Wedding planning can be so hectic that soon-to-be wives become bridezillas and soon-to-be husbands just wanna go back to their man den with their friends and play Call of Duty along with a late-night pizza party. From the outlook of it all, weddings seem to be a one-day or night event and everything goes back to normal, however for many soon-to-be-married couples to get to that point involves several frustrating arguments and exhaustion just to get everything “PERFECT!”.
With planning comes catering decisions, what should be on the menu and what shouldn’t. Some couples seem to incorporate the likings of the 100-1000 guests attending the wedding, while some just prefer what they might want to eat at their wedding. After all, it is “The Couples” day to shine.
On the other hand, however, this specific incident is not about the majority having a specific liking, rather friends plus one girlfriend who is “GlutenFreegGan” (Gluten-Free Vegan) having dietary restrictions, and here are some responses to the event that took place.
Seems to be starting off like any other wedding planning process which in this case atm is catering menu decisions.
Here lurks in the main cause of concern, the GlutenFreeGan plus one girlfriend is in the process to generalize such a healthy lifestyle all around her.
The paranoia of Lactose and Gluten Vegan options, got her sliding into the Brides DM’s unsolicited.
The Bride tried to attend to one guest but there were limited Vegan options that still included Gluten and were accepted by all other guests attending the wedding.
This must’ve added pressure on the already so hectic planning process, just to cater separately for one guest. The caterers themselves had limited vegan options that were discussed to be able to cater to her as well. Unfortunately, since Gluten was still part of the vegan option, I’m sure the soon-to-be Bride must’ve felt helpless as to look at the majority or, the minority. It rather becomes unreasonable and invalidating for all the other guests attending just to find out that everything is catered to one individual. The couple is already providing two options for the guests; one being the meat option and, the other being a vegetarian meal.
Many people gave their insights into the situation on hand. Here are a few:
I’m sure they must’ve tried what they possibly could.
A lot depends on the caterers and what they offer, eating beforehand can be a nice suggestion.
Rather than starving throughout the wedding, there are other entrees she can endeavor in and be a part of the wedding.
To not let it bother the process, after all, she isn’t that close to the Bride.
Or one can figure their own needs out themselves.
This person is determined with the decision to not let it bother you and negate such demands. Bring their own food and stop invading privacy.
The guest can be empathetic enough than bothering the hosts.
One of the caterers explained his own experience with having to deal with such incidents.
This just comes to show how different people have different opinions and individual differences with their thoughts and decision-making. Some are willing to incorporate all specifics of the guests even if it’s one guest, while others look at the majority and what seems to fit the couple better in their scenario, budgets, and likings.
I surely found it amusing how everyones’ opinion varies, If I were in Lisas’ position, I would rather just eat from home before attending the wedding, just enjoy the drinks and cocktail hour, and enjoy the environment filled with love and happiness.
