Hi Everyone –
I’m going through my budget trying to cut "extras" wherever I can as things are starting to go a little overboard. 🙂 Wanted to get opinions on the main entree at our buffet – which would be at a carving station. Included in our package is a choice of turkey and ham OR peppercorn beef. I really wanted to have a beef entree, but I cannot eat peppercorns (trust me), so I was going to upgrade to an herb tenderloin which would cost an extra $250.
Would anyone be surprised or offended or think we were "cheap" if we went with the turkey and ham carving station? I’m assuming it will be like a Thanksgiving turkey and a Honeybaked ham style set up. If I did this I’d make sure the passed apps during cocktail hour were beef. (Also included in our package).
I realize I’m probably thinking about this way too soon, but I spend a LOT of time with my wedding budget spreadsheet and deleting the extra for the beef upgrade would really make me happy! Or – do I go with the peppercorn beef but not eat any myself?

Maybe it’s just me personally since I don’t eat much red meat, but I would totally prefer the turkey and ham!

I say delete away – I doubt anyone will notice and/or care!

I would rather the turkey because I usually only have it at Thanksgiving!

I say turkey and ham as well, it gives the guest options…you can eat it…and it doesn’t cost an extra $250!!

I would be happy with any of those options. And at least the turkey and ham gives people a choice (i.e. not everyone likes red meat, not everyone likes pork, and not everyone likes turkey, but most people will like at least one of turkey or ham).

I voted turkey and ham, but my Fiance would definitely choose beef or pork.

Turkey and ham…it saves you money and it’s like a 2 for 1 since you get two different meats!

I say go with the turkey and ham, because it gives people double the number of choices! =D

I prefer beef, but Id eat the turkey as well, not the ham. Is it possible you can do the tenderloin without peppercorns so if you really want it, you would be able to eat it too? But the turkey/ham does give your guests an option

Turkey and ham! Tenderloin is just another one of those "extras" that you can easily cut from the budget.

I wouldn’t think that was cheap at all.
