So I'm looking for some helpful suggestions with planning my wedding. My fiance is Italian and I am East-Indian. The one preference we both have is for EXTREMELY good food.
My parents have decided that our Indian guests will ONLY appreciate Indian food and this is making things incredibly difficult as the Italians do not actually eat Indian food and also want their guests to appreciate good cuisine.
The other problem is that Indian food is usually priced at a more reasonable level whereas high end North American food will likely run us around 150-250 per person.
Does anyone know or has anyone been to any Indian fusion weddings whereby they might be able to offer suggestions to solve this dilemma? I've considered Indian-fusion or Indian-inspired but my parents have firmly told me that will not fly.
I've also considered hiring 2 caterers (unless one magically appeared that could make both Indian and North American food) but that limits us to picking a venue which allows outside catering (also difficult). With over 300 guests that limits us immensely unless we want to break the bank.
At the end of the day I'm at my wits end with figuring this out. I was thinking maybe I could find a creative chef who could somehow develop a plated Indian meal...cause we can't have some people do buffet or family style and some not... I dunno, any help would be appreciated...very lost.
