We have just started planning possible choices for our menu and can't all seem to agree. We are having passed appetizers and a fruit and cheese spread with various breads during cocktail hour. For dinner we are having a plated salad with a buffet. I was thinking of doing a chicken choice and maybe a pasta option for the main course. Then either one or two side options. However, I haven been told that is best to have a to beef choice for the guest. I was hoping if we do one meat (chicken) and the pasta it would cut down on cost since beef can be expensive. Also my fiance doesn't eat beef. What is your opinion? Do I need to meat choices or is chicken and pasta enough?
