What food is acceptable after a wedding?

Replies in the bigoted Indiana pizza joint threads made me ask this question.

Please note I am not asking what YOU would have if you were to get married (feel free to share if you desire), but what is acceptable in your opinion for ANYONE to have after their wedding.

Thank you.

4. Thank you.

That is my feeling also. There are all sorts of ways to do things and so long as no one gets hurt and they are happy? whatever.

2. Pizza

Or pizza cake.

Or an entire pizza themed wedding. Listen up, Chuck E. Cheese, Pizza Hut, and others. There'a business opportunity you have been missing for decades.

This clown in Indiana had to have been a shill for the pizza lobby. BTW, was this guy even real?

3. Well, after my wife and I got married in 1991,

our guests consumed 12 dozen homemade tamales, along with the requisite rice and beans. For those with sensitive palates, though, we ordered a couple of extra-large pepperoni pizzas from Roundtable Pizza. The wedding and reception were held in our front and backyard, respectively. A good time was had by all.

The only problem was that so many people hung around after eating, just drinking up the beer, that the party lasted until the wee hours. A few never left, causing an awkward situation for my bride and I. Oh, well...

5. There is a second option...

Whatever the meddling parents insist be served regardless of what the bride and groom want....

What ever the groom decides because that and the music are the only things he's picking out.

13. cake and champagne. Any place, any time of day or night.

With any kind of music and dancing. Rock, Klezmer, string quartet, violin solo. No soprano singing "Oh, promise me" unless you're into retro schmalz.

I don't care what kind of food is served at a wedding.

15. We had burgers, brats and a keg with volleyball at a local park.

That was 17 years ago and people there still frequently mention how much they preferred it to catered chicken or fish typical fare in a rented meeting room.

16. Over-cooked salmon or dried out chicken is the norm.



PS everyone is laughing because the thought of having pizza at a wedding is strange, not because they don't think people couldn't have pizza if they wanted. I attended a wedding at a ball park once where they had chili dogs next to prime rib and racks of lamb. AAR, I've never had pizza at a wedding.

20. +1

But I had oysters, duck tarts, lobster cakes etc etc - that was cocktails.

If I'd gotten married in my 20's I would have done the rubbery chicken French and carving station buffet.

And pizza at a wedding when I had people coming from Italy - no way.

22. Fishkin

That's the entree served at catered events that you can't tell whether it's fish or chicken. Therefore, it's safe to call it fishkin.

Oh, and don't forget the vegetarian option. Half your guests will be vegetarians.

Anything is fine for a wedding, from pizza to filet mignon (plus vegetarian option). It's all up to you. (Though pizza is kind of messy.)

Disclosure: I have no recollection whatsoever of what was served at my wedding. Probably fishkin.

26. When and where I got married? Cake, nuts, mints and non-alcoholic punch

Usually made by pouring 7-Up over a block of sherbet that matched the color scheme.

Folks can have what they want, of course...but FWIW catering a celebration is NOT participating in the ceremony,, no matter how important the caterers think they are.

30. We had DIY wedding

We had a "come as you are", 15 min ceremony in a song bird sanctuary and then ate potluck food and drinks provided by our guests instead of gifts. We didn't have A wedding cake, we had an entire table full. Our wedding pictures came from disposable cameras we handed each guest and that they put in a basket at the end of the afternoon.
People should have whatever they like.

31. Many of my blood relatives, quite a few friends, some in-laws, were mostly interested in the beer...

,,,and campaign.

I collected many fine stories, some tales still too ticklish to tell.

32. Back in 2008 one of my friends and her fiance revolted

 

Both sets of parents were out of control, what they were proposing was gaudy and ridiculous. The last straw was the parents fighting over the date because the celebrity chef his parents wanted to book was unavailable.

They sent an email saying they were getting married that Saturday afternoon in the auditorium at her fiance's office, a party at a fancy bowling alley followed where pizza was served among other things like chicken wings.

33. A one answer poll? ... hmmm

 

I knew one girl from high school who was really a bit snobbish ... what cuisine did she highlight at her wedding reception?

HOT DOG CASSEROLE!

Err ... really? ...

Yep ... saturated in BarBQ sauce ...

34. One wedding I went to had the reception dinner at a

Chinese restaurant. We took up the whole place, which was closed for the occasion. The menu was simple. Every dish on the restaurant's menu was prepared and on a long buffet table and on huge lazy Susans at every table. It was amazing. When a serving dish was empty, more came from the kitchen. Wonderful idea.
