Hello all,

I'm getting married next May and I'm recently diagnosed with celiac. I've had sensitivities my entire life but my reactions have gotten much worse, hence the diagnosis. I'm EXTREMELY sensitive to the slightest amount of gluten and I have no idea where to go. My fiance and I want to run off somewhere fun, get married and have a great honeymoon. It will just be the two of us so that makes things a little easier, but I'm still stumped on where to go.

Here's what we we're looking for:

-Somewhere fun, cool, interesting where we can be legally married (some countries won't work)

-We do not want to scout out a new gluten-free restaurant for each meal (not relaxing at all)

-We don't want to have to pack food in a lunch sack "to go" like I have to do at home

-Basically, I want to feel like a regular person and eat good food and not have to worry about it 3 x's a day

I know there has to be gluten-free places out there that I don't know about so that's why I'm asking. Please help!!!!

Thank you!

Shelly & Dave

I think you can get married at Disney. The ultimate Cinderella dream!

There was a thread a few weeks ago about going to far destinations like Thailand. Some depends on how much you want to spend and how many people you want to follow you.

It's on this travel thread - gluten-free destination wedding

Thanks guys,

I think we're going to look at a cruise. I've looked through some other posts on the forums and that's what I feel most comfortable with. I'm anxious to hear about the Vegas trip though. I LOVE Vegas and would love to hear how to enjoy it gluten free. Thanks again!

Hey -- CONGRATULATIONS -- I have been to vegas several times. I also travel to various places to visit family, etc.

Prior to arriving at the hotel (and sometimes prior to booking) I CALL someone in guest services and speak to him/her directly about my food needs and ask if the hotel can accomodate. If so, book and you can eat in their hotel restuarants or get room service. Farimont has ALWAYS created my OWN menu. It is emailed to me in advance...It is left in my room AND it is provided to me when I attend at the restaurant. They have been great.

Now I know you said that you didn't want to have to pack food...but I have stayed at several Fairmont hotels and they have always been very willing to pack me (in a thermal case they provide) a delicious gluten-free meal to go. And the chef usually comes out to meet me and present me with the picnic lunch. I also have severe allergies, so it is great that they are so gracious and accomodating.

So when I travel and want to go on a full day outing (ex - in vegas, a heli ride to the grand canyon...which lasted 5 hours in total) I can go and know I"ll be good for food even though the refreshments provided by the heli service are not safe (and would I really want to risk it...their key is the heli ride, not accomodating celiacs).

So I recommend that you can stay at any 4 or 5 star hotel/resort...just make sure you speak with guest services PRIOR to booking to determine how accomodating they will be.

In vegas, I stayed at the Trump Hotel because it had the best value with a full kitchen. My strategy -- cook a bunch of chicken breasts (maybe 4) the day I arrive and buy salad fixings. Then, in a pinch, I throw the salad with chicken in a thermal bag (I have a very small one that fits in my purse) and I'm good.

I was even allowed to eat my own food in several restaurants in vegas. In Vegas, there is a whole foods for convenient gluten-free grocery shopping. And Trump accomodated my allergies and gluten-free needs whenever I ordered.

Wyn can accomodate also.

PF Changs has a gluten-free menu. So does outback steakhouse. Both are located on the strip.

Thanks guys,
