Fun Fun… Eating at Weddings


Eating gluten-free at weddings, showers, dinners and parties can be wonderful, or a challenge!

I recently attended two weddings. At the luncheon of one, the plates were served and I looked at the delicious lasagna and french bread on my plate. Since I can eat neither, family members quickly whisked away my plate and gave me that knowing look. I found salad in a bowl on the table, and helped myself to a generous serving. Noticing there were two dressings, I decided that neither were likely to be gluten-free. So, I ate my salad, which I jokingly call “weed salad” and drank ice water.

At another wedding, we were served buffet style. I was pleasantly surprised to find I could eat everything! They served a large vegetable tray, chips ‘n salsa, fruit scewers and meat & vegetable scewers. It tasted so good that I went back for more during the evening.

I am reminded of this advice: Always take a gluten-free goody in your purse!

I think the gluten-free refreshments sound even better than the other refreshments.

First, these wedding photos are beautiful! What an exotic location, and unique bridal gown! I’ve experienced similar experiences – having nothing to eat, and only drinking the water. LOL! But it’s so nice when there are things I can eat! Again, let me plug this place in the Seattle area, in case any of your fans live or visit there!
