The current movements towards fresh and organic, farm to table, vegetarian and plant based diets have spilled over into the wedding and event industry. In addition to thinking about the food allergies of their guests, many wedding couples are now looking to cater to the dietary needs and lifestyles of their friends and family too.
If you are looking to have a vegetarian wedding and are searching for vegetarian venues, here are some tips to remember:
Rather than solely focusing on locating specific vegetarian venues for weddings, remember that your favorite vegetarian restaurant may be able to double as a wedding venue. If you have a favorite vegetarian restaurant, inquire to see if they are capable of hosting your wedding. If they are not equipped with enough event space, perhaps they can offer you off-site catering. It can’t hurt to ask!
Many vegetarian venues will provide you with the opportunity to come in for a tasting to sample their vegetarian menu offerings. You will want to taste the foods that will be served at your wedding to ensure that you like the options available. Use the tasting as your chance to experience the menu and to put together the appetizers, main courses and side dishes that you think will please your guests. Don’t forget about dessert!
Perhaps in your search for vegetarian venues you realize that you want to broaden your menu to include both vegetarian options and meals for your meat-eating guests. Most venues today will offer you several vegetarian appetizers and main course options to meet the needs of your vegetarian and meatless guests. Consult the caterer at your venue to discuss your needs in order to learn the options available to you.
Remember that within your AllSeated guest list, you have the ability to track the meal types of your guests. Consider asking guests when they RSVP to your wedding to let you know if they have specific meal requirements and dietary needs.
