We have hair appointments starting at our salon at 9am. We’ll all hang out there that morning and my stylist said most bridal parties bring some sort of breakfast to eat there. Now I’m brainstorming.
I thought maybe I could whip up some overnight french toast the day before and have my Fiance put it in the oven that morning and bring it over for us (and maybe a fruit tray too)! I think that would be cute to have him deliver it 🙂
What are some other good ideas or easy breakfast recipes? Or what are your breakfast plans?

You want something that is easy to eat while you’re sitting in the stylist chair, so I would say nothing that requires a fork. We got a tray of assorted pastries from Panera, which went over really well.

@Leprechaun: Ohh that is a good point that I hadn’t thought of. Hmmm…
I don’t want to spend a bunch of money either though so I’d rather make something at home (or have Mother-In-Law make something).

You could make a variety of muffins the night before. You could even attempt to make home made doughnuts.

I’d look for a really good coffee cake recipe, like a graham cracker streusal coffee cake that would be yummy, easy to make and while it’s sweet it’s a bit more substantial than a donut.

For my sister’s wedding, we made an egg bake the day before and put it uncooked in the fridge. Baked it in the morning for an hour, and we could eat a nice warm meal during / after our hair appointments. We had ours with mushrooms, breakfast sausage, swiss cheese, eggs, and wheat bread – delicious!

Personally, I’d stay away from anything super sugary (no need to make the nerves rush any more than they already will be). I ended up making a quick cheese quesadilla and that was that. I think if you do mini quiches or a b’fast casserole the night before, that would be idea – satiating and no huge insulin spike.

I was thinking about this when I wrote out the schedule for that day. I just wrote eat “wholesome” breakfast but couldn’t think of something that would constitute just that! WHo knows when we will be able to catch a bite after that so it needs to be something that is healthy, fills you up and keeps you going for a good while!

Day before the wedding I picked up a tray of assorted breakfast things from a local bakery. It came with all sorts of things, lemon curd and raspberry jam. So good and easy! Grab a big container of juice and you’re good to go.
I had another tray of sandwiches that I got from the same bakery for lunch.
The trays were pretty big so I split them up and had one for the guys and one for the girls.

Yeah I would go for something simple like the fruit tray. My BMs bought a bunch of bagels and pastries at Panera and we ate those.

We’ve always stayed at hotels and eaten hotel breakfasts for weddings. For mine we were at a historic inn that came with a continental breakfast.
I would stick with something easy, like a fruit tray and bagels. I wouldn’t want to worry about cooking anything the night before my wedding, or the day of.

Omg just the thought of eating on the morning of my wedding has my stomach hurting, lol! I can’t eat when I’m nervous =P But, I would agree with everyone else about the pastries and juice. That sounds like a great idea. I’d at least want to feed my BMs, even if I can’t eat, myself.

I like low-sugar (nerves are high enough) and bite sized so you can eat as you go
We had mini bagels with cream cheese
mini-whole wheat flax seed muffins my mom made and the froze for this.
muffin tin egg fritattas (same frozen and defrosted)
sliced fruit and greek yogurt with granola
All the above were eaten!
