Hosting a wedding is a huge undertaking in its own right; a considerable amount of preparation goes into ensuring the guests attending are well-taken care of, well-entertained, and well-fed, let alone the people actually exchanging the vows. Add dietary restrictions into the mix, and wedding planning can become an overwhelming enterprise.

Luckily, for those who are passionate about following a plant-based diet (and therefore catering a 100 percent vegan wedding), there are options and catering services out there ready and eager to help you make your dreams come true. Vogue did just name vegan weddings a trend for 2017, after all — these days throwing your perfect plant-based celebration is easier than ever! Here are some companies and caterers you can rely on to help make your dreams into a delicious, plant-based celebratory reality.
