We are also doing sit down- there will be cocktail hour, salad course, intermezzo, main course and dessert. I think the entrees will be a choice of steak, chicken or salmon.

We are doing a seated dinner with a dual entree, spiced grilled fish and boneless beef shortrib with a red wine glaze, with grilled summer veggies and rice. 

For our vegetarian guests we are serving a portabello and eggplant Wellington, which was super yummy as well.

Have fun at your tasting! I loved mine, it was really fun.  🙂

We’re serving a choice of filet or salmon. It’s fancier than it sounds, but I can’t remembe their exact names.

We’re serving grilled chicken over some kind of olive salad over a square biscuit… and eye round with mushroom sauce as a second plate.  Pretty typical Argentine dishes.  🙂

There’s also a much simpler kids menu.

I really hope people enjoy the food because that was one of our primary concerns!

We gave our guests a choice for their main entree. They chose between a pistachio crusted sea bass and a braised short rib as well as a vegetarian option.

The tasting was my favorite part about all this wedding planning!

We had a seated dinner featuring a combination plate of filet of beef and crab cakes.  There was also a child’s meal for our flower girl, ring bearer, and our younger nieces and nephews. 

Because we served this combination meal, we did not offer guests a choice of entrees. However, I was aware of the fact that several of my guests are allergic to seafood, so I arranged in advance for them to receive two filets instead of a filet and a crab cake. Guests whom I knew could not eat beef received two crab cakes.  Finally, I became aware by word of mouth that one of my guests is a vegetarian, and I arranged for a vegetarian meal for him.
