I will be getting ready with my BMs at the hotel the morning of the wedding and then heading to the venue at 2 to get first look pics. What have other brides done or doing for food in between getting ready and reception???

I grabbed a sub from Publix (my local grocery store) and ate it before getting my makeup and hair done. We had to drive from my house to the hair salon so we just stopped on the way.

I got a big subway sandwich, and then some chips, and some fruit, and bottles of water.
Had fruit, danishes, and bagels when getting ready

My bridal suite was one of the rooms at my venue. They catered plates of finger sandwiches and fresh fruit for everyone in the bridal suite and the groom’s suite. Oh, and they served us lemonade and fresh brewed iced tea.

We have my salon all to ourselves, so we’ll be eating there while we get ready. We’ll probably do Panera since it’s close and we can pick it up or have someone stop by with it.

I’m getting ready at the hotel with my ladies. Groom and groomsmen will also be there but in a different section. I know what I want to eat (Native Foods, yum!) so we will designate one groomsman to go pick up food from there for the vegans and send another groomsman to La Brea Bakery for the meat eaters.

The salon that I am going to is providing brunchy food, and I am going to have breakfast with my Fiance before we head off to get ready. I doubt I will eat between lunch and cocktail hour, but my Maid/Matron of Honor will have a granola bar just in case.

Breakfast at the salon from an awesome cafe across the street, maybe sandwiches for lunch before the photographer comes at 2pm?

I ordered delivery from a cafe around the corner. It was Panera-type stuff, salads and wraps. I also bought fruit and champange the night before. I mostly ate grapes, a bit of salad, and champagne.

We had bagels, donut holes, and fruit for breakfast. My Maid/Matron of Honor was awesome and picked these up for me on the way to the hotel where we were getting ready. For lunch, we ordered Jimmy Johns subs for everyone who was hanging out in the room. It was quick and easy and they deliver.

We’ll likely have something like Panera for breakfast, then if there’s time, grab something quick for lunch. I’m not counting on there being much time for lunch, though.

I want to get a nice brunch around 10 or 11, then pick up something light for “getting ready” time – salads and/or sandwiches. Probably something like Panera, Publix, or Subway, like some of the other PPs.
