    I don’t have any suggestions, just sympathy(I have celiac and food allergies). You deserve to be safe, especially on your wedding day.

    As someone with food allergies, I actually think that bringing the cake in from a specific vendor that handles GF cakes is a good idea. Cross contamination is a bitch. Personally, I’d look at other area bakeries. Nothing against vegans, but you don’t need a vegan cake. You said your guests were vegetarian, not vegan. If you go with a GF cake made with eggs and butter, you’ll have a MUCH better tasting product. Everyone will be happy and you’ll be safe.

    dewingedpixie:  That’s so frustrating! It’s one thing for them to say “no, we cant accomodate that” at the very beginning, but to have it all change half-way through is unacceptable. I hope their review of your file will get things back on track for you. If not, what I’d do is make a list of your “must-haves” and the things you were promised, and present them with it. If they can’t provide you with the services you were promised, find someone else who can!

    dewingedpixie:  I just wanted to say one thing here; I don’t think you’re being a bridezilla at all. Your concern is very legitimate, and I hope it gets worked out soon 🙂

    This is absolutely not a bridezilla rant, this is a 100% legitimate concern. This is your special day, your day to celebrate a lifetime of happiness. HAPPINESS. Happiness means a comfortable stomach, feeling safe and secure enough to eat whatever you see on the plate. You have an illness and a sensitivity, yes, but that doesn’t mean you should be held back from any of the joys that stereotypically come with a wedding.

    My mother is GF for health issues, and her reaction isn’t nearly as bad as a celiac reaction, but it’s terrible to see her noticeably uncomfortable. If this is a condition of your signing on with Mouse for a wedding, then you need to remind them of that. You would not be there if they hadn’t guaranteed you accommodations for your eating issues, and now you’re fighting to have that back. Totally reasonable.

    Honestly, the first bridezilla rant I’ve had was the waterproof tea lights for the centerpieces at my wedding were a blue-white light instead of a gold-white light, and I couldn’t stand the blue-white lights not matching with the gold-white light of the fairy lights already in place at the venue 😛 See, you could be a REAL bridezilla!

    dewingedpixie:  Agreed, you are not a bridezilla for being persistant with this issue. I have severe food allergies and would NOT be happy about planners/venues being blase about it!
