    I think people like to have a beef option, so I’d go with roast beef. Mmm!

    I’d do the turkey with gravy…. here’s why:

    my first pick would be baked chicken breast – but I don’t like that you’d be stuck with two chicken dishes.

    those that don’t eat fried foods might not eat beef or pork, which is why I picked turkey.

    Also – if you haven’t – see if you can try these things from your caterer.  we narrowed down our selections based on how they tasted.  I really wanted some sort of beef, but we were underwhelmed with all their beef options.

    I voted for ham…because (though baked chicken sounds great!) a different option aside from poultry might be a good idea.  I picked it over roast beef for purely selfish reasons though (I don’t eat a lot of beef!!!).  Either ham or roast beef would be what I would go with, but that is just me!

    I voted for ham based on personal preference. All of them sound pretty good though.

    I agree… you should try to go with a non-poultry if your first entree is chicken! Roast beef!

    I agree with adding the beef option. Most people like some beef at a wedding.

    Definitely do a tasting. I voted roast beef, but I have my reservations — here’s why. There are a WIDE VARIETY of preferences when it comes to how beef should be served. I have friends who prefer it basically still moo-ing; I really only feel comfortable eating something when it has the barest touch of pink at the center. I prefer cooked brown the entire way through. The “classy way” to serve roast beef is often very pink, which means the few times that I’ve gotten beef at a wedding, I’ve ended up eating side dishes only.

    Long story short — try ’em, ask if they’re comfortable cooking the beef longer for folks who prefer it well done, and/or let folks know how well your caterers tend to cook it before they RSVP with meal choices. Just my two cents!

    I agree that most people like a beef option at a wedding, and based on the guest meal selections at my wedding beef was far more popular than chicken – as in less than 15 people selected chicken.  Then again I also had a seafood option so maybe that stole the chicken vote?  But the seafood & beef were split about 50/50 so I don’t think you can go wrong with the roast beef.  I know you are concerned that people can’t/don’t eat fried food, but there are quite a lot of people who cannot/don’t eat ham/pork, so its just something to consider.

    I voted ham, just because of personal preference 🙂

     I love honey glazed ham! But I think most people would want to go with the beef option.
