I'm ordering trays from Sam's club. A meat and cheese tray and a fruit tray. Something fairly light but that we can munch on. I know some people do Panera/bagels/donuts....but I don't eat carbs and I can't imagine how I'd blow up if i did on that morning. Lol.
I’m planning on feeding them while we get ready/before pics and the ceremony. I know that if I don’t eat I get hangry and light-headed so I think it’s important! Especially if you’re planning on having a few mimosas. Nothing too heavy, probably a sub platter and chips or pretzels.
I haven't had my wedding yet but I plan on having some fruit, veggies, crackers, and dips for my bridal party. The last wedding I was in the didn't have any for us and we got so hangry.
We have a bridal suite brunch that we added on with our package. It comes with pinwheel sandwiches, some baked goods, fruit, cheese and crackers, trail mix, salad, and some mimosas. We have 6 hours between arrival and the start of the wedding, so we needed some food to munch on for sure!
Yes, please serve them! Haha I've been a bridesmaid twice. One fed us, the other didn't. I literally had NO fun at the one that didn't feed us, and didn't enjoy being her bridesmaid because I was starving & had a huge migraine. I'm serving pastries & bagels with cream cheese or peanut butter and a fruit tray for breakfast, then protein bars, a veggie tray and each girl is getting their own Panera box for lunch.
Oh my gosh, I didn't think of this! I'll have to add this to my checklist. My wedding won't start until 3 so I'm thinking about maybe taking them all out for a nice brunch. Definitely want something high in protein to keep energy up but still kind of light while avoiding any foods that can cause bloating or upset stomachs.
I don't think we will be, since we are only spending a couple hours getting ready. But since it is first thing in the morning, maybe we'll pick up bagels or something... But if you're planning to be there for many hours, I think you definitely should provide a meal.
I'm serving my bridesmaids, flower girl, and the moms breakfast from Panera: bagels, pastries, parfaits, fresh fruit, coffee, tea, orange juice, water, and mimosas! Costing about $150 for 10 people.
We're getting lunch for the bridesmaids and groomsmen from Costco: croissant sandwiches, wraps, veggies and dip, and water! Costing about $90 for 16 people.
We started getting ready super early so I fed my girls breakfast and lunch. For breakfast I had muffins and a fruit tray from Costco with juice. For lunch I ordered Whole Foods sandwich platters with chips and a vegetable tray. I also had waters, juices, champagne, and beer. One of my biggest pet peeves being in weddings is when the bride only feeds the wedding party minimal snacks instead of a meal and I’m starving until dinner. I know the bride worries about bloating and all that but feed your girls!

We are doing Chickfila catering trays for the girls and I am not sure about for the guys (thankfully my FMIL offered to take care of their food for that day). My FMIL did mention like subs and chips and stuff from jimmy johns or whichever sandwich place your guys prefer. It does not have to be fancy or expensive!

I'm having either Panera or Chick FIl A delivered to the hotel for everyone getting ready
We rented our venue for 2 nights, it has 10 rooms so our entire wedding party are staying there. The venue includes breakfast and a picnic basket lunch for everyone staying there.
If you're requiring them to be there form early on, you should definitely prepare to have at least one meal and some snacks. Maybe some breakfast platters and then veggies & chips for later in the day?
