My ceremony is at 7 with a cocktail reception to follow.

I definitely plan on eating – I have to… I get lightheaded if I don’t.

My plan is to eat breakfast in the morning, and then we have lunch coming around 12:30 – 1:00.  My hair and makeup are getting done after that and we’ll have pictures at 4. I am sure I won’t have time or be interested in eating after lunch… but I am bringing some almonds, and snacks to have on hand, just in case…

Good luck!

We’re having our ceremony at 5:30, cocktail at 6.  I’ll have bfast with the family and then hair and make-up from 10-1.  Since pictures start at 3, there will only be a small window to get something to eat before getting dressed, etc, I’ll probably have my mom pick up a platter of small sandwiches and fruit/veggies to snack on.

I’m thinking about packing up a cooler to keep in the hotel room that my bridesmaids and I will be getting ready in.  Things that I know always fill me up yet won’t many any sort of a mess are almonds, hard-boiled eggs, and apples.  Another good thing, for me at least, about eating those things is that it’s pretty unlikely for them to cause any sort of stomach issues.

You should definitely try to eat something during the day.  I know I was pretty nervous, but my bridesmaid made me eat a sandwich in the middle of the day.  I only ended up eating about half of it and an apple, but I really needed the snack!  I think I would have been super crabby and STARVING by the time I finally got to eat later in the day.  It’s a good idea to have some sort of snacks on hand–fruit or nuts are a good option.

Hummus and baby carrots are always good for me, bananas as well.

Maybe you could have some snacks baggy around you just in case you need it 😉

My MOH’s main responsiblity is to make sure I eat that day. I tend to get excited and forget, so it’s critical.

Definitely eat! Nerves coupled with hunger and possibly a little bridesmaids champagne toast is a blood sugar disaster in the making. You don’t want a sudden blood pressure drop to have you fainting at the alter! I would suggest something like nuts or non-messy veggies like carrots, but don’t forget about packaged items like granola bars or high-fiber energy bars. Those things are made to fill you up and stick with you for a while.

Definately eat!  And assign the job of remembering to bring food and make you eat to someone else, so you won’t forget.  Trail mix and fruit is always easy to carry around.
