Your big wedding day is drawing near! As you and your partner plan for your big day, you likely want to stay true to your plant-based philosophy and lifestyle. The wonderful news is that it is incredibly easy to do these days, so you can have your dream wedding, knowing that you are holding true to your vegan principles and keeping your treasured guests happy.
Take a look at three key vegan planning concerns that have simple solutions to put your mind at ease:
1. Wedding Wear
A great deal of wedding attire often incorporates silk into dresses, veils and men’s ties. Also, shoes are often made of animal products, such as leather. While animal-based materials are common, there are plenty of animal-free clothing and shoes. Check out these wedding dresses, shared by Peaceful Dumpling, to see the stunning cruelty-free options.
2. The Wedding Menu
The usual options of “chicken or fish” are not options for you and your beloved. The chances are good that your friends and family already know your commitment to maintaining a mindful vegan lifestyle, but just in case, let everyone know that they are in for a bounty of vegan delights. Look into catering services at a Los Angeles vegan restaurant, like our own. Our standard offering of two appetizers, a salad, curry and a noodle entree. On top of that, you are welcome to add entrees like burgers, lavash wraps, tortillas, soy fish, lentil loaf, soy beef and much more, for an additional fee. Your friends and family won’t miss chicken and fish with the right vegan catering service.
3. The Wedding Cake
As you likely already know, sweets don’t need eggs and dairy to taste delicious. Search your area for the top vegan bakeries that use ingredients like non-dairy milk, tapioca or arrowroot flour and unrefined coconut oil as high-quality alternatives to traditional ingredients. Brides recommends some of the best vegan bakeries in Los Angeles to give you a boost.
