I think you should have whatever you and your Fiance are comfortable with. My Fiance is Asian but raised in Canada, so we’ll be having American food, but a few Asian appetizers.

I wouldn’t worry about it. Everyone loves italian! What kind of ethnic food were you thinking of having originally?

My family is American and my FI’s family is Macedonian (father was born there) and his mother is 100% Native American. We agreed that the buffet dinner would be the normal chicken, roast beef, garlic potatos and all of that. But the food we are serving at the cocktail hour is all Macedonian food and sweets and some kind of weird bread his mothers tribe made as well as a lot of cookies made from molasses (sp?) and wild black berries found in my Fi’s parents back yard. It should be pretty interesting!

I think that you and your Fiance should do whatever makes you 2 happy!!

@fresitachulita: Don’t let it bother you! I’ts your and your FI’s receptions, so you can have waht you want. Now, I saw your other post and if your Mother-In-Law wanted to pay to bring in extra Samoan style food, I would probably let her do it. It could be a real treat for people that have never tried it! Maybe just appetizers or something small would be good, so that it doesn’t overpower your selected main course. But again, its YOUR day, YOU get the final call, and don’t be sorry for your choices!

I know what you mean we are having american food (BBQ) for the reception! Mostly because it was the best food we could find in our budget! 

Fi’s Family is Mexican and Future Mother-In-Law thinks that if we dont have mexican food at the reception it will be the end of the world. And acts like if we have anything else her family will get up and walk out of the reception…

We are letting her have mexican food for the rehersal dinner she isnt happy about it but it has got her to shut up…

@fresitachulita:  I’m going to have a similar dilemma so we’re going to go with something neutral that everyone can eat.
