I had been getting that advice too, and so I made sure that I was going to eat everything that we had!  And I did!  I’m so glad I did too bc I would have probably passed out!  However, I didn’t get to eat anything from our candy or cookie/dessert buffets.    And I only got to eat two bites of the cake when we fed it to each other.  Boo!  Thank goodness we had a little of each layer left, so we were able to eat it the next day at our after party!

I had a bite of each course but I was too nervous and giddy to eat more than that, which is such a pity cuz everyone told me that the food was amazing!

I forced myself to have a nice breakfast with my girlfriends, although I was too nervous to really eat much but the fruit bowl and half a bagel.

And at the reception I had a small plate of food and it was SO difficult to make sure even that small plate made it into my mouth.  There was just so much socializing to be had  πŸ™‚  

Our anniversary is coming up next month (weeee) and to celebrate we are going back to the restaurant that catered the wedding and ordering up a few of the dishes  πŸ™‚

I had room service before my hair & makeup crew came to the hotel room. I didn’t eat a lot though. During the reception we had a buffet so I stood in line and got food too πŸ™‚

I didn’t eat a lot though – it’s hard with the dress on!! lol. I also only had a bite of my cake >"< I wish I had more cake.

I kept reminding myself – a drunk bride is not a fun bride so I didn’t drink too much πŸ˜›

I had one of my bridesmaids bring me coffee that morning then I had some of a breakfast burritto but after that I didn’t eat until dinner and I really didn’t eat that much. I don’t think I had any cake except the piece we fed each other.

I took a bite here and there… I’m so sad I didnt eat more. Now I hope someone I know has their wedding at the same place so I can enjoy the food.

I ate a decent breakfast, barely ate my seaside lunch since I was nervous and had to rush to my hair and make-up appointment, didn’t eat anything during cocktail hour as we were taking pictures, ate only a bite of steak and maybe one or two pieces of grilled veggies during dinner, and one bite of our cake when we cut it.  Looking back, I ate wayyyyy too little, I’m surprised I didn’t pass out.

I ate a decent breafast, a light lunch, and a light dinner.  I didn’t really feel like eating but I knew it would be better so I didn’t get lightheaded or too drunk.

I ate breakfast in my hotel room (i love breakfast in bed!)

I had 1/2 turkey sandwich for lunch

Then mimosas

Right when we arrived, our DJ gave us a plate of appetizers which was a much needed snack!

Then cocktails

I ate 1/2 my dinner (although it was great, I was too excited).  Darling Husband ate the other 1/2 πŸ™‚

More cocktails.

1/2 piece of cake

3:00 am cheeseburger from a drive-thru (yep, i’m a classy gal) πŸ™‚

Haha, yep. I got a full plate at dinner – only to discover that my tight dress wouldn’t allow me to eat more than a few bites! Everyone was amazed to see Darling Husband and I eating – there are a million photos of it.

…but, since we ate, we didn’t get around to every table to greet our guests. We felt really bad about that.

I think I’m with Pengy on this one. But I’m happy that I did eat because it prevented me from being cranky!

I was actually FULL after the wedding!  I guess part of it was because all 200 of our guests were snarfing down their food during dinner, I was hungry, and the food was AWESOME.  I wasn’t nervous at all before hand, so eating some pizza was no problem:)
