It’ll get people talking

Wedding on Female First

Wedding on Female First

Announcing you’re having a vegan wedding will create an immediate buzz, plus you won’t have to worry about uncomfortable small talk on the actual day… Everyone will be talking about the food! But if you want to be the talk of the town, you’ve got to make sure the food is on point, because there’s nothing worse than not living up to your own hype. Caterers like the Vegan Food Pimp specialise in spectacular plant-based Wedding Breakfasts, and can serve up anything from traditional favourites like roast dinners to exotic Mediterranean-style buffets.

You’ll make a statement

No one wants to be boring on their wedding day. Plus a vegan wedding sets the right tone for the rest of your marriage: kind, fair and loving.

You’ll look cool

A lot of people worry about how they’ll come across on the big day. After all, it’s such a personal thing made into a public event. It’s cool to be kind and more and more people are starting to realise that, so stand proud and enjoy your day, your way.

It eliminates lots of food worries

Serving only plant-based food eliminates so many of the problems in regards to what people do and do not eat. Catering for those with allergies is also much easier and there’s far less risk of nasty food-borne illnesses like salmonella (no one wants guests getting sick at their wedding!) A good caterer will ensure that everyone present will enjoy their meal. As one client of the Vegan Food Pimp recently reported: “Your food is so full of flavour and fun - it kept even the fussiest meat eater happy!”

It’s different

Who wants to have the same wedding as everyone else? Be bold, be different, be vegan!

Your wedding will be right on trend

Veganism is going mainstream like never before. Every week it feels like another restaurant or supermarket chain announces a new menu or product range, and they’re a far cry from the image of limp lettuce and mung beans that was once sold to us as vegan food. Plant-based living is trending, so you if you’re looking for a wedding that’s on trend then vegan is definitely the way to go.

But no one can say you weren’t original

A vegan wedding announcement will probably send Chinese Whispers round the old Aunts… After all, veganism is still a strange concept for many. If you’re the sort of person who shudders at the thought of powder pink bridesmaid dresses, long embarrassing speeches and traditional vows, then a vegan wedding is likely to be right up your street.

Everyone will remember it

Everyone wants to have the most memorable wedding in history right? ;)

You may change hearts and minds

Far more important than looking cool or being trendy, your wedding could introduce veganism to people who have never before encountered it. That’s why the food you serve is absolutely key. The majority of non-vegans still regard plant-based food as boring and bland, but this is your chance to show extended family and friends that it is anything but! In doing so, you might get a few people thinking… Good food is one of the most powerful forms of advocacy, after all. Never underestimate the power of showing your guests that a celebration of this magnitude can still be as good, if not better, than a standard wedding. As the Vegan Food Pimp says, “My job is to help people see that vegan food is everything and more than they ever assumed it could be. One definition of the word pimp is to ‘make something more showy or impressive’ – and could anything be more fitting than that for a wedding?”

You’ll be true to yourself

On your wedding day, it’s only right to be true to who you are. Do you want to look back with regret or start the way you mean to go on?
