your venue should be able to provide one special meal at no or minimal extra cost. ask them.

I’m sure your caterer could handle it no problem.  Maybe even serving her the same dish as the vegetarian dish just without cheese (if that’s the only non-vegan friendly ingredient).  If not, I’m sure they can give you a few ideas of vegan dishes.

We had two VIPs (my dad and his mom) who needed a special meal due to allergies, our caterer had NO problem with it at all, and we had a buffet. They plated the meal for them and had extras if they wanted more.

Throwing together one vegan meal should not be an issue for any reputable venue/caterer. Maybe they’ll charge you a couple bucks for it but I doubt it would be anything outrageous.

I sat next to a vegan girl at the last wedding I went to.  I don’t think she ate anything all night except for the salad as she was displeased with her vegetarian meal.  If your caterer doesn’t specialize in vegan food, don’t expect the best.  Your sister will have to get use to having this “problem” when she’s eating out.  Being a vegan, though admirable, can be extremely inconvenient.

My advice would be to pack alot of nuts and dried fruit (or anything that won’t spoil.)   Have the caterer put it on your sister’s seat.  This way, if she doesn’t like the food they serve, at least she won’t feel weak.
