The wedding I went to last month had caprese salad,( as well as the wonderful chopped salad!), lasagne, chicken parmesan. And bruschetta as an appetizer.

This among other things.

Our engagement dinner was italian, salad, small apps and a choice of salmon in a plum sauce, chicken caprese and a pesto flank steak. Our rehearsal dinner will be irish and wedding italian again. Roasted veg, parm risotto and a choice of Gorgonzola crusted steak, portobello chicken and pan roasted halibut. Not sure about the vegetarian choice.

Our caterer was “modern Italian.” Our entrees were roasted chicken breast with orzo, baby carrots, and wild mushroo madeira sauce, herb roasted rack of lamb with truffle mashed potatoes, asparagus, and port reduction sauce, and house-made pesto ricotta ravioli with roasted tomato basil. It was all delicious ๐Ÿ™‚

Following because we are planning on having our tiny wedding reception/dinner (maybe 15 people max) at an Italian restaurant.  I can’t decide if we should do the prix fixe menu (similar to what is posted above) or just let everyone order off the menu.  We are not fancy eaters and I want everyone to be comfortable/happy with their meal.  I suspect ordering off the menu may also be cheaper!
