I saw that a PP had posted about it being on the RSVPs, thought I’d chime in – that is the norm for where we are as well. We put a section on our RSVPs asking those with allergies or dietary requirements to please, please let us know. We didn’t make our whole menu about it….but again, labels. So simple, yet so effective. Lol.

I was expecting you to have a more “exotic” allergy that people might not have heard of! Nuts are a completely expected thing to have severe allergies to, and I think that it’s commonly understood that some peanut/nut allergies can cause anaphylaxis. Speak to the bride, offer to bring your own food if necessary, if she’s not an awful person she will understand and be sympathetic.
