Our wedding will be at a B&B, and our families and wedding party will be staying there the night before and getting ready the day of. Brunch is included, so we’ll all have a wonderful breakfast together.
I’m trying to come up with some light lunch ideas that could be purchased ahead of time or delivered the day of the wedding. Something not messy and easy to eat, without resorting to pizza.
All ideas appreciated!

You could do some kind of deli platter. Everyone can make something they like, and it’s not too messy.

We got a couple of party subs from Subway!

I ordered Panera for my girls. My dad went and picked it up since he didnt take as much time to get ready as the ladies. We stayed at a hotel too. My parents placed the order the day before for a “call ahead” and it was a part pack. WIth 1/2 sandwhiched, salad and cookies. It was great!

@Opus: sandwich trays? salads from the deli (i.e. egg salad/chicken salad/potato salad), chips, fruit tray.
you could even do subway catering with their 6 feet subs, or order subs from a local pizza place for everyone to share.

The little sandwich pinwheels from Costco are very good. You just defrost them and they come in a nice variety.

I created my own party platter with various deli meats, a couple types of cheese, and Kings Hawaiian Rolls. I also picked up some pretzels and veggie sticks too. I tried to stay away from anything that would be messy or give someone an upset stomach.

We got ready at a hotel, so we ordered sandwiches from a local deli and bought bottled water. Unfortunately, barely anyone ate and the sandwiches got tossed at the end of the night (as they were left out all day, non refrigerated during the wedding). We left the bottled water for the housekeeping staff.

My mom was so wonderful and made a whole ton of food for us! We had scones with butter, cut fruit, veggie platter, and a meat/egg casserole. She also made some orangey punch that was delicious.
Whatever you do EAT on your wedding day!!! I almost passed out doing our first look/family photos because I hadn’t eaten much. You’ll be nervous and the idea of eating may be totally repulsive, but it’s necessary. Learn from my fail. 🙂

Definitely fruits and veggies. You need to eat, but after a big eggs, bacon, toast kind of brunch you might want a light lunch. Also yogurt.
Doing a cheese and meats platter with crackers would probably work too. Really, light snacks are probaly all you need after a brunch with a large dinner coming that night.
