    Having only one vegetarian option can be annoying, but it’s kind of par for the course for veggies. Sucks for me since I’m not a big fan of mushrooms or squash and they are usually prominently featured in wedding vegetarian options. Sometimes I get a meat option and just don’t eat the meat, because I like the other stuff that comes with it better than the veggie option.

    Hors d’oeurves are bite sized, plated as a single serving, and often passed (though not always). Appetizers are anything served before the meal that’s not technically part of the meal. So hors d’oeurves are appetizers, but not all appetizers are hors d’oeurves 🙂

    At a lot of restaurants you can order an appetizer as a main course and be totally satisfied. My favorite is Bubba Gumps hush puppies & shrimp plate! Could be shared with the table, but I want it all to myself 🙂 I don’t think you could ever really do that with anything considered an hors d’oeurve—unless you just want to eat 30 meatballs for dinner, lol.

    I’ve always used “entree” the same way I use main course. If I was talking about a first course, like soup, salad, etc, I would call it a starter. but that might be a regional thing.

    We’re having three courses, plus an ice cream cart with popcorn stand at the first drinks reception (immediately after the ceremony).

    Our starters are haggis, neeps and tatties with a whisky sauce or roasted red pepper and tomato soup.

    The main courses are roast rib of beef or roast fillet of salmon with flavoured butters or a vegetarian option of aubergine stuffed with a duxelle of vegetables all served with new potatoes and seasonal veg.

    Dessert is cranachan mousse (raspberry, whisky and oatmeal mousse) with boozy cream and raspberry coulis. No choice on dessert, but there is a choice of teas or coffee served with tablet (a type of Scottish sweet) afterwards.

    Then in the evening we’re having a light buffet and a cake table plus our wedding cake all served with teas or coffee.

    @pinkpriscilla: Thanks. I hope my guests will enjoy the food. I heard people complained about food all the time, so I want  to make sure there will be enough food for people. And yes,the sorbet is for palate cleansing.
