Are there Koreans on both sides?

I think the food sounds yummy and I think the fact that there are some pretty general beef options will help a lot.

Are you prepared to accomodate vegetarians?

This might sound like a stupid question, but are you or your fiance Korean? If you are then it all makes sense, if you aren’t then yes I would be rather confused. I do not mind trying new foods, but to be completly honest, if I knew your menu before hand I would probably also eat before hand, because I wouldn’t know if I would like anything that was served, if anyone else feels the same way it may end up in a tonne of waste.

I went to a vietamese wedding this summer and all the food was of their culture. Although I didn’t care for some of it, it was quite interesting. I think as long as you let guests know in advance that traditional Korean food is being served and have a menu at the table with what is being served, you will be fine. Your menu actually looks pretty good!

i personally would like just about everything (though i dont know about the barley tea or the fish 1st course), but i don’t see it going over well with a crowd.

i agree with the above question- is your family korean?

also, i’d offer another option for the entree besides the short rib. some people just don’t like beef

 

sounds delicious, though!

………..please invite me to your wedding.

I LOVE Korean food and think that’s a great looking menu!!  It would be a good idea to know if there are any extremely picky eaters among your friends and family.. but I think everything there is basic enough and wouldn’t look intimidating to try, except perhaps the raw fish but you have another option so it should be fine!

Your menu sounds delicious. I love Korean food.

Someone is always going to complain about the food at your wedding. Your family is Korean, these foods are traditional for you (not to mention yummmmmmmy), and if you and your fiance are happy with the menu, that’s fine. Spread the word that it’s a Korean menu and if people don’t like Korean food (or more likely, have never tried it), they can eat ahead of time if they’re worried they won’t have enough to eat.

My only suggestion is that maybe you guys might consider doing the bibimbap as a main rather than the second course, if your venue/budget will let you have two mains? I feel like because it can be customized, and contains pretty familiar things (the veggies or with fried egg, or with beef and the rice), people might feel more comfortable with it since they can more easily eat around anything they don’t like? It’s a pretty accessible food, even for non-Korean food lovers. That’s my only thought. Otherwise, yum!

This is hardly an adventurous menu, IMO.

It’s your wedding, do what you want. Looks much tastier than the wannabe gourmet food I’ve been served at like every wedding I’ve ever been to.

Sounds delicious (and thanks for making me hungry!). I think your plan is great, you can provide veg if needed and they can order from the hotel if they wish. The dishes are pretty generic in terms of there being a cooked option, and rice and veggies.

Yes, I would and my FH would. But my immediate family would not.

I think it would help alot to have a menu, explain what everything  is, and ll the ingredients. My parent’s main issue is not wanting to eat spicy food. Maybe its not spicy but they would still be worried.

I say since you are Korean and your Fiance likes the food then it isn’t weird and I agree to let FI’s side of the family know before hand.

At our wedding we are having Puerto Rican food because I am and my family loves it as does Fiance, but we are also having American food for his side and Veggie/Vegan food for me (a Veggie) and a number of Vegans on my families side.  And something for the kids.  It’s going to be buffet style and my friends and family are helping with set up and what not so its much easier to do.

I think your menu is great, I don’t eat meat though so there wouldn’t be much for me to eat altough I saw you said there is some veggie that can be done.  Every wedding I’ve been to with the typical food has always been disapointing.  And I think it would be rude for someone to ask for a different menu unless they had a dietary restriction but letting them know before hand elimates some awkwardness for his family so that would be fine.
