How is the food served? If it’s a plated menu, you could just have an option – Chinese or Western meal.

@Abctofu:  I am Taiwanese and my husband is Caucasian – I totally get it.  He is exhibit A of not eating shark fin soup / abalone / and the appetizer plate.  In my past experiences, the rest of the dishes that come are enough to keep everyone full of food.  What if you also serve Chow Mein or Fried Rice (or both) on the side, just to make sure that everyone has enough to eat?

All that being said, I’ve never seen Chinese & Western foods done in one go at a wedding reception, and I’m just not sure how that would go about being done logistically speaking though if you could make that happen, it would be pretty awesome! 🙂

I have the exactly opposite problem with our menu. Our banquet is traditional heavy with seafood. The menu is very flashy. My fiance and I are ABC, most of our friends are non-asian and not accustom to weirdness of some of the dishes in menu. Geoduck? Abalone?The restaurant said we can adjust the menu for a few tables which our friends will be. Right now looks like half of the stuff have to go. I only know to take out Geoduck and add a t-bone steak! I don’t even know what the restaurant will have for a more western menu. 

Don’t you love it when your parents don’t let pick out the dishes because they are paying for it. *sigh*

@abctofu Hi, I was wondering what did you end up doing?  Did you incorporate both menus for your wedding?
