I’m having a very small wedding. It consists of two friends as witnesses, the groom’s parents, and us.
I’m familiar with what the groom’s parents will eat. And I’ve been keeping in touch with the two friends on Facebook on various topics. Last week, I had asked both friends if they had allergies or certain things that they couldn’t eat. Both replied that they could and would eat anything.
Fast forward a few days. My friend decides to change her mind about what she’s willing and not willing to eat. Now she will only eat healthy, low fat foods. She also won’t eat cereal for breakfast, she won’t eat her version of “junk food”, drink pop or bottled water.
Now before anyone jumps to conclusions, I’m fine with healthy eating and such. But, we’ve been planning extensive trips to show them around. I live in the desert and water is absolutely necessary or dehydration happens fast, especially to people who aren’t used to this climate, like her. We were going to buy bottled water so everyone has something to drink while out and about. There are very few, if any, places to stop and grab something. It’s not very populated where I live. Snacks are also necessary. She wants to snack on non-processed nuts. Well, the grocery store doesn’t sell bulk nuts – only the kind for baking. And there is no way I can afford to pay $9 for an 8 oz bag of nuts.
She knows that we just don’t have the money to pay for the foods that she wants to eat. I also don’t have the means or time to make multiple meals.
I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to make her pay for her food, but I simply cannot afford to pay that kind of money for her “preferred” food.
She and the other friend will be staying here for six days. So, that’s a lot of “specialty” food that would be required.
I have no idea what to do or what to feed her. If I ask, she will say “I’ll eat anything”, but in the same breath, tell me what she will or won’t eat. It’s so confusing!
The groom and I have already planned on dinners for the time frame. Should we just buy the food we were planning on serving and let her choose what she wants to eat or not eat? That’s the only thing I can think of doing.
