We need to pick two of the following three:
1. Chicken (any preparation)
2. Salmon (any preparation)
3. Two kinds of pasta (any kind). A seafood pasta is an option
we don’t have any vegetarians. What do you think will be most popular? I want to go with chicken and pasta because I think they are more well-liked, and I worry about how well salmon will hold up under lights for a while. Fiancé wants salmon because he thinks it’s different, and people have chicken and pasta all the time. WWYD?

You mentioned something about the salmon “holding up under lights,” which makes me think you’re having a buffet. Is this a buffet or a plated dinner where whatever you choose the guests will need to pick one of those two options in advance.
I think the chicken and either the seafood pasta or the salmon would be the best options. That way there’s something for even pickier eaters, since chicken is a relatively “safe” option. Will you be having a tasting? That’s what I’d use to decide between seafood pasta and salmon, whichever’s better.

I agree that I’d let your tasting help you decide. What are the preparations? If the chicken isn’t bone in I’d be worried about how well it would hold up under the lights as well. I’ve yet to have a piece of chicken at a wedding that isn’t dry.

I would do chicken and pasta.
I like seafood and many kinds of fish like walleye, trout, cod, etc., but hate salmon. I feel like salmon is love or hate. I know a lot of people similar to me (hate salmon but ok with other types). If the fish was a milder fish I would vote for that, but otherwise pasta.

A vegetarian pasta option might be a good idea even if you don’t have any vegetarians. People who are dieting, on a heart-healthy diet, or eat a more bland diet might appreciate it.
While I’m not a fish-eater, it also seems like salmon is a polarizing fish, people seem to either love it or hate it. Does it have to be salmon, or is a milder fish an option?

Chicken and pasta! But this is coming from someone who hates seafood

Chicken and salmon for sure if no vegetarians.

Interesting feedback about salmon. I’ve always thought that salmon was a “safer” milder option for people who are iffy about seafood. I would choose chicken and a seafood pasta.

Would vote for chicken and salmon! They’re both fairly healthy options and I’d be happy for either of those.

Chicken and seafood pasta. Only because I hate salmon, though!
