@musician32992: I can do without the pretentious salad that inevitably has fruit, nuts, and a weird cheese in it. What’s wrong with doing a nice caesar or green salad?! I don’t want organic baby aragula with goat’s cheese, walnuts, and dried cranberries. Yuck.
I second PP who said stuffed chicken breast.

@musician32992: We really truly do NOT want anything to do with chicken, but we have people that are picky eaters. It won’t be stuffed though, we are putting our foot down on that detail. We are offering rosemary beef tenderloin, salmon with a peach+burbon glaze, and chicken piccata. These may all change but it’s a good starting point.
I am fairly sure Jordan Almonds were made for people who want to loose teeth. I’ve never had one where I didn’t think I broke a molar.
You anti-mushroom people should have porcini mushrooms!! They may change your mind.

Only as a giggle, (and truly
not meant as mean), but I would actually be kinda hungry at your wedding. Fish and pork are two of my least favorites. I can force down wedding chicken/steak…..
HOWEVER, there are always exceptions to rules and your food may well be the best stuff ever!

I love chicken piccatta, my mom always makes it. The last wedding I was at had a delicious bruschetta chicken with a balsamic reduction- that’s the PERFECT chicken dish to me!

To answer: my singular rule is generally, I don’t eat fungus (mushrooms) and I don’t eat mold (Bleu cheese).
(I am, unfortunately, one of those irritatingly picky types. I try to eat a bit, smile and be appreciative….it’s not my host’s fault I’m so unsophisticated 🙂 )

I hate Jordan almonds, I’m substituting with M&MS 🙂

@musician32992: My inner fat kid does not understand phrases that include “food” and “hate”.
The only thing I can think of is Jordan Almonds. That’s mostly because my friends have the mentality of teenagers and would probably use them as projectiles though.

My inner fat kid heard “mashed potato bar” from one venue and almost lost her mind.

My inner fat kid salutes you. We’re having a bacon bar.

That was my SO’s one of two requests: bacon on something, open bar.

Agreed. I think if it’s traditional in your culture there’s nothing wrong with having jordan almonds, but I think they taste gross & don’t see the point, so they have no place at my wedding!

Bacon and booze..what could possibly go wrong. I wonder if I should have barf bags as favors.

Hate Jordan almonds and flaky appetizers (like turnovers) because they are messing. But I did love our black cake…we had to have it we married in Jamaica after all! Lol!

Did no one say steak? I hate steaks at weddings, they are always cooked too much, cold and tough. That’s one of the only things I prefer in a buffet; the carving station.

I am surprised so many people hate Jordan Almonds – I LOVE THEM. And my dad super loves them, as in he always gets them for gifts and they don’t last a day. So I said we definitely have to have them.
I just hate most seafood (except salmon!) and mushrooms, and there are always some sort of scallop or something gross like that and filled mushroom caps at weddings it seems. Often they hide, looking like something tasty, and I grab one thinking I’ll like whatever it is, then have to somehow dispose of the grossness without getting caught…
