Are you having the rehearsal at a restaurant or at a home?  If it’s at a restaurant, can they not accomodate her?  If it’s at a residence, it’s even easier as you can just prepare something else for her.

I would go directly to her and see what she suggests.  Maybe you could get a take out meal from another local restaurant specifically for her since she has a dietary/medical concern.

Can they eat the side dishes? Maybe ask the caterer what they suggest. Also, ask her what options she might be able to have, if she had to eat a bar-b-que dinner.

I have a friend who is a vegetarian, and recently on a roadtrip we stopped my to get some BBQ (which she obviously couldn’t eat) and she decided to eat the side dishes. Are there any side dishes they might be comfortable with (corn, potato salad, beans, salad)?

Usually a caterer can prepare one thing for those with dietary restrictions so talk to her to see what she could eat and speak to the caterer to see if they can prepare it. If not, see of somewhere else locally can drop something off or if she is local and wants to bring her own dish.

If she has these issues, she’s probably used to not being able to eat things.  Like other people have said, just ask her.  You can always pick up a precooked boneless skinless chicken breast and a bag of salad for her 🙂
