Who doesn’t love a wedding? The free-flowing bubbly, the atmosphere and the food all make for a great day. However, if you’ve been a vegan guest in the past you may know that the latter can sometimes be a little tricky. But it seems this could no longer be the case.
Last year saw more and more people choosing plant based options for the menu on their big day, top fashion magazine Vogue even named their top wedding trend of 2017 as vegan food.
The proof for this is in the pudding says cake shop owner Amy Alward, who observed to the Portland Press Herald, ‘90 percent of our brides asked for a vegan and gluten-free option in 2017.’ Alward owns Love Kupcakes Bakery in Maine and her prediction is that the demands in 2018 will be much the same as last year.
Caite Fairbanks-Cliffe, who runs Destination Maine Weddings, has agreed with Alward. Fairbanks-Cliffe said, ‘last year I really saw the change, at almost every bigger wedding I did last year, we had vegan options. In a couple of cases, either the bride or groom was vegan. Or a couple of their very good friends were vegan.’
After all, a wedding is all about love and compassion, so why not celebrate it with some cruelty free vol-au-vents?
