Ask Jody: Pakistani Wedding Cuisine

Jump to Comments

Ammara, Brooklyn

Q:  Hi. We need a place that will accommodate up to 300 people. It’s a Pakistani wedding so the food needs to be halal but I need a venue that won’t kill my our bank account and serve halal food or allow outside catering

A:  Hi Ammara.  Some hotels on Long Island, such as the Marriott in Uniondale, can accommodate 300+ guests and have chefs that specialize in South Asian weddings. You will definitely save some money on transportation, since you and your guests can stay the night at the hotel. You may also be able to get discounted rooms for booking the ballroom. Antun’s in Hicksville can also accommodate up to 400 guests, and offers an ethic cuisine. There are different packages that include floral arrangements, a DJ, photographer/videographer, and more!
