The last time I was in a wedding back home, the venue provided us with fruit trays in the morning and we ordered Panera bread for lunch.  There were also some snacking things laid out in the getting ready room like veggies, chips, nuts etc.  I was really glad for the snacks because the venue kept sending up champagne and we would have all been soused by first look if we hadn’t had the food.

Pick up a sandwich platter & fruit tray from the grocery store. Or just order pizza delivery. Doesn’t matter as long as you have something.

Since we had a 9:00am hair and makeup start for a 3:30pm ceremony, we had tons of breakfast food (croissants, fruit platter, yogurt parfaits), and lunch food (little sandwiches, sushi, chips and dip, veggie platter, little desserts like brownies and mini donuts). Also lots of things to drink, both non-alcoholic (coffee, tea, juice) and champagne 🙂

It was pretty much all eaten. Our hungry flower girl/ring bearer and their parents also came to eat with us, as well as the MOB/MOG and dates of the bridal party!

Ahhh!! You’re an April bride like me. I’m the 14th April.

We are getting ready at mine. Makeup is from 8.30 so we are ordering uber eats for breakfast. Then we have delicious chocolate, fruit, sandwiches etc!! Nothing that will make us too full or bloated.

Cocktail sushi platter so they are bit sized and won’t spill/ruin your makeup. Also filling and delish!

We had a full English breakfast at our hotel, then party food (e.g. mini sausage rolls, chicken bites, mixed salad) from the supermarket for lunch.

I did fruit, bagels, and yogurt. And we had mimosas and did a Starbucks run when we woke up.

We had so much food at my parents’s house it was ridiculous!  My mom got a lot of stuff like Panera – bagels, cream cheese and breakfast sandwiches – breakfast type food.  Then one of my bridesmaids brought some coffee cakes from a local bakery and my sister stopped at McDonalds and brought a bunch of yogert parfaits.  For lunch my mom had Chipotle catered.  That was great, albeit a bit more messy, as we had a lot of starchy foods in the morning.  And yes, we ate it all!

At my husband’s parents’, they had breakfast/brunch catered from a local restaurant, so they had trays of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, etc. but because they didn’t have to meet as early as the girls did for me, they only had one big meal.  They also had a further drive to the church and my husband told me a few of them stopped through a drive thru on the way.

 Seriously, thank you for thinking of this. I have been Bridesmaid or Best Man many times where our day was completely scheduled and the bride did not give us time to eat until the reception.

We didn’t have a wedding party, but my mom and sisters all got hair and makeup done with me.

Our hotel provided breakfast that am, and we just took snacks to the salon (meat, cheese, crackers, chips, etc).
