Planning the details of your wedding and reception is an exciting time! Soon after you have the date set and the location chosen, it's time to begin detailing the guest list and planning the menu for the best reception dinner that will "WOW" your guests.

The reception is the highlight of the wedding, and we know our brides want to make sure their menus are inclusive so that friends and family members with allergies or specific food preferences are not overlooked.

Wedding menus can be challenging, but we're here to tell you that there is a way to plan your wedding menu to be friendly for gluten-free, vegetarians, vegans, and many more, without any unnecessary stress. 

Every good wedding planner can prepare an inclusive menu with ease. It's not hard to find alternatives that can be quickly and easily substituted in the menu — especially when your guests let you know their meal preference with their RSVP cards a month or more in advance. 

Altering a menu to be vegan and vegetarian-friendly doesn't have to be as complicated as having an exclusive menu for each type, it can be as simple as adding a tofu option or a leafy salad or pasta with vegetables.

Our award-winning chefs at the Grand Velas Resorts in Mexico have the creativity and flexibility to prepare the best inclusive menus for weddings. Whether vegetarian, gluten-free, vegan, pescatarian, keto, or something unique, each one has a special place in the gourmet creations of our famous kitchens. As a bonus, we only use the freshest ingredients - many grown in our own gardens.
