It's a long time since I've been to a wedding and never as a vegan, I'm going to a wedding in December and the bride has asked me for suggestions for a vegan meal. I don't want to be any trouble to her or the hotel, but I will need to give her some suggestions. If you are vegan can you give me some idea of what you've been offered at weddings? Thank you
We had a vegetarian wedding breakfast but I think the main part of the course was actually vegan- it was a strudel with roast vegetables and pinenuts. So long as you can get vegan pastry, something like a pie type thing could work nicely and go well with the other trimmings?
Their caterer should be able to do this at the drop of a hat, if they're using one. They have to be able to cope with every variation of dietary requirement. We were invited to a wedding breakfast the day before, an 'upgrade' from evening only as someone had dropped out, and, as the only vegan, there was not only dinner but vegan canapés. It wasn't grand, just using competent caterers.
Anyway, the strudel idea is good, stuffed squash or other vegetables, with tomato sauce, can taste good, look pretty and is easy to assemble, I've eaten both at weddings.
Lottie thats exactly what I hoped to hear, that the cater will be able to do this at a drop of a hat. All suggestions look good, and while I will make some suggestions I will ask what they can offer me first as I don't want to be a pain demanding specific food. I don't make a big fuss about my food, I know from a menu what I can eat and may ask for reasurrance that it's suitable for vegans but I can't read off a menu for this one.
Attended a wedding last summer where the whole menu was vegan (inc the evening buffet). We had the following On table - bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar Starter - spicy tomato and pepper soup Main - pasta dish with roasted veg, "pesto" Sweet - dark choc and orange tart
Buffet - "sausage rolls", open sandwiches, "pizza"
