Me and my fiancé are vegan and will obviously want some fab vegan food at the wedding, what type of meal ideas do you al think will please everyone?
If you have an array of dishes your sure to please everyone's dietary needs. Just make sure it's all labelled lol x
Hi I agree with Karin :)
i agree with karin x
I agree with Karin too.
We're vegan and having a 100% vegan wedding, I'm not paying thousands for food and drink I ethically disagree with! We're having an afternoon tea with sandwiches, cakes, scones etc which the venue are happy to make vegan and evening buffet with potato wedges and other snacks bits. Also having a sweet table so people can pick from that too
I'm not a vegan but do enjoy vegan food and opt for vegetarian options mostly.
I really like the 'raw' type vegan chocolate desserts and cakes that you can get, even my meat-loving fiancé thinks they are fab! Curry is another dish that you can have vegan easily and people are likely to love it - spicy tomato based like a madras.
Not to be rude but you should maybe put on a few non vegan dishes too. If you are a guest at a wedding im sure you would be given a vegan meal and not expected to eat the same meal as everyone else....but ultimately it is your day and if you are not happy serving non vegan meals then you don't have to xx
I'm vegetarian but will still be serving meat option. There'll be a choice of veggie or meat for guests. I don't feel it's up to me to impose food that not everyone will enjoy and I love my friends and family and want them comfortable. I'd expect them to accommodate my meal choices so I will theirs.
Sadly, at the venue I've chosen to get married at (it's my 2nd choice, my first was too expensive), the only vegan food they'll prepare for vegans is samosas, a bowl of salad and a Mexican bean salad. I'm a bit pissed off, but we've already spoken to the registrar, so we're stuck with the venue. I've advised my vegan guests (we're vegetarian) that Prezzo do really good vegan food, as there aren't any vegan restaurants in Letchworth and they're more than welcome to pop out for food if what's going on provided, isn't enough. The venue won't allow me to make my own food.
I'm making my own to take for myself and a few others :)
Leek and almond creamy tart, aubergine parmigiana, chocolate torte with soy whip. Will also be making some vegan brioche style rolls to go along with nibbles after the ceremony. Our wedding cakes are all vegan and delicious - vanilla, red velvet and a pumkin spice along with oreo, raspberry ruffle and carrot cake cupcakes.
I go once a month to a cafe where everything is vegetarian and some of the food is vegan. They do a hummus sandwich with salad and crisps, and a cheese sandwich with vegan cheese. They also do a vegan chile con carne which is really nice. They have a vegan chocolate cake, vegan ice cream and vegan custard with apple crumble.
I went to a vegan fair (not vegan but I like food!) a stall there was called TexMex and they were vegan based. Did nachos with chilli and chickpea “cheese” sauce. Really nice. Also went to vegetarian wedding recently with lots of rice dishes that were full of flavour. Amazing
I'm not vegetarian or vegan but love the food options & ethically agree totally with it, despite not havibg the willpower myself. I wouldn't expect non meat eaters to be buying me a meal that they don't agree with.
Personally I love chilli, veggie burgers, cous cous dishes, pasta, curries etc & I'm sure they're relatively easy to make vegan versions. I know most venues insist on their own caterers but it might be worth seeing what their charge is to use your own choice of caterers x
I agree with Niamh, I'm a meat eater but I would appreciate that if I'm attending a wedding that both couples are vegan then they may not want to pay for food they have an ethical problem with purchasing. I would perhaps use it as an opportunity to show that there are some incredible vegan options nowadays- who knows you may convince a few meat eaters that there are other options and that might make then in turn think about vegan alternatives and cut down on their meat consumption. Obviously it would depend on what your venue can offer, I would only serve food that will showcase how good vegan alternatives can be! Tricky one but ultimately follow your gut, as everyone says it's your day! good luck with whatever you decide.
Vegan pulled pork!
I went to a wedding recently, the bride was vegan and the groom vegetarian. They also had vegan friends I’m sure but their main meal for guests was roast beef. There was just this one choice but they had other options for people who have dietary requirements In advance. They also had a cheese board later in the night with vegan options. It really is up to you, if you are happy to pay for the food. It will be difficult to please everybody!
I do think you should offer a meat dish too, I respect your beliefs and I’d cater for them at my wedding but perhaps meat eaters should be catered for too? X
We're both vegetarian and our wedding breakfast is going to be completely vegetarian- there's no way that we are paying for something we're ethically against. Our caterer is a vegan so we know that we're in good hands- his food is amazing! Your wedding should be a celebration of you as a couple and to share what you both love. I wouldn't say that it's 'imposing' anything on anybody since it's just the one day and plant based meals can be so exciting! Besides, if we have friends or family round for dinner I would't cook meat so whats' the difference for a wedding? We are keeping everyone happy by having pizza in the evening :)
Jennifer Ginley-Hagan can you help?
I'm vegan and h2b is vegetarian so we are having a totally veg friendly wedding. If we are spending thousands on food I don't want to be paying for food I don't ethically agree with. Nobody needs meat for every meal and even meat eaters still eat lots of vegan options without even realising. Things like curries, bean chilli, soups and stews can easily please everyone and be vegan. We are having a chickpea curry, falafel burger, bean casserole and veg version of fish and chips. I am making my own desert table and cake and these will all be vegan too. Good luck and hopefully you can show people it's easy to have delicious meat free meals!
Have a look at Asian food (Thai, Japanese, some Chinese) like Indian dishes; most are vegetarian and can quite easily be altered to vegan :)
Risote is always good, otherwise Asian and/or thia
