Wedding Food: Should These Dishes Be Banned?

Bon Appétit

Wedding season is in full swing and apparently the staff at Bon Appétit has eaten one too many bad sit-down reception meals. In retaliation, they've created a slideshow of 16 foods they believe should be banned from weddings — do you agree?

We agree with their nomination of a dish like crab cakes, which doesn't adapt well to the mass production required in wedding catering. And it's true, chocolate fountains and fake wedding cakes aren't our style either.

But as budget-minded party planners, we don't think there is anything wrong with serving crudités and dip, or cheese and crackers at a wedding. Likewise, if your budget requires you to serve cheap wine, we aren't going to judge you.

Take a look at the list and let us know what you think. Do these foods deserve to be banned? What are some better alternatives?
