@musician32992: 

I love the pie table idea! Very unique!

I hate chicken dishes at weddings. I always eat chicken at home.

Chicken, chicken, chicken. Blah!

But there are only so many things people can eat, and chicken dishes are popular.

I hate stuffed chicken breast, parsley potatoes, and green beans! Yuck. Top it off with yellow sheet cake and I’m leaving your wedding to buy dinner lol

I would never do a chicken breast.  I think it is ordinary.  We are doing a pork loin with apple reisling sauce and a herb crusted cod with lemon butter.

I totally respect whatever people choose is best for them, though.

This might be more cultural than “traditional wedding” in general, but we’re Italian and we REFUSE to have pasta/meatballs/any other Italian food at our wedding (okay, except for antipasto). We eat it all on a regular basis and really don’t want it on our big day, too.

We aren’t doing any salmon or chicken.. we’re having a large pasta buffet instead.

@Soon2BD-CBee:

It’s like a big rectangle single-layer vanilla cake.  Like from the grocery store bakery.  

@musician32992:  

Not sure if this counts, but jordan almonds.  I never want to see them at a wedding again.

@musician32992:  we’re having a huge pie bar too – FI and I looove pie! we’re ambivalent about cake, but are having it anyway but in a unique non-vanilla flavor – raspberry chocolate marzipan.

We also didn’t want to do the generic chicken breast with mashed potatoes, so we are upgrading those two to cornish hens stuffed with wild rice and a mashed potato bar served in martini glasses with about a dozen fun toppings. so excited about our menu!
