@dana – MMMMMM i would have to wear my thanksgiving pants to your wedding.

We had coconut shrimp, crab quesadillas, chicken/pinapple skewers, then for dinner a buffet with jamaican pepper steak, curry chicken, brown stew fish (or chicken? i dont remember) and something else very festive. Lots of plantains, beans and rice, yummy island foods. Dessert were all local and artfully prepared fruits.

This was our menu. I’m just attaching an image of the menu card because it’s easier than typing everything out, lol. Also, it’s kinda in Spanglish (some things in English, others in Spanish), and it’s all typical Puerto Rican foods 😀
