    Not important at all

    Somewhat important

    Very important

    THE FOOD HAS TO MATCH THE THEME OR THE SKY WILL FALL!

    Neither important nor unimportant/other

    I’ve been in a barn eating super fancy food, and in a fancy hotel venue eating sliders. No one cares about the theme. I think it’s actually trendy to do “comfort food” / BBQs at high-end venues nowadays anyway!

    All most people care about is that there actually is food!!!

    You could say that my theme was outdoorsy. We had a taco bar! Cool

    Not important at all.

    @ForeverBirds:  My theme is undersea/aquarium.

    As much as I’d love having seafood, FI’s family is kiddy-picky. I don’t mean picky as in they don’t like brussels sprouts and prefer green beans.

    I mean KIDDY picky as in: chicken nuggets, french fries, mashed potatoes, fish sticks and mac and cheese is all they eat.

    Yeah. All of them.

    ALL. OF. THEM.

    Getting Fiance to expand his palate was a 2 year project. Now one of his favorite foods is sushi and mussels. And when I mention this? They get disgusted. “Ewww what have you done to him?”

    Lady you are in your 50s. Grow up. Eat a vegetable.

    I can’t wrap my head around not eating what you want to eat at your wedding because the food doesn’t “match.” But then again, I can’t really wrap my head around a diet either. Bottom line is, if Jesus came back at your wedding reception, would you want to ascend into the sky with Rotiserie chicken or pasta?

    I definitely wouldn’t notice that a pasta bar doesn’t fit your theme.

    I think medieval food wouldn’t be a favorite ie plain chicken and potatoes, so do the pasta bar, no will even think about whether or not it fits the theme

    @Chrysoberyl:  You are more patient than I. I’d have given up on that project.

    I wouldn’t worry about it. Unless your theme is really in your face, you don’t have to match every last detail. Do what you love!

    We’re having a traditional Italian wedding, but the catch is – no Italian food! *gasp* 

     

    We know that we want an antipasto for an appetizer, but other than that our food will not match our Italian ‘theme’. We are both Italian and eat our Nona’s cooking many times a week, so Italian food just isn’t new and exciting for us haha. We wanted something different (to us) for our wedding. 

    So in short – no, I don’t think the food has to match the theme at all! I highly doubt anyone will notice or even think twic about it.

    The way around this is obviously to make the theme of the reception “food.”

    I was wondering the same thing! I’m hoping its not important at all! I’d rather have food I love.

    @Bebealways:  Well it was fun kind of because once he tried 3-4 things he realized he loved, he started trusting me more. It’s wonderful to see him always eager to try new things now!

    I just can’t get over how his family is disgusted by this behavior? I’d think parents would be proud that their child is no longer picky.

    @Chrysoberyl:  My dad’s sorta like that. My mom was a professional cook for years, whereas his mom… well I never touched her food for a reason. So there were scores and scores of foods he *thought* he hated, because his mother was a horrible cook, but then when my mom pressured him to just try a little of her version he was like “Whaaaaaat this is awesome.”
