When I was the Maid/Matron of Honor for my BFF’s wedding I got a sandwhich platter from Subway and a fruit tray. I did this just because I felt I should not because I was asked. Should I expect her to do the same? Or should I have her delegate that as a task to one of the other bridesmaids?

Delegate that task. I don’t think there are any expectations as far as lunch, so that’ll be up to you to plan. I ordered chik-fil-a trays myself (well, Bridesmaid or Best Man did while I was doing my hair, but I told her to!), and my husband picked them up on the way to the church.

It was something I hadn’t even thought of! My parents picked up lunch for everyone after our hair appointment on our way back to the hotel room at our venue!

Make sure you plan this and delegate.

I ordered a breakfast and sandwich tray ahead of time when I was getting married. If you want someone do do this, you’re going to have to delegate. If your Maid/Matron of Honor was already planning on doing this, no harm done. But if she wasn’t planning on it and you just hope she’ll figure it out, you’ll have a whole lot of cranky pants on your hands on the day of.
Don’t forget about beverages either!

I’d designate someone to be in charge of food now. No sense in going hungry because your bridal party forgot.
@sweetpea87: We did Chick Fil A trays too! Best decision ever.

@LGenz: Ooooh Chick fil a.
Should I pay? Or the girls split it?

I would delegate the task and I would also pay for it, that’s my personal opinion, though. I wouldn’t be offended if I, as a bridesmaid, was asked to pay for it myself.
We’re all getting ready at the cottage where we’re spending the night, so I’m just planning to stock the fridge ahead of time with brunch food & mimosas on my dime. I figure they deserve at least that for all their help and for traveling.

I delegated the task to my sister (MOH) but I paid.
