Vegan Wedding Menu Ideas

Staying Vegan on the Big Day: Wedding Menu Options

Even though wedding meals typically include bacon-wrapped scallops, filet mignon, and wedding cake smothered in buttercream frosting, you can still enjoy a delicious vegan menu if you, your partner, or your guests follow this animal-free diet. A little creative planning is all it takes, and since many venues, caterers, and bakers are being asked more about vegan options, chances are your venders will be able to accommodate your needs. When planning your own wedding, here are some tasty ideas for your vegan meal.

Cold Hors d'Oeuvres

  • Crispy sweet-potato pancakes topped with apple cinnamon chutney
  • Mini shot glasses of roasted red pepper hummus with carrot and celery sticks
  • Dates filled with soy cheese and wrapped in crispy portobello strips

Warm Hors d'Oeuvres

  • Tomato oregano risotto cakes topped with dairy-free pesto
  • Roasted veggie skewers with cardamom ginger dressing for dipping
  • Falafel balls with tzatziki sauce


  • Baby spinach with golden beets, candied walnuts, and raspberry vinaigrette
  • Mixed greens with ripe pears, edamame, sunflower seeds, and an avocado ginger dressing
  • Cucumber, tomato, and basil salad with cubes of baked tofu and balsamic vinaigrette
