I run a small Indian restaurant in a fairly large city. A huge part of our business if catering for weddings which mean I get to deal with crazy brides at least a couple times a week, if not more.
The one thing I don't understand is why brides won't listen to me when I'm explaining the spice levels of the dishes they want. We are a authentic Indian restaurant, and our food is spicy though we do give you a choice on just how spicy you'd like for it to be. If I, someone who's been doing this for 5 years now, am telling you that its not a good idea to order Chicken Curry hot, it probably isn't. It doesn't matter if you can eat it hot, chances are 99% of your guests can't and are crying after eating two bites.
