How can we create a menu that will make all of our guests happy? QA When choosing the entrée options for your reception, consider possible dietary restrictions. Although you can’t account for every guest’s allergy and menu preferences, you can try to ensure everyone will enjoy something. Include a vegetarian option on your response cards, or ask your caterer if they can create a few special dishes. For a buffet, include allergenfree options, like dishes with no nuts, or allow your guests to garnish their own plates. For instance, if you’re having a sundae bar, offer plenty of gluten-free toppings like M&Ms and Haribo gummies. DRESS DISTRESS Q One of my bridesmaids won’t order her dress and I’m afraid she won’t get it in time for my wedding. What should I do? A Find…
