- Wedding: August 2009 - St. Thomas of Villanova Church & the F.U.E.L. House
I love all things food, so I’m wondering what you ate — or plan to eat — for breakfast on your wedding day.
I don’t want anything that’ll make me too thirsty or bloated, but I also don’t want to be hungry later in the midst of all the excitement!
Ideas? Recommendations? Anecdotes?

I’m a foodie too. Love to eat, but to be a little more healthy I’m actually trying a new diet for myself that have you eat tiny helpings throughout the morning/afternoon. I think the foods it tells you to eat may be what you are looking for.
I start with an egg or two in the morning ( i prefer hard boiled..easier, travel to work better) and about an hour later i eat about an ounce of walnuts and dried cranberries. It really holds me over until lunch time. Its been really great because it is the perfect amount of food to make you full, but not overly so you feel it. You can also add a packet of instant flavored oatmeal (which I do on occasion, i like the Quaker Oats Apples & Cinnamon) and a yogurt.You feel satisfied and energized-a great feeling to have on the big day!

lately, I’ve been eating an omlet made of egg whites (2) mixed with some garlic powder and pepper with 1/3 cup fat free cheese. It seriously has me saitated until about 1130 when I nosh on some carrots. I think this is what I’m going to go for on the big day.

I should start this off by saying that I love food, I get lightheaded and cranky if I don’t eat for long periods of time and am more likely to eat when I’m anxious than not.
For breakfast, I had a piece of toast with peanut butter and some fruit.
For lunch, my sister made crepes, so I had crepes, fruit, veggies and bacon (who doesn’t want bacon on their wedding day?)
For snack: granola bar and grapes.
At dinner I managed to eat almost of full plate of food and my piece of cake. 🙂
I ate a bit more sugar than I usually do, but I was fine and didn’t feel starving or bloated. I would suggest not straying from what you normally eat. Had my sister not made crepes, I would have been happy with a sandwich or salad.

I always eat – stressed, sick, whatever – EXCEPT the weekend of the wedding. all the excitement must have gotten to me because I just had NO appetite. I barely ate anything at the Rehearsal dinner – I got a full plate of food, sat down, and could only force down a few bites! I ended up just eating a part of a bagel for breakfast, made myself eat part of a sandwich for lunch . I was more worried about the drinking because I didn’t want to have to run to the bathroom too much in my big ‘ol dress 🙂

If I don’t eat in the morning I get cranky and dizzy. LOL. I have to eat like 5 small meals a day otherwise I can’t function.. and I have to eat more if there is champagne involved because it goes right to my head-so it’s safe to say I will be pigging out all day! I might explode out of my dress.lol!

i either read this or my DOC told me this, but grapes are really good for the day of the wedding! keeps you hydrated without glugging down loads of water and then having to deal with going to the bathroom in your wedding dress, haha. i don’t know what i’ll be eating the day of, i imagine i’m going to be so nervous i won’t even remember! my mom will probably make sure i at least have eggs or something.

I ran three miles, and then had the breakfast buffet at the Lake McDonald Lodge. Toast, a farmer’s scramble, coffee, and juice. MMMMM-mm!!

I feel like I’ll forget to eat, but that would bad since I faint if I don’t eat food. I think I’ll have lots of fruits, crackers and my trust Luna Bars on hand.

I’m planning on a little protein, but NOTHING that could upset my tummy if I get anxious. I’m planning on either a smoothie (peanut butter, chocolate protien powder, soy milk, and bananas) or something similarly yummy yet easy. Of course, I may just cave to my disgusting breakfast weakness… the McGriddle!

MMMM … goodness there are so many silly little things to think about!! Breakfast?!?! Probably my favorite — an omelet with ham, tomato and feta. YUM. I want one right now! haha.

My husband had his bachelor party the night before and while he wasn’t hung over, he did want to sleep in. I had breakfast with his younger brother and the bed and breakfast we stayed at (and were married at). It was cute and it gave me some time to get to know his brother.

good question! I imagine my mom will make a nice breakfast (we’ll have some of the BMs staying with us), but I might just stick with my normal breakfast of Kashi Go Lean and blueberries. Maybe I’ll eat some PB with a banana, too.
It’ll be August, so I know I’ll need to drink a lot…but man, I’d love to avoid as many bathroom trips as possible!!!
