2 meats vs. 3 meats...

Okay, so I'm having about 110 guests for both the Ceremony and the reception. I know everyone has different tastes, and depending on the mood may change their minds frequently before attending our event in March. I know I want at least 2 meats (oh and we are having a buffet) but I think 3 would be better. I know I want a chicken, a seafood and possibly a beef (my mother wants the prime rib carving station) There is not a "Significant" difference in the price but my Fiance' doesn't think we need 3 meats... How do you feel? Any suggestions? What did you do? Recommendations??? :D Thanks!!!

    I think that, if you have the option to offer more choices, that's always a good thing. I think a seafood and a chicken entree, plus the carving station, would be great. But I don't think it'd be a disaster if you cut it back to only two. I would just think about what your guest list would like the least and then nix that option. As long as there's also a vegetarian entree available, everyone should be able to eat SOMEthing. And there will always be someone who's not 100% happy but that'll happen no matter how far you bend over backwards for them.  For what it's worth, we're doing a beef, a chicken, a fish and a vegetarian entree. That's standard at our hall, but we're charged one flat rate no matter what people choose since they do tableside ordering that night (like in a restaurant).

    If I was a guest at your wedding, I would appreciate the seafood option.  I consider myself a vegetarian but still eat fish, otherwise I would just eat the sides.  I guess it wouldn't really matter either way, but if the price difference isn't that significant, then I don't see why including a seafood option would be a big deal.  Good luck!

    Go with the 3 options. You can't go wrong with variety!

    We aren't having a buffet but we do have a choice of 3 duet entrees with different sides for each. I think 3 meats is good...air, land and sea (or earth for veggies).

    If you have to choose just 2, skip the beef.  In today's health concious world, fewer and fewer people are eating beef.Three is great if you can manage it.
