters. My family in particular is Italian and would freak if we didn’t have at least one hearty “meat” option! If my FI and I were paying for everything ourselves, I wouldn’t worry about that as much; however, since my parents are paying for all of our venue, catering, and bar related expenses, I wanted to humour them as much as possible with regards to the menu. We agreed early-on to do half meat, half non-meat on the apps, and to do one meat, one fish, and one veggie entree (I enjoy seafood occasionally).

However, I think your menu is fine the way it is! Chicken with lemon and butter is fairly standard – I don’t think even the pickiest of eaters that I know would have an issue with that.

Karebear53015:  I am a vegetarian (so are my parents) and I do have a recommendation for another entree — there is this recipe at which is AMAZING. I’m not sure how much leeway you have/options with the venue, but these are great! Even meat eaters love them — my SO eats them very happily. My thought was trying to point towards flavors which are mexican, so including spices like cumin. However, I think your entrees look amazing and I think there is a great balance, considering the bride is vegetarian, lol. I don’t think you should worry too much about what people who eat meat will think — I can’t count the number of weddings I’ve been to where my food has been awful (portabello mushroom cap on a plate, literally) and I don’t think anything you listed on your menu will be inedible/unappetizing for anyone.
