Have any of you requested a special entree for guests who are vegetarian? If so, what kind of items did your venue suggest? We have a vegetable kabob on our menue but there must be some other ideas. Come on ladies, help my creative juices flow!

hey Lizzy! i had 2 vegetarians at my WD so i requested 2 special meals. my wedding was a buffet with plenty of options, so i didn't have to worry that night. but for my vegetarians, they both eat fish - so that's what they were served.

 

my sis (the vegetarian) often eats some fancy portobello meals - often prepared the same as the meat being served, just with a mushroom!

I am a vegetarian. Wedding dinner vegetarian options I have enjoyed most are Eggplant (a great dish - eggplant rollatinis, they had spinach & cheese with marinara sauce, yum!), Portabello Mushrooms, & some of the pasta dishes.

We made sure that we would have a lot of pastas with our meal so that our vegetarian guest (yep, just the one) would have something good to eat! Most places are happy to help!

OK - about 1/3 of our guests were vegetarians. We added a pasta bar station with three types of pasta (penne, cheese tortellini & fettucine). We changed beef turnovers to spinach and mushroom empanadas.

 

At our welcoem dinner we had them offer grilled vegetable tacos, quesadillas, etc.

lol me too! Thank goodness it's almost lunch.

 

This is one of the things I need to talk to Mariana about. Aaron's mom is a vegetarian and strongly prefers not to eat anything that has touched meat, or a sauce that is aided with meat (like gravy) etc. We'll see what Mariana's solutions are. The menu has a few good options that might work.

 

Thanks for the reminder though, I have to add that to the list of questions for her! :)

We had two strict vegetarians so I had the hotel make them food (outside of our buffets). The vegetable kabobs are a good idea. Beans, though, typically have lard in them so you really need to watch things like that.

 

I would ask the vegetarians to make a list of two or three easy things that they like rather than try to guess.

 

Also, don't count on them eating a salad (lettuce) as lettuce is typically something you want to avoid in Mexico. Vegetables should be cooked.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
