Any Brides with Celiac Disease??

Just found the GF cards to bring to restaraunts. They have them in many languages. Like I said before too, I have brought them with me to Mexico before and had no problems. It was a little different, but this new one is a little more simple.

Gluten Free Restaurant Cards for Celiacs / Coeliacs
Posted 22 February 2010 - 03:42 PM
I just got back from our wedding in Mexico (January 26, 2010) and was REALLY IMPRESSED by the head chef at our resort (H10 Ocean Coral & Turquesa). My cousin has celiac disease, and the head chef was extremely accomodating, and made him special gluten free meals at the Welcome Dinner and Wedding Reception. He also offered to make my cousin gluten free pancakes in the mornings. The chef offered me a gluten-free wedding cake, but I didn't take it (my cousin is also allergic to dairy, and I didn't think a gluten-and-dairy free wedding cake would taste very good). However, the option was there. (Note we had an advance meeting with the head chef, organized by the wedding coordinator).
There were also several other guests at our wedding who had food allergies, and the chef was extremely accommodating and took all the allergies very seriously. In general, the food was absolutely DELICIOUS - fresh, healthy, good quality. Check out the Ocean Coral & Turquesa thread for more details about this resort - I highly recommend it! (It's beautiful, they have a great wedding coordinator, great food, great service, etc!!)
Best of luck!

You should let your MOH know that we were at EPM last March and my FI didn't get sick once (which is amazing)!

We're just hoping that it all works out and I'm thinking of taking a box of gluten free cake mix with me just in case!
Do you have a copy of these cards?
