Nope, unfortunately, that’s not a spelling mistake. As you might know, a year ago Zorianna fell quite ill and after numerous doctors and specialists, and hospital appointments, was finally diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder that renders her HIGHLY sensitive to certain foods. For the most part, this isn’t a big deal. It effects our life in small ways. For example, if Marco eats a tomato or has earl grey tea (which contains bergamot–citrus–oil), then he can’t kiss Zorianna until he has washed his face and brushed his teeth. It seems a little dangerous to be kissing 150 people who’ve just eaten several of the things that she is highly allergic to. So, we ask that after dinner you please HUG, and not kiss the bride. We know it is highly unusual, especially in loving European families like ours, but please do understand that having an allergic reaction on such a fun day would be upsetting. Many many many thanks for your understanding on this.
Note: for those of you with tree nut and peanut allergies–not to worry, none of the food or desserts will contain nuts!
