What does everyone plan to eat the day of your wedding? We have a jam packed day of prepping and will not have time to go out anywhere to eat. My future sister in law (a pastry chef) will be bringing breakfast pastries and a fruit platter for the morning, but I need to get something for lunch.
our venue and hotel are a bit out of the way so we will need to pick up the food on the way into town the morning before… I had planned to pick up a sandwich/wrap platter the morning before and keep it in the hotel fridge, but I’m worried about it getting soggy. Any other ideas? I want to eat, but not bloat…

I had about 12 women getting ready in my suite, and we had Subway. I don’t think it would be too soggy… maybe you could hold the mayo/mustard/dressing? I would just consider how much food you’d need and if it would fit in the hotel fridge. Maybe someone could bring a cooler for champagne and overflow sandwiches?
I don’t even remember if I got to eat while getting ready. I do remember lettuce and olives ALL OVER and leaving for the venue praying housekeeping would be back before my new husband and I returned. Haha! I think my aunt stopped by the front desk to make sure. It was all sparkly upon our return.

We just ran to a grocery store the night before and bought cold cuts/rolls/condiments. Everyone put together their own sandwiches right before we got dressed. That might help with the soggy problem if you’re interested in doing something like that!

Let’s see, instead of sandwiches, how about a cheese, meat and veggie platter? With crackers and maybe little toasts as well? It’s like deconstructed sandwiches so they dont get soggy.

We were fairly hungover from the rehearsal dinner and ordered a bunch of greasy room service food.
If you can, I’d try to get something delivered to wherever you are getting ready so you guys can all eat. You will definitely be starving and need sometihng!

I had a mimosa and a power bar — the kind with extra protein. that’s literally all I could choke down!
I put out stuff for people to make sandwiches, but they barely touched it.

My hotel had a complimentary breakfast, which I definitely hit up the morning of, and my MOH brought me a croissant and frappuccino from Starbucks. And then I don’t think I ate anything until after the ceremony, after the family photos, when the caterer brought out some appetizers. I was kind of starving, but couldn’t eat much because my dress was so tight! And when it came to dinner it just looked like I barely picked at my plate, since nothing would fit. So definitely try to have some little snacks around, especially if your dress will be tight! It’s hard to eat much at any one time…

@Sa7208: We are doing a subway tray and I am getting all of my bms and mohs favorute snack or candy to go with. (I sent a survey and one girls favorite snack is sausage?! So candy it is hahaha) We also have a breakfast free from the hotel in the morning but I know I never eat breakfast so I wanted to plan on a more substantial lunch.

Thanks all!! Crackers and cheese is a good idea. The hotel has a full size fridge for us to use, so space isn’t an issue… just sogginess 🙂
everyone tells tells me I won’t much that day… But I feel like I will! I’ve been in a ton of weddings and every time,by the time dinner arrives I’m starved! I’m the type of girl that gets cranky if I don’t munch on something every few hours, so I know I’m going to want a pre wedding meal 🙂

I had pancakes with apple and bacon for breakfast which was a big meal. I didn’t really eat lunch due to being too nervous, but my Dad had brought sandwiches with him.

For the morning my mother made cinnamon buns and bacon. For lunch we had lasagna and cesar salad (the ceremony was at 2, so we had plenty of time to eat and brush our teeth)

Keeping it simple. Sandwich tray from subway.

I ordered a deli platter of cold cuts and picked up rolls, condiments, etc. I picked up the extra stuff the day before and had a friend (not in the wedding party) pick up the deli tray from the grocery store in the mid-morning. Then we all made sandwiches before getting dressed… and everyone also could brush their teeth, reapply lipstick (before heading off to bridal party pics).

I didn’t feel like eating because I was too nervous before the ceremony but my mom made me have something. She had trays of sandwiches, cheese, meat, fruit, etc. out for my bridesmaids so I just picked at that and had half a can of gingerale to settle my stomach.
I didn’t eat much at dinner because I was too excited and busy looking around, talking to my guests, etc.
I was starving by the time we got to our hotel at the end of the night, but it was too late for room service! So we ate some chocolates and drank champagne haha. Let me say we ordered a huge breakfast from room service the next morning!
