Recently, we received our venue’s wedding menu packet in the mail. I was out of town at the time but when I came home, I saw that Mr. Lobster had gone through the entire menu and ticked off his likes (checks) and dislikes (big slashes). Ohhh, so *now* you want be all involved, do you, Mr. Lobster?



Food Time

After much deliberation (and trading “I’ll give you a grilled cheese for a shrimp cocktail. Done.”), this is what we’ve come up with:

Cocktail Hour (i.e. your reward for sitting quietly through the ceremony)

  • Tiny Sirloin Patty Melts – love child of burger and grilled cheese
  • Seafood Fortune Cookies – Surprise! Your lucky number is “seafood”
  • Mac & Cheese BBQ Chicken – no need for forking this baby stands on its own
  • Blanketed Frank Lollipops – pigs in blanks on sticks
  • Portobello Mushroom Steak Fries – for the vegetarians who like it fried
  • Watermelon Domino – refreshingly dotted with balsamic vinegar and gorgonzola cheese
  • Baja Fish Taco – fish… taco
  • Nuevo Sushi – fancy sushi
  • Americana Carving Station – we chop ’em and serve ’em, pork, duck, salmon
  • Wild Mushroom Station – among mushroomy things there’s mini ‘shroom pizza and Parmigiano crisps!!
  • Classic Seafood Bar – if I don’t have it I might get disowned by my seafood loving family

Since my venue does not do food tastings, I don’t have tasting photos (no worries). But here are some of the items on featured in their food pics. Super. Drool.



The Main Event (shouldn’t you should be full by now? you people are so demanding.)

  • Summer Duo of Lobster & Corn – This is a Lobster wedding, isn’t it?
  • Arugula Salad – a salad is a salad. but there’s cheese.
  • Beef Two Ways – we’re really into pairs/twins/duos
  • (or) Truffled Chilean Sea Bass – gimme that filet o’fish, gimme that fish! what would you do if you were up on this wall. If it were you in that sandwich you wouldn’t be laughing at all!
  • Warm S’mores Truffle Tart – slightly charred marshmallow peaks on a chocolate tart with a graham cracker crust!!!!! It’s like summer camp on a plate.

Wedding Cake (keep eating or else!)

  • Yellow Cake with Blood Orange Curd and French Vanilla Buttercream – boo ya

I’m getting stomach grumbles from writing this. It’s time for some snacks.

What is your favorite thing on your wedding menu? Do you have a must have or a wish list dish?

    Hi Miss Lobster, I’m new to your blog but discovered it on the weekend and since then I think I’ve read almost all of it. I actually got married 3 months ago now but my poor decisions still haunt me (thank goodness I got the groom right!). Reading your posts puts my decision making to shame. I’m looking forward to reading how your month unfolds!!

    @aliceinweddingland: fun! Glad I could help
    @fromcharleston: Thanks for asking! I am more disappointed than stressed. Mr. L was very disappointed – he likes to eat. When we picked the venue, we knew the caterer has a good reputation and I’ve been to some weddings where they were the caterer.

    @Elizabeth: welcome and thanks for reading! In the end, it’s really all about marrying the right person, isn’t it? The rest is just gravy 🙂

    Is it weird that, after reading this post, I’m starving at 9:00am (even after I’ve eaten breakfast)?

    It’s Elizabeth again (forgot to log in before). Just wish my gravy hadn’t been so lumpy… but yes it is all about the main meal and he’s Michelin standard. Enough about food, I’m looking forward to hearing more about the dress. I also wore a Monique Lhuillier and bought it at a trunk show. Bring on the first fitting post – I’m guessing it will be coming up soon.
