Yep, my Fi (and his family) are fairly fussy. I’m kinda picky myself, but they always want a ‘proper dinner’. Just try to find a balance of fun unusual options, and safe ones. At then end of the day, you’re inviting these people, and the one thing people never forget about a wedding is if the food is bad. God knows you’re paying enough for the day, so you can have whatever you want on your own plate, but try to go easy on the guests lol !!

As a selective eater myself (ok fine…I am picky!), I am willing to try new food!  However, I would probably not want to rely only on new and different food at a wedding.  If some of your guests don’t like that food, then they are either end up hungry or searching out other nearby food (which I think is a bit rude towards the hosts, personally).  Is there a way to incorporate a few different dishes in with some of the “safer” choices?  That way you get a mix of both, and no one should end up hungry!  I know it sucks to compromise on this sort of thing when it is your big day (and I certainly don’t think you should have to be as accommodating in other aspects of your wedding!), but when food costs are so high for weddings, I would definitely want my guests to eat it up and not be wasteful, simply because they don’t “like” the food.

Are the options above choices they can choose from in each category or will you be preselecting them?

I’m not a picky eater and am pretty adventurous compared to most people I know but I honestly have a hard time finding something on the menu that I would eat. If your guests are less adventurous, they will be the same.

As far as the Caesar salad option, which most people prefer, they are not served with whole anchovies, and many people who refuse to go near seafood will eat it with no problem due to that fact.

I would choose salad a, Fish a, the veggie sounds fab and I’d also choose the cheapest of the Beef and Chix bc they both sound good.

I don’t think it sounds that out there- any of those choices would be good for me! Maybe it is regional, but my guests would be really excited about that menu. I’ve heard people complain many times about wedding food being boring but never that it was too exotic. I am doing all Thai food(we are not Thai)- A curry bar, noodle bar, Thai soups, cold salads.  Those I’ve told have been excited they won’t get the same old “wedding chicken.”

Oh maybe take the bacon off of the mixed salad for the vegetarians? (I don’t eat meat so just thinking of my common folk)

I LOVE YOUR MENU!!!!!   enormous kudos for going the local/organic route —- it all looks amazing!!!!  I’m a vegetarian who tries (and doesn’t always succeed) to avoid dairy, and would probably dance on the table if I saw this menu.

CONGRATS IT LOOKS AMAZING!!!
