A wedding takes a great deal of planning and organizing. Brides must find and book a reception hall, caterers, photographers, entertainment and a cake maker, as well as choosing bridal party outfits and flowers. When the day of the wedding arrives, it can be a stressful but exciting time. For weddings that take place in the afternoon or evening, it is important for the bride to remember to organize lunch for herself and the bridal party.
Ordering sandwiches from a local delicatessen or bakery is a good way to make sure the bridal party remembers to eat lunch without having to prepare anything. If you decide to order sandwiches, make sure there is a selection that caters to your bridal party’s likes and dislikes. If you have any vegetarians in your bridal party, make sure you order veggie sandwiches and ask the catering company to deliver them in a separate box.
Since the wedding day is exciting and nerve-wracking, you might not want to eat a large or heavy lunch. Providing the bridal party with fresh fruit and vegetable trays is a great way to snack and pack in nutrients without feeling full or bloated. Simple dips such as onion or ranch work for most vegetables. If you want a little something extra, prepare a cheese tray and some crackers or fresh bread for extra energy.
If you’re planning a mid-afternoon wedding, consider providing your wedding party with a cooked brunch around 11 a.m. or mid day. If you’re staying in a hotel, you can arrange this with the front desk in advance. Alternatively, look around for caterers that offer such a service. Bacon, sausage, eggs, pancakes and waffles are all good ideas to give you and your bridal party energy and prevent you from becoming sick later on.
