None of the above, including the sides that were posted.
Lamb I do not like, seafood of all types I am allergic to. I would also be eating PBJ or having a liquid meal and then go out for some true Mexican food.
I would love a grilled chicken breast skewer or two however. Only because the breast is the only part of the chicken that I do eat.

I’d prefer the Mahi Mahi. I don’t like Cajun food (way too hot and many people can’t handle that much spice) and the other is a little too exotic for most tastes (I like lamb fine but don’t care for guava) although most people honestly wouldn’t know that it wasn’t beef unless you told them. You don’t have to worry about seafood allergies unless you are serving shellfish (a common ingredient of jambalaya).

I probably wouldn’t choose any of the options because I’m allergic to seafood/fish, and I’m not the biggest fan of lamb.. but if I had to I would choose the lamb.

I voted for the mahi, but after reading that the rest of your menu is heavy on seafood I think the lamb would be the best choice! It sounds delicious and I’d be thrilled to attend a wedding and get something other than the standard dry chicken breast in sauce or overcooked (for my taste) beef brick with bland steamed veggies and potatoes.
I don’t think jambalaya is a good fit with the other courses you’ve chosen.

I don’t eat spicy food or fish so one and two are out for me. I’m not a fan of lamb but it’s the only one left I can eat.

I voted Mahi Mahi, but the baked potato side makes 0 sense.

I honestly would choose none of the above. I don’t like fish very much, and I really don’t like lamb. Can you possibly serve chicken or beef? If you know that your guests all like fish, great, if not, there would basically be nothing for someone like me to eat 🙂

I voted for the Mahi, but then saw the rest of your menu. Now I am thinking lamb. They both sound great though.

I guess the Mahi Mahi so I could just eat the baked potato.

@mrsbruff2b: Why no mexican food? If you’re in Mexico it seems ideal!

I wouldn’t eat any of the above, nor would I eat the rest of the menu. I’m a super picky eater. My adivce is to make sure that everyone will be at least able to eat something there. I guess if your guests are ok with it the PPs gave some advice.

I too have seafood/fish allergies and I do not eat lamb. So I’d be totally out of luck because all of the other courses have seafood in them as well. But you know your guests….

I am a pretty traditional eater and would maybe try the Mahi Mahi and the sides, but besides that and dessert I wouldn’t really eat much at your wedding.

Are you eating inside or outside? If you are outside, the only appropriate choice is the Mahi Mahi. Everyhing else is too heavy for an outdoor meal in the tropics during the summer. I also would not add shellfish (as in the jumbalaya) to that menu, which is (IMO, obnoxiously) heavy with shellfish.

None sound all that appealing. I’d pick lamb because it is a very seafood dominated menu, but you said someone was allergic. Mahi Mahi could be good, but I feel with such a seafood centric menu, it might be nice to provide a chicken or beef option (even if it is on a skewer).
I personally love seafood and wouldn’t have a problem with mahi mahi and all the other seafood, but seafood can be one of those things that people either like or dislike. Is there anyway they can make the other menu items not so seafood based?
