Honestly I loathe the "push values" argument. Not everyone is a certain religion. If you were a strict roman catholic having the wedding placed in church, would you move your wedding because you had friends and/or family who were atheists? Same for the opposite. They either support you or don't.
I need some help!
I have announced to a couple of people (mainly parents) that I would like a vegetarian wedding (I would prefer vegan but that isn't going to happen). We are making to food (buffet style) because we can't afford catering, however we have been getting some push back because of it.
Your forcing your views on your guests
Not every one likes veggies
People will be disappointed not having meat there
(These are to list a couple)
Our responses to date:
Forcing us to serve meat at our wedding is pushing your views on us
- I told my sister she might have to figure out something for her boyfriend because he is so picky... literally he would eat meat, fries, pizza, garlic fingers, and pb&j sandwhiches.... He literally eats nothing in terms of fruits and veggies....
- There are 3 meals a days, 7 days a week, I am sure people can go without meat for one meal (we are allowing fish because of pushback).
I don't know what to do about the push back. I am thinking about making a small speech on why we went this route because I am transitioning vegan and my fiancee recently decided to go vegetarian or pescatarian (not sure which right now).... so we both don't eat meat now.... I am doing it for health, the animals and the environment and my fiancee started switching after I should him a video on the effects of animal agriculture on the environment. But I am extremely lost in what to do. Any suggestion would be helpful!!
