looks and SOUNDS so good! All i need to hear is butternut squash ravioli and my stomach starts to gurgle at me. it seems like such a rich and diverse menu that i dont think any carnivores would miss or even notice that it was meat free.

So you're pescatarians and you expect all of your guests to eat as you do. I'm getting married and I have to cater for vegetarians, vegans, gluten allergies, people who only eat raw food and an animal rights activist who has said that they will be offended if I serve a whole pig as one of my courses.

I'm going to start putting "meat" on my reply when asked if I have any dietry requirements.

Oh, and I'm now surer than ever that I'm going to have a whole pig. A massive one. I may even scrap the whole "alternative" menu.

Thanks!

So you're a carnivore and you expect all of your guests to eat as you do? I'm sure that pig won't offend any of your kosher guests. Maybe add nuts to everything so your nut-allergy friends have a nice time at the wedding? I thought the point of a wedding CELEBRATION menu was to provide delicious food that will allow your guests to enjoy themselves at the event. At least one vegetarian option is almost always provided at major dining events (even at the gun club!). If a lack of meat is going to ruin your evening, that is a problem in and of itself. Do you eat meat at every meal? Bacon in those cheerios I presume? You've never had a delicious meat-free pasta dish? Now that it is a tragedy. No one wants to force their ideals on anyone. These pescatarians are not having only fish dishes, they have selections for vegans, vegetarians, and carnivores. If they don't support the meat industry in their daily lives, why should they be forced to purchase meat products (they pay for the meals) for THEIR big day? IMHO, that would be ridiculous.

sarah, your menu sounds so delicious! yum.

wow, sounds delicious to me! and the late-night french fries with horseradish is the best idea. I wouldn't worry about there being no meat, you have wonderful options for your guests. plus, it's your day :)

Yowza!

Your choices are lovely and thoughtful, it's your wedding, and polite, gracious wedding guests should never complain about the menu.
