I have to choose my wedding menu and I'm struggling- please help! We have had a tasting and narrowed it down to three options for each. Veggie already decided.

Pumpkin and butternut squash soup with a Stilton biscuit
Smoked salmon on rye bred
Duck terrine

Duck breast with duck leg confit
Sea bass
Lamb cutlets

Chocolate mousse
Clementine cheesecake
Cheese board

DP says he doesn't mind and my head is going round in circles so I think whatever appeals to most people is best. We aren't having children at the wedding and it's a mix of people our age (30s) and a few elderly relatives too.

All I would eat is the cheesecake but I'm a fussy bugger.
If I was attending, I'd have to pick the soup minus the Stilton biscuit and the duck.

Smoked salmon ...festive
Lamb cutlets... substantial and can't be spoiled
Chocolate mousse... no explanation required !

Pumpkin and butternut squash soup with a Stilton biscuit
Sea bass
Chocolate mousse

That would be my choice.

I think the lamb might be more popular than the sea bass though.

I wouldn't have soup. If I was choosing I'd have either duck,sea bass & chocolate or salmon,duck & chocolate. I think offering a cheese board is nice but not in place of pudding. Clementine cheesecake sounds quite 70s.

Also it depends on season and setting. If you're in a marquee in summer compared to a barn in winter!

Going to make a very geeky tally chart...

I'd pick the duck terrine, lamb cutlets & cheesecake smile

What is the veggie option for the main?

Loubymoo27 Fri 13-Jan-17 20:17:57

Either cheesecake or mouse x

We have been no help!!

Cheese board but I'd be more than happy with the other two choices also.

It's in a fancy ish hotel in a city in March to give context.

Of those: starter: soup
Main: I'm unsure
Desert: cheesecake (but check if this is veggie)

Chocolate Mousse

Duck, lamb & cheese. But go with whatever you like to eat - you can never please everyone so you might as well enjoy the most expensive meal you'll probably ever pay for 😀

Sciurus83 Fri 13-Jan-17 20:19:41

Soup, Bass, Cheesecake would be my choice

Eebahgum Fri 13-Jan-17 20:20:05

Soup, lamb, cheesecake.

BarbedBloom Fri 13-Jan-17 20:20:14

Duck terrine, lamb and chocolate mousse. But I would eat any combination there except the sea bass.

MeganChips Fri 13-Jan-17 20:20:30

Smoked salmon
Cheese board

Starters and desserts are fine but if you are genuine about wanting something that appeals to most people then I really think your main choices are wrong. Duck, sea bass or lamb? Maybe go for beef or chicken smile

FrankAndBeans Fri 13-Jan-17 20:21:09

Yes, I'd prefer a beef or chicken 'safe' option. As it is I'd probably go for the veggie option.

All of them! Nothing there I wouldn't eat, all sound lovely. I'm no help at all! hungry now....
