Most non vegetarians I know will eat vegetarian meals, but it has to be recognizable. No tofu, meat subsitutes. Have regular fries and ketchup in addition to sweet potato fries. Cheese is a good compromise because it makes dishes more filling. Black bean burgers are a good idea, especially with all the usual fixings and on a white/wheat bun (not a sprouted lentil tofu bun, you get my drift?)

@kerensa:  I am in no way mocking you my northern Bee. LOL im southern so the idea that sweet potato fries aren’t “normal,” makes me laugh. These folks are so against veggie head food down in the deep south, but most of our fast food joints offer s.p fries. It just reminds me again to come to the board when I’m unsure about food preferences b.c I learn something new every week!

I’m glad I found this thread! FH and I are considering a fully vegan wedding. Most everyone knows that we are vegans so it souldn’t be too big a surprise. I’m planning on alerting the heavy meat eaters though. Can you chat with some of your meat eating guests and ask what they think? 

I think the found sounds absolutely delicious.

i think your menu sounds amazing, but you will likely want to offer the fish or some meat option. Really though this depends on your guests – what does your family/friends eat? I’m not vegetarian, but rarely eat meat unless someone else prepares it. Fiance and his immediate family are vegetarian but there are certainly people in his and my family who would freak out without chicken as a minimum option (seriously i was going to have a vegan/vegetarian, and chicken option and people were not having it – the venue was surprised when i wanted to be selective about the veggie option but hey i’m in the midwest i guess)

@stasiia:  I went to one – it was delicious!

It was an unusual wedding in many other respects as well, but the food was lovely. There wasn’t a meat option offered at all, but you didn’t miss it. It was fairly informal.

I’d be all for including fish as well though, because fish is the yummiest, and as I don’t like mushrooms it would give me an alternative! 🙂

@stasiia:  I say go for it. I think a lot of people, when they think vegeterian, they thing salad and tofu but there is a lot more to it than that. I am not vegeterian but I do have my days when I just do not feel like eating meat.

It’s hard to say- you know your guests best. In my case, if I had an all vegetarian reception, I would probably get a lot of complaints about the food!

I think it’s a great idea to have the shrimp/fish option as you eat that as well.

Our wedding will ABSOLUTELY be vegetarian. For us, it’s an animal loving and animal rights issue. We will let our guests know that they should eat meat before hand if it’s something they need for their bodies. Otherwise, everyone will be fine eating our delicious vegetarian food. (Even vegan cupcakes!) 

 

🙂

@kittyiah:  Awesome. How are you letting your guests know? Are you putting it on the website?

@maplemag:  Well, good point. I think I was just thinking that most of our guests that are big meat eaters are friends of our families and that our parents could let them know….but perhaps we will add it to the website now that you mention it! Thanks!!!

@kittyiah:  yeah, I’m counting on word of mouth for our vegan wedding but I’m thinking maybe putting it on the website might be a good idea.

Sounds like  great idea! I’m sure some “meat and potato” people will poo poo the idea, but they’ll just have to deal with it:)

That sounds GREAT to me! But I hardly ever have meat.

So I asked Fiance (who eats red meat every night) what he would do at an all-veggie wedding. He said he would try it and focus on the wedding! It would not uset him in the least!

Also, I want to go to an all-veggie wedding!

As long as it tastes/looks good.  I’ve been to one vegetarian wedding where the food was pretty tasteless, but I’ve also been to an Indian one that had amazinnnngggg vegetarian food.  I’d probably have at least one meat option–there’s always that one person who will make a fuss about there being no meat.
