    What about stations?  Maybe a Chinese station, a vegetarian Indian station, and a non-veg Indian station?  Salad/fruit could be a station, as well as dessert.  Make sure the elderly go first, and everyone else can go through the options by table.

    How many guests are you having? The larger your wedding is, the more chance that there will be other guests who can’t handle indian food due to stomach issues or just personal taste. I think the first option is best so everyone can choose what they’d prefer. Why does it have to be indian food for your guests, and chicken/steak for your FI’s guests, though? Can’t you do family style on all tables with both options so everyone can eat what they want. I also like the PP idea of stations.

    Were doing stations to handle different tastes and cultures!

    If you’re going to have two options I think you should just allow there to be two options and let people pick.

    I would feel weird if I knew that because I was your friend I was being forced to eat Indian food while someone at my table who was friends with your Fiance was being forced to eat another kind of food.
