    I also think you should choose a buffet so people have more choices

    While I have only had Thai food a few times but loved it, though what I had was very spicy and not for everyone (not “hot” but spicy).  Perhaps it was just the restaraunts I ate at, but Italian seems a safer choice, as some people don’t like spicy food.  Plus since you are in Thailand, I think Italian, by a great chef, would be a nice suprise!

    I’m planning to have my wedding in Thailand too 🙂

    I am staying with the Thai theme. But am probably going to go with a buffet so guests can have more of a choice. At least with the buffet you can give a non-Thai alternate dish for guests who would rather something else.

    Italian is the safer choice as pp mentioned about Thai food being spicy. I voted Italian because with the background on the chef, you know the food will be great. Most people can find something they love with Italian food.

    I just want to point out there are plenty of dishes you can order that aren’t spicy, so that should be a nonfactor in your choice.  You be surprised at how easy people aviod eating local food when traveling. So I think going thai an be great for your guest, but either would be a good choice.

    If I travel to Thailand for your wedding, no matter how good it is, Italian food would disapoint. If your guests are staying at the ressort, they can choose to eat at the Italian restaurant but I would serve a Thai buffet and be sure to include a noodle dish for non-adventerous eaters. I just came back from having lunch at a Thai restaurant.

    I say Italian buffet, but that’s because a) I love Italian and b) I really don’t like Thai food.

    OMG I love Thai food.  I’m also a total wimp about spicyness, so don’t let that sway your decision.  Italian sausage can be pretty spicy sometimes too Tongue Out

    I voted Thai, but a Thai-Italian fusion would be a pretty cool idea.  However, unless you or FI has Italian heritage, I think Italian food would be out-of-place at a Thailand destination wedding.

    As a guest at a DW in Thailand, I’d want to see Thai food.  I’d be disappointed with Italian, even though I’m sure it would be delicious.

    Go with a buffet with lots of options so picky eaters and people who aren’t familiar with Thai food can try the different things and find something they like.
