Soo we are having our wedding in the fall and what is better than Thanksgiving dinner!??! I just thought it would be neat to hear some ideas about fall type foods everyone may be incorporating into their dinner for reception. Sooo what is everyone having for dinner??

@Creasetul: Aww, that’s cute! We’re getting married the Friday before Thanksgiving, but we’re having Tex-Mex, which was the cheapest option aside from BBQ, and the best way to kind of please almost everyone. We’ve got a lot of vegetarians (myself sort of included), some vegans, and some major meat eaters, so with the taco bar, we get to have something for everyone for less that $10 a person. I thought about Thanksgiving dinner, but I couldn’t find anyone who could cater that to such a large group for what we could afford to pay, so tacos it is! Best of luck with the Thanksgiving dinner idea and congrats on your upcoming wedding!

We are having:
- Chicken francaise
- Ham with a demi glaze
- Roast Beef with gravy
- Penne vodka
I can’t remember all of the apps we are having, but they’re not really fall related.

We’re having two buffet stations.
One with BBQ pulled pork and chicken and sides
and the other is a carving station with beef tenderloin and ham!
Then we have plated and passed Hors d’oeuvres- fairly normal things: raw bar, asparagus, pastry puffs, scallops and bacon, and whatever else we checked off! lol
Not quite fall food, but certainly comfort and homey food. If we were doing a sit down dinner I’d love to serve beef stew, delicious baked breads, pie- YUM!

I want nostalgic food… but, we’re having a brunch reception, so it won’t be dinner food 🙂
I do know that there will be champagne glasses of milk and cookies! It is a MUST for me LOL

We’re not having “fall” type foods either. We went with a what we could afford:
French sauce Chicken, rice peti poas, veggies, dinner roll and a dessert (we have to choose). We’re also having 3 apps per person (have to choose those too).
Fi wanted Thanksgiving food for the Rehearsal Dinner. I don’t want to cook T-day dinner the night before the wedding.

We had a fall wedding last year but we didn’t really have any fall foods, for the catered part of it anyway. We offered chicken cordon bleu, grilled NY strip steak and pasta primavera as our meal options but we did give all guests an apple pie as their favor and had an apple cider donut/mini milk carton late night snack. We also offered Sam Adams Oktoberfest as one of our draft beer options.

We were married last year in the fall, and the served dinners were not fall inspired per se. However, we did serve both regular and spiked apple cider with cinnamon sticks. Everyone was grateful, since the cermony was outside, and it was 60 degrees =/
Our dessert table was fall themed with mini apple pies, pumpkin cream cheese whoopie pies, caramel apple cupcakes, pumpkin cheesecake cupcakes, and smores cupcakes.
And our cake was pumpkin spice with cream cheese icing…
I am so excited for fall now!!!!!!!!! =)
