there would be trickle down effect and in time it is hoped vegetarianism
will become mainstream. Here is what an article states:

âChelsea Clintonâs super-secret upstate New York wedding to Marc Mezvinsky
this Saturday will feature a vegan menu and a gluten-free cake. The couple
will throw at least one bone to meat eaters, though, by serving up some
organic grass-fed beef.

they account for just a small sliver of the pie, or cake, as it were â such
requests are on the rise, a trend that is likely to continue in the wake of
the former first daughterâs wedding.

âThis will empower people to make these requests,â says Grace Clerihew, a
principal at Table Tales, a New York City catering firm. âPrior to this,
they might have thought it was not mainstream enough to even talk about, but
now that they see it being done by such a public persona it becomes

Chelsea likely chose her menu based on both personal preferences and health
needs â she is said to have been vegan since her teen years and to have a
gluten allergy â but her wedding menu should have a trickle-down effect
nonetheless, says Clerihew.â
