You can’t get what you want catered? You get sick unless every bite of food you eat is literally made by your hands? Sounds like an exhausting and limiting situation.

Can you do a generic ‘guest friendly’ menu with like smaller plates of vegan food, both for you and the few guests you may have that eat similarly?

I frankly wasn’t a fan of a lot of the food at my wedding (too fancy, too much meat lol), but I made sure there were a couple things I DID like, and I was happy but so were all of my guests :). I chose food to make the general population happy, not just me. Plus it was buffet style so it was super easy for people to pick and choose what they wanted.

ohana :  Plan, prepare and bring yourself snacks to eat throughout the day. Often the bride and groom are interrupted when they are trying to eat, so snacks might work better anyhow.

Have the caterer prepare a salad that you can eat with some protein so it lasts.

ohana :  pack your food and ask  the venue to plate it up for you like they would with your guests. I don’t see why it would be weird for you as I’m sure your family and friends are used to you being selective about what you eat for your health issue. 🙂

Glad to see you and fiance have been able to manage your health through diet. I think we as a society still underestimate how much diet and what we put in our mouth correlates with our health.

Can you bring your own food and have the catering staff plate it up for you so that it’s pretty unobtrusive?

Can you ask for a special meal for yourself be prepared due to your dietary considerations?
Where you provide the ingredients?

Ask them to make something special just for you (and your groom if need be) and take your own food and snacks, too. No apologies required. Do whatever you have to do to make sure you are not miserable at your own wedding.

beethree :  my sister did this for her wedding and it worked great. She has several extreme food allergies and if she eats the wrong thing it can make her sick for days. She brought snacks and food from home in tupperware to eat throughout the day, and had them make one meal for her that didn’t have the items she can’t eat in it.

I’m curious how you cure hypothyroidism with food? I was just diagnosed. I say, pop a Levothyroxine that day and you’ll be good to go. Plus, I wasn’t diagnosed for years, you will probably be fine for one day.

ohana :  You said that you eat a fruit cup or a salad when you go out

If that’s not going to work for you, you already know the answer. Bring your own food and have them plate it for you. What other answer is there?

RedHeadKel :  I was wondering the same thing. How do you cure hypothyroidism with diet?

I am confused — can’t you have the caterers make you what you want? Or just make it yourself and give it to them to serve you? How does the identity of the food preparer affect the food — or are you just worried that you can’t trust the caterers to make exactly what you request and to source the food exactly as you want?
