Sounds delicious! For us, we had kolaches/pastries/muffins, fresh fruit (bananas, grapes, berries, and cherries), and ‘sparkling sangria’ (basically a mix of wine, champagne, and all the fruit juices we had leftover – it was amazing) waiting when everyone first came over to start hair and make-up, and we had some deli sandwiches delivered before we left, around lunch time. Everyone was fine with that.

lol “Big Ass sandwiches”

This sounds good. I don’t know what the boys will get, but I think we’re going to have someone bring us Panera at the salon, and have mimosas or something, as well. I know lots of people say “eat light,” but I’m not a salad person and I really love Panera mac and cheese, so whatever.

Sounds good. I would get a fruit and veggie tray as well and maybe some muffins/donuts and juice for breakfast.

We got ready at the hotel and had coffee/mimosas/bagels and muffins for breakfast. And lunch was delivered around noon which was sandwich platter, chips and veggies. We also made sure to have plenty of water on hand since there was a lot of running around that day.

It’s good that you are thinking ahead! the last wedding I was in the bride forgot about food and we were STARVING by the time the reception started.

I plan have a fruit tray and hopefully a Chick-Fil-A nugget or strips tray (1 for the boys too!). I’ve heard they say to eat light but fruit and veggies is not going to cut it for me and I don’t really like sweet things in the morning/early afternoon, so muffins and stuff would not be ideal for me. I will definitely be doing mimosas!

I would have some simple, easy to grab breakfast items (fruit and pastries) available when the girls start arriving at 10, and your plan for lunch sounds great. 

On behalf of your bridesmaids, please do not buy into the “eat light” thing.  You might feel too jittery to eat much (unlikely, but possible), but your bridal party is going to get hungry, and they will need real food to keep their energy up throughout the day.  I was in a wedding once where the bride didn’t think about working lunch into the day, and there was nothing to eat but granola bars until dinner was served at the reception.  No bueno.

I didn’t even THINK of this! I made a playlist full of ratchet rap music that I’ll be playing on my last morning as a single woman but completely forgot that we have to eat and drink! lol. OP’s menu looks fantastic. We’ll all (male and female wedding party) be getting ready in the same suite (different bedrooms) so there’s only one room to stock. We’re having a religious ceremony so I don’t feel comfortable drinking alcohol beforehand, but I will offer it for those who would like to.

@sailor:  +1

I can vouch that this is terrible as a BM.  I was in one that was the same thing – except that she didn’t serve dinner, just “heavy apps”.  So I basically didn’t eat all day.  I was rushing to get out of there.
