    lula0508:  I love salmon, and I notice you don’t have a seafood entree, so that would be my pick. You might not like trying it though! The veal would also be a good option.

    As for the other stuffed chicken options, I would stick with something simple like the mushrooms. I think the seafood stuffed chicken sounds tasty, but a lot of guests might not find that appealing.

    How many entrees will you have at your reception? We actually tried several chicken dishes and seafood dishes, as we knew we wanted three options. We ruled out several items that we both liked to make sure that we had some things that would please most people. So, if you will have two entree choices for your reception, I might try two chicken and two beef dishes. If you are having three options, I would try chicken, beef or pork, and seafood.

    In the end, I was glad we tried several chicken dishes, as we chose something we didn’t initially think we would pick. We ended up adding the stuffed shrimp to our filet, so lost the seafood option. We ended up with a chicken, filet/shrimp, and a pasta entree.

    I’d be tempted to try the pork out of your choices, but it would depend on how many entrees you can have for your dinner. I’d be careful with the fish, though. I grew up on trout- where I lived it was very popular. Where I live now, most people have never eaten trout. Similarly, I assumed everyone who liked fish liked salmon and was certain it would be one of our choices- then, I started hearing from many people that they did not care for salmon. I feel like out three entress at least gives people choices.

    I’d enjoy almost anything on your menu! Have fun- enjoy!

    lula0508:  We ended up a little safer than I thought. We tried to find enough variety for everyone. We initially had no plans for a vegetarian entree, as our caterer would have allowed us to pick three mains, but would have allowed us to offer a vegetarian meal for anyone who wanted one without it being one of our three main choices. We had planned on a beef, chicken, and fish option. We ended up with filet mignon with Rhode Island seafood stuffed shrimp, an amazing chicken dish (one that neither of us originally thought we would pick), and a three cheese ravioli with a pink sauce. 

    I’m happy with our choices, but I do think about some of the more off-beat options that were really appealing to me, but might not have been appealing to everyone else. Regardless, I feel like we have a good enough variety for everyone, we chose dishes that I know they can execute well for a plated dinner, and their food is really good.

    Good luck!
