I was perusing the wedding blogosphere and came accross this this intersting post from Serious Eats about imposing the dietary restrictions of the bride and groom onto the wedding guests.
Myron and I will be picking out the menu for the reception at the end of the month and I have to confess I didn’t think much about the dietary needs of our guests. To the best of our knowledge, none of our guests are vegetarian and though I know we have a few that don’t eat pork, I don’ t think that there will be anything that would prohibit the guests from being able to eat something. From a cultural standpoint, I think my people wold have my hide if there were no protein served!!
We are fortunate that our package covers 3 appetizers (2 cold and 1 hot), the salad, a starch, a vegetable and 2 entrees OR an entree and a carving station. Bread, coffee, tea, soda and water are incuded standard.
A few months ago, I took a little time to sketch out some sample menus but I haven’t run them by Myron yet. When we were looking for venues we tasted the food at our venue’s sister property and it was pretty good. I think the folks that come to our wedding will leave full of good food and drank. We like to eat well, so they should too.
If you were getting married, would you choose your menu based on your preferences or would you take your guests into consideration??
From the guest standpoint, what annoys you the most about the food at weddings?
