We have 140 guest coming, and my FI's family is a big meat eating family, which means changing our whole menu for just two people is not a good option. And we're having a buffet, so I can't even do it by the plate. I need some ideas!

You definitely need a "meal" option for your vegetarian friends-- and not just an unhealthy side dish. If you can order half a tray/order of a vegetarian side dish, you may find that some of your other guests also opt for that option. Don't leave your friends with nothing but a couple side dishes though. You don't want them to go hungry!

I actually had a similar problem. Only one of my bridesmaids is a vegetarian. I actually just talked to her and asked what she would like to eat. We decided to have a to-go meal for her from a nearby restaurant so she can eat an entire meal too. We're also doing a buffet, but the caterer said she doesn't mind us buying a single dish from some place else because they don't do meals by the plate.

We always accommodate special or restricted diets, weather preference or medical necessity is the accommodation requester, we are always willing to provide a plate that is separate from the buffet served. Many times it is simply changing the sauce, or leaving it out entirely. I would advise speaking with your caterer about the options they have for you.
