6 ways to make sure you get to eat on your wedding day

Here’s one thing you might not know about weddings: Most couples never get to sit down and eat on their wedding day — even after they’ve spent hours (or months!) deciding on the menu. They’re too busy entertaining guests, making the rounds, or greeting friends and family members to really focus on eating. It’s not that they’re not starving — because usually, they are! — it’s that those moments post-cocktail hour are primetime for hugs and congratulations.

While it’s important to make sure you get quality time with your guests, it’s equally critical that you eat something. You don’t want to be four glasses of Champagne in before you take a bite of that juicy roast beef — your stomach and head will never forgive you.

So to find out how to make sure you get to eat on your wedding day, we talked to a couple of experts. Read on — and enjoy your wedding meal!
