    I went to a wedding about 13 years ago, when I was still eating meat. Their two choices were prime rib, carved at the buffet, and a marinated pork tenderloin dish. I don’t think I had ever eaten that type of pork before (only ham) and it was delicious. The prime rib ended up giving me indigestion. It’s all in the way it’s prepared.

    Beef does say more formal to me, but I’m an easy guest so as long as I can choose something tasty to eat, I couldn’t care less if you offered beef or not. Eating is nice at a wedding, but it’s not the only thing a guest will be doing.

    I think it’d help if you gave us the full description, not just “beef” “pork” “chicken”. 

    “Penne in a porcini cream sauce with truffle oil” is a lot more black tie than “Penne in red sauce with sprinkle cheese”.  So what’s the beef description? (And even if you don’t have a menu card for each guest, I’d expect the waiter to be able to describe it in more detail than “prime rib”).
