not “wow” per say about one specific food, but I really enjoyed an extensive buffet with manned stations – like a carving station, handmade pasta, sautee station, where they cook or slice right in fron of you. looking into having that at my wedding.

We went to a wedding last month and they served a chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes, and topped with a cream sauce. It was the best food I’ve ever had at a wedding and probably the best chicken I have ever had period.

We went to a wedding about a month before ours at a small Inn with about 40-50 guests.  Everything was amazing!

The standouts were the seared scallops, done 3 ways (ap) and the halibut (main).

Their passed ap’s were pretty stellar too.  Lobster roll puffs, brie and carmelized pear on baguette, bacon wrapped shrimp… yummmmm.

The best wedding food was a family-catered wedding I went to last year.  My aunt made her famous meatballs and my cousin made her sausage and peppers.  It was an Italian theme.  The food was phenomenal.

As far as wedding food served by an actual venue, I’ve never been particularly wow’ed by anything.  Except my own venue’s food at our food tasting in February.

Well, I’ve been to a wedding where I said “wow” about the food, but not necessarily because it was awesome. I went to a wedding where the dinning area was in a large room and then the buffet was set up and stretched through two smaller rooms. It was way, way too much food for the approx. 65 guests; perhaps they intended for us to work up an appetite during the two hour long cocktail hour. Somehow the selection wasn’t that great, or instance, they had several dishes that used the same marinara sauce and most of the options were carbs. I doubt that anyone even ate anything out of the second room because who would have room on their plates?

We went to Destination Wedding in Hawaii at a 5 star resort. The food was actually better than the same chain here on the mainland AND the ingredients were all locally sourced and unique to the region. There was the wedding dinner itself (YUM!) but the Rehearsal Dinner was a full-on private luau with all sorts of poke, local vegetables, poi and lau lau, as well as a full hula performance with multiple songs/acts (?). AMAZING! Our tummies hurt after a while because we just kept eating and eating (the luau was AYCE) and going “WOW!” Yes, we told everyone we knew afterwards how awesome it was. Haha.

We went to a wedding in March that had a wedding cake that looked just like a normal multi-tiered cake, but it was actually insanely good cheesecake!

@Paigey:  lol, “shit my pants fantastic good.”  That made me laugh.

I’ve only been to a handful of weddings, and I have to be honest and say that the food at my own wedding was the best.  Not that it was anything super impressive, but it was all fresh and delicious and we got a lot of compliments.  And people loved how many desserts there were to choose from, other than our cupcakes.

We went to a wedding in CT, about 250 people. Filet Mignon was an option and when we RSVP’ed we had to put down how we would like ours prepared. FI’s filet was cooked just as he specified and the waiters even came around and offered to wrap up meals that were left unfinished so the guests could bring them home. They even offered second helpings, it was crazy.

@baileyryan12:  Where was the wedding?  My wedding was in Dallas, and my venue was known for a chicken dish like the one you described!  I wonder if they’re one and the same.

We went to a wedding where they served Croation style chicken and lightly breaded, pan fried whitefish. It was the best meal and Fiance and I still talk about how delicious their food was!

I went to a wedding last month that had insanely amazing food – it was a plated, sit down dinner but we got our choice of 3 different entree options (not like I generally experience, where you have to make your choice months before on the invite – but the servers actually took our order when we sat down at the table, which was sooooo nice). I ordered an amazing asian-inspired black cod dish. However, after tasting my fiancee’s steak, I wish I had ordered that! It was one of the best steaks I have ever tasted and was perfectly cooked (which I find is uncommon at weddings). The appetizers and the other 2 courses were really great too – very different and with great presentation. It was obvious that food was very important to this couple!! It was great 🙂
