since your wedding is in november maybe a ham or turkey or both! get your mom and mother in law to make one or the other.. stuffing all those yummy sides! oh and you could always do things like chocolated covered strawberries, different pies/cakes, you could have one table with nothing but fruit with fruit dip, ect.

ooooh how about tuscan chicken. FH makes it for me all the time. It is served over pasta but isn’t a red sauce. I also LOVE pecan encrusted or parmesan encrusted chicken. Or how about chicken cordenblue [Wait maybe you keep kosher. If so I didn’t mean to offend ๐Ÿ™‚ ]   I love chicken! I have a whole wedding binder filled with over 5000 different wedding menues for every price point so let me know how tight money is and I will start digging and might be able to help you out ๐Ÿ™‚
