Did you choose your menu because you liked it or the guests? What we’ve chosen we love, but I, worried no one else will, it’s nothing awful,, this is our menu:
Plum Tomato Soup with Basil Pesto
Butternut Squash and Sage Tortellini with Leeks and Caper Cream Sauce
Roast Breast of Chicken Wrapped in Pancetta Sun Dried Tomato Risotto Cake, Pesto Cream Sauce
Wild Mushroom Ravioli with Leeks and Truffle Cream Sauce
Warm Bread and Butter Pudding with a Marmalade Glaze, Home Made Custard
Warm Chocolate Indulgence Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream

@Mrsdickinson: ummmmmm, YUM! I would enjoy every bit of that 🙂
Our reception at our destination wedding is going to be basically a backyard BBQ, but at our “big” (not really that big) reception back in our home state, we are sticking to foods we like and think others will, too: hot wings, BBQ, lots of cakes, and some mexican snacks as well as veggies/salad options 🙂 It isnt a sit-down-dinner style, so it will be more like “bar food” 🙂

Your food sounds great! We chose ours based on our tastes, but also considered the guests. This is our menu:
- Char grilled tenderloin of beef with carrot puree, broccolini, cipollini onion and a cabernet demi glaze.
- Eberly Farms free range chicken with egg pappardelle, white and green asparagus, oyster mushrooms and marsala cream.
- Pan seared arctic char with braised with braised Holland leeks, ricotta cheese tortelloni, and dill, tomato, lime butter.

I think that’s a delicious sounding menu. There’s a good variety, and a chicken and pasta dish are both “safe” since the overwhelming majority of people will eat one or the other.

Its funny you posted this because I just had my tasting last week! Your menu sounds great… I have to say! My fiance and I ended up having a menu more about the food we love…It was a hard decision but we really want to remmeber the day being all about ua and our personalities/taste.. We choose and salad with goat cheese, tomatoes and beets, a starter of mushroom rositto, the Main as either Fish or Braised Short Ribs and of course the veggie option, and keeping our cake as the dessert.
Hope this helps! Congrats!

I think your menu is a nice balance between upscale and familiar; nothing on it so far out there that people will find it strange or even unapproachable.
My only suggestion would be to switch the tortellini appetizer for something non-sweet (butternut squash are a bit sweet on their own even if the sauce is savory) and non-pasta, as it is very possible for your current menu to leave a guest choosing two sweet plates or two pasta plates. Pesto, butternut squash, and sundried tomatoes are all sweet; and despite their different preparations, ravioli and tortellini are very similar. Your guests will fel more of a “wow” factor if they have dishes that are less similar to each other, as the contrasts in flavor can enhance things overall! It is not a deal-breaker, just when you’re dropping this kind of money on one meal, you want to knock everyone’s socks off.

Sounds delicious! There will always be a couple of picky eaters who you will never please, but the majority of people will love your choices. It’s your wedding and I believe you should choose what you love! I think it’s fun to share the food you love with your guests.

I like your menu, I wonder if you could add a third entree choice though, maybe either beef or fish? I realize that might be a financial decision but while the chicken sounds good, I know I always avoid chicken at weddings.
