    Of course not. The hosts don't eat meat. They aren't obligated to oblige a meat eating preference. : (108 votes)

    Of course! It's a party! Just because they don't eat meat, it doesn't mean anyone else should suffer : (94 votes)

    I think providing meat would be the polite thing to do, as I feel the same about having a veggie option.

    I think that if they’re vegetarians just because, they should provide meat. But if it’s a religious thing, and providing meat would go against their beliefs, then no.

    I would think that the majority of people eat meat.  I would play the odds and try to please as many people as possible.  Granted, if the couple choses to serve only vegetarian becasuse that’s their pesronal choice, everyone else should respect that.

    I really don’t agree with the way the choices are worded, but yes, I would expect a meat option just because traditionally weddings are beef/chicken/maybe veggie… but I wouldn’t be disappointed if there wasn’t one.

    We are not having meat, which initially caused quite a bit of conflict.  Would you go to a Jewish wedding and expect to be served pork?  Would you be offended if I invited you over to my house and didn’t cook meat for you even though we are ethically against it and keep a vegetarian household?

    We tried really hard to make sure there were lots of selections so people won’t be too disappointed.  But it is my strong ethical belief, and I can’t in good conscience pay that amount of money for something that makes me just think of suffering.  I figure people can get through one meal without it so that I can at least not be in tears at my own wedding.

    I think there is a big difference between the two scenarios. omnivores CAN eat vegetarian, its absurd that anyone need meat so badly they can’t enjoy a single meal with out it. For many vegetarians it is a moral decision, they strongly believe against the consumption of meat. No one should have to go against their core values at their own wedding.

    As a guest, I wouldn’t “expect” meat to be there…but I would pregame the shit out of your wedding in the form of Big Macs around the corner from the church.

    @WillowTreeWade:  +1 THIS. I don’t know of anybody who NEEDS meat at every meal. I’ve said it before on this site, but as long as they provide a HEARTY meal (pasta is my go-to vegetarian food that everybody likes) and don’t have options that are only meat substitutes (like tofu or soy products masquerading as meat, that shiz is gross to almost all carnivores I know haha), nobody has the right to complain. If they’re vegetarian due to morals they shouldn’t be forced to kill animals for your pleasure as long as they feed you an edible and hearty meal. (side note: I LOVE ordering the meat option at weddings and I’d be so fine at a meatless wedding if I knew the couple was vegetarian)
