I know it can be done... having a vegetarian meal as a die hard meat eater. my fiancee is ridiculously "meat n potatoes" and the vegetarian places I've taken him to have ended up on his favorites list.... but we're on a TIGHT budget and the really flavorful fancy stuff just ain't gonna happen. In fact were bordering on doing hor d'oeuvres only to try and save. We found a place that offers a decent selection of vegetarian plated options and they're willing to work with us if we have suggestions. I'm trying to get input bc he's ok with going vegetarian (and financially it works great to stay in budget) but I'm getting push back from family. Has anyone successfully worked a vegetarian wedding n shut up the critics? Or are we being "unreasonable?"
Side note: This is our second wedding (for each of us) and it's a celebration for US this time around. (Especially since we're financing the whole thing and only asking for company, NO gifts.) So we feel like all bets are off here. As in dont bother us with obsessive etiquette, we've done the classy thing with our 1st weddings.
