If you’ve never planned a plant-based wedding before, you’re probably wondering:
“What do you serve at a vegan wedding?”
We get it, it’s intimidating enough having to choose a menu that is perfect for your big day, let alone one that your (probably non-vegan) guests will enjoy too. But don’t worry, because we’ve got a humongous list of ideas, from canapés to desserts.
Scroll down for a delicious dose of inspiration and prepare to start drooling!
Of course, if you choose a 100% vegan caterer (like the ones on VEGCRAVER), they’ll probably have tried and tested ideas of their own! Simply search for a caterer near you and click on the Request a Quote button on their VEGCRAVER profiles to start a conversation to discuss your vegan wedding menu ideas.
We like to refer to canapés as little bites of pure bliss. They’re a great opportunity to inject your personality and creativity into your vegan wedding menu and they give your guests a taste of what’s to come!
These miniature morsels can be offered out during those hunger-panging moments between wedding formalities and speeches, or served alongside champagne at the drinks reception to keep cravings at bay.
Stun your wedding guests with these flavorful plant-based appetizers:
Aesthetically pleasing and wonderfully fresh, spring rolls can be placed around the wedding venue along with numerous dips, such as this peanut sauce.
Are you sensing a peanut theme here? The great thing about these meaty skewers is that you can serve them drizzled in any kind of sauce, such as BBQ or teriyaki, which is great if you’ve got a wedding guest with allergies.
Smoked salmon is a classic wedding canapé so why not simply veganize it by using carrot slivers instead of fish? Believe us when we say that this smoked carrot lox still packs a punch and will have your guests questioning why they don’t try to incorporate more vegetables into their diets.
The perfect accompaniment at a drinks reception, these soysage roll appetizers are packed full of umami flavor.
Here are some more plant-based canapé ideas to send to your wedding caterer:
Whilst the canapés will give your guests a teeny weeny taste of what’s to come, your starters are going to be what forms their first impressions of your vegan wedding menu.
It’s time to go big or go home with these incredible starters:
Impressive yet effortless, a great vegan menu option for those of you with a tight wedding catering budget, particularly since you don’t need many additional ingredients. The wonderfully earthy and subtly sweet beetroot speaks for itself in this vegan beetroot carpaccio.
This delightfully creamy avocado soup is perfect for summertime weddings! It’s like guacamole but refreshingly light, thanks to the cucumber and dill.
If any of you have watched Fantastic Fungi on Netflix, then you’ll know how mushrooms could be the key to saving the world! They’re also pretty awesome at saving your wedding guests from hunger, whilst delivering on flavor too. Here’s a delicious creamy mushroom bisque to inspire you.
We can’t tell you how much we want to go to a vegan wedding that serves these delicious scallops on their menu…we’re actually salivating thinking about them!

Just when your guests think plant-based food can’t get any better, it’s time to wheel out the desserts! Here is a selection of some of the finest sweet treats to serve on your big day:
We’re not talking VioLife here. Instead, why not create some jaw-dropping vegan cheese platters with fresh and dried fruit, chutneys, and fancy crackers? Just check out some of Beba Baxter’s fermented nut cheeses for inspiration (or hire her as your wedding caterer)!
Mmm…we didn’t think pineapple could get any tastier! Ask your caterer if they’ve got a sous vide machine to make this sweet and sticky, caramel-infused pineapple dessert.
We had you at chocolate, right? Believe it or not, this rich chocolate mousse dessert is 100% plant-based and will likely be the most outstanding course on your wedding menu.
