Many couples who get married offer the choice between beef, chicken and/or seafood. This often seems like a good option because this wide array of choices can please anyone. Well, almost anyone. What about vegetarians? Should you offer a vegetarian meal option at your wedding? Here are some things to take into consideration when choosing your wedding menu.
Vegetarians Attending the Wedding Reception
Unless you are having a very small wedding, it is unlikely that you are aware of each and every single person’s meal preferences. What about one of your mom’s co-workers or your great-aunt who you don’t even remember meeting? There is also a chance that one of your guest’s dates could be a vegetarian. Before you make the assumption that there will be no vegetarians at your wedding, keep in mind that there is a possibility that there may be.
Picky Eaters and People Who Prefer Meatless Options
Some people simply prefer meal options which do not include meat, even if they are not actually vegetarians. Others may be really picky about the way their meat is prepared, which may lead them to opt for a vegetarian meal. Others may find that meat tends to be too heavy or they may even be on a diet which does not include meat at the time of your wedding. This is also not to mention any religious beliefs or allergies which may prevent them from being able to eat one or more of the options on your wedding menu.
Vegetarian Options to Consider for Any Wedding
Even if there are no vegetarians attending your wedding, there are many meatless meal options that almost anyone will love. Stuffed portabella mushrooms can go over really well as appetizers. Pasta dishes, such as mushroom ravioli, always seem to go over very well with just about anyone. Vegetable napoleon and dishes using fresh mozzarella and basil also tend to be very popular choices.
It can be ideal for any couple who is getting married to consider offering a vegetarian meal option. You might not realize that there are vegetarians will be attending your wedding or one of your guests may require special food accommodations which do not consist of meat. Pasta and other vegetarian meal options can be enjoyed by almost anyone. Even if you are not a vegetarian yourself, it is best to give your guests the option to choose a meal which is not prepared with meat. While it is ultimately up to you and your fiancé, it would be wise to consider adding a vegetarian meal option to your wedding reception menu.
