    I vote HELL YEA!!

    I love buffets (picking out what I want to eat? um yes) and mexican and something different than the predictable plated dinner. I love this idea! 

    Here I am toasting my glorious nacho fountain as it began to flow with nacho cheese, hahaha

    (and my mother behind me there… she thinks I’m nuts)

    We did mexican buffet…but ours WAS more casual, so I don’t know if I can respond in an unbiased manner. I think DELICIOUS food is more important than how “fancy” it is perceived to be. I mean…what IS “glamourous” food?

    Another fan of Mexican here!  We had it for our rehearsal dinner and it was so amazingly good, our bridal party said we should just cancel the caterer for the wedding and have the Mexican food again.  So I’d say it was a hit!

    I actually think that it works pretty well with the Old Hollywood vibe. I mean, Mexican food is pretty casual fare now, but it would have been much more exotic and novel if your wedding actually was in that era in Southern California. I am not saying pretend that it’s something it ain’t, so to speak, but I think you can easily pull it off as an intentional choice.

    I think you should think Yum factor instead of Elegance factor with the food at any wedding.  Something people will enjoy and feel satisfied after eating.  I vote heck ya!!

    @Bridesy13: I am going to a mexican restaurant for my rehearsal dinner. It doesn’t fit my theme but who cares the food is amazing?

    Mexican food= yes.

    Mexican food and formal out door wedding= weird. You’re right it doesn’t fit, match, and does clash.

    I don’t see how a type of food can match or not match a venue. 

    The style of how it’s served maybe…like if you’re having finger food bbq’d ribs at a formal wedding then yeah, it might not work.

    But I really don’t see how a buffet of Mexican food is different than a buffet of chicken and potatoes…

    Go for it!
