  • Wedding: November 2008

To avoid the time spent on greeting tables, my husband and I decided to greet our guests during cocktail hour which was nice to be a part of it and we kind of surprised everyone!

I ate my dinner plate, stole a couple of forkfulls of food from my husband’s plate, and I also asked for a second piece of cake.  My husband and I paid for our wedding so I was not going to let anything get in the way from me eating and drinking.  I walked around with a cocktail the whole time and danced my butt off so bad that my toes were numb for three days AFTER the wedding.

 🙂  Make sure you enjoy your day because it’s only one day and it speeds by so fast!

Our wedding day was one of the rare occasions I had no appetite!

I had only 1/2 of a chinese bun for breakfast that I forced down.

And then at dinner, of the 10 course of the Chinese banquet, I had only 1 bite of fish, and then just the 2 bites of cake that was fed to me by Mr. T! Yup, and that was it!

Oh my, I hope I get to eat on my wedding day.  Its a new england seafood extravangza!  Would it be bad if I just hover around the boat of shrimp cocktail and the raw bar at the cocktail hour?  I mean people can come to be as I slurp down oysters right?

I met our banquet captain during our tasting, and he said that his main job for the night is to make sure that we (my Fiance and I!) eat! Hee hee! I think a doggy bag sounds like a good idea– I’ll have to see if I can get some of our food delivered to our room for late night too!

We were looking at a first draft of a catering menu the other night. Pratically drooling and the Fiance looks at me and said "We’re not going to get to eat any of this are we?" NOPE.

I’ve been to so many weddings where the bride & groom barely sat down for more than 5 minutes much less eat! That’s why I’m making sure we have breakfast that morning! Delivered or the boys will have to go get them. I get extremely cranky when I’m hungry. Hehe

Having been forewarned of the "couples’ famine," I made sure that we had a plate ready to eat (ours was buffet style) upon our entrance. Ordering the slideshow after the cake cutting, with entertainment from our MCs in between, allowed us to enjoy the cake too!

I don’t know how y’all went through the night without any food! I know I didn’t eat much leading up to the big day so I could fit into my dress!

I forced myself to have breakfast so I wouldn’t faint in our super hot church, but my mom had me so stressed out for the rest of the day that I wasn’t really all that hungry! I was really excited to eat too b/c everyone was saying how good everything was!

My Darling Husband and I made a point to eat at our reception. He had even joked about giving the Best Man a taser to ward off any distractions. We had a moment to ourselves after the ceremony where our caterer brought us the appetizers being served. We made a point to sit down and enjoy the meal as well because the food was so delicious. I’d say my Darling Husband ate more than I did though because I was so anxious to greet our guests.

Our caterer also packaged together two of EVERYTHING that was served so that we could have a midnight snack/dinner on another night.

I definitely ate. 

Toast and fruit before the wedding.

Our servers set aside some hors d’oeuvres for me on a plate at our table because I didn’t want to eat standing up (too easy to spill on the dress) but I wanted to try them.

And I ate most of my dinner.  It was delicious food – the chef was amazing – I couldn’t pass up that opportunity.

I only got one bite of my wedding cake though because they served it at our seats and by that time I had hit the dance floor, never to sit down at my seat again.  Good thing we get an anniversary cake from our bakery on our one-year anniversary because I heard it was delicious.

Also, most planners if they’re any good, will make sure the bride and goom eat at least something during the day.  But if you have a nervous stomach, you shouldn’t feel pressured to eat much.
