    I think if you are having a plated (or buffet) Indian dinner it will be hard on those who don’t like Indian food.

    Unless they are told ahead of time, “The only option for dinner is Indian food, so fill up on appetizers.” They may save room for dinner and be very disappointed when there is nothing they like to eat.

    ETA: voted for the wrong poll option. Meant to vote for the 1st (missed it said “local entree), not the 3rd. Keep the Samosas, they are SO delicious.

    is it a plated meal where people can choose their entree or a buffet?

    While I would be thrilled to be at a wedding with good Indian food, lots of people are kinda weird about eating “foreign” foods. I would either do some type of more traditional American dish or just make sure the Indian dishes are very easily recognizable and not too spicy.

    That being said, one of my coworkers is Indian and only had Indian food at his wedding. Everyone loved it and the only complaint I heard was that it wasn’t spicy enough! But then, his friends and family are a really open-minded group.

    I voted for the first one in relation to the fact that you are trying to make sure both sides are happy. This is something I personally would not do, I would of kept it just the Indian food but I do see that you are trying to make sure everyone gets to eat what they want.

    I am confused.  There are people who don’t love Indian food?

    It sounds like you have some of these mysterious people, so it’d be super nice of you to have a local entree, and then maybe some sides like rice or a salad that can go with either entree.

    Coming from a guest’s perspective who went to a wedding and barely ate ANYTHING due to not liking the choices, I’d suggest an Indian Entree, and American Entree and sides.  Though a potato bar sounds DELICIOUS, too! (I also LOVE potatos, so… yeah).

    There will always be someone who doesn’t like a certain type of food.  If they don’t eat anything at the reception, they’re more likely to leave early in search of food.  (We, however, didn’t leave the wedding till late, but that’s beside the point.  We also stopped and grabbed food at a Burger King on the way home.  I was STARVING! LOL!)

    The buffet idea sounds ideal.  We’re going to be putting on our website what the meal will be, for those who want to check it out.  That way, the guests will know what to expect (IF they even LOOK at the website!)
