Food allergies are easily overlooked when planning a wedding menu. The most common are nuts, seafood, lactose and of course, gluten. That’s why, whether you and your fiancé have gluten intolerance or not, it’s nice to have some gluten-free food options for guests who do—just in case.
Finding the perfect specialised wedding menu (and caterer!) could be tricky but we have some ideas below that could help you plan a flavorful, thoughtful wedding menu.

Fresh, fresh, fresh seafood
