All the food at our rehearsal dinner and reception will all be gluten free! And dairy free, with the exception of some possible goat and/or sheep milk cheese in one dish. As a person with so many food sensitivities and allergies I not only want to show how easy and tasty it is, but I know that there will be other folks there that have some of the same dietary needs. So we might as well make it all more allergy friendly. We could probably take out soy and nuts as well, but I don't know of anyone coming to the wedding that have allergies to those two.
For some reason, I think this comes across as a bit shocking to some folks, but having a gluten and dairy free meal is actually remarkably easy. It's mostly all about the quality and purity of the ingredients you use and just substituting when necessary.
We have selected a caterer and we do have a menu, but I don't think it's going to be the final version of our menu. So more on that later once things get firmed up!
