Mmmm. Simple Antipasto.   Marinara, Alfredo sauces, Hot garlic bread, a nice salad, wine.  Wedding cake & spumoni?  Yes, Please!

cloe.belen:  MmMmMm… Mouth is watering. We’re also Italian. That would be a great idea for a wedding dinner. I say go for it!

I LOVE italian food so I would thoroughly enjoy that as a guest! Are you planning on including meat in the dish? I am somewhat of an accidental vegetarian and don’t really gravitate towards meat but many people consider it essential in a meal. Just something to consider!

Please add something else. If you have any diabetics, those that have low carb or gluten intolerances – they will not be able to have pasta.

cloe.belen:  We had a pasta dish as our ‘vegetarian’ option and we had like 20% of our guests order it, it was a hit! People love pasta! I even ordered the fish for our venue but wound up eating the pasta it was so good. 

I wouldnt make it the only option, but if you did a meat/low carb option then a pasta option I think that would be good 😉

Also italian carb lover here, if i was a guest and had the option for lasagna or something I would be thrilled!!

If you’re having small children at your wedding, I might have a chicken nugget meal for them rather than pasta. Small children and pasta can be a huge mess that you don’t want people in their good cloths around, especially with you in white.

I might have a couple different type of pasta options but I vote it is delicious and great.

I like it if you do something unique like cannelloni. And please don’t have it described (in menus or elsewhere) as “red sauce” or “white sauce” or “marinara”, but instead actual Italian terms like “beurre blanc” and “bolognese”. Make it sound upscale and it’ll be upscale!
