August 2012 Weddings

Day of lunch question...

Every article I read says to make sure you eat lunch on the big day (seems obvious, but I'm sure in the rush I would forget it...) So I was looking into ordering a party sub platter from Firehouse subs for myself the groom and the bridal party. Here in lies the 2 questions...

1. Would subs be a bad choice and make us feel bloated? Is there a better option that anyone else has thought of? I want to make sure the bridal party eats too... and they will be getting ready with us at the hotel...

2. Do I feed the videographer, photographers, and make-up/hair people as well?

    We are going to get a platter of subs delivered to the hotel on our wedding day.  I was just a bridesmaid in a wedding last weekend.  We did Subway for lunch and it didn't make me feel bloated or full.  

    I would check your contracts with vendors.  Some put in there that you are required to provide a meal.  If that isn't in there, I guess it would be a nice gesture, but I don't think it is required.
  • I was thinking about this today also. I thought subs would be fine but will probably have a fruit and veggie tray there too. I'll probably feed the hair and makeup gals since they'll be there for several hours but not the photog/vidog because they won't be here until after lunchtime. If anyone has a better idea though I'd be glad to here other suggestions too.

    1. Does Firehouse usually make you feel bloated? You can always pack some antigas meds to counter the bloated feeling. I'd also plan for a fruit/veggie tray. Personally, when I'm a ball of nerves, I don't want to eat a big sandwich. I'm more likely to munch on fruits/veggies. 2. If it's in your budget, definitely nice for hair/make up to get lunch, but as they are only there for a few hours, not sure if it's necessary. Your photogs, however, are working longer and should get some grub. My photog has a "lunch break" scheduled in our contract. He'll be there from 3 until 11 though, so lunch won't be an issue for us.

  • if subs normally make you feel bloated i wouldn't order htem. But the guys probably want them.
    we are leaving at 2 pm, so I am probably going to do more breakfast stuff.
    Bagels, some pastry, lemonades and waters, champagne, a fruit and veggie tray

  • For my aunt's wedding, someone picked up Panera for us - they got us soup and salad options as well as some bagels and baguettes that could easily keep for later.
  • We're doing a subway platter for lunch.  Didn't really think about the bloat, but maybe I should pack myself some protein bars.  I tend to graze when I'm stressed!
