Wedding food menu is always an important matter for the host as well as guests too. 🙂 A great arrangement, perfect selection of food menu and fantastic food quality make the whole event of marriage ceremony successful. Delighted guests will always give compliments. But as you know every state of India has some speciality in food and culture and many people prefer other cuisines over their traditional food. So hosts of such events often get confused to decide on traditional menu & modern mixed food menu. People arrange modern food menu where they add western food as well as other Indian cuisines too. That is why nowadays the traditional Bengali wedding food menu can be rarely seen.
But still, some people are looking for authentic Bengali cuisine to add in their food menu. Not only that there are few Bengali people who want to offer traditional Bengali food to their guests and they stick to only Bengali cuisine.
