We are not sure what we should offer for dinner a our wedding. We can offer two choices. Is it ok to offer a beef a and pasta? Or do we have to offer chicken and beef? I like the idea of having a a meet and pasta, but is it too untraditional? Please help!!

@SBoxer: i would love a pasta option for a wedding! I usually go with a chicken option because i don’t do beef at all. But i usually end up not liking the chicken anyway, but i’ve never had pasta i didn’t like!
Would you make the pasta a vegetarian option?

Pasta is a good choice but I’m not surea bout the beef since a lot of people don’t eat red meat.

Serve whatever you want. It’s your wedding, no one else’s so you make the final decision based on what you and your guests prefer, not what the caterer wants you to eat.

I get tired of eating chicken all the time, so I’d like an option other than that as a meal choice. Can you or have you had a tasting or sampled the food? That’s what would make me decide which would be better.

I dont think I have really been to many weddings that the chicken was actually good. They usually use chicken breast and its really hard to cook it right in large quantities. Its usually dry and overcooked.
I like beef and a pasta option. How they are prepared and what its served with can be very creative! Ask your caterer what he suggests.
Like the pasta instead of traditional primavera could be a pesto and artichoke heart or it could be a gnocci with a gorgonzola cream sauce with parmesean crisps.

I’d much rather have pasta then chicken usually, but never get that choice. People should be happy that you’re serving them a free dinner, do what you want!

Thanks for the great comments!! I feel so much more assured now. The pasta would be a wild mushroom and goat cheese ravioli wth wilted spinach and a light sauce. We have a tasting scheduled, so I will definitely base the decision on that! I think we would make the pasta the veggie option. 1 meat choice, one veggie options. Plus 5 differnt kinds of pre-dinner appies, a salad or soup appetizer, dessert and a late night sweet and savory table!
It’s good to hear that you ladies don’t think it’s too out of the norm! Thanks for the comments.

My only thought about the pasta is that you are paying a lot per meal for something that requires very little prep or cooking skill. It also costs the venue like 8 cents a plate to prepare and yet they charge you XX dollars per plate. If that doesn’t bother you then go for it.

As a guest, I am so sick of “wedding chicken” and I’d be thrilled with the pasta option.

We are offering filet mignon and boursin cheese filled airline chicken breast for our choices.
