    I think it would be nice to have a Thai option and also a safer option.

    I don’t see how anybody could be weirded out by Thai food. it’s so good!  are your friends or family super picky?   maybe offer a mix of different things, some of them exotic and some of them more, er “americanized”. like chicken skewers. who could be weirded out by that?

    We opted for what our guests would enjoy. You can always eat your favorite foods any other day.

    I would have loved to have Ethiopian food. But I knew most of our guests wouldn’t like it. So we went with a traditional choice of chicken.

    I don’t like Thai :/  But if you want to do both I think that would be fine.

    As long as there are some non-hot/spicy items, it could work.  I’m personally not a huge fan, so I would appreciate a safer option….but could get by if there were relatively plain Thai foods on the menu, too.

    I say get one Thai option and on more typical option. I love the idea 🙂

    We are having Asian fusion entrees at our reception.  The foods will be familiar to everyone, but just have a hint of Asian.

    Pad Thai is actually the national dish of Thailand, not just an Americanized dish. Drunken noodles are the less authentic of the two- it’s more Chinese than Thai. But who cares- it is your wedding, have what you want! 🙂 

    You could have Thai influence in your food or have some of the more “tame” Thai foods incorporated. Fresh spring rolls with peanut sauce, or chicken satay are more American-palate friendly. Grilled prawns in sweet chili sauce could work too. Papaya salad (som tam) is pretty popular in the West too. You could have a lemongrass-ginger sorbet with cake for dessert for Thai influences. 

    Just some thoughts. I love Thai food so I’m a little biased but I know how it is to handle guests who may not be as adventuous!

    I went to a wedding one where the couple had stations, some with italian, some with american, some with korean food ( they had met while stationed there).
