    I said yes because we didn’t have anything different catered to us, but I can’t even lie.. My parents made a McD run for me in between my ceremony and reception because I was starving!! 🙂

    We ate the same thing. I think it’s pretty rude to eat something completely different than your guests.

    It is quite impolite to eat something better then what you are serving your guests.

    Were eating the same as everyone else, with the exception of FI’s salad. He only eats Cesar salad, he cannot stomach vegetables unless its drowning in dressing. So he will have a Cesar salad while our guests have a baby spinach salad with poached pears, blueberries and goat cheese. IMO the salad everyone is having is way better than a Cesar, and I don’t think anyone will notice anyways. But to have a completely different meal than your guests, I think it’s pretty rude.

    @MrsBeck:  I think you made the right call! I would have done the same thing.

    We ate the same meal… but got the better salad.  It was totally delicious, but we couldn’t justify the $3 upgrade for 150 people.  Sorry guests, that’s a lot of money for salad!  It’s ok though, by the time cocktail hour was over, people were stuffed anyways since we’d accounted for 6-8 pieces per person.

    i don’t eat beef and i wasn’t in the mood for fish so i told my venue to serve me the kids meal (chicken fingers).  they ended up making me and one other guest (who for health reasons cannot eat beef or fish) chicken and asked me to select any chicken entree on their menu. so i guess i sort of had a different meal.

    We ate the same meal.  I would find it rather tacky and impolite to eat something better than your guests.

    We are serving filet and crab cake, with a vegetarian option for those who want it. I don’t eat meat, so I am having two crab cakes. We joke that FI will have two filets since I won’t get one.

    @MrsBeck:  My Fi and I are both vegan, but serving a traditional meal to our guests. So, needlessly to say we are not eating the same meal. My one year old niece is also being served a vegan dish, bc she has an allergy to dairy. No other guests had dietary restrictions. I think it was fair. We did not impose our dietary beliefs on anyone, and were willing to accommodate to any dietary restrictions.  🙂

    I didn’t know this was a thing. I think it’s really rude to eat a better meal than your guests.

    I think most Vietnamese weddings the head table is served something else because they have so many tables to visit after they are done eating. So they are usually serve before everyone and sometimes a modified menu.
