Skip the salad.  You did a good job of talking yourself out of it.

Salads have always been a staple at weddings I’ve attended but it’s true that they’re often not that great. I’m picky when it comes to salad so unless it’s a pretty badass caesar, I probably won’t eat much of it. We served “salad bouquets” at our wedding which were yummy and displayed pretty cool so I was happy we had that course. If you don’t think your guests will miss  it then don’t bother. However, it make take away a bit of the formality of your dinner, if that’s something that’s important to you.

I personally love salad but I would be fine if one was not served. I think if you feel the money can be allocated in other ways which would suit your needs better than by all means skip the salad.

I didn’t have a salad course at my wedding (I did have soup), but I didn’t have a typical wedding meal either.

I say skip it, I don’t think it’s a big deal not to have one. Add some greenery to the main dish instead.

I might notice it was missing, but I wouldn’t miss it.  🙂

I can’t think of a single memorable salad from any wedding I’ve ever been to.  Yeah, there’s usually one there, but if you skipped it I wouldn’t miss it.

I personally love salad,but usually ai get to a eat a few at weddings as other people don’t like it as much as me. The key is to have the dressing on the table and let people dress it themselves. It’s a minefield as most people don’t like at least me common salad veggie.

I recently hosted a charity banquet where we cut the salad to save costs. No one noticed, or if they did, not a single person mentioned to anyone on the planning committee. Considering we had a committee person at nearly every table in the room, they would have overheard anything discussed at that level. Not a peep.

Most of the time we all eat too much when we are out anyhow. You are having appis as your first course , so they can easily do without salad.

Where I’m from, no one serves a full meal at a wedding ao I’m not familiar with what other groups of folks would like or not. That said, if you really don’t want it, then skip it. No one will miss something that isn’t there.

Skip the salad. Take it from a woman who makes 270 of them at a time on any given weekend from march to november…. there are other things that money can be used for.  Most of it gets thrown away any way, or people don’t think they are allowed to eat untill it untill the bride and groom are eating, and by then the mains are comming out.

skip the salad, the cooks will thank you.
