How many menu options does your venue allow you to choose for the wedding breakfast? We have a list of options but We have to pick one and a veg option from started and main and only one dessert option. Many weddings we've been invited to have had a couple.... Interesting to get your thoughts. Thanks
Hi we have 5 options :)
We can only choose 1 meat, 1 veg and 1 vegan x
We are having a meat or veggie option. Most weddings I've been too haven't had a choice so most people wouldn't expect it.
We're having a light buffet for the reception and a larger buffet in the evening with more dishes
We had chose of 2, we are not having dessert, my cake is the dessert
We have 6 each from starter main and desert then buffet at night xx
We could have 2 starters, 2 meat and a veggie main and 2 desserts!
We have various to choose from ourselves to have on the day but then a set menu of one choice each started main and dessert. Having looked at a lot of venues aswell you could add options for your guests but at around £1.50 per extra option per guest! I was quite shocked at that
We just choose one starter one main and one dessert, and dietary requirements like vegetarian, vegan, gluten free etc are catered for separately
We had a set menu and everyone ate the same. We were told we could allow our guests to have the option of picking anything they liked but at a cost of £5 per head. Ridiculous if you ask me.
We are deciding the starter and dessert and my guests get a choice of 2 main meals, which they need to pick prior to my wedding
Our venue gave us a menu with choice of 4 dishes for each course and so when we sent out invitations we got guests to RSVP with their choices.
Our venue did the same but I didn't like that everyone had to have the same so we went for the 2nd option which is a BBQ. xx
We had 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 deserts for our guests to choose from.
I've been to three other weddings this year - and 2 of those had 2 choices for each of the starter, main and desert the other one had a buffet style meal where guests helped themselves to what they wanted :-) X
At my wedding we had two options but it was part of a package deal. The lower package would have only had one option and a vegetarian option if required.
All previous weddings I have been to though only had one option. I belive it's your choice and it's down to what your willing to/ can spend.
We have to chose starter and desert, mains we can select a meat and a vegetarian option but have to confirm numbers before the date so we'll be asking people to confirm which they want on the rsvps
We get to choose from 4 different options but then everyone has the same unless vegetarian/child!
We have two starters, three mains (one veggie) and two desserts but we did have to haggle with the venue as our contract only included one of each. It may be worth seeing if the venue would be willing to let you have a choice if you have a lot of fussy eaters etc
We have 3 starters, 3 mains and 2 deserts to chose from. We are having a fusion wedding so had to make sure we had enough options and flexibility before booking
We pick the set menu for everyone then tailor to vegies etc
We have three choices of each for the adults and the kids have a set starter but a choice of three mains and 2 desserts as that's all the venue offers for them but we have to know 3 weeks before the wedding to let the venue know our numbers and choices. Each venue is different as I've been to weddings where the menu has been set and one where we had a choice of two options :)
We were told we could only have 1 but we insisted on having a choice of 2 for each course & they obliged with no problem so you should try to insist. Obviously it does mean you need to include the choices on your invitations & you’ll need to chase for RSVPs x
We have 1 starter, 2 mains (one veg, one meat) and 1 dessert :)
We are having 2 choices plug veggie but only after I agreed to make sure I give each persons options early. Luckily u can be bossy so will make sure I get everyone. It's also a good way to make sure who's actually coming as not everyone has RSVP'd which is apparently normal. X
Mine led me to believe we only had one option for each course but I challenged it and eventually they allowed 3 options for each course. Push them for more options hun they normally will allow it. They're banking on people being too compliant to ask questions so they save money in the long run x
We have options but have had to pay a supplement otherwise we would have had to pick 1 stater, 1 main and 1 dessert for everyone x
We have 1 option for starter, 2 for main plus vegetarian option and 2 for dessert x
We were offer d exactly the same as you however hotel allowed us to do a menu selector so we could give our guests choice of 2 starters 2 mains and 2 desserts xx
Just one meat and one veggie option.
We had the same thing, thought we could let the guests choose but then it was a one choice only across the board thing.
They said we could do choices but the extra stress would be a pain, getting people to RSVP is hard enough.
We ended up picking what we wanted but knew would please the majority.
Cheese soufflé, beef wellington and a trio of cheesecakes.
If anyone has food intolerances they will tell you but otherwise they should eat your menu ! X
We're having a meat and veggie starter option... fish, meat & veggie main and then 1 desert option, but if people don't want that they can have an adults portion of the kids desert. X
We picked one ...was less expensive
Oh and additional veggie choic
We had the option to pay a supplement to allow the choice which we did, but I think it's normal to only have one meal unless there's any dietary requirements. I worked at a hotel which had the same rule too :)
Just to point out not every venue will have the kitchen facilities to offer too many options so it's not just about them saving money. If you have a lot of fussy eaters you might be better off going for something a bit more buffet-like. Also the supplement fee would usually be to cover to cost of extra staff. Talk to your venue, if they can add more options they'll let you know. Good luck x
We were able to pick 3 items for each course for the guests to chose from. And children's menu we have 2 choices for each course for them to chose from
My venue initially said we had to pick 1 starter, 1 main & 1 pudding and they'd cater as needed for allergies/vegetarians/vegans. We asked about having more options as we felt this was a deal breaker. We agreed on a single starter and a single pudding, but had four options for the main. They just asked that we supplied numbers, details & a seating chart a bit earlier than they would have otherwise. We provided them all the numbers and created seat cards that showed what each person chose.
Hi we have 5 options ...but we need to choose 3 favourite and that’s what the guests will be offered x
A lot of venues will charge you extra for more than one choice per course. So check with your venue. X
More choices higher cost.
We had three for each course.
We have 3 options for starter main and dessert x
We can have 1 starter plus veg option; 1 main plus veg option and 1 dessert. This is quite standard. I used to be a wedding coordinator and I am quite wary of venues that offer a choice (even if it is all preordered). The reason why most venues do it this way is because it makes the service run 10 times smoother and you can’t have anyone changing their mind that way. If you want more options for you guests and buffet or bbq is a better option
We paid extra to have choices for starters and main, 2 starters and 3 mains options and everyone other than those with dietary requirements had the same dessert
Our venue offers two different packages, one with a set menu and one with a choice. The package we went for means we have a set menu and have to choose one from each course (and the veggie if required). I think it does depend on the venue but most offer set to avoid complications. If you want a variation maybe stick to just a buffet or a BBQ (depending on the time of year). Xx
Ours said 1 or 2 of each but managed to get a fish, meat and veggie main by asking xx
With our wedding package you had to choose a set menu of one meal for each course, and it was about £500 extra to be able to change it to three choices for each course. x
