I rarely eat red meat or fish as I don’t particularly care for it.  I’ll eat it if it’s the only thing being served, but I wouldn’t be thrilled about it.  This is the reason I like buffets, it let’s me choose.

I totally agree.

A good guest eats what is served, unless they have dietary restrictions, and a good host tries to accommodate restrictions within reason (actual restrictions, not the “I’ll eat portabello but not button mushrooms” kind of picky)

I actually rather enjoy the surprise, but that’s me 😉 When I go to weddings, I’m honoured to have been invited and very happy to eat whatever they serve me.

Surely if they don’t eat red meat, they can pick the veg option? I don’t see it as a big deal.

As long as they get a vegetarian option it shouldn’t be a big deal. We had a sit down meal with no entree option. We chose chicken becuase we figured that would probably be the most accepted form of meat. We made sure to chose mashed potatoes and a vegetable medly for the sides. No one complained. In fact, many of our guests came up to us and said it was the best wedding meal they have ever eaten.

We are doing a duet plate for our entree and haven’t had any problems with it. Our venue doesn’t do the standard two-choice protein entrees. I actually like the idea that you get to sample both proteins instead of just one. I’m a pescatarian, so I’m planning on giving Fiance my beef. Most of our guests eat both, so it’s helpful to know what your guests may like. We picked beef and salmon. Chicken, while it’s a safe choice, is always disappointing when it comes to wedding food in FI’s opinion (plus chicken will be served as one of the hors d’oeuvres).

We had our tastng a couple of weeks ago and it was delicious. If your guests eat neither meat or fish, they’ll have the vegetarian. As a pescatarian, I always try to be a gracious guest, eat what I can and just be thankful for the invitation.

I would be fine! I am a vegetarian so as long as I have that option I’m all good!

I would be fine with this, but I suggest that you include the menu with your invites and let people know that the veg option is available so that if they don’t eat fish or red meat, they can be sure to request that

it wouldn’t bother me. i’m not a big fan of red meat, so as long as i also had chicken or fish i’d be happy. even if red meat was the only choice, i would eat it anyway because i hate wasting food.

we didn’t offer any options at my wedding either and there were no complaints. everyone loved the food!

Wouldn’t bother me. I’m not a picky eater at all though haha. 

I’m avoiding thinking about the food. I think we’re going to do plated dinner, with a beef and a chicken option. ORRR we’re going to do a pasta buffet, with like 5 different types of pasta, including chicken and beef that you can put on the pasta. 

Blargh thread jacking. But yeah, I wouldn’t care haha

@buzzer713:  Would food stations be an option? I see them as a happy medium between a buffet and plated. Then people won’t have to wait in long lines and go up to the station they are interested in.
