    I’m not a vegan/vegetarian, but my food choices are also limited, I have coeliac disease.

    While most of the time no one notices the food I cook or bake is gluten-free; we don’t plan on having a gluten/allergen free menu at our wedding. Mostly because I want to cater to the majority of my guests.

    We’ll be baking our own cake & cupcakes though, so I (and my Mom, sister & cousin) will be able to enjoy.

    I’ve got the vegetarian tick but not the bride tick yet so I can’t tell you my catering plans. But I think one vegetarian option on a standard menu is a good mix, right? Cos there’s normally only 2 or 3 choices anyway.

    I’m a veg and we’re having a pig roast because my Fiance wants that. We’ll have veggie burgers and tons of vegetarian sides as well. It’s a personal choice for me and not a lifestyle that Fiance and I live so I’m not offended by meat being served at my parties.

    I was a vegetarian for 15 years and recently begun eating meat due to dietary requirements and atheltics.

    Our wedding will be very friendly for vegetarians as almost all of my family is vegeterian. I do have some vegans on my side as well and have tried to figure out options for them as well.

    @catres:That is exciting! We are aiming for a vegan wedding also.

    I’m making our cupcakes, the one’s from the kind diet and they are yummy. We might make vegetarian because our venue doesn’t really do vegan but they said they’ll try but I’m kinda worried it won’t be as delicious as I know vegan food can be. 

    What exactly are you ladies going to have? I’m still trying to figure out what exactly I want made for my guest and myself.

    @xicaB I’m narrowing down the details still and finalizing a venue.  Thanks to Chelsea Clinton, lots of NY and even son NJ and PA venues have stepped up the vegan wedding offerings.  I had each venue send me a copy of a vegan menu they’ve done before or would do for us and insisted on tasting something even if I just went for brunch (so glad I did, because some places while not bad just taste like “wedding food” as my Fiance said.  If you’re getting hitched in SF I’d be surprised if they couldn’t do it somewhat well all the amazing local produce and excellent Italian, Mexican, Asian food there I bet they could devise a neat vegan menu for you.

    We are having one meat option and one veggie option. I am vegtarian and have been since birth and he was raised redneck (hunting and fishing) and I have to dealw with some good-natured ribbing by his dad’s side of the family. So we are keeping it both veggie and meat eater friend.

    I wouldn’t go totally vegan because some people might not appriciate having their food choices dictated to them. I know his family would FREAK. But I have also heard of some people doing all vegan and their friends and family being fine.

    While we’re both omnivores, we have vegetarian friends and will be focusing on a yummy menu for them as well. No standard grilled veggie plate for them!

    I am vegetarian!  We will have plenty of veggie options since it’s family style Italian.  I will be working with the venue to offer some vegan choices, especially since on of our GM’s is vegan.  I do cook vegan a lot, but I’m still a vegetarian.  My Fiance is an omnivore, but loves vegan cooking and vegan desserts : )   Everyone in my family is an omnivore (except for one veggie cousin), and I bring vegan dishes and they love them which makes me happy.

    @LadyX: I looooove The Kind Diet.  That is where I get most of my recipes from.  Actually, that book is how I became a veggie : )  I try to eat vegan most of the time.  I’ve only made one dessert out of that book and I believe it was the Peach Cobbler, it was for Thanksgiving last year.

    I’m in the same boat. I’m a vegetarian, but Fiance is opposite & the majority of our guests will be meat eaters. We are going to have bbq, mac & cheese, twice baked mashed potatoes (bacon on the side), grilled veggies, and a few side salads for our vegetarian guests.

    I’d love to have my entire wedding be vegetarian, but I’m wondering how open his family will be (I’m the only vegetarian they know…I think they think I eat grass :P). I’m all for an entirely veggie party! It’s only one day!

    My husband and I are both vegetarian but our familys are completely opposite, so we tried choosing a menu that catered to meat eaters without being explicitly “meaty,” like grilled cheese sandwiches and quesadillas.  They aren’t vegan, but they’re not covered in meat.  I feel your pain though… All of our relatives call us hippies… -__-
