I have posted about our menu before. We decided to add a vegetarian option. We added jumbo cheese stuffed shells with marinara. Our other options are sliced roast beed in aus jus and zesty herbed chicken. I am debating on whether or not to get rid of the chicken. I have heard mixed reviews about the chicken from other people who have used the same caterer. Some like it, some didnt. It’s basically chicken breasts in italian dressing. Fiance will eat chicken but he isn’t a huge fan of it anymore. So if I eliminate the chicken we will also save about $500 or more.
Here’s the menu.
Sliced Roast Beef
Zesty Herbed Chicken Breasts
Jumbo Stuffed shells with marinara

if your only other choices are beef or veggie, then i’d keep it. do they fix chicken any other way? or could you do a fish dish?

You have two main dishes without the chicken, I think that’s plenty! Who doesn’t like stuffed shells? There’s definitely something for everyone in your menu.

IMO, if you were only to choose one meat, I would go chicken over beef (since Chicken is more widely liked.)
If you really want the beef, then yeah, I would stick with the chicken too.

I don’t like red meat, but I would be fine with the stuffed shells and salad.

Lots of people can’t eat dairy, so that eliminates the stuffed shells as an option for a lot of people. I think chicken is always the safest bet. I agree with finding out if maybe they can fix the chicken in a different way. I wouldn’t eliminate it, though.

Fiance and I both love us some red meat. I do however prefer the pasta over the beef. I just don’t want to get stuck with a crap ton of chicken leftover. They do offer some other chicken options like chicken cordon bleu, chicken parm, chicken stuffed with broccoli and cheese, fried chicken. Their other options besides chicken and beef would be baked ham or roast turkey.

I work for a caterer, and what we’ve done for many parties is if the host tells us how many vegetarians there are, we plate up that many of the vegetarian options. Then the host doesn’t have to give up their regular entree options to accomodate that.
So why not find out in advance approximately how many vegetarians you have coming to the wedding, and ask your caterer to set up the stuffed shells plates for just those people? Then you can keep both your beef and your chicken entrees for everyone else.

We are having a buffet and they said they could have the pasta as an option if people ask for it, but I don’t want the guests to have to ask. I would like the pasta out for everyone. I plan on eating the pasta and not the beef, only because I love me some carbs.

Ditch the chicken – stuffed shells is a universally liked dish that you really cant go wrong with!
