Hi!  What a bummer that the caterers can’t seem to want to help you out 🙁

I also have a severe reaction to gluten, as do two close relatives and two of my good friends who were all at the wedding.  The caterer was very much willing to work with us on this, and we had a buffet.  On two tables was the salmon, steak, vegetables, potatoes, salad, and fruit/cheese; then on a separate table was the bread and pasta (both wheat containing).  They assured me that there would be no cross contamination in the kitchen and by separating the pasta/bread from the rest of the food there wouldn’t be a risk for mixing serving utensils or anything.  They also got use rice crackers for the fruit/cheese display! 

For cake, we actually had three smaller cakes, one of which was a gluten free red velvet cake with vanilla cream cheese frosting.  A friend who bakes made them for the wedding, and honestly I trust her kitchen more than a commercial bakery to avoid cross contamination.  You could do something like that, or have your gluten free cake for cutting and then serve regular cupcakes to the guests?  Like you mentioned, most people who had the red velvet cake had no idea it was even gluten free, so it wasn’t a big deal.  And the guests had no idea that 80% of the food on the buffet was gluten free either. 

Maybe this helps 🙂  good luck!

Fiance has celiac, so its a big issue for us also.   I’ve only visited 2 venues so far, and both assured me there would be no issue.   We used one of the venues a few years ago for my Daughter’s reception without an issue and we will most likely use them again.  

We will have a small Girlfriend groom’s cake for my Fiance and his children (they inherited Celiac).   The main cake will be white buttercream with yellow cake, the Groom’s cake will be all Chocolate.  I’m hoping that by doing that, if cross contamination does happen, crumbs could be seen.

@nari-me:  I have celiac and we are doing a 100% gluten free menu. It was a non-negotiable in picking a venue and my guests have not been asked for their opinion. My feeling is that it is amazing good, no one will miss the gluten, and Georgetown cupcakes’ gluten free version is awesome. We wouldn’t serve gluten to guests in our housr, why would we at our wedding?
