I have a gluten intolerance, so I’ll be doing the same when it comes my time to plan. Glad to know it’s entirely possible – although I was always most concerned about a cake. G-f cakes can just go so wrong sometimes.

I am Girlfriend too, and my wedding cake is going to be from a King Arthur gluten free chocolate cake mix–I highly recommend them. My reception is just dessert, so it’s going to be lots of mousse and parfaits.

Me! I’m only having my meal prepared gluten free though. My cake isn’t gluten/dairy (I also can’t have dairy) free bc that would just be nasty and I want everyone else to be able to enjoy it. It sucks but at this point I’m used to not being able to enjoy the same things as everyone else.

One more coeliac bride here.  I also have a nightshade allergy; but FI’s family is Irish (like really, his parents immigrated from Belfast), so there will be potatoes.

We haven’t settled on a menu/caterer yet; but I hope to have gluten free choices for me, my sister (MoH) and my cousins & aunt.

 

BUT – one thing we’re definitely doing is a gluten-free cake (or low gluten, I suppose, since it has Guinness in the recipe).  Fiance and I are baking it ourselves.

My Future Father-In-Law is Girlfriend. My question to you ladies is how do you tell your caterer that we only need 1 Girlfriend plate? How do we make sure HE gets it, not someone else?

Me too! We aren’t at the planning stage yet (just engaged Wednesday) but were planning almost all the food will be gluten free and gluten free Georgetown cupcakes. There will be regular beer and most likely real rolls. I’m not paying for a meal that could get me sick and I want to feel normal and eat everything at my wedding.

@MmeSilverBullet:  

It’s so simple (I’ve been the only celiac at many weddings). Tell the cateror in advance, confirm when you have final numbers and indicate where he is sitting on the seating chart. Then put a sticker or write Girlfriend on the back of his place card so the waiter can be sure he gets the right person. I’m told its super common and no problem.

My mother has Celiac so I’ll be providing a gluten free cupcake for her and her meal will be gluten free…

I am! My sister and a few guests are as well so I think we will just get a separate small Girlfriend cake for us, and have a regular cake for everyone else. As for food, I think we are doing plated dinner so just have a few Girlfriend plates made.

@Pollywog:  Yeah unless the place is lazy and people serving don’t understand the importance. My good friend was seved the gluteny meal and she was the bride who couldn’t have it. There are no promises. I’d be all over the staff making sure they would take care of it depending on how intolerant the person is.

I have gluten intolerance and am allergic to dairy. I had a gf/dairy free cake and everyone loved it. As for the main course, the caterer prepared a seperate meal for me and it was no problem at all.
