Q. – I’m a vegan. I really don’t want to serve meat or other animal products at my wedding. Am I expected to?
A. – No you do not have to serve animal products. It’s your wedding and you can serve (or not serve) whatever you choose.
Your wedding reception is to celebrate your brand new marriage, and create a wedding day that represents you and your fiancé. The choices you make – flowers, music, food, etc. – will reflect the two of you. So naturally, if your personal dietary choices lean towards or away from something specific, it is absolutely ok for you to include those choices in your wedding day meal.
You are not “making a statement” or trying to convert anyone. Instead you are staying true to yourself by following this dietary choice.
A good caterer will be able to create for you a delicious, flavorful menu that will keep your guests tummys happy, yet follow your daily dietary guidelines.
We all know the importance food plays in any get-together. As long as you serve good food, your guests will survive. Pick foods that are colorful and full of flavor and you will have a big hit. Ok, at first some of your guests may wonder what’s on their plates, but since your caterer has whipped up something that smells amazing, and tastes great, their focus on the food will soon be back where it should be, (Mmmmm, this is good!)
Hearts, Joy, Love!
