    The only problem I would have would be choosing which option to try for each course because they all sound so good!

    Looks absolutely incredible to me. I wouldn’t worry too much about picky  eaters  (which I used to be) when it’s 3 courses people really need to be able to enjoy them all, with your feast if there is one course that is challenging of even two they won’t go hungry.

    xiexie :  I’m pescatarian, and this menu sounds amazing. I’d have the veggie options for the first and last courses, but for all others would go with the seafood options as they sound delicious. I should add that I’m not a fan of South East Asian (Thai/Chinese etc) cuisine, but would be very happy to attend a wedding with this menu.

    The only thing I think could be a problem is if anyone has a shellfish allergy. I do, and there’s no way I could be around all that shellfish without having a reaction. I wouldn’t complain at all, but Darling Husband and I would have to leave. No clue if any of your guests have that allergy, but just something to consider. I don’t think you need to change your menu, but maybe just alert anyone with that allergy that there will be a lot of shellfish served, and they can determine if their allergy is severe enough to skip. Just a thought, but it all sounds delicious!

    I would eat the sweet and sour chicken and the steak. That would be it. As long as you had steamed rice as a side I could make that a meal.

    I think you’ve gone out of your way to accomonate your Western guests while at the same time keeping a lot of traditional dishes.  If I attended a wedding in Thailand, I would not expect there to be a lot for me to eat, but I think I would be fine with your menu. smile  Great job!

    Omg this menu is incredible. I would not change a thing! I think for allergies, if there is a way to make sure they can have more of one of the alternative dishes that would probably help. But since most people don’t have allergies, I would not cut out those amazing dishes. If you know the allergies ahead of time you can plan.

    It’s a really seafood/shellfish heavy menu.  I would personally be concerned about cross contamination and being around that much shellfish.  Also, please ensure potential allergies that may be in the sauces or marinades or other ingredients are disclosed.  I once had a reaction and had to use my epipen when there was a non-disclosed ingredient containing shellfish in a steak marinade at a wedding.
