One of the very first questions that I ask couples regarding catering and food is, "are there any dietary restrictions we should be aware of?" These restrictions can play a big part in the meal you choose to serve your guests. If you live with dietary restrictions due to allergies, medical conditions, or personal dietary choices, your wedding day is NOT the day to "forget about it". Photo Courtesty of Distinct Occasions
First, what is the restriction? Simple things like vegetarianism or low salt diets are easy to accommodate with any typical wedding menu. Medical conditions like celiac disease, diabetes, and serious allergies to shellfish and peanuts for example, require a little more management to ensure guest safety. The first step is to be open and honest about these restrictions with your planner and caterer to ensure they can make adjustments as necessary.
