Pele:  Honestly, as a meat eater, this doesn’t really appeal….

 

But with regards to pairings I think Swiss cheese goes well with Ham or Turkey…maybe a sharper cheddar with the mettwurst/salami type meats.

As a guest, I would also pass on this.  The meats are cut so thick and I wouldn’t enjoy that much of one type of meat as an appetizer.

I’d probably do something like rolls of meat and cheese on a platter instead of a meat bouquet…. that way guests can select their own meat and cheese pairing

That’s a pretty gross picture. BTW, if you’re a vegetarian, why would you serve meat at your wedding? I assume it’s not for ethical reasons…

Are a lot of your other guests going to be vegetarian? I’m worried that they would be offended by that display. As a fellow vegetarian, that made me vomit a little in my mouth. I actually clicked on this thinking “there is no way that’s what it sounds like,” yet it is exactly what it sounds like. xD

I don’t think you are obligated to serve meat unless you’ll be enjoying it yourself! No need to please every guest. If your menu reflects what is appetizing and delicious to you and your fiance, I think everyone else will be happy, too! When I expressed my concerns about a vegetarian reception to my wedding planner, she told me that people will get over it, and at worst, go to McDonald’s later for a burger!

Cordellia:  Vegos can serve meat at their weddings if they wish? My sister and her husband are vegos and served some meat/seafood along with vego food.

I’d eat the crap out of that. But there’s little way to keep bugs/dust/whatever off it.

Lollybags:  Of course they can. Anyone can serve anything they want to at their weddings. But it’s basically supporting the meat industry, so I don’t see it as something an ethical vegetarian would do and I don’t think vegetarians should feel that they HAVE to serve meat just to accommodate meat eaters. <br /><br />OP I would suggest asking your fiance what he thinks since he eats meat. He’d be the best person to ask.

Cordellia:  I think ethics can be a very subjective topic. I wouldn’t dare say to a vego who serves meat at a wedding/event etc. that they are not an ethical vegetarian because no doubt I’d get some feisty responses.

Lollybags:  I guess I’m more the daring type, then. <br /><br />People are vegetarians for lots of reasons, not just ethics. Health is a big one that comes to mind.

I think the bacon roses are a little more appealing. And, everyone likes bacon.

Cordellia:  I’m aware of that, I used to be vegetarian myself for a number of years. My sister would identify as a vegetarian for ethical reasons but still served meat at her wedding. I guess in her case she feels she can separate what she personally does and wishes to support from other people’s choices and wishing to cater to her guests tastes. I’d have no issue with attending an all vego/vegan wedding and would understand if that was the couples choice due to their personal beliefs of course either 🙂

I might be a germaphobe, but I wouldn’t be pumped about eating that not knowing how it was prepared, who had touched it, how it had been stored, etc. Obviously those are concerns for all types of food, but something about meat and cheese cut into shapes and skewered into a flowerpot squicks me out.
