I’m thinking of just ordering pizza because I’ll have to feed the cameramen and videographer

We had pizza too, and it was perfect- it made everyone relax a bit.  Pizza doesn’t really fit the bill of not too greasy or heavy.  Order in some sandwiches!

If it were I, I’d do pizza for sure!

I would go for stuff with protein (for energy) and stay away from things that make you bloated!  So watch the fiber and whatever else makes you (personally) bloated.

Why not eat cut veggies or fruits…. ? It’s cool, not too filling but refreshing at the same time? (Cut up cucumbers, baby carrots, grapes, watermelon, strawberry’s…)

I think I’m sure I will stick to my usual for breakfast: Lots of coffee with steamed soy milk, a frozen vanilla soy protein shake, Silk strawberry yogurt with fresh berries and sugar free granola (maybe minus the granola to stay light?). 

I loooooove caviar, it is my favorite indulgence, on my wedding day we’ll be in the hotel that serves the best caviar service ever … so I will have to order it up to the suite … plus champagne omg I’m drooling. It’s my wedding, I deserve it. 

 Also, I want vintage dessert carts like these + those little pastries … exactly like in the picture

We’re thinking of doing a Chick-Fil-A nugget platter as well as fresh fruit and veggies.

Make sure you keep the fluid intake…

I need to give this topic some serious thought for myself. I have irritable bowel syndrome so I need to watch out for anything that irritates it.. which is most any sort of fast food, etc. which would usually be convenient for this purpose. I definitely don’t want to end up doubled up in pain or camping on the toilet at my own wedding!

I love the fruit and veggie plate idea, I am thinking I want some lean protein too, maybe some fresh sliced roast beef or turkey from the Whole Foods deli

Iviary, I have a similar issue. My stomach is so sensitive too and I’m allergic to a whole slew of foods. I have to be careful also, which is hard and I’m paying right now with being weak/sick/bloated b/c I’ve eaten all my allergic foods lately.

MsHymanRoth, I understand. It’s no fun. To my knowledge, I don’t have any particular food allergies (except soy, I think, based on the fact that I vomit shortly after eating it..) or intolerances, but some things definitely tie my intestines in knots. One of my bridesmaids is gluten intolerant and sensitive to lactose and we suffer from very similar ailments despite the different causes. Boo, hiss. I am at least sort of getting it under control. Finally.

Costco would be a great option and is VERY budget friendly. They have a variety of sandwiches, wraps and salads that are already prepared that you can buy the day before and have a family member drop off at your hotel the day of or dropping them off at the venue for you guys to snack on once you get there. I think it’s important to have some food on hand for the entire bridal party (including the boys); just in case anyone gets hungry. The day of the wedding usually starts out early and the entire bridal party will be running around with bride and the groom getting ready and taking pictures. So it’s important to feed them and keep them energized! And remember to drink plenty of water!

@y3llowbee, that’s a great idea. We have a Sam’s Club membership that we can take advantage of in a similar manner.
