our wedding is going to be at 4pm, so i will have to have breakfast and a light lunch before.
what did you guys eat before the wedding? what is filling and will keep you going until dinner and the reception while also not making you tired or bloated? any recommendations, experiences, warnings?

we had bagels for breakfast and sandwiches and wraps for lunch, our ceremony was also at 4pm. Honestly, I only ate about half of my sandwich, I was just too excited to be hungry! The same may be true for you! Just stay away from anything that smells (onions, garlic) and anything that can leave stuff in your teeth (pepper and herbs and leafy vegetables like brocolli)

For breakfast I think I had a chocolate croissant because I missed my carbs. For lunch I ordered a platter of chick fil a chicken nuggets for our room. Clearly I am the model of health

Smaller, high-protein meals…carbs will give you gas and bloat you!

@LGenz: LMBO! You’re great! I would probably eat something like that too!

I wasn’t able to eat any breakfast, but I did eat half of a Jimmy Johns sub for lunch. It was great being able to have it just delivered!

I’m actually really worried about this since as much as I would love to just provide sandwiches, I have a gluten allergy. So I’m trying to figure out where to order some salads with protein for everyone.

For breakfast I had a croissant and some fruit and cheese. Then I had a couple granola bars throughout the day since my wedding wasn’t until 6 PM.

I was planning on having a fruit, vegetable, and cheese platter delivered to the hotel room we will be getting ready in. Our ceremony isn’t until 7 PM so, I may add a tray of wraps to that too although I think I will be too excited/nervous to eat anything.
