hmm well I’m probably guilty–usually I’m honestly just trying to be helpful, in case the poster has forgotten to consider vegetarian options. As someone who has been a vegetarian for 24 years (since I was 4), I have been in many situations, including many weddings, where there is literally nothing I can eat besides side dishes, and it sucks to have that happen! so yeah, I do say it to try to be constructive. I’m not sure I word it exactly like that, but I’m sure I’ve said something to that affect. 

And also, I don’t think it’s necessarily condescending in the way you’re implying–I’m absolutely, 100000% not horrified by other people’s dietary decisions. I’m actually less strict than a lot of vegetarians because it’s not an ethical thing for me, it’s just a preference. Maybe I’m weird, but not all vegetarians base their decision on philosophical ideas, and not all are judgey of others.

On your question about menus, we had a lot of vegetarian guests, so we had a vegan option. our guests chose between beef, fish, or vegan on their rsvp cards.

I’ve mentioned it a few times, but hopefully not in an obnoxious way. My husband is a vegetarian and I’m not, so usually in those types of threads I give my meat preference or suggestion that the OP asked for, and then possibly throw in something about a veg. option. I never mention the veg. options because I’m horrified that people are eating meat. I only started doing that after my husband came to a wedding with me with no vegetarian option. The salad was Caesar and even the side dishes all had bacon or some kind of meat involved. We didn’t know any of this beforehand and the waitstaff said there were no other options available. There were a few other pissed off people and the hosts said it wasn’t their fault, and that the vegetarians should know to eat before weddings of people that eat meat. We left that wedding pretty quickly.

I had one vegan, one vegetarian, and I guess my father who is sort of a vegetarian. I had one vegan meal for that guest (the officiant’s wife) although I can’t even remember what we served her and a fish option for the vegetarians, who will eat the fish. As far as I know the three people got their meals and all went well. For the passed hors d’oeuvres we had a few vegetarian options and we had three stations, one being pasta, one being sushi and one being meat. I didn’t realize one of the pastas would have a meat sauce (I didn’t read too carefully) but there were other vegetarian pastas too. Everyone commented about how much food we had, my dad raved about it and the vegan guest also mentioned the good food. So I’m pretty sure I did good as far as satisfying them.
