(Closed) Is It Crazy to Have Chicken and Turkey as the Meal Options?

  • poll: Is it crazy to have chicken parmesan and roasted turkey be the two meal options?

    No - it is no extra cost to you and they are the best two entrees on the menu.

    Yes - you should pay the extra $300 for people to have the beef option even if it isn't that good.

    I went to a wedding recently and it had Chicken & Turkey.

    Nobody complained.  It was great.

    Haven’t read all of the replys so this has probably been said.  While I would be fine with it, rather have to good options, some older guests may not.  For my own wedding parents are insisting not only on a beef option, but paying extra for the fancier beef.  They are paying though so that’s different.

    I would tell your parents that you do not want to pay extra for an inferior meal.  If they feel very strongly that there must be beef they could offer to contribute to the cost.

    As long as there is a veggie option, which you have indicated there is, I would be totally fine with it. Chicken parm and roast turkey are both poultry but the dishes are different enough to give variety. :] And I would rather be given two of these options instead of having beef that is less than great when I order it!

    I would complain about the  beef and ask if I could have a second tasting, LOL!  Seriously, if those are the best options and prepared so differently, I see nothing wrong with the choice of  those two plus a vegetarian option.  You would be doing your guests a favor if the meat is only so-so.  People forget a lot of things, but when the food at an affair is mediocre, they seem to remember that forever.

    I would do a vegetarian option instead of two poultry options if beef cost that much more!

    I would go ahead with the chicken and turkey.  I’ve been to weddings where people had the traditional poultry and beef, and the beef is never as good.  Then, people complain that the beef is dry/overcooked/not flavorful etc.  It’s hard for a place to get beef right when there are so many guests being fed at once, so if it wasn’t that great to begin with, it definitely wont be great on your day.  Also, If someone is complaining that there is no beef, then they’re there for the wrong reasons.

    at first I though chicke and turkey was strange, but then I read that the chicken is parm – an italian option and then the turkey is traditional… so i think it’s fine. It would be weird to have roast chick or roast turkey… but the 2 meals you have are completely different.

    Can you just choose 1 dish?  I think offering chicken and turkey is a little strange.  However, I’ve been to weddings where everyone got chicken or everyone got a duet.  That was fine.

    I’ve posted before but I really hope that you DONT do have 2 poultry dishes as the choices.

    As long as you have a vegetarian option, then I think just serve what you like. But please make sure for those that are vegetarians, they know they have an option. 🙂 I’ve eaten before a wedding before because I didn’t know there’d be an option and then there was, and I’ve just assumed there would be one and had nothing to eat at a wedding before.
