We only had one gluten-full option which was butternut squash ravioli. Otherwise, it’s pretty easy to have a buffet filled with meats and veggies and a potato dish as a starch, most people would never notice you didn’t have gluten if you had a potato dish.

@donna_saur:  Same as PP.  Our meals are all gluten-free, things like 12 hr roasted lamb shoulder, etc.  As long as there is no flour used to thicken the sauces (which is gross anyway). And then I’m just going to have a gluten free cupcake in the same flavour as the wedding cake – for my step mother.

I can’t have gluten, so there will be some sort of gluten-free option, but I don’t intend to deprive everyone else of the deliciousness of dinner rolls and fluffy cake.

Everything at mine will be Girlfriend as me and my Future Sister-In-Law can’t eaten gluten without ending up in the hospital XD Including the cake and cupcakes. You can have cake and cupcakes that are just as fluffy and delicious as gluten ones, my fiance is a baker and he makes me cake and cupcakes whenever I want lol. Wheat flour is very easily switched out for other things in baking and sauces/gravies

@donna_saur:  Cross contamination…you’re going to get sick. Theres no way to void cross contamination in that situation. My fiance says you’ll need to warm anyone with a gluten allergy not to touch the cake or utensils/plates used with it, any part of it, as it will be contaminated and if they get sick you could be sued for saying its a Girlfriend cake..if bottom layer isn’t also Girlfriend theres no way you avoided cross contamination.

@donna_saur:  If she did it for a living she would know how dangerous that is. Just having the cutlery used close together could lead to contaimination let alone on the same cake. I can’t even use the same toaster as my fiancee..I’m not trying to be snarky I have just seen ‘professionals’ claim to be educated in Girlfriend food before and have seen my Future Sister-In-Law end up in the hospital for days because of it

We are doing a smaller wedding cake that is Girlfriend and having cupcakes that are not. This helps to avoid the whole cutting issue. I do intend to warn the guests who have celiac that its not from a dedicated gf bakery. I have a mild wheat allergy (causes me skin issues) thus why I wanted a Girlfriend cake and food. So it’s not as much of an issue for me personally. But I know celiac is a serious disease.

Yea when dealing with gluten it really depends on what type the people coming to your weddding have . If its an sensitivity or celiac you have to warm ppl if the items have any chance of cross contamination. I wont be having any gluten items
