    After recently being on the noro-virus diet plan, I would not be too happy to see Chipotle on the menu.

    As a guest, I would think that is fun and not think a thing about it. However, I HATE Chipotle. I will not eat it. So, I would have to eat before your wedding. 🙁

    winterwedding17:  I think it depends on you as a couple and the style of your wedding.  If you’re in a fancy ballroom with crystals everywhere, and you’re making your guest wear formal attire, it may be weird.   But, if you’re doing a fun wedding with tons of personality, and your guest know you love Chipotle, they’ll probably think the concept is super cool and unique.

    My Fiance and I are laid back and love great food, so I’m having a soul food reception (bbq, fried fish, collard greens, cornbread, texas toast, mac n cheese, etc  etc) with all homemade cakes, and a live band and DJ (our friends!).  Everyone expects to eat off of disposable plates, kick off their shoes, and jold a plate in one hand and a drink in the other, while sweating it out on the dancefloor…it’s your world, so just stay true to you!

    If the decision is soley based on your budget, I would cut back in other areas and get food that’s a little closer to the theme you invision for your wedding. Cheaper options include Italian fare, catering from culinary schools (we have a culinary high school here that caters), or looking at small family owned restaurants that cater according to your budget.  Chicken, Salad, a starch, and a side are always cheaper and basic.  Several pasta options, chicken, salad and bread are another cheap option.

    samira86:  Hahahaha, laughing at your “pleasure to dine with” comment. Not because I’m a picky eater, but my mom is. She likes everything plain plain plain. Like a burger – meat patty and bun. Thats it. It’s hilarious going to restaurants with her and hearing her trying to order.

    Why don’t you do food trucks instead? Cheaper than seated dinner and more selection for the non-burrito lovers.

    I really dislike Mexican food of any kind. It does not agree with my stomach. I’d be really disappointed to only have burritos at your wedding. I’d rather eat bland wedding food knowing I won’t get sick.

    Plus, if I see you’ve gone “fancy” with a lot of aspects of your wedding but you’re serving your guests fast food, I’d side eye the shit out of that (sorry). I just can’t eat fast food.

    I’m vegetarian and I’d much prefer chipotle to most of the meals I’ve had at weddings.

    What about food trucks? They’re another fun option.

    winterwedding17:  Go for it! I’m not a HUGE fan of Chipotle but it’s not bad, and I love the idea of more casual catering. I very nearly had pizza for my reception, but my fiance insisted that he wanted something more formal.

    go for it! we are having a taco bar for our wedding. I’m not a meal person (dont care for the typical chicken with side dishes). The other parts of our wedding will be more fancy. I’m at the point that I dont care what other people think, if they dont like it then dont eat it!

    We’re doing Olive Garden to cater and getting some nasty and rude remarks but if they want to pay for fancy food then they can do that but as far as I’m concerned no one is help so no one has an opinion

    Honestly, I wouldn’t be too thrilled. I like Chipotle well enough but I can have that any time I want on my own. It’s right across the street from my office. When I’m going to a wedding, especially one that’s sort of fancy, I’m expecting to have a nice sit down meal of something that I don’t normally eat at my desk at work for lunch. Also, everything I’ve ever had at Chipotle is soooo oniony! If you do this I hope you’re passing out mints or something afterwards. I always feel the need to brush my teeth and gargle after eating anything there.

    Big fan of Mexican but it’s not for everyone. I’ve also steered clear of chipotle after their multiple ecoli issues. I’d do food trucks instead if you want a budget dinner.
