We’re also not having one, we don’t know anyone who’s a vegetarian either.
I would definitely make sure that one person didn’t have to just eat your side options. I would check with caterer to see if its possible to throw something together for those that are vegetarians.
I don’t see why your venue can’t make you 1 vegetarian meal since that’s all you need.
I only have one vegetarian coming to our wedding, and I specifically asked her if she needed a vegetarian meal, and told her the sides we were having, and she said she wouldnt care about just eating the sides.
She’s generally one of those “I’m gonna tell you the truth whether you like it or not” types, so I believe she was being honest. Honestly, I’m not a vegetarian and I’d be fine with just eating the sides you’re having.
I know thats not really possible for people with big weddings though. I guess you could always put a thing on the RSVP cards to tell guests to let you know if they have any special dietary needs.
We will have a plated dinner..on the menu guests will have a choice between seafood (salmon) and meet (steak)..and there will be a vegetarian option by request…We are not paying anything extra pp for that…it is just included in our venue..
In your case..I think you can go without a separate vegetarian option…Vegetarians can eat salads, sides and vegetables..I think it will be fine..
And yes..I agree that maybe adding a pasta will be nice too…A lot of vegetarians and not vegetarians love pasta…so it will be a great option for one of the sides..
@kitkat2014: As far as dishes go most everyone likes non meat dishes as well so having one being veggie gives ppl choices if they don;t like the meat you offer or they don’t eat it
as a veggie my self I votes yes…. bc i bet if i had my wedding and didnt serve meet ppl would be upset lol … i know veggie choices can offten be good for peple who eat meat as well as those who do not so itbe a pleaser for everyone on some level
however that being said as logn as the salad has good greens (not ice berg lettus) and has nuts and thigns to go in it i be fine just eating that if i foudn a good salad with feta or blue cheese and nuts in it or on the site to top it with (if ur worried for allergies) suggest that to ur buffet if they dont have nuts along side say you jsut want a good veggie chocie so making the sla have nuts and cheese will leave it filling
so go for a good filling salad if you dont do a veggie choie that along with all else you listed and i would be happy I am not to picky though lol
If you know you’re having a vegetarian then you need a vegetarian option.
You need to make accomodations for vegetarian guests. How would you feel if you went somewhere and you couldn’t eat? I’m sure the caterer/venue can throw together a small pasta dish if you check with them.
As you’re having a buffet style meal, can they not “make” the salad and turn it into a salad bar? That way the vegetarian/s and all your other guests can make their own salad – you could have spinach, lettuce, feta, peppers, onions, olives, croutons, etc. Caesar dressings aren’t vegetarian, so you could have a couple of dressing options – blue cheese, french, etc.
I can’t imagine this would be challenging for the caterers and would be a nice thing.
