My BM’s and a couple other girlfriends all had an Air BnB house about ten minutes from my house, when I got there in the morning they had scrambled eggs, cinnamon rolls, and mimosas.  We weren’t rushed to get ready… just spent the morning relaxing and catching up.  Until we realized we needed to rush to get ready lol.  While we were doing hair and makeup one of the girls staying at the house who wasn’t in the bridal party and therefore not rushing made us a big plate of meat and cheese and pretzels.  She saved us!  Then at our dinner we had chips, salsa, and guacamole.  I made it a goal to eat a chip and some dip at each table I visited as I was saying hi to everyone.  Then we had enichlladas, green salad, rice, and beans for dinner.  And I had one carrot cake cupcake and half of a lemon blueberry.  I pretty much die if I’m hungry, so I made sure to eat all day…

 I went for a run first thing in the morning, then had breakfast. I don’t quite remember what I had, I think coffee, toast with butter, and a hardboiled egg, maybe some fruit. While getting ready, I had 1 mimosa and half a vegetarian panini. The ceremony was at 3:30. I had appetizers during cocktail hour and dinner at the reception.

I just had a regular breakfast- cold cereal or something.

For lunch, my mom a had bunch of quick/easy stuff like fruits, veggies, crackers, etc. That worked out well because my hair appointment went way over time, so I was able to just really quickly eat some of the snack food my mom had for lunch to get back on schedule for the day.

Myself and Maid/Matron of Honor went out to breakfast in the morning, got a really good juiced thing. and I think I ate a light breakfast (it’s hard to eat with nerves/excitement!) I believe it was an omelet? 

Then we bought snacks for the room, and champange. Snacks were chips and salsa, some cholcolates, trail mix, nuts. We didnt get dressed until at the venue, I would have never eaten these things with my dress on lol.

When I get anxious it is SUPER hard for me to eat and I have no appetite. I force fed myself half of a bagel in the morning with some pepto-bismal and a mimosa 😉 For lunch I had like 1/4 of a plain subway sandwhich and some water. And my reception I was back to eating a normal amount. LOL

mrsfox :  try to eat as much as you can, and also try to eat slow release foods that will keep you full for longer. I need to eat frequently otherwise I get annoyed at best, sick at worst, and I found my huge breakfast filled me up. It was hard to eat as a) I don’t usually have breakfast and b) I was really nervous (which limits my appetite) but I’m glad I ate it as I then felt fine, and didn’t get too drunk, either

mrsfox :  we had Newks sandwich boxes catered in for the bridal party/parents/coordinator/photographers. So sandwich, chips, fruit, pickle, brownie/cookie. We also had a bunch of different drinks. Prior to that the guys had been drinking scotch and we were upstairs drinking mimosas for a bit. 

I think I ate more on my wedding day, all day, than I had the whole week leading up to it because it was just finally there and I could relax!

mrsfox :  Eggs and bacon in the morning. Potato cooked mid morning. Veggies and fruit and coffee. Our day of coordinator got us some of our appetizers. I ate small and often because I have stomach problems.

I ate breakfast at the hotel I stayed in the night before, had a rice bowl when I was getting ready and that tied me over until dinner.
