@crazylady:  Haha! I was about the write the same myself…

ETA: Here’s a website with gluten free finger food recipes that seem to have great reviews. Wasn’t sure if you’re looking for finger foods or more sit-down ideas…

@Misswhowedding:  Are you looking for food to specifically pair with a type of alcohol, and, if so, what drinks are on order?  Are distilled liquors being included (I understand that many gluten-free/gluten-sensitive people don’t like even distilled alcohols despite the fact that distillation is supposed to remove the gluten)?

ETA to remove conflusion re: gluten/glutton b/c I saw above post that said it was an auto-correct issue!

I think that would be sort of hard since most alcohol has gluten in it. You can make pretty much anything. I would stick with some sort of theme. Both mexican food (lots of corn based meals) and asian (lots of rice based meals) would give you lots of options. 

Mexican: Chips, Salsa, Gauc, taco bar, mexican rice bowls

Asian: Edamame, vegetables with a sesame or peanut dipping sauce, stir fry bar, chicken or beef teriyaki, fried rice

Basically anything revolving around fruit, vegetables and meat would be fine. I’d stay away from Italian since that tends me to be very bread based. You could even do a soup and sandwich bar using gluten free bread. Eliminating gluten doesn’t really change your options that much, there are gluten free alternatives for most foods now. But honestly, if you are doing a tasting bar, you aren’t doing a gluten free shower since most alcohol has gluten in it so keep that in mind. I also don’t think you need to eliminate all gluten, just give options for those who are gluten free.

@Misswhowedding:  there are a lot of options but you have to be super careful with cross contamination. 


Gluten free liquors: (usually safe if plain, no flavor added and mixed with soda)





hard cider, wine and champagne are another options.


 Foods: chips, salsa, Girlfriend pretzels, even onion dip (most brands are Girlfriend just check labels)

pilsbury Girlfriend pastry dough + nathans mini hotdogs= Girlfriend pigs in a blanket

order or buy Girlfriend pizza and cut it up to serve as an apetizer

Girlfriend pasta & most sauces are Girlfriend

salad… no croutons, oil and vinegar (check about cheeses, some contain gluten)

Cheese- chedar, motzerella, brie, swiss, goat (usally all safe)

Pepporoni (boars head is safe)

Crackers : most groceries carry Girlfriend crackers. 

Veggie platter with ranch dressing  (just if dip is GF)

For dinner, if your serving plain grilled foods, steamed veggies, rice, potatoes, 



for dessert: 

fruit salad, Girlfriend cake and cake mixes, watermelon cake (kind of out of season right now).


FYI you are a great friend for doint this.. being a Girlfriend bride SUCKS!!!!!!!
