I’m thinking eggs, fruit, and maybe a mimosa!

I would recommend an egg-white omelet (with some sort of protein – ham, chicken, salmon) with some vegetables – maybe zucchini and mushrooms, and a bit of good cheese. 

Also, a good active-bacteria low-sugar yogurt (greek is awesome!), and DEFINITELY some fruit – maybe some strawberries.  they’ll be in season in august!

Basically, I’d cut out anything that would leave me too full (egg yolk and bread), and anything that would make me gassy (onions, garlic, and bell peppers always do that to me )

go for health!  You’ll feel more confident if you eat right!

oh, and obviously – mimosas too 🙂

I will probably have a "Hawaiian" omelet (egg whites, pineapple, ham, laughing cow lite cheese), from the Hungry Girl book!

I ate some yogurt, half a bagel and a latte on the morning of my wedding.  I normally don’t eat bagels, but my stomach was a little rumbly, so I wanted something to settle it a little.  I also ate a small lunch, half a roast beef sandwich and an apple.  Our wedding didn’t start until 6 PM, so I had eat something.  I’m glad that I did it, although I wasn’t sure I wanted to eat.

This is a great thread!

I know I need to eat something cause I get wobbly when I dont eat, and with the stress and anxiety and nervousness of the wedding, I may faint…puke or poop or all 3 at once!

scary!

I’m actually really concerned about this – it takes me a REALLY long time to eat, especially in the morning, and my wedding is at 11:30am.  So I think I’m going to get a very large coffee, put real milk and sugar in it, and sip on that while getting my hair done… if I eat too much in the morning, it can make me feel sick and / or throw up later in the day, and I would like to avoid that AT ALL COSTS for my wedding!!

So I was just reading an old issue of Modern Bride (June/July 2007) and there was actually a whole section on this! Here’s what it said:

"Q. What should I eat before my wedding so that I’m not bloated? "

"A. Your best bets are lean protein, fresh fruit with high water content (melon, berries) and a limited number of bread products. The main goal is to avoid salt: For every thousand milligrams you consume–about the amount in a tablespoon of soy sauce–you’ll hold one pount of water weight. . . Three days pre-wedding, cut out high-sodium foods such as soup, olives, pickles, hearts of palm, feta and blue cheese, and tomato sauce. Also avoid certain vegetables, like broccoli and cabbage, which are hard to digest and can give you a distended lower abdomen. (Better choices for light snacking are celery, grape tomatoes, string beans and snow peas.) Finally, consume small portions frequently (200-calorie snacksand 400-calorie meals every three to four hours) to aid digestion and help you look and feel slim."

We had mimosas and little sandwiches.  Mother-In-Law kept harassing us to eat all morning!

Our wedding was at 3:30pm; it was a destination wedding so we were in a hotel (he and I stayed together in the hotel the night before).  I went for a run in the morning and on my way back to the hotel I picked us up some coffee and yogurt and multigrain bread, which we nibbled at in the hotel room for breakfast.  After my fiance left to get ready with the guys, my bridesmaids showed up with some salad, cheese, and fresh bread.  We scarfed down bites of that as sort of a late lunch after getting ready and before it was time to leave for the ceremony.  And I alternated drinking both water and champagne.  I was really paranoid about forgetting to eat and getting dizzy for the ceremony, but I was too nervous and busy to eat a full meal, so having things to nibble on worked out well.

Ehhh another thing to become anal about! Bacon is my weakness. For sure I won’t eat anything strong smelling … so my breath is doesn’t have an odor all day.

We had finger sandwiches, a fruit platter, mini muffins and a lot of bottled water on hand. One thing I would really recommend is packing a cooler for your bridal party with water, some soda, string cheese (or some form of protein that is not messy!) and perhaps some extra finger sandwiches. Our bridal party scarfed down the snacks in the limo ride after the ceremony because they still have a few hours before the cocktail hour at the reception.

I eat the same thing EVERY morning so why change on my special day!

I will probably have my regular which is a whole wheat weight watchers bagel with peanut butter
