    I think the Sushi chef and wine tasting is a great idea- as long as you offer guests some sort of cooked option. Sushi really weirds some people out.

    I think the sushi sounds amazing.  As long as you offer some veggie or cooked rolls as an option, or you know all your guests like the real stuff, you should be fine!

    I think the suishi and win pairing is a great idea.  Make sure you know your guests and that they would be happy about the meal option.  Having a cooked option is a great idea.

    If you are only having 12 people total why don’t you just ask your guests?

    Make sure your guests would like sushi. With ten it wouldn’t be so hard to find out but I know that for me, sushi freaks me the heck out and I wouldn’t eat it, I like my meat warm and cooked. It sounds like fun if your crowd likes sushi though!

    I said a restaurant would be better, but honestly wine tasting and sushi sound delicious.  I think the only issue with that is that while I LOVE sushi and I REALLY LOVE wine tastings, sometimes sushi + wine, particularly in large amounts, is not a particularly stomach-friendly combination, and sushi + red wine could be a little weird.

    I also think if you do go with a restaurant reception, you should own it with as blingy a dress as you want.

    Personally for me wine tasting plus fresh sushi sounds awesome. But do your friends & family all like sushi? With my Father-In-Law cooked or not cooked he will not eat Japanese period so that option would be out for us.

    I would definitely run the idea by your guests, unless you know for a fact that each of them does eat sushi. In my group of people, it would be a bad idea because we don’t like sushi, but that may not be the case for you.

    I agree with PP.  Some people are really, really picky with food.  FI’s sisters even complained about Chinese food.  Sushi is waaaaaaaay out in left field for them.  But with a small party you should be able to figure out if they would be okay with that or not.  GL

    I’m leaning towards the restaurant thing. For one, it’s super easy to book a semi-private space for a group of 10-15. You could work out a meal per head at about $30-45 easily. You could easily talk to them about adding things in since it’s a small wedding reception. If anything, you can just say that you’re a party, not a wedding to get a cheap rate. I booked parties for my professional organization last year, so your numbers would be great for a small banquet room with a reasonable multi course meal.

    Personally, I would LOVE the sushi/wine option… but I’m not sure that would be something that everyone in a general crowd would enjoy.

    I LOVE the idea of sushi and wine tasting, but I would be sure that everyone in your party likes sushi. Not everyone does.
