    mmmmmm tacos!

    I wanted to do fish tacos, but J said his family would consider that ‘too ethnic’

    Sometimes being white makes me really, really, really, really sad.

    I like 2! if its an informal wedding.

    and not tacos, just because Im allergic to tomatos… and that would suck ultimate if I couldnt dive in because it had tomatos. meh.

    I think it depends on what kind of look and feel you want to create: tacos would definitely be casual, a backyard BBQ would bring a downhome feel to a formal affair, and a traditional dinner would class up something more casual. I voted for a traditional dinner because I’m a messy eater and the other two options sound like I would spill on something I was wearing 😀

    Either 1 or 2 would be great. Just make sure it set up  in a way that makes it easy to serve and eat without getting messy.

    I’m all about the backyard bbq….but then again, I’m biased because thats what I’m doing for my reception =)

    I like all the options, but the first two are pretty messy to eat,especially when dressed up for a big event. I’ve ruined far too many outfits in the past! I’d pick the dinner,personally.

    We are doing a BBQ for our rehearsal dinner since it is more casual and we wanted a real family atmosphere.  For the reception however we wanted something a bit more traditional.

    The taco bar would be awesome, but if you have older guests they may not get it. I’m not sure my grandparents have ever tried a taco… I would do it for my rehearsal dinner 🙂  I love the bbq. I was at a wedding last summer where they hired a professional bbq team, seriously, best wedding food ever! And memorable!

    I voted too soon!  I actually prefer an ‘other’ category because they all sound so yummy!  The taco bar is so fun, its something that I’ve never seen as a main feature (only as a lil station during the coctail hour) so that’s a plus.  I love the idea of the classiery BBQ too though.  And I think ultimately, it would be more appealing to more people, whereas tacos might not be as popular.  And the formal dinner is always a safe bet, but you threw in some fun stuff, like the cajun alfredo- love it!  We’re doing a formal dinner, because the venue is a formal place.  So in the end, depending on the type of venue, I like the BBQ.

    My friends had a taco bar at their wedding and it was a HUGE hit with everyone in attendance!  There were so many choices for toppings and it was so delicious.  Makes for a very colorful set up and it’s a lot cheaper!  I am also in love with the backyard BBQ idea, but unless you get it catered, you’ll have to ask someone to man the grill and that’s no fun =(.

    But I would also like to advocate for any veggies out there:  please have some sort of bean as the “meat” to be considerate of those who don’t, can’t, or aren’t in the mood for meat.

    I think all three sound good. How formal is your wedding, and how formal will your guests be dressed? I always end up eating BBQ with my hands (but maybe I’m just a pig lol), but BBQ is sooooooooooooo good!!!
