So I can pick 3 entrees from a list that the venue gave me. I want 1 option to be vegetarian, so then out of beef, chicken, fish, I can pick 2.
Is it totally strange not to have a chicken option for guests?

I think more people would choose chicken than fish, so I chose beef, chicken, and vegetarian.

Do you know what dishes would be served for each option? I would agree that more people would choose chicken over fish, but I think it would also depend on what the options are.

I would need to know how they would be prepared before I could choose. We are not having chicken or fish. We are having baby back ribs and cornish hens.

I did Filet Mignon, Salmon Filet and Vegetarian

The fish options I’d choose from are seared atlantic salmon w/ chive puree and red onion confit, or pan seared sea bass w/ sweet pea puree.
The chicken option is sauteed chicken medallions w/ wild mushrooms.

mmm….those are tough choices.
My first thought is to go with the salmon just because I think more people like salmon than sea bass and my reason for not picking chicken is that when I think of wedding food, chicken is what comes to mind, and for me, I don’t want to be like everyone else. Also, wedding chicken can sometimes be tough.

I definitely vote no chicken. That’s what everyone serves! I say beef or fish all the way.
I think @kr13is had the ideal menu!

There are a lot of people who don’t eat beef who may or may not eat fish. I think you have a better chance of having happy guests with the chicken option.

We had the same choice of 3 entrees. We went with a beef dish, chicken dish, and vegetarian pasta dish. I think you’ll get more people wanting chicken over fish.

I voted chicken, but after you listed the options I personally would prefer the fish choices (I hate mushrooms!)

PS. Another reason I vote salmon- it is classier, IMO. People eat chicken all the time. I also think of chicken as a budget option.

I went for fish. I think that you’re risking a bit more with chicken, because IMO it’s harder to mess up making a fish meal than a chicken one. I think it’s a little more special (and neater/easier to eat) because it’s not an every day food. That being said, if you have lots of children at your reception, for example, you may prefer to do chicken b/c so few kids actually like fish! Just a few thoughts 🙂

I voted fish. Normally I love chicken (I hardly eat beef etc) but after reading how it would be prepared, I think I would be more likely to eat the fish (I don’t eat salmon, but the others sound fine). Something about “medallions” has never appealed to me, and when added to mushrooms, I know I wouldn’t eat it. Plus, like everyone else has said, everybody has chicken.

I look at it like Steak is a heavy option, chicken kinda medium, and fish and veg are both light. So in order to balance the menu out I would do Steak, Chicken and Veg.
