My vegan wedding: what’s on the menu?

In recent years, the vegan trend has been gaining ground. Indeed, according to a study by the private firm Xerfi in 2018, 5% of the world’s population will be vegetarian or vegan. In France, it is estimated that they represent 3% of the French population, or 1.3 million people.

As a reminder, veganism consists of rejecting all products of animal origin, whether in food, clothing or beauty products.

And as this diet is becoming more and more fashionable, it also goes through our plates at weddings! Because the “traditional” ceremonial meal is absolutely not obligatory and because a successful vegan wedding is possible! We explain how 🙂

As a starter, 4 good reasons to take the plunge:

 

1 – First of all, it’s YOUR day!

And that should be the only valid reason. Don’t give in to social pressure, respect your convictions to the end and keep concessions to a minimum in order to keep the best possible memories of your wedding.

2 – This is original.

And yes, we are not invited to a vegan wedding every day… Legumes, oilseeds, seeds, fruits, condiments, seaweed and many others… stop the preconceived ideas! Despite its constraints, vegan cuisine can be varied and tasty. This is an opportunity to introduce your omnivorous guests to new flavours in a responsible consumption approach.

3 – It’s eco-friendly.

The food is organic and locally produced in a responsible consumption approach. Most caterers who offer vegan wedding menus are also environmentally friendly and try to produce as little waste as possible.

4 – Compared to a flexitarian diet (or semi-vegetarianism, it is a dietary practice whose daily basis is vegetarian, but which allows an exceptional consumption of better quality meat), a vegan marriage is unquestionably cheaper!

 

For the dish, 4 menu ideas by vegan specialist caterers:

 

1 – Fraish Gourmet

It is the creation of a menu adapted to your desires, adapted to the theme of your wedding but also to your budget. A vegan wedding with Italian inspiration? Lebanese inspirations? Indian ? Or a traditional French vegetarian wedding? A fusion menu between different cultures?  And finally, technology and the modern world oblige: a guarantee so instagramable thanks to a refined presentation. Every detail counts!
