Some of us will have makeup on I guess shouldn’t be a problem to reapply lipstick. Something all of us can snack on. I guess that would include wedding party (8 of us) plus my mom, & sister.
Pizza would be a good idea but We are having pizza as a “late night snack” around 8pm. So maybe some subway sandwiches?

    I dont think we will have any time after the ceremony so definitely going to have to work in some time before the ceremony.

    Ceremony “starts at 2” which is more like 2:10 because my family is always late. 30min ceremony. Pictures will start about 15min later at the church. Then drive to city hall to take pics alone. Drive to reception for grand entrance at 4pm (cocktail hour starts at 3). I will def try to leave a granola bar in the car lol hopefully it doesn’t get lost depending on which car we end up taking to go take city hall pics.

    Hey love! I’m getting married next July Ans we’re going to do little charcuterie boxes! It’s not messy and easy, and a healthier option before walking down the isle!

    We also had Panera delivered! Big totes of coffee, OJ (straight or for mimosas), bagels and cream cheese, yogurt parfaits, big fruit bowl and a few egg soufflés. My girls arrived at 10 and cocktail hour started at 5:30.


    I was surprised that the yogurt and fruit hardly got touched—the egg soufflés were gone and the bagels were a big hit too.

    I would get light food (not fast food, not pizza) so that you don't feel bloated later in the day. For lunch we had chicken salad and tofu salad with pitas and it was perfect for holding me over but not feeling heavy.

    We're planning on getting chick-fil-a for everyone for breakfast! I also plan on getting a small fruit and veggie tray and coffee, mimosas, and water.

    We're basically just doing a light breakfast for everyone when we get to the venue to get ready, then probably light snacks between then and the ceremony to hold us over. Chips, crackers, fruit and veggie trays, maybe some trail mix. The bridal suite at our venue has a mini fridge, so I might get a salad kit for me and see if my ladies want one!

    I'd suggest staying away from pizza or fast food that could upset your stomach or make you feel really bloated.

    A platter of cut up fruit and then someone will go to Panera and/or Starbucks for bagels, muffins, all the coffee. We gave both less than a mile from the venue.

    I'm planning on an assortment of breakfast sandwiches, donuts, baked goods, along with fruit and mimosas for the girls while getting ready. Then at the venue I'm going to have a hoagie platter and a philly pretzel platter and salad for the wedding party for a late lunch/pre ceremony meal.

    Our wedding is at 3:30 and we are trying to figure out what to eat also. We are 9 days away now. I want to get something that will be easy for me to eat because I know I'll have high anxiety that day and I more than likely won't eat. It's difficult to eat when I have anxiety. I was thinking of getting a sub tray from Wegmans.
