- Wedding: September 2017
I just don’t see why other people’s meal preferences are such a big deal? I’ve been a vegetarian for nearly 15 years, but my Fiance is very much a meat eater. For me, I am totally okay with serving meat at our wedding. I just want to be sure that for once there are plenty of options that I can choose from! We have opted to have a “fancy” pizza party- there will be meat, veg, vegan and gluten free options available as well as a selection of small plates and salad.
Food is food. It makes sense for vegetarians to have a menu that reflected their personal preferences, but I can see how some people might try to persuade them to include something meaty.
This is a really interesting discussion. If it’s a values thing, I don’t see a problem with it being entirely vegetarian/vegan, as long as it ensures that there is food guests will a) be willing to eat and enjoy, and b) enough of it. I for one think that mock meat can be absolutely delicious lol and would be more than willing to eat that if served at a wedding.
I have been taken to hospital in a mobile intensive care ambulance after a restaurant decided that vegetarian meant they could put fish stock in their rissotto. So yeah it is rather a big deal.
I was a vegetarian for over three years, and was still a vegetarian when I first got engaged. I have since given it up, but the conversation DID come up between myself and DH about the menu. My stance always was not to push my vegetarianism on people. Even when I hosted dinner parties I still cooked a meat dish for my non-veggie guests (I could cook chicken pretty good from memory without having to taste it). By the time the wedding rolled around I had started eating a little white meat again for health reasons so it was moot.
I dont see why not. My fiance is a recovery alcoholic and we will not be serving any alcohol at our wedding. so i cant see any reason why a vegeterian should not have the food selections that make them most comfortable at their own wedding that they are paying for. I am not there for food, I am there for the celebration of a marriage.
Although I do like my vegetables, I prefer to eat them with a little bit of meat. It would be nice if they serve some meat or meat alteranatives, but if it is against their beliefs than I wouldn’t expect it. It really depends on why they are a vegetarian in the first place
I can deal with no liquor. I cannot deal with no meat (unless of course for religious reasons).
I’m a vegetarian. If my fiancé didn’t eat meat there is no way I would have any meat at the wedding. It’s cheaper and I would have more options/be able to eat everything on the menu. It also wouldn’t make sense to me to purchase meat when I don’t want to feed the industry.
Also, if I’m not cooking the food I always feel like I have to thoroughly inspect it before eating it if it’s not a vegetarian reaturaunt. Too often i have found bacon or chicken in my supposedly “vegetarian” meal. I would prefer not to do that on my wedding day.
