September 2012 Weddings

What's on the menu?

Probably way early on this one, but thought I'd ask what you ladies were thinking for food at the reception :)

My parents went for a tasting for me (since I live out of state from where the wedding is...) and we're thinking
Fruit/cheese/veggie tray, 3 passed aps (don't know what yet), salad and choice of:
- Pesto rubbed tenderloin with oven roasted tomato reduction
- Asiago chicken  with roasted tomato relish(from my understanding it's similar to chicken parmesan, but asiago obviously)
- Smoked mozarella and red pepper ravioli with roasted garlic parmesan cream sauce

We're also thinking about doing an "afterglow" of sliders and fries

Cake flavors: Tiramisu and lemon cake/3 berry compote

We need to come up with a dessert besides cake... the venue is pretty flexible. Possibly an ice cream bar. Fiance wants to see if they can do a flambe station!

What's on your menu? :)

Re: What's on the menu?

  • Cocktail hour will have three passed appetizers (1 vegetarian, 2 meat based), but we haven't picked them yet.

    Dinner will have a salad, followed by a duet of filet mignon & crab stuffed shrimp with mashed potatoes and asparagus. 

    Dessert is wedding cake with two flavors:  Vanilla with raspberry pure and vanilla mousse and chocolate with strawberry mousse.

    I am SO excited!  It's going to be delicious.

    Just because you saw it on Four Weddings, doesn't mean it's a good idea.

    I am pretty sure we have way too much food. Menu is not 100% set yet. 

    Cocktail Hour
    Stationary - cheese tray and spinach dip
    Passed - Cajun chicken skewer, Caprese skewer, mini-crab cake, beef tenderloin 

    Dinner:
    Herb de Provence Chicken, Herbed Leg of Lamb
    Asparagus, Roasted Red Potatoes, rolls and salad

    Dessert
    Cake (flavor tbd) and chocolate covered strawberries

    Food was our first priority and the place where we're getting married is primarily a restaurant. I can't wait for the tasting.

  • Just going to list what I am most excited about as far as our menu:

    Cocktail hour: mini burger station (made to order sliders with a buffet of toppings and french fries
    Desert: ice cream sundae bar (vanilla, chocolate, and cookie dough ice cream with so many topping choices) AND a venetian table

    YUM! :)

    Anniversary
  • This is our menu so far, it will be finalized with the caterer closer to the date.

    Cocktail Hour:
    Pizzettas from the Grill Station (Margarita/White/Veggie)
    Sweet Potato Fries
    Caprese Skewers
    Miniature Beef Wellingtons
    Smoked Chicken & Gouda Quesadillas
    MD Crab Cakes w/ Chipotle Remoulade
    Placed: Cheeses; Veggies; Hummus; Bruschetta; Eggplant Caponata etc..

    Individual First Course
    Spinach Salad
    Ziti w/ House Made Marinara

    Family Style Dinner
    Portuguese Pork & Clams
    Chicken Piccata
    Barley Pilaf
    Broccoli Rabe
    Roasted Fall Squashes & Zucchini

  • Wow you ladies have great choices of menus...mine is more comfort food and buffet style since its a noon wedding:

    Fried chicken
    Baked skinless, boneless chicken breasts
    Spring mix salad with two choices of dressing
    Seasoned green beans
    Steamed broccoli (cheese sauce on the side)
    Wild Rice Blend
    Dessert is chocolate cookies (came with the catering) and cupcakes (carrot cake and vanilla)

    Since almost everyone attending doesn't eat pork or beef, the chicken worked out great for everyone. The only two vegans actually were happy I did chose great veggie choices so we didn't have to do special plates just for them. Still going to see if I can at least get them fish to eat.

  • Hmm...I can't see anything?
