My brother in law got married this past weekend and DH and I stood for them. Lots of fun but I was not excited about our food situation. There are so few scenarios when I can't be in complete control of our food, but this was one of them and it really hits you how differently you eat from everyone else!
The menu for the wedding was:
Garden Salad- Vegan friendly without dressing Chicken with cheese -Not Beef tenderloin - Not Creamy pasta salad with cheese and bacon -Not Parmesan mashed potatoes- Not Buttered Carrots -Not
We couldn't even eat the veggies b.c they were cooked in butter! lol. I totally don't blame the people who chose this menu (my sister in law), because those are the foods they eat and we're the ones who eat differently, but oye...being involved in a wedding all day long, and then only eating a salad just about killed us!
So what is one situation in which you had to choose between giving in and compromising your beliefs, and starving for an entire day? What did you choose?
*BTW, I planned ahead enough to pack some Cliff Bars and sunflower seeds so we had something to munch on
most weddings i go to had a vegan or veg option as entree and the bride and groom ordered me a veg meal. however, at my one friend's wedding the meal was frozen! my aunt's wedding, however, the meal was awesome. it was sauteed portabello mushrooms.

I'm also lacto-ovo so I can usually find something to eat. Unfortunately, when I was in basic training (I'm in the Army Reserve), I had to compromise a bit because going 10 weeks with nothing to eat and working out every day, I was going to kill myself. I had to force myself to eat fish every once in a while because there was nothing else to eat and my body needed the protein. Often, I would trade with my buddies, offering them my portion of meat in exchange for their milk and veggies. Since then, I've never been in a situation where there were no options for me and I usually carry around snacks.
