So… I’m sitting here watching HIMYM (How I Met Your Mother) on Netflix and Marshall and Lilly got married, and can’t get any darn wedding food!
So during your wedding were you starving?? Did you get a little bit to eat? Or did you get to eat your fill??
And if you did eat… how did you do it?!?
Maybe there will be some useful info to be found here!

I haven’t experienced this yet… I have heard that you should ask the caterer to box up a meal or two (if this is possible) for your hubby and you though so you can enjoy the meal the next day just in case!

Nope, Darling Husband and I didn’t get the chance and I am still pissed about it. Everytime we tried, someone needed something. We ate hotdogs on the grill when we got home.

I didnt get many appetizers, my favorite part, but I definitely ate my whole dinner!

- Wedding: September 2011 - Bent Creek Winery (Livermore, California); Reception: Family Residence (San Ramon, California)
Yep! We showed up to the reception and made a b-line for the buffet. I was starving after the ceremony/two hours of picture taking, and I needed food asap. I didn’t get much of our cake, though, just the bite Darling Husband fed me during our cake cutting.

We were able to get dinner (buffet) and cake but I really didn’t feel like eating, so I didn’t enjoy it very much.

Yeah, we had plenty of time to eat, but I didn’t eat much. I wasn’t hungry at all! The caterers were very attentive, but the attention was wasted on me!

I’m not married yet but this is a huge concern of mine. I am hoping to avoid it by not having a bridal table. Fingers crossed sitting with my guests will mean I can still eat… otherwise, I am not afraid to talk with my mouth full if I have to haha

Getting married in a month and this is one of my concerns! We’re having our reception at Lawry’s and I absolutely LOVE prime rib.. with creamed spinach on the side. GAME OVER. No joke, I’m almost as excited for the prime rib as I am to get married to the guy of my dreams haha. We’re going to be sitting at our own sweetheart table for dinner so I’m hoping we’ll be able to eat! Another concern? My super fitted dress isn’t going to be able to hold me in once I devour my meal!

We ate. Right after the ceremony, the two of us went into a private room for a few minutes and they put out a HUGE buffet of apps. They thought all of our wedding party would be in there too…but no, just us! I didn’t actually eat any of it because I was too excited, but hubs ate all of it lol
During the reception we had our own waitress, but she was really more like a servant! She did anything we needed and when it was time for dinner, she came and found us, dragged us to the sweetheart table and stood there until we ate something…she was like another mom! I was so glad I ate, though. I ate mostly protein through the day to avoid bloating, and then ate most of my dinner

I am thankful that my Maid/Matron of Honor made me eat breakfast because I got back from taking pictures and had about 30 minutes and then people were coming in to clear us out of our reception area, I was a little pissed about that. I got to eat a cupcake when we got home.

Darling Husband and I had ample time to eat. We had a buffet meal, but our caterer prepared plates for Darling Husband and I. So we were able to eat while everyone else was getting food. Then we could visit the tables while everyone else was eating.
While I had ample time to eat, I ate almost nothing. The combo of adrenaline, nerves, the tight dress, and being the center of attention meant I just had NO appetite!
Thankfully our caterer gave us the leftovers, so we had them for dinner the next night.

Not really. They put a spread of the food in the bride’s room for us to eat privately for a few minutes after the wedding, but we were still so wound up, we didn’t eat much. Halfway through the reception, we calmed down a bit, but had no chance to eat. But then we went to dinner and didn’t eat much.
I am still annoyed we didn’t get to enjoy the wedding food, but it wasn’t because we didn’t have time. Just too nervous/excited.

Gah, I better get to eat more than a few bites. The one thing I made clear to Fiance and venue is that I was going to eat that food – Rawrstuffmyface! Yum!

I didn’t eat anything. I wanted to — we were the first to get food, so it was there in front of me — but between feeling excited and my wedding gown’s corset that kept tightening, I could barely breathe, let alone eat.
I really, really wish I’d had something, but adrenaline kept me going for the most part. After I changed into a more comfy outfit for the after-party, I managed to have a few bites of food and cake and drink a glass of wine. That was the first thing I’d managed to consume since the welcome dinner!
