I must have at least 20 minutes alone with my SO after the ceremony just to… soak it all in. 🙂

Get married. Seriously. That’s the whole purpose for me. I need to remind myself of that.

I’ve already accepted that face that we’re not going to eat — we’ll be spending that time going table to table and saying hi to our guests. 🙂 We’re going to have the caterers wrap up 2 extra meals for us so we can take back to the hotel room for a midnight snack. A friend suggested we do this, SMART!

The one thing I MUST do is SIT DOWN and relax before the reception starts. Even if it’s only for 5 minutes, I will need some “me” time.

I am eating come rain, hell or high water.  When I’m hungry, I’m not very nice to be around.

spend time with my guy….seems like this is a no-brainer, but i think i’ll actually have to make a point of doing it with all the hullaballoo.

If I had to pick one thing that was the most important thing Darling Husband and I did at the wedding it was hands-down going to all the tables and greeting all of our guests individually. I understand some weddings are too big to do this effectively, but honestly it goes a really long way for the people who spent so much time, money and vacation days to attend your event.

I always get disappointed when I go to a wedding and the bride and groom don’t make any attempt to talk to me. To this day, I still have never met my cousins husband even after attending the wedding and that really rubs me the wrong way.

And yes, eating all the food is important, but you will have so many wonderful meals together as a married couple I just don’t think it’s as much of a valuable use of your time.

I am 100% going to eat! I am like @EleanorRigby:, if I don’t eat I get mean. Fiance will be pushing people away so I can eat :).

I’m still officially a “waiting” Bee, but when the time does come, I have to spend quality time with my mom and dad at the wedding. Either sharing a fun dance with them on the dance floor or find time to chat off to the side. My parents are going to help with some (not all) of the wedding financially and planning wise. I want to give them just as much attention if not more, during the reception as I would my friends. I would hate to see my mom standing and watching me from afar wishing she could squeeze in a hello or a hug.

@moderndaisy: We’re having around 200 guests and we’ll still be going to table to table. I totally agree with you, and that is why we will sacrifice eating during the reception. We’ll eat later! 🙂

Do the electric slide to Cameo’s “Candy” like in the movie “The Best Man”.  I have actually assigned one of my friends to facilitate this cause it’s THAT serious for me.  If it doesn’t happen I will be sour.

Eat is a big one for me. I’m not a big drinker but plan on having one or two on my wedding day!

Alcohol + low tolerance + empty belly = disaster.

Must eat!
