I need some feedback on the combo we are choosing for our wedding. I was thinking a meat combo–chicken bernaise with either a roast beef au jus or with shrimp. any thoughts on either combo? sides will be mixed vegetables and some kind of potato. thanks!

As much as I am a shrimp nut, I know if at least 10 people attending our wedding who are allergic to seafood. Just something to keep in mind.

I love shrimp! That would be my choice, but pvaulter makes a very good point about shellfish allergies. To keep it safe, you might want to go with the roast beef!

I think shrimp sounds like the tastier option, and as long as this is not the only choice you’re offering, you should be fine.

thanks all! what if i did more of a lighter whitefish instead of shellfish? or even salmon? would you still prefer shrimp? we are having nearly 300 people attend, so i know it’s going to be impossible to please everyone, but you know how crazy we all getting trying to do just that! 🙂

i think fish and chicken are your safest bets if you have that many people attending. i can’t think of many people w/ allergies / religious beliefs, etc that forbid those two.

ooo, we had chicken and salmon as one of our entrees, which is what i had, and i really loved my food! also, my caterers said that i can make minor changes for those with allergies or were vegetarians – i had a few fish vegetarians, so they got an all fish plate. i bet you can do an all-meat plate for those who are allergic to shrimp or fish – just check with your caterer.

I think either the fish or shrimp sounds amazing. I would be a little concerned about shellfish allergies, but those that had it we knew about beforehand and were able to come up with an alternate solution for them. Salmon is probably a safer bet though and there are some amazing sauces that can really jazz it up.

I’m not sure where you’re located, but here in the midwest you have to have a beef choice. So I would say either the beef and chicken or beef and shrimp.

shrimp sounds great to me! I’d go for chicken & shrimp, but I’m not a red meat eater, so i’m a little biased.
