We did a fully vegan wedding and it went over well, many things people didnt even notice, like the cake.

Well if you’re having fish it’s not vegetairan (fish is an animal, not a plant). It’s your day, serve what you want. EVERYBODY eats vegetables so it’s not like there wont be anything for people to eat.

I’m an avid meateater who would usually poo poo any all-vegetarian/vegan wedding menus, but yours sounds pretty tasty, and very seasonal. The shrimp, chilled tomato soup, and watermelon salad will all be quite refreshing. I’m skeptical on the seitan – it has to be REALLY good to be good, and will be the least familiar to the non-vegetarians. I’m also wondering if you would consider replacing one of the veggie dishes (like the black bean sliders, mushrooms, or eggplant) with maybe some kind of fish? We had rockfish shishkebabs at ours that were delicious. That might make the buffet even more substantial.

I think that menu sounds amazing! And I love meat. 

I am a big fan of black bean burgers, when done correctly. Of course, I love black beans. 

Everything else sounds sooo good, especially the ravioli. I kind of wish I was coming to your wedding…

Yes! Some of my relatives did this. It worked out great. As they are vegetarian, they didn’t want to serve meat.

Go for it!

We totally wanted this!!!!  However, I am from the country, literally my uncle owns a meat producing sheep farm.  We compromised and had one meat dish (pulled pork sliders) and everything else (sides, snacks, etc) is veggie.  Good luck to you!  Sounds fun and awesome.

I think that if you are vegetarian everyday, you absolutely should be on your wedding day! And why should somebody who is ethically opposed to eating meat pay for something they are agaisnt on THEIR wedding day.

The way I see it, the guests are there for you, it’s one day for you to decide (almost everything), so do what you want and the complainers can just shut up about it! It’s one meal in their entire lives, they’ll get over it.

And it’s not the same as serving a vegetarian meat, because as far as I know, most omnivores aren’t ethically opposed to plant-based foods!

That looks fantastic. And now I am hungry!

P.S. This might be a silly question, but what’s a slider? We don’t have them in Australia.

@rusticbee2014:  +1. Asking a vegetarian to serve a meat option at their wedding is not the same as asking a meat-eater to serve a vegetarian option at their wedding: a vegetarian would usually be going against their ethics/beliefs to do this, whereas a meat-eater would not.

Someone above tried to liken the two scenarios, but they are in fact hugely different.

A vegetarian should never be expected to compomise their beliefs and serve meat at their own wedding.

@Mrsluckywife:  I saw that, and thought – it is totally different! Unless like you said, someone was opposed to eating things that weren’t meat. LOL. Good comment!!

@clairebbbear:  Sliders are tiny burgers. Think 2 inches across instead of 5.
