I went to one in NYC a few years ago that was fantastic. Not tropical but still exciting and the food at all the different restaurants was out of this world! There were vegan cupcakes for the wedding cake. None of the guests had a single thing to complain about.

Maybe somewhere with an Indian/Hindu culture as many of them are vegetarian and would be used to supplying this sort of food? Fiji has a large Indian population and is popular for destination weddings (for Australian and NZs anyway). I think there is a decent sized Hindu population as well in Mauritius and googling tells me Trinidad and Tobago as well apparently. Goa in India as well?  FI and I also had a vegetarian banquet once in Vietnam at a Buddhist temple (made by the monks!) that was amazing!

 

ETA – oh and parts of Malaysia too maybe where there are population centres of Indian/Hindus? My friends fiance is Indian-Malaysian and a vegetarian from Penang.

VeggieBee:  I think you could find good vegetarian options in the Mediterranean. I’m sure everyone thinks of lamb and kabobs, but there are tons of healthy options that are vegetarian (maybe not vegan). I’m veggie, and I love Mediterranean food–Greek, Lebanese, etc. 

I second the vote for Indian food as well!

I realize this is an old post, but I had to respond–Yay, a fellow veggie! Did you wind up finding something? I’d be curious to know what you went with because we are currently planning a vegan-friendly DW ourselves. We are hoping to have our wedding at the Stanford Inn in Northern California. I haven’t been, but it looks gorgeous. They have organic gardens and are close to the rocky shoreline and close to wine country as well. Their restaurant is 100% vegan. We were originally going to elope… but decided we could have the best of both worlds by keeping our DW domestic. Other ideas we considered included Costa Rica at Cascadas Farallas. Ultimately we decided the Costa Rica was too expensive an option for us, and if we’d gone that route we would have only been able to afford to elope and not have an actual DW.

My cousins are vegan and took their honeymoon in Spain. They actually had a lot of luck with fin ding great Vegan food there. If you want to go Carribbean, I would think any major resort would be able to manage varying health requirements!
