When I was in Laos last November I attended a wedding of a relative in Ban Keun. This is where my mother’s family is from and we still have many relatives living there. It was a beautiful night for a wedding with good weather, good food, and guests that love to eat, drink, and dance into the night.

These days the bride and groom can have a catering service do all the work for a set of menu. Many restaurants also do wedding food service and you can have a choice of your cuisine whether it be Lao, Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, or whatever your heart desire for the right price of course.

Lao salad

With so many dishes at the wedding, I only ate a bowl of Feu (Pho) and a plate of Yum Salad. Now looking back, I wish I could have tried some laap and few other things.
