Sounds delicious! I had difficulty choosing between a burger and butternut squash ravioli at a restaurant the other night, and I went for the ravioli – it was sooo amazing! I think guests will be satisfied.

@MissJK:  It sounds delicious, but terrible for anyone who is lactose intolerant.  It’s just something that you might want to check with your guests.

I’d be more than happy with that! Although I am vegetarian! I’m sure there will be people out there who will complain that you are not having any meat, but as long as the food is tasty I really don’t see why they should have a problem.

I eat meat, and I thought it looked great until the entrees – pasta and other high starch products doesn’t go well with me, neither does lots of cheese. However, I realise that I’m a special case. As long as you don’t have people that are gluten or lactose intolerant/strict with their diets – I think it should be fine.

@MissJK:  I would definitely check with your guests first before you change anything.  As an omnivore that definitely prefers meats to veg, this is a menu that I would really enjoy eating.  Plus, there are quite a few people, like me, that have dairy allergies, but will suffer through them anyways for cheese.  However, for someone like my Maid/Matron of Honor, who is genuinely lactose intolerant, it would make them very sick.

I’m an omnivore and I would be satisfied at your wedding. It sounds yummy.

@MissJK:  Too much cheese. I would barely be able to eat anything at your wedding. I a) don’t really like cheese.. to the point where I feel like throwing up if it’s anything except parmesan or mozzarella or something very bland b) dairly makes me sick when I eat a meal sized amount of it. So yeah, I’d be missing the meat (but I guess I could live without it), and the cheese would really ensure that I wouldn’t be able to eat much.

Hopefully you don’t have any lactose intolerant guests.

I think that sounds AMAZING! And I don’t think anyone will complain about the lack of meat!

I am a vegetarian (marrying a vegan, and having a 95% vegan wedding) and I agree that it’s far too cheesy, though everything sounds DELICIOUS on its own.

 

Could you maybe have something with a little more nondairy protein (beans/nuts) instead of or in addition to the second entree? People who eat lots of meat-centric meals are used to a sustaining amount of protein and I’m sure they’d appreciate it.

That ravioli sounds AMAZING. I’d be all over that.

It’s a good idea to ask about dietary restrictions. My sister can’t eat large amounts of dairy or gluten, so it’s something to watch out for.

I wouldn’t complain about the lack of meat, but you may want to fine tune some of the cheeses, as both blue cheese and goat cheese can invoke some pretty strong emotions in people.  Perhaps more middle-of-the-road cheeses, such as a portobello-and-smoked-mozzarella ravioli (will be amazing with the sage butter sauce) and a different salad (the combination of poached pear and blue cheese is a winner, so it would be really hard to swap just the cheese there).

It’s good variety and a lot of nice flavors and colors. I would just be worried that some people will turn their noses up at the strong flavored cheeses, and with a goat ravioli and a bleu salad, that might make some people only eat the appetizer and pick around at the rest.

Im not sure the entree sounds like enough food.  I know the guys in my family would be disappointed by no meat.
