One other note: if you have a vegan at your wedding your vegetarian option might not actually be suitable. Even if they do a vegetable soup and it’s stock is chicken or beef-based, a vegan can’t eat that. A vegan can’t even eat a regular pasta dish, because pasta is made with eggs. Just a thought!

Thanks for all the replies!
@vaness – I want to include a vegetarian option because there are several “real” vegetarians attending including my dad – so I want to make sure the veg food is actually something good and not just something random the caterer throws together at the last minute. And so they can check a real meal on the response card like a normal guest.
I think I’m leaning more towards going the beef/salmon/veg route – but I’ll see what our families think.

Personally, Fiance and I would probably choose fish because we love it but I don’t think it’s as popular as chicken. So because of that I chose the beef, chicken, vegetarian option.

Chicken is much more universally appealing than fish.

Although I would prefer the fish, I agree that you are going to likely please more people with the chicken.

I agree with the posters who have said that chicken at weddings is overdone. I think that fish is gaining popularity, and salmon is especially well-liked, probably because it’s not as “fishy” or “slimy” as some other fish can be.
Have you had a tasting of these entrees? I think that would help you decide.

I think you would please more with the chicken option…

A month ago I would have said chicken, but after getting my RSVPs back, I’d suggest fish. Our guests are mainly from Wisconsin, not necessarily the most adventurous eaters, and salmon is our most popular entree request. Out of 100 people who’ve replied so far, 43 have chosen salmon while only 5 requested chicken.

I voted beef, chicken, and vegetarian. I know many people who are not vegetarians but they do not eat red meat, and I think chicken has a greater general appeal than fish.

I did beef, pork, and chicken. No veggetarian, but only cuz I knew no vegetarians were coming. I woulda done fish, b/c I love fish, but my venue only offered mahi-mahi and swordfish–both of which, I dislike.

I would go with chicken. Large quantities of fish can get really dry, more so than chicken. Also, if you haven’t tried their fish and know that they prepare it well, it’s more risky.

Chicken “holds” better than fish, and fish can be diffucult to cook well for a large group, and chicken is probably more popular… so I say chicken.
