    My SIL had brownies and cupcakes at her wedding. The cupcakes went WAY faster than the brownies. People took both but the cupcakes were gone pretty fast.

    I’m celiac, and honestly, I’d be touched that you considered a Girlfriend option. But most gf substitutes are TERRIBLE so ask your friend if there’s a place she recommends.

    For my wedding, I was able to order gf cupcakes but it did take some hunting around for ones that didn’t taste like sawdust.

    You could also do macarons, which are naturally gluten free (since they are made with almond flour) as long as the filling doesn’t contain gluten.

    I would eat whatever the non-dairy/egg option would be, which is usually… nothing 🙁 

    Food sensitivities are my biggest bummer when I attend weddings because I cannot have dairy or eggs. If you have any guests that have sensitivities, the reception can be even more welcoming and enjoyable for those attending if you are aware and can make an accomodation with you caterer/baker 🙂



    edit: i see you are making a consideration for your friend with celiac’s! but maybe do a general inquiry for other guests who are RSVPing if they have a specific allergy for them as well? obviously not required but always touching and sweet

    brideandblue :  I just wanted to mention that I am not someone who eats gluten-free, but absolutely love gluten-free brownies.  My friend brought some to a party once, and I became obsessed.  They were so fudgey and amazing.  I started buying gluten-free brownie mix after that.  (And I dislike most gluten free items.  The only other item that is better than normal when gluten-free is crunchy pretzels, in my opinion.)  Anyway, if the gluten-free brownies are not overly expensive compared to normal brownies, you could consider just getting a bunch of them so anyone can eat them.  Then you won’t have to worry about your guests who aren’t gluten free discovering how delicious they are and eating them all!

    Now I want a brownie 🙁

    I make cakes, so I’ll always go for something different than cake/cupcakes, I also happen to be obsessed with chocolate. So in all honesty, if there was only gluten-free brownies, I may take one even though I don’t need gluten-free. 

    ETA – just saw your update (sorry, should have read 2nd page first!) When I had requests like this for wedding orders, I would make a separate box with just the gluten-free items and put them in the kitchen. There is usually a venue contact there when I set up, so I let them know where the gf treats are and they can let the bride or guest know where they can find their treats. That way it doesnt accidentally end up getting eaten by guests without sensitivites.

    I wouldn’t bother with a gluten free option.  The top tier of our wedding cake was gluten free as we had about 8 gluten free guests. None of them touched the cake, even though they knew it was gluten free. Guess they’re used to not eating it.
