The first time I posted this it was listed as spam….so I’m going to try again.
Just thought I’d share what foods we plan on serving at our upcoming vegan wedding in case anyone is looking for ideas. The majority of our guests are not vegan, so I want to make sure there are lots of different options for people to try. We hired the best vegan caterer in the city and the tasting was amazing!! Our wedding is more casual and fun, so we want our menu to reflect that.
And yes, these are ALL VEGAN
- Potato Pierogi (2 per small cup with cashew sour cream)
- Big, Meaty, Baked Pasta – with tomato sauce and lentil sausage meat
- Slider Bar with pulled jackfruit, sloppy joe mix and meatballs (includes buns, lettuce, tomato, pickles, onion and condiments for people to dress their own sliders)
- Vegetable Maki Rolls with spicy mayo, soy sauce and wasabi
- Cupcakes – Assorted Flavours (Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, etc.)
- Cookies – Assorted Flavours (Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, Gingersnaps, etc.)
- Marshmallow Cereal Bars (like Rice Crispy Squares, but with Golden Grahams, Froot Loops, etc.)
- Hand Pies (Blueberry, Apple, & Cherry)
- Vegan Candies from Squish and Bulk Barn
Late Night Treats
- Taco/Nacho Bar (including warm Nacho Cheese Sauce)
- Chocolate Fountain with Berries & Pretzels

Yum! I’m not vegan, but long time vegetarian and all your choices look fantastic. I don’t think anyone will be leaving hungry, vegan or not!

So it’s fake chicken, meat balls, bolognese and pulled pork? I would avoid doing fake meats if most of your guests aren’t vegan honestly.

jellybellynelly : That’s fair. I generally don’t cook fake meats when I host non-vegans for dinner, but my wedding caterer makes all of hers from scratch using plant bases and they are incredible!! I’ll take the chance

I might have laughed a bit too hard when the VEGAN pasta was described as meaty..this is a great menu bee! I’d love it if I were a guest.

jellybellynelly : I think you misread part of it. It seems most of the “meat” is made from lentils, and jackfruit is a fruit in the fig family. It looks like only a couple things are actually fake meats. Vegan chicken can be really good, depending on the type. I ‘ll a vegan in a family of nonvegans, who have tried the good stuff and thought it was meat. Everything else on their menu is whole plant good based. 🙂
OP, sounds like an amazing menu! 😀

I like the sound of everything except the strawberry bruschetta, but that’s just my personal preference as I dislike sweet savoury foods at the same time.
Im also not the biggest fan of lentils but I’d still try some of he dishes

twinkie698 : it sounds amazing, but I’ll be honest as a meat eater I’d like a little warning that the “chicken parm” is…what? I don’t need to eat meat with every meal, but I avoid tofu and meat subsitutes and wouldn’t want a surprise after I take a bite thinking it’s something else.

Danielle Ashley Templar : I didn’t misread anything. OP is passing off lentils as sasuage. Jackfruit is a sub for pulled pork. It also specifically mentions “meatballs”, who knows what those will be made of. As a non-vegan, I can tell you those people were probably just nice to your face. Sorry, but no fake chicken will actually taste like chicken lol. Normally when someone wants to host a fully vegan meal I’d suggest sticking with things that are ALREADY vegan, like the other delicious items OP has – veggie maki, perogies, pad thai, etc. Trying to get non-vegans to enjoy a vegan meal when there is unfamiliar fake meats looming makes it much more difficult.

introester : LOL I forgot that was in there. I copied and pasted the list from the caterer – that’s how she decribes it

I love vegan food! Everything sounds awesome and delicious!
I would just mention tree nut/peanuts are in whatever foods at the wedding. My fiance is deathly allergic to tree nuts for example and all the vegan stuff I used to make before him had cashews etc. Just incase!

jellybellynelly : That’s why I’m having buffet style with lots of options, so that people can choose what they want to eat. If there are guests that “will absolutely not eat fake chicken ever in life” then they don’t have to!
But trust me, there is vegan chicken that tastes just the same – it’s all in the seasonings!
