A lot of people do this, I wouldn’t be offended. As long as you have an option for the vegetarians (which I see you do) it’s all good.

Chicken is always an agreeable dish for guests, so I think you’ll be fine with that as the only option.  If it’s good and if there’s a veggie option for those who need it, guests will be happy.

I think it would be understandable.

Honestly, whenever I’m a wedding guest I’m way more interested in the cocktail hour appetizers than the entree, and I think that’s how most people are. By the time you’re sitting down for entrees, you’re usually already in the “swing of things” as far as the party… I think you’ll be fine.

as long as it’s a well prepared chicken I see nothing wrong with it.  I’m hoping to be able to offer people a choice but I may not be able to either.

Even if there are people who don’t like chicken, it’s not rude. It’s one of the more universally liked dishes.

@laughs:  Same here! I love appetizers.

Chicken is good. I have family members that would grumble a bit, but my motto is if they don’t eat, they don’t eat. If you were to host a dinner at your house they would be expected to eat what you provided, so why is a wedding different?

I have attended a number of events, including weddings, where there was no entree choice and chicken was served.  It’s very thoughtful of you to accommodate vegetarians, but, no, there is no rule that would require you to provide a beef or fish selection as well.

People are spending a lot of money to come celebrate your marriage, not for a plate of beef. Don’t worry about it. Throw an awesome party and people will eat the chicken!

I wouldn’t be offended and I’m doing that as well. I casually mentioned it to my family and they didn’t even batt an eye. I don’t think anyone will be mad or even think about it. only brides think about this kind of stuff!

Chicken is a safe bet as almost everyone eats it since you are provide an veggie option I think it’s fine.

I would prefer a choice, but chicken is usually pretty safe.

I think it’s fine, seems like pretty much anyone would be satisfied by chicken or the veggie option.
