So the theme of our wedding is “Our favorite things”. Every vendor we chose is local and really highlights the best of our small city
The ceremony is in our favorite park, we’re using orchestra versions of music from our favorite video games, the cake is from our favorite bakery, the reception is at our favorite italian restraunt.
We get 2 main dish choices for our buffet. They also serve salad, this homemade french bread that REALLY dence and amazing and our choice of soup (I chose the cream of zucchini. It’s to die for).
Me and Fiance decided we should each pick our favorite dish. So we did. My mom was looking over the menu we chose and asked us why we were doing a vegetarian buffet.
I hadn’t realized at all. He chose their gourmet cheese pizza and I chose the cheese raviolis. I don’t know if it’s too late to change our choices, but Fiance doesn’t want to. He says that they are our favorites and that’s the whole underlying theme of the wedding and we should keep it as is.
I think guests are going to be mad we have no meat.
What should we do?

ARG! Weddingbee won’t let me format >.<

I don’t know if people will be mad. I’d definitely go, “Huh.” but I’d be all over thoe cheese ravioli.
I wouldn’t stress too much about it, if I were you.
ETA: It’s just you. It’s formatted for me.

It’s totally ok. I know some people would be like, “It’s not a meal without meat…” (DH thinks this…) Personally, I’m totally cool with a vegetarian dinner.

Sounds delicious to me. I really don’t know anyone who is so meat-crazy that they’d be upset at there not being an option. It’s better to have something everyone can eat, than to have only meat dishes, when there may be vegetarians.
I hope no one’s lactose intolerant, though!

@MissFireFlower: As a meat-a-tarian.. thats a tough one. I honetly wouldn’t mind through as I love ravioles and bread. Yum!
Also, the formatting always looks messed up for the OP, but looks fine for everyone else. It’s nicely formatted 🙂

As a cheese enthusiast, I would LOVE your buffet!

It’s formatted fine to us! Don’t add the meat, that would defeat the purpose of your whole theme. It’s different if it was two meat options (leaving nothing for the non meat eaters to eat), but everyone can go one meal without having meat. Plus you guys stay true to you.

I don’t necessarily know that you need to add meat, but I would be cautious having two cheese-heavy items as main dishes. There are a surprising amount of people who are lactose intolerant or just don’t care for that much cheese.

@MissFireFlower: What is with WB not formatting these days?
I would also probably go huh? and then happily mow down because I love cheese. Fiance on the other hand would be left starving as he can’t eat cheese. Soup dinner for him!

I hope you don’t have any lactose intolerant or carb-counting guests?! To me-pizza and ravioli are two totally different foods-so it’s not too similar of that’s a point of contention. Switching one out for or adding a meat dish would make the meal much more rounded-it’s always nice to have a protein especially when drinking-but not necessary-it is at an Italian restarant after all, and pizza and pasta is what they do best!

Personally, I would try to include meat. Some of my family is severely lactose intolerant and can’t have any dairy products whatsoever. Some others don’t like cheese (which shocks me!!) including my mom. She hates cheese. Crazy woman!

Unless you specifically know people are lactose intolerant, I wouldn’t worry about having two cheese dishes. I don’t know anybody in my life who is being invited to the wedding that is lactose intolerant.

I do think people will notice and care just because I know so many people who think that a meal isn’t a meal without meat, but if you can’t find a meat option you like, I wouldn’t worry about it too much since it’s your wedding and these are your favorite things. If it’s not too much trouble though, I would go ahead and add a meat dish.

@Hyperventilate: A lot of people that are lactose intolerant are pretty quiet about it because it is something that is relatively easy to avoid. It is more common than you might think – well over 10% in most populations.
