    I have a handful of vegetarians.  My caterer is making a veggie lasagna for those few guests.

    Try asking for the one serving–the caterers have probably come across something similar already and could probably make it work.

    Even though it’s buffet, can you talk to your caterer and have a plated meal option (like veggie lasagna) for your one guest?

    None of the pasta options work well with pasta salad, unfortunately. 🙁

    I think you should talk to your caterer about the option of just one or two vegetarian plates. I think this is more common than you think.

    However, if you do decide to substitute one of your entrees, I would advice against the cheese lasagna. If you’re having party potatoes, that can be a whole lotta cheese. I would go with the veggie lasagna since it seems like you might be a little short in the vegetable category. Yes a salad is nice, but between the pasta salad, corn, potatoes, rolls–that’s a lot of starch.

    I wouldn’t change it for one guest. You have salad right? if anything they can load up on that. Esp since it’s a buffet, that way they can have as much salad as they want. I wouldn’t compromise for a meal neither you or FO are crazy about.

    If you’re pretty close to the guest who’s a vegetarian I might just call them and ask.

    Personally, if I was at your wedding I would fill my plate with potatoes, corn, salad, rolls and pasta salad and be perfectly happy. I’m not really a fan of most vegetable lasagnas because they use a lot of squash. So if you do end up getting a single serving I’d make sure it’s something the guest would actual care to eat or if they’d be fine with what you have. I don’t like having to make people go out of their way, but I’d appreciate being asked.

    I’d be happy with the veggie options you have, but the safest bet is to call and ask what your guest would prefer! Kudos for not having slabs of meat and a lettuce salad and that’s it. 😉
