Any 2011 Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Nan,

 

I guess it is all depends on where your guests are from...their expectation and their taste.  However, if u fed them a few shots of tequila, I think everything will go smoothly! 

 

I have people from Hong Kong, Paris, Rome, Toronto, Vancouver, NYC, Montreal...seriously I can't serve smth too street/bar food.  I was raised with hotel room service and micheline restos food (my dad is a chef, and my family are foodies), so I m generally very picky on food.  Maybe I am the pickiest one ...heehee..no wonder I am only 90lbs! I live to eat, not the other way around.

 

Seriously...after 7000+ miles/ 12 hours+ of plane, the last thing I want to see ...is a weird looking dried meat or glue looking paste with greasy chips I want my wedding to be remembered as good food, good music, good ambience.  I just want to be perfect (sounds like Natalie Portman in Black Swan)!

 

Trust me, people get over bad/weird/cheap food but they do REMEMBER it.  Of course! I 've been to those receptions that I needed to goto chinatown at 11pm to get a lobster for a quick second serving.

 

All the items on my menu aren't available in any of the 7 or 8 restos in my resorts, and if they want to have mexican food, they can goto the yucky 4 stars sister hotel across the street to have it.

Murmel, Bonnie, BrideKSMith and Primavera:

 

Thank you for answering my post. As I told you, I´m getting nervous but I guess it´s only normal. I´m havinsg guests from all over the world ( not really all over but from different corners) and I would say pretty adventurous. What I tried during my site inspection was very classy Mexican cuisine with just a hint of spices so that´s why I decided to go for it. My FI and myself love it, but then some of my friends told me that may be I should offer a more nternational menu. So I started wondering..... 

 

Bonnie your menu sounds fantastic and I´m going to check with Julieta my WC if we could have an extra dish that people can choose from. I guess this way everybody will be happy. I know it´s my wedding but I really want everybody to feel wonderful and enjoy as they will be coming from faraway places to join in the fun.

 

I´ll keep you posted...cheers.gif

Nan,

 

Don't get to stressed out! It's really not worth it. If you and your FI enjoyed the food- it's got to be good! As long as it's not too spicy, I am sure most of your guests will be happy to see something new and unique. And it's truly a choice to showcase your beautiful destination location.

Good luck!

Nan, if you and your FI liked it I'm sure it will be great!! At our resort the Mexican restaurant was very fancy, nothing like Mexican food I have ever had before. Our guests were from Sweden and the US and they loved it, they are all globetrotters and my brother-in-law is a chef and a restaurant manager so they can be picky. Don't worry, I'm sure your guests will love it!! :)

I have decided to go for my mexican menu and get another more international dish for the people to choose from.  It relieves me to know that your guests loved the mexican fancy food!!
