So, I feel like this is a bit of a silly question, though I still don’t feel set on an answer. So opinions are appreciated. 🙂
We’re having enough people invited to the wedding who are vegan, that it made sense to have a vegan rather than a vegetarian meal option. On the invite, we’re giving people the 3 meal choices (we have to give a count to the venue), and I’m stuck on whether to put “vegetarian” or “vegan.” The meal will be vegan, though I feel like steak, chicken, or vegetarian looks better than steak, chicken, or vegan. But maybe I’m just being silly with this. Probably am.
So, what should I put? Vegetarian or vegan?

if it will be vegan say vegan…..they will appreciate the clarity

I would put vegan so your vegan guests know there will be food they can eat. Otherwise, they may assume that they will not be able to eat the vegetarian option. I don’t think it looks weird and I plan on doing the same thing because we have several vegan guests.

Yep, agree with PP. If they’re vegan, they’re going to want to know that the meal is properly vegan, not vegetarian, as they are quite different (or so my carnivore self has been told). Vegan is such a common word now, it definitely won’t look weird on the response card.

Thanks everyone. I think sometimes I just need validation of the obvious.

Vegetarian implies that you still intake animal dairy and produce
Vegan -no animal whatso ever
Go with Vegan that way your guest are not confused or go through your party feeling guilty.
