Hello! My fiance and I are struggling to decide on our Wedding Breakfast. We wanted to try and save a bit of money and not give choices. But trying to decide food for 90+ guests is very hard and if we're already spending a lot...I'm thinking the bit extra to give our guests a choice should just be spent to ensure people like their food. But then on the other hand I think we are spending a lot for people to come...they should be happy regardless! Can I ask what people's opinions are for not giving a choice?

There are a lot of couples that don't offer a food choice now due to cost. It is completely up to you, if you want to please everyone the best way to go is normally a soup, main would be like a roast dinner and then most people are easy with puddings. Hope this helps :)

I'm not planning on giving people a choice, not only because of cost but because of it getting more and more complicated. People are still likely to not be happy unless you give them a huge choice as there is always 1 person....

I would be careful about not giving a choice as there may be people who have dietary requirements you might not know about (H2B's cousin's hubby is strictly gluten free and we wouldn't have known if it weren't for a family dinner once) and then there's the people who chose to be vegetarians as well!

We are not giving a choice. Any dietary requirements we will cater for and we have a veggie option. My husband to be and I decided what we thought most people would like. we have gone for a tart to begin with followed by chicken finished with profiteroles. If they don't like it they don't have to eat it.

We are planning on having a carvery as I come from a family of picky eaters, which is the same price at our venue. Is there any way of doing something similar? If you have an evening buffet there will always be something that the pickier eaters will eat!
