How does this menu sound to y'all?

We're meeting with the venue caterer soon, and after looking at prices, we've decided on this menu. What do you think?

Appetizer:
Caesar Salad and Dinner Rolls

Main Course:
Chicken Cordon Bleu
OR
Roast Beef

Dessert:
Candy Bar and Wedding Cake w/coffee and tea

It's nothing too fancy schmancy, but would you be happy with that if you came to a sit-down dinner? Our budget isn't "sky's the limit", so we're trying to find nice, but reasonably priced options.

ETA:
Our Children's options are chicken fingers or mac and cheese.

  • No, that is not OK. Unless you serve filet mignon, lobster, napoleons, and truffles topping local organic spinach, your marriage will be invalid and you will be a meretrix.

    just kidding, of course

    That sounds great! I don't like fancy food, and the straight-forwardness of that menu is wonderful to me. What vegetables with the entree?
  • Thanks EJ! The guests would get green beans and potatoes. They also have a wonderful menu for my two family members with Celiac, which  makes me super happy! :)
  • Do you have any vegetarian or vegan guests?  What will they eat?  

    I really dislike caesar salad, and I don't think I'm alone in that.  Can you see if the venue can also offer the salad with an alternate dressing?

  • We don't have any vegan/vegetarian guests. We are able to ask the kitchen to make a simple tossed salad, as well.
  • I think it sounds great!  Like you said, it isn't super fancy, but nobody said it had to be.  I find a meal that is good is far more important than a meal that is fancy.  Your guests want to celebrate with you and your new husband, they can go to a restaurant if they're out for a 5 star meal.  It's more than enough to feed your guests!

    The only thing I'd say is make sure there's good sized portions, or that people can ask for seconds.

  • I'd offer a vegetarian option anyway. Otherwise that sounds nice!

    I like it. :) The only thing I would suggest is that you go with a tossed salad and let guests choose their own salad dressing.
  • I like the menu. I wouldn't change a thing!

  • Sounds great to me. I love chicken cordon bleu but I also know people who eat chicken but not ham or beef, so I'd add a vegetarian option.
