I think beef and chicken- you've got your red meat and white meat. People are sometimes funny about fish.

I think the tradition choice is fish and beef- but I think you should go with whatever is the tastiest. I am having lamb and fish at my wedding. YUM!

beef and chicken, b/c it'll cover the most people.. I'd chose the fish for myself, but there are so many people that don't like fish..

I just had this same problem :) I eventually decided on beef and chicken.. The fish choices sounded so delicious but everyone advised me that chicken is more of a crowd pleaser..

No, but it's coming up, which is why I ask.  Here's the thing...they only let us try 3 entrees.  I guess I'll (we'll) pick one of each to try.  That doesn't seem like much though huh?

I'd definitely go with the beef as one item. My personal choice would be to pick fish as the other option. Even though both chicken and fish have a tendency to get dried out when cooked in large quantities, I'd still rather eat the fish.


While I hope it doesn't happen, perhaps think about which one would still taste good if it got cold... it often happens at weddings. I can't think how many times my entree was cold when I got it at a wedding.


Oi, I don't mean to sound so negative. Go with which two taste the best. Don't stress about making sure you please every guest!


Good luck!

we did Beef and Chicken. Fish always smells funny to me.


NOTE!!! I found out at the last minute that one of our guests is allergic to ALL poultry AND seafood (he cant even SMELL seafood) so we had to give him 2 steaks (he was happy) but it would be a good idea to have a back up order of maybe 2 of each just in case!

our venue is like that too.. only 3 choices.  i couldn't decide between chicken and fish, so i asked around to ppl who would be coming to the wedding.  i know my dad and fiance have an aversion to fish (they dont like the smell), so i thought chicken was safer.  do you have any idea of if your crowd is a chicken or fish crowd? :) if that makes sense..

Okay... so I am a good person to ask because I am allergic to almost everything! lol I cannot eat red meet and I didn't eat fish until very recently. I also allergic to gluten so I can't have pasta, breads... or anything with flour in it! (this was just found recently ... )


So, I would do a Beef and Chicken option ... it seems like a safe bet!

I know that chicken is the safest bet as most people will eat it, I have never had a "wow" chicken dish at a wedding. Usuallys its the same old stuffed chicken breast. I would go with beef & fish. Im doing a choice of filet mignon or baked stuffed shrimp (my caterer also said that when picking a seafood shrimp was pretty safe because more people are like to eat shrimp then a filet type fish such as swordfish, salmon, etc) Although personally I LOVE seafood and if I had my way my reception would be a sushi feast

I'm going to be completely honest here...I've been to many, many weddings in my lifetime and can say whole heartedly, I've never had a good chicken breast at a wedding --- NEVER! I love beef...and hate fish...but know lots of people like it. It's also a good option for vegetarians who eat fish, because pasta can get a bit boring.

We went with a combo entree of chicken and beef - two reasons - one, I didn't need to get everyone's entree choice, and two, I knew we had more than a few allergic guests coming - oh and three I HATE fish!!!!!!
