Quick & Easy Wedding Day Snacks

As my wedding day got close back in 2010, I was given lots of advice, but none more important than this: remember to eat! You’d think it’d be second-nature. You know, because it’s something we do everyday normally? However, it’s easy to get caught up in the stress and excitement of your wedding and forget to do it…which can reek havoc on your big day. The last thing you want is to pass out in the midst of the festivities because your stomach is empty!

However, eating the right foods is key too. Don’t choose anything greasy or generally heavy, as you never know how it’ll sit in your stomach, and it’s best to stick to things you’ve eaten before; your wedding day is not the time to try out that new Thai place! Also be sure to avoid things that could stain your dress or mess up your makeup.

Here are a couple of my favorite quick and easy wedding day snack options:

  • Veggies (with dip if you’re confident you can keep it off your dress)
  • Fresh Fruit (also potentially with dip)
  • Yogurt
  • Granola Bars
  • Cheese and Crackers
  • Nuts
  • Mini Sandwiches

Delegate one of your bridesmaids or family members to set up a snack bar wherever you’ll be getting ready to encourage everyone involved to snack through this busy and exciting day — after all, mimosas are unfortunately not filling enough alone ;) — and make sure your hubby-to-be knows to do the same.

Choosing items like those listed above that are both filling and light will keep that pep in your step on the most important day of your life!
