Bees, all caterers in my area have plated meals cheaper than buffets. If you were to go plated with 3 selections (one meal is mandatory vegetarian), which food options would you choose and why? I’ll add a poll too because it might be easier visually.
1. Salmon, chicken & vegetarian
2. Salmon, beef & vegetarian
3. Chicken, beef & vegetarian

I would choose Salmon, beef, vegetarian just a because I’m not a huge fan of chicken.

I’d do #2. But I dont really like chicken, and wedding chicken in general is not very good.

Beef and chicken, because if they overcook the salmon, it will stink up the room.

socalgirl1689 : salmon, beef, veg. I think there should be a fish option for sure; beef usually goes over very well; and the a veg option to round out the menu.

#2. Tired of chicken at weddings. Its usually bland in taste and dry. I’d take the risk of salmon smell over tasteless chicken. I’m assuming you’re choosing a caterer experienced enough not to overcook fish. 🙂

I voted for the third option, which seems to be in the lead. My reasoning is that most people who won’t eat seafood will likely be fine with beef or chicken instead, and those who don’t eat beef or chicken will likely be fine with the vegetatian option. I feel like you’re covering all your basis. In a perfect world all 4 options would be the best.

socalgirl1689 : 3 because not many guests I had like fish. Chicken and beef are pretty safe and everyone is bound to like one or the other and for the few that don’t, there’s the vegetarian option. I also don’t like the smell of seafood so even having as an option would be off putting for me (for my OWN wedding).

One for me but I don’t eat/like beef.

DonutGirl33 : I know…all 4 choices (beef, salmon, chicken, veggie) would have been great but all caterers only allow 2 meat choices and 1 vegetarian. If I would have had 4 choices instead of the standard 3, it’s automatic +$10 per person which makes a difference when you have like a 100 guests.

socalgirl1689 : I totally get it! I’d skip the salmon, I feel like anyone who likes fish would be able to find one of the other options appealing. To me salmon is like a bonus option lol.

I’d skip the salmon too. I think beef and chicken are a lot more popular.
