Ok so I think in my lifetime I have been to like 30 weddings, kinda a lot for how young I am but here is my delema or confusion. Why is the food the same at every dam wedding? I get it roast beef or chicken gotta have the salad and potatoes. I have had enough I know I will get married one day ( hopefully soon) and I want my wedding to be different. I know some of you out there have had some unique weddings. Please fill me and give me some ideas to make my reception different.

I was at 2 separate receptions in the past year & they both had awesome food! One was catered by a BBQ place. They had BBQ ribs, BBQ chicken & plain grilled chicken, along with a bunch of different picnic salads, regular garden salad, relish tray, mashed potatoes, rolls & butter. The other had filet mignon and grilled chicken, along with roasted potatoes, garden salad, relish tray, rolls & butter. I really enjoyed the food at both. I know it's hard to afford filet mignon unless you're having a small reception but BBQ chicken & ribs plus a plain chicken for those weirdos like my sister *grin* who don't like BBQ is a GREAT choice!

I want to let you know about the worst reception I've ever been to! I drove 3 hours for this wedding, stayed in a hotel, gave them $100 and they literally had a meat tray, chips and a cash bar. I even had to pay for my store brand diet pop the bar stocked. ICK! If all you can afford are cold cuts, have a desserts only reception. Your guests will appreciate knowing ahead of time that they should eat at a restaurant first. LOL Basically, I drove 3 hours, spent $300 (gas, monetary gift, hotel) and starved.

We didn't have roast beef or chicken at our reception. We had different. We had our wedding reception catered by Fazolis. It is a quick food pasta place. And it was terrific. We had 3 different kinds of pasta. Marinara, alfredo, and Alfredo with broccoli and tomatoes. we had salad 2 dressings ranch, and italian. Unlimited breadsticks which were YUMMY. We had the Submarino sandwiches. FUN FOOD!

Nice idea I would have never thought of that. I might just have to keep that in mind. Was it very expensive?
