We ended up being so busy we forgot lunch, but the reception was at 3, so we weren’t too bad off. 

I had a milkshake for breakfast right after the first look. (I got tied up at the salon and didn’t get breakfast)

My mom bought croissants, meat, and chips for the bridal party lunch at home. I could barely eat because my nerves got to me at that point. It definitely helped because my bridesmaids didn’t eat until we got to the cocktail hour around 5p.m. after a 2p.m. ceremony and pictures.

My mom brought us a tray of sandwiches from Subway. I had like half of a veggie one because I was too excited to be hungry lol. All of my BMs and my hair/makeup lady loved it!

I forgot to plan it, so my mom brought me some cheese and crackers, nuts, fruit, and chocolate from home while I was getting my hair done. Life saver!!

My dad went to Panera and got catering trays for us and brought them to the hotel where we were getting ready.  We had sandwiches and salads.

a family friend had a bunch of fresh fruit and bagels waiting for us in the bridal suite. It was perfect. Non of us felt super hungry and didnt want to eat a heavy meal so the fruit and bread really held us over until dinner.

We ordered Jimmy Johns.  Really, I would just recommend anything you can get delivered (or that is close enough that your dad or someone will be willing to go pick it up).  The gluten intolerance makes it tricky, since so many salad dressings even have hidden gluten.  Another option would be to find out if your hotel room has a microwave, then you could have a frozen entree (I know Trader Joes has some gluten free ones).

My sister got Subway and I ate something. I don’t even really remember.
