    mmmm…. artichoke hearts! I voted for #2.

    Honestly, they all look really similar – you could probably take elements from each and create your own. πŸ™‚

    Ok, I’m a vegetarian and I loathe mushrooms…but I am very intrigued by recipe 1, it actually (gasp!) sounds good! I cannot believe I just used the words mushroom and good in the same sentence (twice)

    How much time do you have before confirming the menu with them? I would try them all out and see which one you like best.

    There are a couple of amazing ones in the Moosewood New Classic cookbook. I made one for Fiance when he came over for dinner just before we started dating πŸ™‚

    I am non-veggie but I know from experience (about 4 years of being a veggie) that I absolutely HATE mushrooms!

    This may be too much of an accomodation to make but I’d like to throw it out there for you anyway.  I’m a vegetarian, but I also do not eat dairy or egg product. Would it be really inconvenient for your veggie dish to not have those two items in it? The reason I ask is, a dairy and egg free veggie dish caters to all vegetarians, not just lacto-ovo.

    To answer your question though, I like option 2… artichoke hearts and mushrooms are my two favorite things in the world.

    @MmeSilverBullet: {That wasn’t really helpful…}

    @SaraRocks: I love mushrooms, but my favorite stuffed mushrooms have artichoke in them, so I’m voting for #2!  But #1 and #2 both look really hearty and filling, and I would enjoy eating either one as a guest!

    Many people abhor mushrooms, regardless if they are vegetarian or not. The fact that you are the bride is moot, as many brides say they never end up eating anything. As a proper hostess, you need to make sure that what you do provide is something that your guests, not you, will enjoy and eat.

    I’m not a veggie, but I am a fussy eater, and for example if a menu offered say, a fish option and venison or veal, then I would pick the veg option, but TBH if the veg option was mushroom (shudder) based, I think I’d chance the fish!

    That said, I’m sure your guests won’t be as fussy as me!

    Umm…Sorry about my non-helpful answer. Let me rephrase. I guess the least of 4 evils would be #3?

    @SaraRocks: you’d be surprised at the number of people that will opt for the vegetarian meal if given the choice.  i also thought no one would pick the vegetarian choice (your options are chicken or veggie), but a lot of people have been responding with veggie, even those who definitely are not vegetarian.  so what other folks have said about vegetarians not liking mushrooms/you need to pick something your guests would eat, not just you is probably very relevant.

    I voted for #2 in the poll, but it was a close choice between that and #1, so your idea  of incorporating eggplant, artichoke hearts and roasted red peppers into the filling for #1 sounds fantastic and the best possible choice. 

    I think that since you love them, you should absolutely have stuffed mushrooms as your veggie meal. If you are planning to ask guests to choose between the meals in advance, I recommend explaining that the veggie meal is a stuffed mushroom, so that people will know and can make their choice. 

    Alternately – would it be possible to bake a serving of the filling in a little casserole dish? A stuffed mushroom with no mushroom? If so, you could make that clear, so people who do want a veggie meal but do not want mushroom could have that as a main dish. With that, mashed potatoes, appetizers and a salad I think it would be plenty of food, even with no mushroom.

    Mmm.. they all look super good, I’m going to try a couple of those recipes. I’m not a vegetarian but I would probably order that instead of the meat option. I love mushrooms! I like #2 or #4.
