Do you have more than one entree option? My tasting for my wedding is tomorrow and I am so excited to choose what my guest will be eating. We are giving them a choice between 2 entrees. We will be doing a sit down dinner. What about you?

We did a parmesan-crusted chicken and a ham choice for our entrees.

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.
