erw4338:  Your menu sounds amazing and I love all of your choices! I’m seriously getting hungry from reading it.  Sign me up for some pork belly enchiladas!

We are doing food stations and I’m really excited about that, but I’m a little bummed we’re not doing a more exotic menu.  FI and I are total foodies, but we’d be more upset if guests didn’t eat something because they didn’t feel comfortable with the food.

We haven’t finalized our hors d’oeuvres menu yet, but we’ll most likely be serving:

  • Goi Cuon (Vietnamese spring roll) with peanut dipping sauce
  • Steak Tataki
  • Spinach & Baby Artichoke Wonton Flower

Food Station #1 – Carving Station:

  • Roasted Tenderloin of Beef
  • Truffle Whipped Yukon Potatoes
  • Braised Balsamic Onion Relish
  • Bearnaise
  • Soft Michette Rolls
  • Sauteed Vegetables

Food Station #2 – Sushi Station:

  • Assorted Sushi Rolls
  • Sashimi
  • Wasabi, Pickled Ginger, and Soy Sauce

Food Station #3 – Pasta Station (also serves as our vegetarian option):

  • Pastas – Whole Wheat Penne, Three Cheese Tortellini, and Orcchiette
  • Meats – Diced Grilled Chicken, Fennel Pepper Sausage, and Shrimp
  • Veggies – English Peas, Mixed Peppers, Button Mushrooms, and Sundried Tomatoes
  • Sauces – Pesto Parmesan, Roasted Garlic Cream, Rustic Marinara
  • Focaccia and Garlic Bread

Dessert:

  • Wedding Cake – 3 tiers but we haven’t chosen the flavors yet
  • Coffee and Tea service
  • If the budget allows it, I’d love to have a mini donut machine too

We have decided to do a 3 course meal, thought 4 course might be far too much. The 4th course would have been soup. Our venue gave us choices under each course and this is what we have selected and we have to find out what they will do with those whom have dietary restrictions.

1st Course: Traditional Caesar salad, Herb Croutons, Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese & Lemon

2nd Course: Char Grilled Beef striploin, roasted Potatoes, Peppercorn sauce

3rd Course: Cheese Cake sampler – strawberry, espresso & Mango

Than later in the night there will be a 4 tiered wedding cake with 4 different flavours (Lemon, Red Velvet, Marble and Chocolate…..this might change after we speak with the venue on Monday at our tasting when I ask a few questions) and a  late night Taco Bar!
