rittenhousenewbee:  thats what my husband did, he ordered a big sandwich platter and had drinks at the house for the GM. For my BMs, we were at a salon and with the bridal package, also comes a breakfast platter (bagels, fruits, coffee) and mimosas free of charge.

We just ordered a bunch of food from a restaurant down the street, but a tray of sandwiches and finger foods sound like a good idea too.

rittenhousenewbee:  We got a meet and cheese tray from a local deli and just had that out with crackers and rolls all day for people to snack on.

rittenhousenewbee:  Probably be buying some platters from the grocery store. Don’t want anyone to get hungry (also it is easy to forget to eat – which is what happened at one wedding I was in). Really good idea!

We were at a hotel, so we just used room service.

In your case, I would get some cheese and crackers, fruit, veggies, or something else light for snacking.  Be careful with dips, as they can spill much easier and could stain!

We got sandwich trays made at a local grocery store, one for the guys and one for the girls.

We arranged for lunch buffets for both groups. My girls and I got ready in a seperate conference room of the hotel we were married in so that we’d have space to spread out. We had fancy finger sandwiches, a few different salads, cheese and crackers, veggies and dip and mimosas. The guys had a selection of wraps and subs, chips, salads and beer. Our bridal party was well fed.

rittenhousenewbee:  My mom brought us breakfast and my MOH made a snack basket!  It was inexpensive and perfect for what we needed.  There was no leftovers that anyone had to clean up and no wasted food.

We just had a bunch of fruit and pastries for anybody who wanted it.  My husband went out on the morning of and brought it back to the house.

My mother in law brought the leftovers from rehearsal dinner. (Don Pablos) It was messier than I would have liked, but my mom brought a veggie tray and a big jar of Nutella and pretzels. I think I are one bite of a chicken taco and a couple carrot sticks. And that was all I had all day, minus breakfast and when DH and I got to our apartment after the wedding, we ordered pizza.


I think something like a veggie tray or cheese and cracker tray would suffice.

I’m getting a tray of sandwiches from a local deli or the grocery store (haven’t decided yet). Getting one for where the girls are getting ready and another for where the guys are getting ready.
