We just had our tasting and everything tasted great. It’s a beat off-beat for wedding food, but I figure I’d rather have great food.
We are serving Messina salad, four cheese ravioli, and pork chops with gorgonzola butter.
In comparision, my FMIL said she served chicken, beef and Polish sausage at her wedding.
What do you think? Too non-wedding-ish?

I think it sounds great!
(And hello to a fellow July 09 bride) 😀

I don’t see a problem with your choices. Is it a buffet or are those sit down choices? Are you trying to do something off beat? Or did it just work out that way? If it was me, I’d probably offer some sort of beef… to keep the heartier eaters happy. But I don’t see your choices as being inappropriate. They sound yummy to me.

How traditional or non-traditional food seems depends on where you live. Southern must-haves (e.g. groom’s cake) are completely different than Wisconsin must-haves, West-coast must haves, etc. Maybe it’s a city thing, but I think YOUR menu sounds more wedding-ish than your FMIL’s! Serve what you want and don’t stress about it (my FMIL suggested the church ladies make ham sandwiches for the reception!)

Thanks guys for the quick feedback. We are having a lunch restaurant reception, so that’s already a bit untraditional. The food is served family style, so platters of food will be brought to the table. I don’t think there should be an issue with any of the hearty eaters looking for more. In fact the restaurant coordinator said she’d bet us money that no one leaves hungry. Also with the meal is yummy bread, mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables.
I also though Polish sausage was a weird wedding choice, but they are Polish and usually have it at holidays.
