Your wedding day is going to be one of the most special and exciting days in your life. One of the things that makes it so special is the friends and family that will be there to attend it with you. You want to make sure that each guest has a wonderful time. Now that you’ve selected the Crystal Ballroom in Altamonte Springs as your wedding venue, it’s time to turn your thoughts to other things, including the menu. Today, it seems that everyone has special dietary needs. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing a menu.

Vegans and Vegetarians

Among your guests, there could be a couple of vegans or vegetarians. You want to make sure that your menu includes at least one vegetarian entree to accommodate guests that don’t eat meat. Offering an appetizer during the cocktail hour that lacks meat or animal fats should be a simple matter. In fact, you might find your guests that aren’t vegans or vegetarians enjoying these dishes and offerings.

Nut Allergies

Some allergies can be very frightening and nut allergies are one of the biggest. When sending out the invitations, if you include a menu option to return with the RSVP, you might consider adding a space to include any serious allergies. You can discuss any of the more serious allergies with the caterer to ensure the health and safety of your guest.

Gluten Free

As one of the newest allergies to be identified, it seems that everyone is looking for a gluten-free option these days. From the flour in bread to the crust on a pizza, everyone wants an option to avoid gluten. While planning your menu, you might want to consider adding a gluten-free meal to the menu for those with low tolerance or allergies.

At the Crystal Ballroom, we offer a liberal open-door policy to accommodate your catering choices. Call us today to set up an appointment.
