We are having two ceremonies on our wedding day, and it’s going to be a full-day event. We were originally going to do heavy appetizers around 2pm after the first ceremony and a full dinner around 6. However, FI’s dad wants to do a full lunch. He’s paying for the lunch, so that’s fine. But I don’t know what to serve for two different meals.
Half of both meals will have to be Indian food, as ~1/2 the guests are FI’s Indian family, and some of them are pretty old and only eat Indian food. Our caterer does non-Indian food well, and we were originally planning on having barbecue, potato salad, etc for dinner for the non-Indian option. I’m obviously not going to have the same style of food for lunch and dinner, so I’m kind of at a loss. We’ve been so focused on the Indian food that I have no clue what would be good lunch options at a wedding. Any suggestions?

Are you looking for suggestions for Indian AND non-Indian lunch food?

i thought originally that you would not include non-indian fare in your options. In terms of suggestions for non-Indian food, maybe it would be a good idea to incorporate a menu traditional to your region. I don’t know, just as an example, if you live in Maine, something with lobster would be a perfect choice.

Indian food isn’t a problem – that’s easy enough for us to figure out. We are going to have non-Indian options for both meals, I’m just not sure what to go with for lunch for the non-Indian options. We would never force everybody to just eat Indian food. I like it a lot, but I can’t do more than like one Indian meal every few weeks haha.

For lunch, serve what is typcally eaten for lunch where you live , in the season in which your wedding will be held. Mugs of soup, grilled cheese sandwiches, sliders, etc in the cooler weather, salad, sliders, vegetable trays and dip, sliced fruit, sliced meats, buns etc in warmer weather. Some things like mini quiches, pizza etc can e served year round.
