I strongly dislike pork in any form but I would never use my eating preferences to gauge those of guests (I’m super picky)! For whatever its worth I don’t like any type of seafood either. And I don’t eat beef often enough for my tummy to easily digest it. I’m all for chicken!

Since you are offering a vegetarian option I wouldn’t worry about not offering the fish.

I would definately eat pork as would my Fiance. I think that is nice because I think most peolple like fish a whole lot less.

I don’t get what she’s upset about.  If people don’t want pork, then they can have the steak or sweet potato souffle.  I think more people like pork than fish IMO. (Although I LOVE fish!)

And yes, Fiance would pick the pork but I would have steak ;o)

I would choose the pork!! That sounds delicious and your Future Mother-In-Law sounds craaazy!!

I love fish too, but I think your menu SHOULD reflect your tastes!  I think people will be just fine with it!!

If those are the meals you want, I say go for them. You have a veggie option which is what is important.

I would have picked the fish over the pork, but honestly, I wouldn’t have cared because I had two other options! The veggie one sounds so yummy 🙂

Dude…you are offering steak AND a vegetarian dish. Your Future Mother-In-Law is being silly. I think pork is probably more popular than fish…well in our area anyways. I’m always scared of fish at weddings–it has to be cooked perfectly or I can’t do it.

I would leave it. If your SO wants pork, have pork! My SO LOVES pork. Loves it. Almost as much as steak….

I’m one of the people who would normally order fish, if it is offered, but I would just order the souffle. Not a big deal at all. My Fiance would probably order the pork.

I think that you should keep it as it is. If no one else eats the food, you and Fiance will and it’s your day anyway.

I love pork! It’s pretty much my favorite thing ever and I would totally pick it over some smelly fish.

Actually, that entire menu sounds delicious! I’d eat it all!

I would eat pork more likely than eating fish.

We’re having pork as one of our options!  And we’re psyched about it!!  I have no idea why your Future Mother-In-Law thinks everyone hates pork and likes fish, but I have no reason to believe that’s true.  If it were me, I’d have the steak, because I heart steak, but I would be tempted by the pork as well.  It all sounds delish!

No, but that’s because we’re veggies, and I just want to say I love your veggie option – if pork is what you want, then go for it! It’s your wedding.

I think you menu sounds great. I know plenty of people who love pork, and if people don’t they have another option. I would keep your menu as is.
