    Does the venue offer anything uhh…simpler?  Less fancy?  

    If all your guests are foodies, this might go over well, but I know pretty much everyone I know would be completely lost if presented with your menu.  They wouldn’t know enough about the items to know if they were picking something they’d enjoy, and I think they’d be grossed out by fruit appearing in some of the dishes

    I had a hard time choosing because everything sounds so good, but for the widest appeal I voted French onion soup, spring mix salad, and for the entree choices, beef tenderloin, salmon, and the spinach/ricotta gnocchi.

    Everything sounds awesome and very elegant but appealing! One thing I did want to note, if it hasn’t been brought up yet, is that if there are vegetarians, check if the broth in the soups (and entrees?) are vegetarian. Often, french onion soups are beef broth based. I thought you may have vegetarians since you had some vegetarian-sounding entree choices.

    how large is the wedding – we chose our venue while it was under construction with no idea of style or concept because the chef is AMAZING and I’ve worked in the wine industry so the dinner was very important to us. 

    Talk to the chef – some dishes might be better than others for him to do eg. short ribs can all be cooked perfectly for 100 plus people vs tenderloin which runs the risk of being cooked too done vs rare.

     

    It all sounds amazing – bon apetit!!
