We are trying to decide between 3 food options but I am stuck and dont know what to choose. I feel the food is a very important part of the wedding so I am turning to the beehive for some answers. Please HELP!
1. Authentic Taco Bar: Steak and/or Chicken tacos with corn (not crunchy) or flour tortillas, shrimp ceviche, chips and salsa.
2. Backyard bar-b-que: Basically this would consist of grilled steaks and chicken, salad, rolls, corn-on-the cob. Basic backyard bar-b-que items but with a tad more class. We also plan to have litte Hor dourves like berrys and brie and mini blt’s. Just to give it a whole summertime feel. For the kids: hamburgers and hotdogs to give it the right feel.
3. Traditional dinner so to speak: Roast beef, steak, Cajun chicken alfredo, salmon salad, rolls, some sort of side such as roasted potatoes, green beans, rice pilaf, etc.
Let me know which you would prefer. All of these would be catered in by professional caterers (even the bbq) lol.

I wanted to do fish tacos, but J said his family would consider that ‘too ethnic’
Sometimes being white makes me really, really, really, really sad.

I like 2! if its an informal wedding.
and not tacos, just because Im allergic to tomatos… and that would suck ultimate if I couldnt dive in because it had tomatos. meh.

I think it depends on what kind of look and feel you want to create: tacos would definitely be casual, a backyard BBQ would bring a downhome feel to a formal affair, and a traditional dinner would class up something more casual. I voted for a traditional dinner because I’m a messy eater and the other two options sound like I would spill on something I was wearing 😀

Either 1 or 2 would be great. Just make sure it set up in a way that makes it easy to serve and eat without getting messy.

I’m all about the backyard bbq….but then again, I’m biased because thats what I’m doing for my reception =)

I like all the options, but the first two are pretty messy to eat,especially when dressed up for a big event. I’ve ruined far too many outfits in the past! I’d pick the dinner,personally.

We are doing a BBQ for our rehearsal dinner since it is more casual and we wanted a real family atmosphere. For the reception however we wanted something a bit more traditional.

The taco bar would be awesome, but if you have older guests they may not get it. I’m not sure my grandparents have ever tried a taco… I would do it for my rehearsal dinner 🙂 I love the bbq. I was at a wedding last summer where they hired a professional bbq team, seriously, best wedding food ever! And memorable!

I voted too soon! I actually prefer an ‘other’ category because they all sound so yummy! The taco bar is so fun, its something that I’ve never seen as a main feature (only as a lil station during the coctail hour) so that’s a plus. I love the idea of the classiery BBQ too though. And I think ultimately, it would be more appealing to more people, whereas tacos might not be as popular. And the formal dinner is always a safe bet, but you threw in some fun stuff, like the cajun alfredo- love it! We’re doing a formal dinner, because the venue is a formal place. So in the end, depending on the type of venue, I like the BBQ.

My friends had a taco bar at their wedding and it was a HUGE hit with everyone in attendance! There were so many choices for toppings and it was so delicious. Makes for a very colorful set up and it’s a lot cheaper! I am also in love with the backyard BBQ idea, but unless you get it catered, you’ll have to ask someone to man the grill and that’s no fun =(.
But I would also like to advocate for any veggies out there: please have some sort of bean as the “meat” to be considerate of those who don’t, can’t, or aren’t in the mood for meat.

I think all three sound good. How formal is your wedding, and how formal will your guests be dressed? I always end up eating BBQ with my hands (but maybe I’m just a pig lol), but BBQ is sooooooooooooo good!!!
