This past weekend my niece got married to a wonderful guy. I am¬†happy for her and it was great to have shared in her special day. I was also so thankful for the attention to detail when it came to handling food allergies and the dinner. My niece has been a nanny for years and is very well versed in the subject of food allergies, especially because many of the children she has babysat for over the years have severe food allergies. It was her hope that none of the children who attended the wedding felt excluded, and that they were served in the same way as everyone else.
Prior to dinner being served the catering manager went to every single table to ask about food allergies and intolerances. He was familiar with all the ingredients of the food being served and could quickly tell if there would be a problem.¬†For instance, we were told right away that the bread would be unsuitable because they couldn’t verify all the ingredients in the bread. Everything went smoothy, and for that I was truly grateful. Of course, I still watched John like a hawk for the first few bites.
Since¬†the bride couldn’t guarantee the cake would be allergen friendly I¬†was asked to make¬†an assortment of cookies and bars for the¬†“sweets” table.¬†Several other children¬†at the wedding had various allergies so it was great to see ALL the children enjoy¬†the¬†sweet treats.¬†It was definitely “an affair to remember”…
Hope you¬†all enjoyed the long weekend!
