I have about 10 vegan guests at my wedding of 150. I put a bunch of vegan/vegetarian options on my menu because I want them to enjoy themselves and a good thing to remember is that ANYONE can eat those dishes, but not everyone eats meat so why not have both? I enjoy a good steak, but love a veggie pasta too!

See but I would feel awful if it came to that! But it’s good to hear another perspective.
Just curious: are you still vegetarian, or do you now eat everything?

You know who can also be super annoying? Carnivores. And vegetarians. And gluten-free friends. And friends who don’t like artichokes. Any group of people, in fact. Teenagers. Cat-haters. Someone’s food choices shouldn’t be joked about any less than calling someone a word. Sorry if you’re offended but as someone with a few deadly allergies, I can assure you it isn’t fun to be “that gal.”
You (or our parents, joint families, etc.) are hosting this event as a celebration of our marriage. That includes dealing with the occasional dietary issue be it vegan, vegetarian or otherwise. That’s what being a good host is about.

Who said anyone was annoyed? Because I made a joke? Gosh…

At this point, yes. We’re going to have two options: surf n turf and vegetarian pasta. I want to eat it all. I’m going to wait till we’re closer to the date to see if she’s still vegan, and also get an idea of other guests’ dietary restrictions (I have a feeling my two cousins from Colorado are lactose intolerant), and then figure out the best way to accommodate everyone. I don’t want anyone to feel singled out and I don’t want anyone to have nothing to eat.

Was vegan for 3 years, and have been vegetarian for a year (so no meat for 4 years). Are you having sit down meals, or buffet style? I went to a wedding of a friend who had buffet style food, they had lots of fruit & veggies, and hummus and pita bread. The veggie pasta is a really good idea, it’s cheap and if you do buffet style I’m sure your other guests will eat it too!
