Wedding Menu

CCE Tasting

These menus are only suggestions. In fact, we specialize in customizing menus that fit your needs and are designed specifically for your Notre Dame wedding.

Wedding menu tastings are scheduled three to four months prior to your wedding date. The menu tastings include your choice of two salads and two entrées for up to four guests and may be reserved for a weekday lunch or early dinner with two weeks advance notice. The menu tastings are not scheduled on or during major University events. Your final menu selection is due two months in advance of your wedding date. You may offer your guests a choice between three entrées, with the same side items, at no additional charge (for anything above three entrée options there will be an additional charge). In this case, guest place cards must indicate individual entrée selection. Quantities of each selection are due with your final guarantee count ten (10) days prior to your event.

Special Dietary Arrangements
