Get the wife to start brewing more Lao Kow (spelling) NOW!

 

This way, it's all covered and won't cost you that much. Some extra rice and food and you're done. Congrats by the way. Hope to not be reading about your divorce on here next year. 🙂

 I recall, when finally realising why; the original 1 pig, became 3 pigs... and 20 extra chickens!!

 

 

at least the butchering and letting scene made for great village entertainment

( we had 300 extras... virtually the entire remaining villagers)

Luckily we got invited to a wedding before we got married. I was shocked when I saw the groom looking like a dressed up ape. Told my beloved  right away that I didn't want such circus. So we agreed to postpone it until after my funeral. And more than 10 years down the road we still boomboom whenever the bike hasn't claimed all my juices for a given day.

'the bike hasn't claimed all my juices for a given day'

 

A bit too much information there.

Any photos?

When we did the traditional Lao wedding it was during Songkran (in 2000). Nothing formal, no paper invites just word of mouth. Had a camp kitchen set up at the side of Mother's house. Cases and cases of Lao Beer. Probably had 500 people coming and going through out the day. Complete strangers walked in off the street and even had a few foreign tourists came in to say hello. It was a bit of a culture shock for me but for her family it was all about showing face.

Just get in an extra 10 cases of Chang and cater for a few more people food wise, and enjoy the day. Cost will be minimal and your wife and her family will gain the respect of the village. For Thb 10,000 not worth being talked about after if your short of food and drink.

Congratulations.

Looks like the OP still have to learn a lot about Thailand. When the party is in a restaurant or at a hotel, you only will see people who are invited. If you do at home it is very normal: everybody can come and join the party, even the all village. Before makings steps and getting a wedding party: be smart and take some information so you will have no surprises as Thailand is not Europe. For what it will cost you: let people enjoy and don't think you are the boss, you just have the money (???)

Learning about Thailand has nothing to do with this. I asked for advice what to do in this case as my wedding is in hotel. If it would be in some Isaan village I wouldn't care. But Im not marrying a village girl.

 

The point was that I didn't know where those uninvited people would sit and eat as I have a seating arrangement. But already found a solution, the hotel said that they have extra chairs and tables prepared and the guests will order a la carte. We share the wedding costs 50/50
