@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.

@Mrsdickinson:  I like all the second options better for each course.

Hey There, 

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 think that sounds like a delicious meal, and a fairly safe one at that….

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.
