Someone on my local knot board suggested getting an edible arrangement.  They’re expensive!  But I like that people can snack a bit when they are hungry.  Panera maybe?

We got a bunch of 100 calorie bagels and low fat cream cheese and lox.  We also had fruit and yogurt.  Since mine was a morning wedding, we set up a little buffet for the bridesmaids.

I will be having my chocolate protein smoothie and plan on making fruit smoothies for all my gals!  My girls always leave weighing 5 pounds less after visiting me! Gotta have some protein to keep the blood sugar level.

So funny I was just talking to my mom about this! Part of me wants to eat pancakes or donuts something real bad for you ’cause the dieting will be over by then, but then I know I wont wanna feel all bloated from the rich food. Plus we are having mini sandwhiches, fruit and cheese at the venue while we are getting ready… so here are my thoughts right now:

A) oatmeal with walnuts, cinnamon and fresh fruit (kinda filling but ya don’t have to eat a huge bowl and it keeps my energy up thoughout the day!)

B) egg white omelette and some canadian bacon

I’m guessing that I’ll be so excited that I won’t be that hungry and will end up just eating a bowl of cereal or something. I’m just afraid of feeling too full from a heavy breakfast!

My fsil who  just got married 3 weeks ago apple wedges and grapes, and crackers and lunchmeat and cheese slices.  It was perfect because the protein really helped give us a boost and was fast and easy while we were running around and getting ready.

ha – wow! i shoved a panera bagel smothered in cream cheese in my mouth while dancing around singing janet jackson songs to my girls while they got their hair and makeup done – best decision ever!!

as some other posters have mentioned previously in this thread – the calorie counting is pretty much fruitless by that point in time!

For my friend’s wedding, her mother set up trays of fresh fruit, mini-muffins and pastries with coffee and OJ for us. It was the perfect breakfast because it wasn’t too heavy but enough to keep us satisfied until the dinner.

My bridesmaids picked up bagels and mimosas for breakfast.

Protien was key for me! I get shaky when my blood sugar gets too low, so I wanted to have something to hold me over while at the ceremony! I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for myself before I left. I also had fruit, yogurt and bagels for my girls! Oh and of course mimosas!

That’s a great question bruschetta!  I think I’m actually taking my girls out to breakfast since they are arriving all at different times ahead of the wedding and won’t be time for a bridesmaids’ lunch/tea.  The wedding isn’t until 6:30pm so we have time.  I’m thinking something healthish too though-probably pastries are a bad idea when trying to look svelte in the wedding dress!  I’m thinking fruit/oatmeal/cereals/eggs?

We had coffee, fruit, muffins, and yogurt at the salon.  Then, we got done with the salon early, so my SIL suggested we go eat lunch.  I didn’t think I was hungry, but I scarfed that black bean burger!  And at the reception I ate all of my meal and a piece of cake!  I think the important thing is just that you eat, and not necessarily what you eat, so you don’t pass out or something.  My SIL also bought me a box of granola bars…  I had a couple of those too.  ๐Ÿ™‚

First of all, I will do what my friend just did on her wedding day and try to sleep in ๐Ÿ™‚ I honestly dont’ think I’ll eat breakfast and will prob have to force myself to eat something during the day…when I get nervous eating is the last thing I want to do

But while all the girls are getting ready we will have sandwiches & fruit, and just a little champagne to take the edge off ๐Ÿ™‚
