Does anyone know what they are eating and feeding everyone the day of the wedding for breakfast and lunch?

    I will probably order a subway platter for my girls and I to eat at lunch, and I’ll likely have oatmeal for breakfast (keeps me full and won’t hurt my stomach).

    No idea. I'm hoping a restaurant that caters to a variety of diets opens up in the area within the year and a half that I have to figure it out. One of my BMs is vegan and it has been difficult to find options that work for everyone close to my venue. We might just have to order separate meals through our venue's kitchen.

    I had bagels, fruit, and mimosas for breakfast and a sandwich platter with veggies for lunch. We started getting ready at 8am and reception wasn’t until 6pm, so we needed to eat multiple times.

    We're ordering breakfast through our venue. Most likely a fruit tray, breakfast sandwich tray and possibly a pastry/bagel tray. Plus mimosas


    I would suggest sticking to things that are hearty but not overly greasy. That last thing you want to feel on your wedding day is bloated and weighed down.

    Panera lunch for all while we get ready and will have a charcuterie board available during family/friend pics.

    The hotel we’re getting ready at has some packages for food, breakfast we will probably do fruit and pastries and lunch probably a sandwich platter. And mimosas too of course

    Breakfast will be an egg casserole, bagels, fresh fruit, etc.

    Lunch will probably be a meat and cheese platter with rolls, wraps, etc. so everyone can make their own sandwich. I may do hummus and veggies too.

    I'll also have snacks out all day for people to snack on like the leftover fruit from breakfast, pretzels, mixed nuts, m&ms, Twizzlers, etc.

    Our venue has a house we can use for the day for getting ready etc. I am having Panera delivered for lunch along with cold drinks throughout the day for the ladies. The men will be at the hotel which is walking distance from many restaurants so they will probably go there. I like the charcuterie idea for later in the day prior to the ceremony. At least I know people will eat something before the wedding starts.

    We are staying at a manor that is a bed and breakfast, so they will be providing a breakfast buffet. Then, we are ordering Panera lunches to be delivered.

    My stepdaughters and I are going to order from Uber Eats when we get to the hotel since FH and I are splitting with our kids in the morning (I'll have his girls, he'll have my boys) but we will be in the same hotel. Some of my girlfriends may come hang out too. I am not planning anything big. Def a couple mimosas..ahem...for the nerves. Smiley shame

    Thinking we will grab a fruit and cheese tray and some coffee for the morning! (Not a big breakfast person) and something light for lunch like Panera, don't want to feel all bloated in my dress, also I have anxiety and it's hard to eat when your stomach is in knots and heart is beating out of your chest lol

    I had Starbucks on the way to the venue. Our venue included a tray with cheeses, fruits, and tea sandwiches. And one bottle of champagne. T o be honest, it was subpar for the amount I paid for it. A handful of fruit, standard bland cheese squares (grocery store spread), and very very little tea sandwiches for six girls. I am always hangry (ask H) and I like to drink so I knew I would need to eat more than that. We ended up ordering several chicken finger and fries plates from the venues kitchen (they originally wouldn't let us until we told them we were getting delivery).

    No clue lol. I'm sure I'll end up having lunch with a few friends and my mom but I want to have a nice quiet breakfast in our hotel room.

    We're thinking Panera Bread + Mimosas or Bellinis.
