i’ve been getting such advice a lot too, mrs bee!

but we’re only having about 40 guests in a small restaurant, so we’re definitely intending to enjoy the delicious french food

Yes I ate!  I ate breakfast that morning with my cup of tea, my doc made sure I had a small lunch, my husband and I had some hors d’ouevers and champagne right after the ceremony, and we made sure we took the time to sit down for 15 minutes to eat during the reception. 

Wow — I guess I was a little piggy too!

Pengy: LMAO!!! 

I gobbled down that dinner, even though people kept interrupting it.  Shoot, I couldn’t stomach eating a single thing that entire day, so when dinner was placed in front of me it didn’t stand a chance!  It was the cake I never got to eat, except for the one bite when we cut it.  They made us a little plate with 4 different slices (1 of each layer) and when I FINALLY got back to my seat to eat it, the plate had been stolen!  I found out later on it was my cousin, which was fine by me because he’s been in and out of the hospital and I was just happy to have him there that day…poor guy practically had to bride his doctor to get released for a few hours, then he had to be back by midnight like Cinderellla.

I had half a bagel for breakfast, tried 4 of the hors d’oeuvres, and had 2 bites of cake.  And all I drank the entire day was one glass of water, and then some champagne later at our after-party. 

Frankly, I felt FINE and do not regret barely eating at all — I wish I could have tasted more, but I never felt lightheaded/sick/hungry.  And not drinking anything was fantastic because I never once had to pee during the 13 hours I was in my dress!

I can’t imagine not eating on the day of my wedding (I love food and have never turned down a chance to eat) But just in case I some how miss out on dinner I have asked our caterer to pack up a doggy bag to take back to the hotel with us.

I ate!  What kept me getting up from the table was not the need to go around to each table, but that my stomach was hurting.  There was no way I was going to miss out on the crab cake though.

I ate lunch that day while we were getting ready. But at the reception, we really had no appetite! We barely touched our food, even our filet mignon. We had it packed up and sent to our room, but then didn’t feel like eating it later either. Luckily we had McDs cheeseburgers as our late night snack, so we had some of those! yum!

I was offered food by the servers and even had a plated meal….but with all the excitement, I just wasn’t hungry.  I ended up taking 2 bites of my meal and 1 bite of my cake.  Thank goodness my reception venue wrapped up some leftovers!

I am really nervous about what to eat before the ceremony.  I sometimes get digestion problems or a bloaty feeling.  I so don’t want to feel like that in my beautiful dress.

I ate! My  fabulous DOC made sure my husband and I sat down for the main course and brought us a plate of apps while taking post ceremony photos.  BUT I have never in my life had my appetite dissapear the way it did the wedding weekend.  I barely ate at the Rehersal dinner, not because I didn’t have time, but just because I wasn’t hungry.  So weird.  Day of I had half a bagel for breakfast and half a sandwich for lunch…

I had a few bites of my sub at lunch, but ate the entire meal at dinner. It was sooo good it was hard not to eat it all!
