I’d personally prefer the Apple Walnut Bleu Cheese salad, but I know several people who are allergic to bleu cheese, so I’d be wary of that (as far as cheese allergies go, it’s the most common).

For the entrees, I’d choose Slow Roasted Prime Rib, Chicken Parmesan or Chicken Marsala (I really like the latter, but the former probably has a wider appeal), and Eggplant Parm.  For the seafood dishes, it’s kind of a toss-up, because on one hand, seafood has a very strong odor that many people can find offensive if they’re not eating it.  On the other, for your vegetarian guests, the seafood dishes might open up another option (some vegetarians are ovo-lacto or ovo-lacto-pescetarian, and will still eat fish, but just call themselves vegetarian for the sake of simplicity), so that could be a potential plus.  It would really depend on what you know about your guests and their dietary restrictions.  If you did want to sub in something else, I would suggest dropping the beef option.

DoubleA903:  I would prefer a greek salad, but I think for most guests either tossed or ceasar is a better option.

My meal choices would be: Prime Rib (usually more tender than NY strip when being catered in mass quantities), Chicken French, and Eggplant Parm (Pasta Primavera is a good option too).

Prime rib, chicken francaise and eggplant parm 

If it were my wedding, it would be chicken francaise, stuffed salmon and eggplant parm


Eggplant parm because you could likely cater to a someone veg with a gluten free allergy too. 

I would choose the spinach salad.

By The Way, we didn’t do fish… as whenever someone has ordered fish in the past at other wedding receptions, they were hungry immediately after as the fish was not filling. We also debated a pork item, but went with the beef and chicken since we figured most people would like one or the other.

Our venue was also very acoomdating to those with food sensitivites – especially when one meal for sure needed to be gluten free.

greek salad.  but i say pick the salad you and you FH want to eat not the one that will make guests happy.

i would pick the prime rib option.  DH would pick a fish option. 

I would say, do 1 meat, 1 fish, and 1 veggie.  Then worry about the exceptions later.


Just an idea.  I had people pick their meals ahead of time on the response card.  Every person got a seating card.  On the seating card, I had a picture of the food they ordered so the staff would know who got what.  It was easy for everyone and the guest didn’t have to remember what they ordered.

Prime Rib

Stuffed Salmon 

(Unless you have a lot of veggie friends then swap salmon for Pasta primavera.)

DoubleA903:  Apple, walnut and blue cheese salad. Slow roasted beef. Stuffed salmon. Eggplant parm.

One meat, one fish and one veggie seems like the best way to go. It all sounds scrumptious!
