We were lucky. The only wedding chris was in was a family memeber that took him into complete concern. She had nothing he couldn't have and took excellent care of him.
As far as bringing my own food for him that is what I have always done. No need to cause a scene you just do it and noone notices.
The cake I would certainly bring her something of equal sweetness. Chris would not have wanted to miss out on dessert as long as it was safe and from home. This also teaches your child not to eat anyone elses food.
I don't think I would miss the wedding but keep a very watchful eye on her.
Is there any reason you can not bring handy wipes with you? That would help you out. I would just make sure to wash her hands and face several times and especially make people aware of her allergy. You have the right.
I think she will be ok because you are so aware that there will be nuts in the building so your on top of things now!
I would still be angry but I think you'll be ok. Best of luck to you and your DD. Claire

Claire,
Great idea for the handy wipes! I didn't think of that. I will definitely add them to my list of things to bring. Thanks!

Last month we took the kids to a fancy wedding reception. There were place settings for their food that we brought from home, and we brought their own cake desserts.
The entree's had no nuts but cookies were served after the cake that were full of nuts. I just watched the kids closely to make sure they did not get near the cookies or anyone with a nut one.
Good luck with the entree situation. My only comment would be that the kids mainly played with other kids and did not interact too much with the adults. I can't see many kids eating pistacchio.
My kids had a great time dancing and playing and food was not even a main focus at our reception. I hope your daughter enjoys the occassion.

Since we have to go out to have "our" dinner at this wedding, I was wondering if any one here lives in New Jersey, near Princeton University and can recommend a good, safe restaurant. We are very close to Route 1. We were wondering if there was a Pizza Hut or an Olive Garden, or anything similar and reasonably priced.
Thank you.
