Our venue is a high quality Italian restaurant and the food is included! We’re having a 4 course meal.


First course: Shared appetizers such as antipasta, stuffed mushrooms, lox and cream cheese on crackers, etc.

Second course: Salad

Third course: Choice of 5 entrees, either 1 of 2 types of pasta, salmon, chicken or beef tenderloin.

Fourth course: Cheesecake or chocolate mousse (plus wedding cake!)


We actually should probably get around to finalizing our menu…

@Sweetpeaontheweddingbee7:  It was delicious! Both Fiance and I loved it and knew we had to have it as an option right away during our tasting. The kids meal was included at our venue for no extra cost which I thought was great!

@Sweetpeaontheweddingbee7:  We are having just an unreal amount of food for the cocktail hour but for the main dinner we are having a choice of Chicken Marsala, Herb crusted tilapia, or prime rib au jus (sp?) haha can you tell I don’t care that much about the beed? Also each dish comes with vegtables, roasted potatoes, and a salad. For dessert besides the wedding cake we are having a waffle and ice cream bar!

@Sweetpeaontheweddingbee7:  Thanks πŸ™‚  I actually designed them because I had paper left over from making invites, then printed them at home and used a lace punch for the top.
