How to Incorporate Vegan and Gluten Free Recipes into Wedding Menus

We will work with you to create a delicious gluten free menu!

You’re planning the wedding of your dreams, and you want everything to be just right for your family, your friends and other wedding guests. Enjoying the food, music and dancing at the reception is all a part of the celebration, on your big day!

However, what do you do for guests who are allergic to peanuts or who may be gluten free? With more people living on gluten free, Paleo, or other speciality diets, what do you do?

In the wedding invitation response, you may want to include a line asking about gluten free or food allergies, so you know how many servings to create. And you’ll want to ask questions to your caterer about gluten free options.

Some easy tips:

Often Mediterranean cuisine can accommodate gluten free or vegetarian recipes fairly easily.

In addition, a taco bar can include meat and vegetarian options easily, and your guests will have the option to choose what to put in their tacos!

What to do about the cake? The traditional wedding cake is made with sugar, eggs, and gluten. Are you looking for another option? Cheesecake is one alternative to consider. Gluten free cupcakes are also another delicious option.

Here, at Catering by Design, we can easily make creative arrangements for an individualized menu that incorporates gluten free and vegetarian options!
