I am not familiar with vegan food so I am curious what type of menu do you envision if you could dream up a perfect one?

Neither myself nor my Boyfriend or Best Friend are vegan, but we went to an all vegan restaurant for our anniversary one year. It was delicious and we didn’t feel like anything was missing. We even loved the non-dairy ice creams. If done well, I think it could be great.

Following – the only issue you may have with alchocol is finding stuff that’s vegan friendly just FYI :)-!

if you are vegan for moral reasons then you should have a vegan wedding.

PLAN YOUR WEDDING EXACTLY AS YOU WISH.

The modern, commercialism driven, entitled society conceived notion that every guest should be served something that will completely address and satisfy his or her gustatory whim at every wedding that is ever planned, is patently absurd.

Your views are certainly NOT OTT, nor are the views of a recovering alcoholic who chooses to have a spirits free wedding based on their own personal convictions. 

This a strictly modern, materialistic exploitation that plays on the sensitivities of buyers who are Hell bent on making every guest feel as though they’re the most important person at the event. THEY’RE NOT!!!!! Caterers get wealthy on this sort of thinking. No guest will die at your wedding because they aren’t served a slab of beef.

BLESSINGS!

ethereal594 :  I’m not vegan, or vegetarian but, I do try few times a week not to eat meat, and I hope at some point be at least vegetarian. 

Now, I agree with you I think it would be a great opportunity for your guests to try something new plus, vegan food is always very good. 

If it were my wedding, I’d have vegan pasta, different sauces as well.. Just in case some people is not open to trying, I guess with pasta you can’t go wrong?! 

Anyway, post picures of your wedding and let us know about your menu. =) xx

Honeslty, I think you should still offer meat to those who prefer it.  Lots of people would be unhappy with a vegan-only menu/

I don’t know if I’m allowed to post links to other forums but this was a MASSIVE issue in the UK in May when some people refused to go to a vegan wedding! The general consensus was that this was very rude of the guests, who should be able to go without meat for a day.

I think the truth is that some people won’t enjoy the food as much as if there was meat, but you can’t please everyone. Whatever you choose, some people won’t like it. I say do it, as long as you provide food people can eat (e.g. You’ll need to provide for gluten free, no nuts etc), you are properly hosting the event and if your guests have a problem it is their problem.

ethereal594 :  as long as the food is delicious, recognizable, and plentiful then I would be happy to go to a vegan wedding. However as a non-vegan r I would am turned off by tofu, seitan, or meat substitutes and wouldn’t eat it. Pastas with veggies, a mashed potato bar, rice and bean dishes would all appeal to vegans and meat eaters alike!
