    I think it’d be fun! My Maid/Matron of Honor had a vegan wedding and brunch, and there was some tasty stuff there. I love trying new stuff!

    Because this is a smaller brunch at your house I think you get a lot more leeway then if you were throwing a big party. And of all the meals to make vegan, brunch seems pretty safe. As long as you have some crowd favorites like you mention (pancakes, fruit, etc) I think it’ll be just fine. 🙂

    I think the best part about making a meal that suits your dietary needs is shocking people about how good things can be, and how familiar they can be, even without meat and cheese!

    I voted the “Maybe” option.

    But I personally would want to have some cheese! I love cheese though, so I’m a bit biased (hence why I voted the “maybe” option).

     

    It really depends on your guests though. (For example: I would love to have Ethiopian cuisine for the dinner at my wedding, and I know my side of the family would be fine with that, but fiance’s family likes more traditional American food and would be like “what the hell is this?!”, so I nixed the idea.)

    I wouldn’t eat tofu and tons of veggies like mushrooms dishes but would be just fine eating pancakes, fruit and french toast!

    I’m all for the tofu!  If you cook it just right, some people don’t even know it’s tofu!  I think an all vegan brunch is cool.  I would do it!

    I’m a very picky eater, so I don’t know if I’d actually like the food, but I think it would be fun to try it all!

    I would definitely try everything, and since you have some classics like fruit and pancakes no one should go hungry!

    Good food is good food. Period.

    I love the idea. And there are plenty of vegan dishes that are totally crowd-friendly, as you know. Find a good caterer, try their wares, and make some converts!

    My guy and I are major meat eaters, but we’re planning on having a vegan friend over for wine-pong and vegan spaghetti (she’s bringing tiramisu).  Quite frankly, I’m enjoying trying to figure out a filling vegan meal.  I’d include some non-tofu protein (my guys gets grumpy without protein – but that can just be a couple of almonds), but really, it’s not a terrible thing to eat a vegan meal.

    I wouldn’t have any problem eating whatever you served! Pumpkin french toast sounds *amazing*, btw!!!!!

    One thing I’ve found in dealing with less adventurous eaters is to not make a big deal about telling them what they are eating beforehand (unless you think there might be an allergy issue, of course). If you are having a smaller dinner party, or brunch, it’s not always necessary to say “oh, and this is TOFU” – just present your dishes. It seems like so many people just think they don’t like things or won’t like things and then never try them. If they don’t know they are about to eat something they “don’t like”, more times than not they actually like it.  Have fun!

    Go for it! I find that it’s almost best not to point out that it’s all vegan/vegetarian food when it happens, because it seems like people don’t really notice until you point it out.
