    I think you have more risk of allergy problems with sea food, I’m between 1 & 2.

    Can you offer your guests a choice between 2?  Any one of those is going to have people who might not like it.

    I’m going to be honest, none of them sound particularly appetizing to me but I’m a really picky eater. However, if the leg of lamb didn’t have any of the stuff inside, I would have chosen that.

    With 20 guests I’d be tempted to just ask them 🙂 or maybe ask a few people that would know what everyone eats, this is usually (but not always) the moms.

    I like the Mahi Mahi option– seems more tropical and Mexico- Destination type to me.

    I think the lamb sounds divine. I have never cared for mahi.

    None of these sound particularly Mexican to me. The mahi might work, depending on how it’s prepared, but the jambalaya screams “New Orleans” and as a guest, I’d have low expectations of a Cajun dish in Mexico. Not saying it wnt be good; just that people don’t expect it to be good. Kind of like going to a steakhouse and ordering the pasta. If you’ve already decided it’s going to be Meh before you start eating, it really lowers how much you will enjoy it.

    Can you get a Carne Asade or Pollo al Ajo or something more along the lines of the regional cuisine? There’s an awful lot of Mexican food that can be elegant enough for a wedding.

    I voted Mahi Mahi because I’m of the attitude that if you’re going to do a destination wedding, jump all in when it comes to embracing where you hold your event. Food, decor, all that fun stuff. Based on the summary of the meals, it sounds like the closest match.

    When I think jambalaya, it’s New Orleans that comes to mind. I noticed that Wikipedia says it originated in the Carribean, but I’ve never heard that before, and I didn’t (quickly) find another source to back that up. Point being, pretty much everyone thinks of cajun-style when you say jambalaya.

    For the lamb, I do really like the sound of that meal. It definitely makes lamb a little more tropical with the fruit and guava sauce. If you don’t want the mahi mahi, I’d say this is a very interesting second choice.

    Honestly none of them. Is there no way to offer a chicken or beef option?

    Chicken and beef skewers sound good to me with some nice sides, but I’m biased and will be doing skewers for mine since it’s easy to make yummy and have options for everyone.
