Planning the menu for your wedding can be one of the most intimidating tasks out of all your preparations. Your guests’ dietary restrictions are legitimate. Their preferences are often even more apparent. Do your best to be considerate of the culinary desires and needs of all those in attendance. Come to terms with the fact that depending on the number of guests, you will not be able to cater to everyone’s favorites. The most important opinion is that of you and your groom. Give your guests room on the RSVPs and prompt them to describe any dietary restrictions of which you should be aware. Once you know which types of dietary restrictions you must account for, look below for some ideas of how to appeal to each of your guests.
