We are having a Destination Wedding in New Orleans, LA. I would like to have a nice sit down dinner orr a nice buffet dinner. My fiance wants to have a freaking boil!! I tried to tell him a bit too casual for this here wedding but he really wants this boil thing.
I told him that we can have a boil style station but he seems disappointed.
What can I do to compromise?

It is his day too so his opinions matter. What is wrong with a boil station? That seems like a fair compromise. The food does not have to fit the formality, so you can have fun casual food with any formality and your guests will be happy, as long as the food is good.

I understand. But ive compromised alot. I compromised the location big time because the last time we went to louisiana, I did NOT like anything of the creole nature (that kind of food doesnt sit well on my tummy) but I do love our venue. I have to like the food too. I think he is going to have to deal with a boil station.

Even though you are marrying in that area, you do not have to serve the spicy food that it is known for. Countless people can’t handle that much spice, especially when you have a variety of people, which is what wedding guests consist of. Serve whatever you like that you are familiar with.

@NCPwedding: New Orleans has amazing food though(I’m from Louisiana)! I’m sure your guests are gonna be expecting some sort of food that has a New Orleans flavor to it. After all, that is one of the things the city is known worldwide for.

@nursemel: Agreed! If I’m coming to New Orleans from Out of Town, I want to eat all the delicious regional foods. Same with any “food city”.
That said, OP, you should like the food at your own wedding. So if you don’t like that kind of food I think having it as a station is a good compromise.
