Ok so I have three different catering services I am trying to choose from. The prices are so close that really does not matter. The bad thing none of these people offer for me to taste test before hand because of the logistics of things; vegy items are not things taht they cook frequentlly. This is a VEGY menu. Please tell me what option you like the best or make your own mix of the best menu. I just feel like something is missing from each option.I am open to any vegy suggestions so please feel free to make any suggestions. also i dont want our guests to feel depreived bc it is vegy only. also food is a big thing in our family so i really want to focus on a great menu.
By The Way my wedding is sunday june 6th at 3pm

Are you and your Fiance vegetarians?
I have to be honest, and I say this in all love, unless the wedding was for REALLY EXTREME vegetarians, I would be really surprised to not see ANY meat at a wedding, like some chicken or fish or something.
Can you add a tofu dish? I agree with your statement that something is missing, and I for one love a good tofu dish!

I love the panini bar – couldn’t you incorporate meat for the panini bar? Or will there just be veggies for a panini?

I have to agree with daydreamwanderer. I would love your menu but my Fiance and family would be hungry an hour later because they would not eat much of it. Are you doing snacks later in the evening?

I appreciate everyones honestly. thank you for the feedback.
We are not vegetarians. we are benai noah’s (similar to the Jewish religion); all meet we eat should be kosher. This is especially important during such an important ceremony and event like our wedding. we looked into serving kosher meat but there are no kosher caters here. So really our only option is vegy. so incorporating meat is not an option.

violachap-for the reason stated above there will be no meat for the paini bar. just vegies….tomatos, cheese, and spinach.

Can you do fish? Only asking bc in Jewish religion, fish isn’t considered meat and is therefore kosher…
Our vegetarian option is a mushroom ravioli with a sage butter sauce (YUM!)…What about doing a couple of different stuffed pastas (ravioli, stuffed shells, manicotti)?
Also, another idea is to go with a Middle Eastern theme, with falafel, babba gannoush and lots of delicious salads and stuff!
I think the menu options you have are great, I’m just trying to think of ways to jazz it up a little more…

I say this withe love and respect but maybe you should seriously consider a meat option. Not everyone will be turned on to the veggie options and yes I know it’s your wedding and should be a reflection of your styles, but you also have to think about your guests. You can do the vegitarian thing with at least one meat option, maybe chicken or fish like another poster said. Think about it!
I do like the panini bar thing, sounds super yummy! I’m guessing by the menu it’s a lunch reception? Good luck!

i’m a vegetarian, so i’m used to planning meals with no meat. besides cheese in the lasagna, it doesn’t look like there’s much protein on any of the menus–potatoes, pasta, and corn are all starches. people might get hungry again not long after eating if there’s no protein, especially if they’re used to eating meat. can you get dishes with beans (i personally love white beans with pasta), nuts, eggs, or tofu added to any of the menus?

Love miss trailmix’s ideas for stuffed pasta. It would be filling and stick with people for a while. Come on who doesn’t love anything stuffed with cheese.

Trailmix-thank you for the fish idea. can you give some suggestions of fish taht might go good with my menu or fish that would be good on paninis?
btw your brilliant…

Not sure how I would like the fish with paninis. I think if you did the panini bar there should just be an option for people to add some grilled chicken or something to them. I also love green beens, I would add to menu #2.
