What are you planning to eat for breakfast and lunch on your wedding day?? You won't believe how many people totally forget to feed themselves (and their wedding party) on the wedding day!

Are you planning on some quick and easy take-out? Having your wedding party place sandwich orders someone can pick up? Or are you planning your wedding day meals around foods that are easy on your stomach, don't make you bloat, or to fuel up for a full night of dancing?

    The salon where we are getting ready is providing sandwiches and drinks for lunch. I am providing breakfast, I am not positive what I will have delivered yet!

    I was just thinking if this. I figured we can all order breakfast or lunch at the hotel and have the place deliver it

    I’m having my MOH pick up Panera for breakfast since all of the girls need to be a the venue for hair and makeup. Then lunch I’m doing to do a few sandwich trays , veggies , fruit... dinner is not until around 6 pm so I need to make sure I feed them well and they are feeling faint or anything ... plus show my appreciation

    I’ll be interested to see other responses because I’m still unsure of what to do. Our ceremony is at one so we need to start getting ready at 8am at a House my mom rented close to the church. I’m giving the girls the menu of the caterer we will use for breakfast and having them pick what they want. It’ll be delivered around 830. We’ll also do some trays of light snacks. We have to be at the church at 12 so I’m still not sure what to do about lunch. I’m hoping the snacks can hold us over till the end of the ceremony. We then have a pretty large gap untill the reception so we’ll need to eat again. We have a party bus to take us to a few photo locations so I’m trying to think of convenient foods to have on the bus.

    We'll have breakfast (Greek pastries, coffee, fresh fruit juices, etc.) served in the rooms. I don't want to eat too much before the wedding, as I'll end up looking bloated in photos!

    Most of my family and my bridal party will be staying at the resort the night before, so we get complimentary breakfast at the resort the morning of. I will also probably bring snacks and drinks for throughout the getting ready process as well. There’s also a restaurant on site so we can order room service if we need to. Hanger isn’t cute lol my girls will be fed.

    I plan on staying at an air Bnb the night before and having our hair and makeup done there. So I’m thinking we will cook for breakfast. And then maybe have my DOC pick up a sandwhich tray and a fruit tray or something for us to have in bridal suite while getting ready for a lite lunch.

    We had breakfast at the Inn where the wedding was held. Our ceremony wasn’t until 4pm. As soon as breakfast was over, the room was reset for us to decorate for the reception. While we (mom’s, bridesmaids, aunts, etc) decorated and got ready, the guys left to go golfing. Everyone was back by lunchtime and we had sandwich trays that we had ordered from Ingles (the closest grocery store). The guys had clubs and the girls had turkey wraps. Since we knew we would be busy all day getting ready, we didn’t want anything too heavy and wanted to save room for the delicious food that would be served at the reception.

    I never even thought about this, but now I will definitely provide food! There’s a deli close by that has excellent food.

    Depending on when we need to be at the salon in the morning, I want to bring some fruit and maybe some pastries or bagels with mimosas and coffee. For lunch, I haven't figured it out yet, but probably some light sandwiches.

    Still trying to figure out rehearsal dinner but we are going to have breakfast at a diner the morning. I'm also going to have like finger foods like fresh fruit and I look like things to help us throughout the day because the wedding is a little later in the evening.

    My future sister in law just got married in April, and I was helping setup with another one of my close girl-friends, and it was 1pm, and the bride and all her bridesmaids hadn’t had anything to eat all day! I couldn’t believe it! What an important day, and not eating makes you feel so crummy. With the ceremony starting at 4pm! My best friend and I sprung into action and picked up Pita Jungle bride, and all the ladies in the bridal party!

    I’ve definitely been thinking about this a ton for our upcoming wedding (in December!). The groom, and groomsmen are getting ready at their Airbnb, they will have bagels, fruit, and drinks stocked in the house, and I am coodinating to have breakfast tacos delivered to make sure they all have a complete meal before the ceremony.
    I’m not sure what us ladies will do, I have on the schedule an early breakfast, and another lunch meal prior to makeup. It will most likely be a continental breakfast (cooked by my aunts and grandmother — we are getting ready at my parents house), and a lunch delivered to the house, definitely something substantial and healthy so I can keep my nerves calm and still feel good, engergized and not blotted.

    We’re all having breakfast in the hotel (the girls are staying the night before) and having Panera Bread deliver lunch to the hotel about 1.5 hrs before the limo arrives.

    Mimosas, water, breakfast pastries and such in the morning for anyone who stops by. I'm sure a few girls will sleep in as their hair/makeup isn't until later.

    Dad will pick up Panera for all for lunch. Sandwiches, salads (with meat and without), chips and dip, desserts.

    We are all eating at our own houses before the temple sealing(wedding) since we have to be there at 9am and not everyone goes to the sealing(very small room and is meant to be intimate), then pictures a small brunch at wherever we want after(no we are not catering and no it won’t be someplace fancy due to medical conditions that require special prep), then relax until ring ceremony. Everyone can eat bigger meals at their own places if the choose as we have a 4 hr gap between the sealing and the ring ceremony/reception.
    This was the best way for us to do it as we are combining two different cultures(utah weddings which are more come as you can/no rsvp needed/eat say hi and leave, and NJ weddings which are more scheduled/rsvp needed/you come you dance say hi mingle chat eat dance enjoy then leave).

    We will be staying in an Airbnb for the weekend and I just thought of getting a bunch of groceries delivered straight to the house so we'll have all the goodies and munchies we will need for the weekend! I'll be doing mimosas and bloody marys for the girls along with light foods like fruits and veggies, yogurt and granola, eggs, etc. for breakfast the day of. And for lunch we can make our own sandwhiches and salads.
