I don’t know if it’s fancy enough for your wedding but vegetarian lasagne is pretty tasty.

Here is a recipe for a delicious lemon basil pasta that might work:

Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 lemon
1 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
8 fresh basil leaves, finely sliced
2 tsp finely chopped parsley
3 oz angelhair pasta
Freshly ground pepper
Grated parmesan cheese

Put the lemon zest, lemon juice, butter, oil, and herbs in a bowl large enough to hold the cooked pasta comfortably. Bring water to a boil, add salt to taste, and add the pasta. Cook until al dente. Drain the noodles in a colander and add immediately to the large bowl. Repeatedly lift the noodles with a pair of tongs to coat them with the sauce. Add a bit of pepper and top with parmesan cheese.

maybe a stir fry of some sort with tofu? Alot of my vegan friends eat alot of rice and tofu, that would be easy to make for a small or large amount of people.

I am a vegetarian and have had some really bad veggie wedding meals.  I think keeping it simple is the best way to go some pasta dish with protein, nuts (altough this is bad for allergies), tofu or something or a nice black bean or 3 bean salad.  If you have any vegans I would stay away from cheese and egg dishes.

I love this dish its sort of fancier: http://dianacooks.com/2009/05/02/golden-sesame-tofu/

With steamed white rice that would be awesome.

Do you have a theme to the other dishes or anything so it could be tailored to that?

Heres a whole list of fancy veggie/vegan dishes: http://www.vegan-nutritionista.com/vegan-wedding-menu.html

Since I don’t eat meat but my guests do, at my wedding I will have a meat dish, a bean dish and or a pasta one, maybe both.  The most important thing about which ever veggie meal you make is to make sure it has protein otherwise your veggie guests will be hungry again earlier than they need to be.

For example, if you made that pasta dish by PP (which is lovely I may try it myself!)  then have some hummus and crackers as an appetizer for the protein.

We had a vegan entree, which I ate and so did my brother and 4 other guests (of 82). I was a grilled veggie stack over calypso rice. I was really delicious. There’s a portobella mushroom at the bottom.

@mrsSonthebeach:  This is exactly what they tried to serve me at the last wedding I went to.  It must have not been executed well because it was horrible!  The rice was mushy, the veggies had char but were raw and it had no flavor.

As lovely as vegetables can be when they are well made, Mrs Christopher is right, they’ll need some protein to get them ready for a night of dancing =). I’d say, if the people doing the cooking are not familiar with the recipe, make it something REALLY hard to get wrong. Glad to see people taking vegetarians into consideration!
