Pig Roast Reception
Posted 10 May 2009 - 11:10 AM
A regular dinner, or a Hawaiian Luau Pig Roast.
The Pig Roast just sounded like something a little different to us. And since we did orginially want to get married in Hawaii it sounded fun.
Will this gross people out? I have to admit Ive never been to one, and Im worried it would.
What are your thoughts?

If you want a more casual feel then do the pig roast.
I went to a pig roast wedding once and it was a little weird because it wasn't what I was expecting. I was in heels and a dress picking meat off a pig, trying not to look it in the face!
From a catering standpoint, if you only have 30 or so people it seems like a pig would be a waste of food. A buffet/plated dinner might be cheaper?
The bottom line is that it's your wedding. Do what you think will be the most fun. I do like that it ties in with your Hawaii idea.

If you do decide to go this route, then I say you need to go all out with it. Make sure your other dishes and sides also fall in line with this theme so it stays consistent, yanno don't just have a random pig with other stuff, lol. In doing that, I think it would also be nice to create a luau type setting -- decor, music, lighting, drinks, maybe even ask your guests to dress for it, etc.
Oh and also, would be a good idea to let your guests know it will be a luau so they know what to expect

Will it be roasted underground or on a spit? A spit is in everyone's face, but if it is underground the people who want to see it come out of the ground can see it and the people who don't want to see it can mingle off to the side or inside and wait for it to be carved. It doesn't have to be served head and all, you could ask that they just put the carved pieces on platters and keep the head/other body parts in the kitchen.
I think that if you want a pig roast your inlaws need to get into the spirit of things or at least keep their concerns to themselves...it's your party so make it your version of memorable
