@Tetiana1987:  I’d be excited!  The food is representing your culture.  The way I see it is this-It’s one meal of people’s lives.  If they don’t like the food, they will get over it!  But I honestly think your FI is overreacting

@Tetiana1987:  I understand the dilemma here, but if he was uncomfortable with the idea of it, i would go ahead and let them bring the italian chef in also to accomodate some of the italian heritage into the food as well.  I think that would be the best bet.  I’m sure some of his side will be indulging in your ukranian heritage as well!  Good luck hope all gets well .

Normally, I’m super excited to go to weddings where the traditions and food are from a different culture. But… I’m gonna be super honest… my good friend’s wife is Russian and I’ve been to Russian restaurants with them as well as eaten her mom’s home cooking (which is said to be stellar) and it is VERY different from anything else I’ve had and takes some getting used to. 

If his family is *very* Italian, they might balk at non-Italian food anyway. I would consider having a buffet with both options available if it were me. My FH is Filipino and I’m Mexican and I totally plan to have both cuisins represented!
