I am constantly hearing about brides who didn’t eat anything on their wedding day, barely ate, didn’t eat enough, didn’t have time to eat their dinner during their reception and I am baffled by this! I remember being told this before our wedding and I kept telling everyone that wasn’t going to be me and they were like YEAH RIGHt youll see….
Well, I ate SO much on my wedding day. For breakfast I had 2 croissants and some fruit. Throughout the day I had croissants, cheese and crackers, fruit and a couple granole bars along with water, juice and champagne. Then for dinner I was able to eat lots of bread, a full salad and my entire plate of food. I even had our dessert (besides cake) which was chocolate covered strawberries. I am never too nervous to eat (I love food) and I made sure that I was able to eat because I knew I’d be hungry and wanted to make sure I ate what we paid for!
How much did you eat on your wedding day?

I had breakfast… which I can’t seem to remember what was.
And then I ate a little bit at the reception (brunch), but my tummy was still nervous feeling so I didn’t eat alot.
I did eat dinner though once Darling Husband and I got to our honeymoon location… It was nummy! =)

I was so full by the time dinner came I couldn’t eat it lol.
Pastry + Coffee for breakfast, Chick fil chicken nuggets a for lunch, I prob ate 8-10 passed appetizers (venue saved some for us), ravioli (1st course), salad, a sorbet intermezzo and cake. They sent the dinner to our room (NY Strip + Sea Bass) and I ate the sea bass at like 1 in the morning haha.

Breakfast I had:
1 slice of toast with butter
1/4 of a quesadilla
Wasn’t hungry for some reason
I wanted to eat, I had time to eat, the food was AMAZING but I just couldn’t eat. I don’t know if the dress was too tight on my stomach or if it was nerves or if it was adrenaline but I just could not eat.
I was starving when I got to cocktail hour, had 1 or 2 nibbles and then wasn’t hungry any more.
Same with dinner. Had 1 bite of steak and fish and each of the sides and couldn’t eat any more.
Also only probably drank 1 glass of champagne total all night. Again, not sure why, had every opportunity to, people were offering me things all night, I just couldn’t.
Thankfully the caterer sent most of the food home with Mother-In-Law so I had it for dinner the next night in heaping portions!

For breakfast I had a really delicious hearty meal that my mom made.
Then I didn’t eat lunch, but between the ceremony and reception we snuck off to a little pizza joint and had some pizza by the slice!
Then I only had 2 appies during our whole reception. I was so busy chatting with people everywhere I hardly ate anything and I’m honestly annoyed at myself for it!

@PitBulLover: I was totally like you. I ate bagels and cream cheese for breakfast with some mimosa’s. Then I had panera ordered in for lunch. I brought snacks with me too haha, so I had a granola bars and some pretzels during pics. We were both able to eat our bread, salad, meals, and dessert! I even snagged a piece of late night pizza! I was definitely not starving at all 🙂

I ate nothing. Literally, nothing. All day. I have no idea how I didn’t pass out!
But let me tell you, as soon as we got to our hotel room that night, we ordered room service for me right away!

@KatNYC2011: well that sucks you couldnt eat! But at least you got to enjoy it later on. I would’ve been pissed if I couldn’t have eaten my delicious food!!
@.twist.: ok Im totally jealous that you went to a pizza place in between! Though I would’ve been terrified of getting sauce on my dress.

I am an eater, so what I am about to say still shocks me. I didn’t eat that much on my wedding day. (GASP!)
I always thought that I would, even though I hear about how people don’t eat much because of nerves, but I swore that wouldn’t happen to me.
When I first woke up I ate a leftover pancake and had a starbucks latte. I knew I should definitely eat while I could just in case nerves did kick in. My friend made me egg whites but I only at 3 bites of them.
For lunch we made a pizza, which I normally devour, but I only ate 2 bites of it. As the ceremony drew closer, my appetite grew smaller. I barely chugged down half a mimosa and my mom tried to give me some cheese but it didn’t sound good at all.
After the ceremony I had brought my favorite chips on the limo but most of the wedding party ate them all, leaving me with only a small handful.
At the reception I sat down with a salad and a plate full of food. I ate my salad but then got pulled away for things. I kept coming back to my food only to get pulled away again so I finally sat down and ate the best thing on my plate before having to run off again. When I got back my plate was gone.
I ate the one bite of cake that we fed each other and a soft pretzel which we served around 9:30.
After it was all over I found the extra cake and ate a piece but that was about it. It sounds like a lot but they were all just little bites at a time. I actually felt ok and had enough energy, though. Try to eat if you can!

I had brunch while getting my hair and make-up done. It consisted of mimosas, fruit, and a subway sandwich platter.
Then I ate both appetisers and the full meal (we had a buffet and I filled my plate and ate it all) at the reception.
Darling Husband and I also ordered delivery pizza to our hotel room during the wedding night.

For breakfast I had an enormous chocolate muffin, some fruit a smoothie and 2 monsters. For lunch (at the wedding) I ate some fruit, jello and like 2 meatballs (sniff sniff) I was so mad that I didn’t get to eat more of our delicious food! and for dinner after the wedding my hubby went to the office of the place we stayed and got some burritos, cup of noodles chips and other assorted junk food and snacks.

@PitBulLover: I kept saying I was going to eat, that I loved my food and I wouldn’t be one of those brides who didn’t eat.
I had plenty of opportunity but just could not. I didn’t feel sick or full I just couldn’t really eat!
There are some apps I did miss out on that I’m a bit upset about, but as long as my guests enjoyed themselves that’s what counts.

Ah yes I’m forgetting to mention that we ordered room service at the hotel. It was a cheese and crackers and soft pretzels with different mustards spread. It was delicious.
@icedchaitea: how did you eat nothing?! Did you try to eat? How were you not starving??
@yellowlace: well even though you didnt eat much at least you at a little bit here and there!!
For me it was hard to remember to drink water. It was so hot out and I wasn’t even thinking about it, but luckily my bridesmaids and mom kept forcing me to drink water. I was happy they did that!

@PitBulLover: I didn’t drink water either! I think I was paranoid about having to pee.
When we got to the hotel my parents had arranged for chocolate and champagne to be in our room. We did drink that and eat the chocolates (unfortunately there was no room service option).

All of the girls got ready in a hotel room, and we had nibbly things to eat all morning (veggies and dip, fruit platter, cookies, mini-muffins, etc.). The hotel also had a free breakfast that my girls enjoyed. I picked a bit at our in-room snacks, but didn’t have much other than a glass of champagne. Too nervous!
Between the ceremony and the reception hubs and I had champagne in the limo. There were no apps left when we got to the reception at the end of the cocktail hour, so didn’t eat until dinner. I had salad, most of my entree and bread – by this point I was starvin marvin!
Even though my nerves calmed down after the ceremony, I think the combination of my dress being really heavy and all the excitement, I was thirsty more than anything. I just remember drinking mostly water as the night went on… only had a few glasses of wine!
