Wedding Wednesday ~ Day to Day with SAS
So we all know that we get to eat on your wedding day. The countless hours you are putting into choosing the perfect menu to reflect your style and taste that all your guests will be oohing and awing over long after the wedding night.
But did you eat?
Did you (or your fabulous planner) set aside time during the day and the evening for you to actually eat? This is an area all too often that is forgotten or even hard at times to convey the importance of. I promise you no matter when your ceremony is you will be STARVING by dinner time ... like wanna chew off your right pinkie toe staving... not to mention the possibility of becoming "hangry" if you don't eat a healthy brunch during the day AND set aside time during your evening to sit with your spouse and actually eat the food you picked for your guests to enjoy.
Here is a list of comments I have heard over and over again …
“Yes, we will have a friend drop by with some snacks in the afternoon” (Skinny Popcorn, Doritos & Snapple show up)
“We are eating breakfast before we get hair and makeup done” (Ummm that’s at 9am what are you going to do the rest of the day?)
“The guys are just going to grab a bite at some point” (Before or after Tuxedos?)
“I don’t want to eat too much, I need to fit into my dress” (Girl that dress is going to fit whether or not you ate a fruit cup and chicken salad sandwich)
“Ok, we will send someone out to get food” (party tray of hot wings with dipping sauce shows up, can you say messy!)
“Do Mimosas Count?” (Yes, sort of…)
“Oh, I forgot I would need to eat during the day”
This day above all days we need to be looking and feeling our best. Feeling our best includes not wanting to pass out from low blood sugar. What we need is small, easy to eat, non-messy foods throughout the day.
