Get some information online, take a look around several restaurants for taste tests or ask someone who has already been through this type of experience.

A little bit of creativity will be enough to surprise all your guests.

Wine, beer and wedding cake: lots of “green” options

At first, your guests will not be so happy in front of your veg wedding cake, but later they will think again about its amazing taste.
