Thank you much for your advice, personally i just dont know what to do for food since a good portion of what can be served by the caterers i cant even be around cause the smell is so repulsive, specifically meats, onions, garlic, and chocolate
I am staring off with smell training, and i know cold meats are doable for me. I might try something up the nose but i can't do anything mint because I'm allergic. thank you for your advice, its very helpful still.
I'm sorry you have to deal with this. I would recommend speaking to your florist and caterer to see if you can do multiple tastings and trials to find items that won't make you ill. With so many different flowers and cuisines, I'm hopeful you can find something. Maybe the caterer can make a special meal just for you (like they would for anyone with allergies).
AS of the last few days I have been getting better at dealing with most common smells that have messed with me, and I don't want to get my hopes too high yet but it seems like it is finally getting better after 6 months. I will keep you all updated, and thank you all for giving me the confidence to talk to my vendors about this.
I can't imagine you are the only person going through this right now. With the loss of smell/taste being a HUGE symptom of COVID, this has to be common now, whether or not yours is related to the current pandemic.
Even though you feel you are getting better at dealing with smells, still talk to your vendors and do multiple trials. The last thing you need is to have any set backs on your wedding day.
