Best dinner had to be at FI’s cousin’s wedding.  It was buffet style and had really good pasta salad and the most tender roast beef.

Best hors d’oeuvres from another of FI’s cousin’s weddings were scallops wrapped in bacon.  Mmm, I love my bacon.

This may sound bad, but I think the thing I liked the most was the pasta at our wedding.  We had this wild mushroom sacchetti (little pasta “purses”) in a garlic cream sauce that was to. die. for. 

My second favorite was at a rehearsal dinner–the groom was from North Carolina, so it was a big BBQ.

I always like bacon wrapped scallops at weddings, so we are including these at ours. 🙂

Mexican food.  Hands down.  I attended a casual beach wedding this summer that had 3 kinds of amazing tacos, guac and chips and quesedilla.  It was very simple, but absolutely delicious.

Since I don’t eat meat, the wedding food I have had in the past has been really blah. Pasta with herbs and oil.

However, two years ago I went to my friend’s wedding his also a veggie and the food was AMAZING. Eggplant parmisian. I couldn’t finish it!

I’ve actually never attended a wedding that served anything beyond cake. But I recently attended a 50th anniversary party (does that count?) where they had a local Hawaiian bbq restaurant provide catering. I’ve never been a fan of Hawaiian bbq before but this spread to die for. The best macaroni salad known to man and I usually don’t eat it when anyone makes it, tropical fruit platter, huli huli chicken, kalua (sp?) pork, yakisoba noodles with veggies, fried rice, egg rolls, coconut shrimp. They also had a pan of homemade mac and cheese for the kids that was brought in separately and not provided by the restaurant.

my bestie had some amazing food. i remember there was these little potato appetizers that were so yummy but i was only able to have one. such a bummer. apparently it was more important to be in the pictures instead of stuffing my face. lol.

they also had some awesome paella too. the caterer was excited to make it and went all out.

I’ve never had good food at a wedding!!

I’ve always been served cold, under seasoned food! I know ours is going to top it because the food was our number 1 priority. I would wear a potato sack dress if it meant my guests left fat & happy! People always remember bad food…

I went to a wedding where they served fried chicken and mashed potatoes.  My mom is southern, so I’ve had really good fried chicken, but this was top notch!

Hmm… I don’t have a good wedding food experience. Mine will be the best … but that’s a surprise b/c I cannot give away my secret menu to the internets =P  haha

Ok well I loved the cookie I got once at a wedding. It was in the flavor of her wedding cake and looked like the wedding cake too.

My planner tells me my venue has the best vegetarian dish: Mushroom ravioli

A friend got married and had an “upscale bbq” (seems to be a common theme judging by this thread) and the food was elegantly prepared but it tasted like all of everyones favorite things 🙂 I LOVED it!

Without a doubt, it would be a friend’s wedding in NY. She had a ginormous appetizer bar of seafood and Italian. For the actual service, she had French style service, so the waiters came around and asked us what entree we would like…and I swear, they whipped it up right then and there. OMG. I talked to a fellow guest who wanted to write her a thank you note for the wonderful reception…lol.
