Ok, I’m not a hard sale because I am a vegetarian.  But, I’d just like to say that the whole menu sounds DELISH, I’d be soooo thrilled to go to your wedding!  I do think meat eaters will be full, for sure.  Will they be ‘satisfied’, maybe not all of them will be, but a lil less meat might be just what those folks need!  I do think overall, this will be just fine.  Can I come?  ๐Ÿ™‚

That sounds ridiculously good to me, but I’m a vegetarian. ๐Ÿ™‚ Most people I know would be more than happy with that menu.

Well, my mom is a vegetarian, so I grew up eating veggie and choose it a lot, but boy that menu sounds awesome!

Two thoughts: I would offer a grown-up grilled cheese for the least adventurous in your crowd. I would also consider replacing the couscous with a rissotto, if possible. Rissotto is rather filling, so the picky people may just find that to be their thing.

Honestly, though, I would love your wedding.

I agree that you should replace the cous cous with something more hearty.  Although I think everything you listed sounds yummy, I do thing that the meat and potato lovers at your wedding will be disappointed.  Try to add a risotto as suggested above, or a pasta.

Can I please come to your wedding! I’m a vegetarian as well and I think the panini menu is 1) super cute 2) super delicious sounding! (I’m also having a vegetarian wedding – booyah!)

One suggestion, that you should feel no particular pressure to take: if you are worried about satisfying meat eaters, an egg-heavy option often works well.  We did a souffle; if you are wanting to stick to sandwiches, then one with a fried egg in it might work.

I’m a meat eater, and your menu sounds deliciousssss. I agree on an adult grilled cheese because while some may be willing to try new things, some people like to stick to what they know.  Everything sounded so yummy though!

Maybe I’m picky but the only thing that I like the sound of is the panini menu!

I second the pasta. Is there a way to have that too or no?

I’m not a vegetarian and always have meat with lunch/dinners unless I’m eating pasta. I LOVE pasta and will eat any kind. But I’ve never in my life had a veggie sandwich of any kind. Never had cous cous or gazpacho soup before so not sure about those…I guess I’m a “simple” eater. LOL

So I think I wouldn’t be happy with the food selections, BUT (and this is a big but) I wouldn’t care all that much because it is your wedding day. I would just stop and get something to eat after I left the reception if I was still hungry. You should have what YOU want! ๐Ÿ™‚

I am a meat eater and your menu sounds really good.  Im a picky eater but everything sounds really good.  I love the panini option.  I have paninis for dinner and usually those alone are enough to fill me up!

I am a meat-eater but your menu sounds SO tasty!  Yum!  Great options and a good variety.  It frustrates me (even as a non-vegetarian) that people automatically assume all vegetarians eat is salad and veggies.  I mean really – your menu shows how much variety you can have and how delicious non-meat food can be!  Great menu!

If the people around you know you and know that you are a vegitarian, I wouldn’t worry about it at all. The menu sounds deelish and I’m definately one of the meat and taters girls.  ๐Ÿ˜‰  mmm paninis.
