8 Perfect Snacks for the Bridal Suite

By Published On: March 25, 2024

When it comes to feeding your bridal party the morning of your wedding, you want to keep them energized, nourished, and refreshed without feeling bogged down by heavy portions and unhealthy choices.

Your bridal party will be by your side during your celebration, from start to finish. They will be engaged in every ounce of preparing for the day’s events, so making sure they’re well fed means they’ll maintain the necessary energy for supporting you when and where you need it. They’re there for you on your big day, so ensuring your utmost care for their wellbeing should be your top priority.

Bridal suite snacks are an absolute must. Your bridal suite will become both yours and your bridal party’s retreat from the buzz of event setup and arriving guests. You’ll be spending much of your day together getting ready in your suite for photographs, the ceremony, and the reception, so plan ahead to make it comfortable and ensure it has everything you might want or need. When it comes to snacks, we’ve got you covered. Here are 8 perfect and nutritious snack ideas for your bridal suite.

Charcuterie

Charcuterie is a generous display of fruit, nuts, cheeses, spreads, and sometimes even cured meats. This is the perfect combination of healthy fats, proteins, and natural sugars to energize and sustain your bridal party throughout a busy and dynamic day. Charcuterie is versatile and customizable to your preferred tastes and flavor palates. You can set this up as a large spread for people to browse throughout the day, or you can try charcuterie snack cones as individually portioned cups for your bridal party to grab and go.

Fresh Fruit

Fruit is so refreshing and hydrating, especially when you’re running around and working hard on a long, important day. It replenishes the body’s natural sugars, which serves to energize and revitalize the brain while fueling you for the day ahead. Fruit is filling but light, so it doesn’t leave you feeling lethargic. A good fresh fruit spread can also be served alongside Greek yogurt and granola for an extra boost of protein and carbohydrates.

Avocado Toast

Avocado toast is a modern classic. A delicious, multigrain bread or bagel is filling and energizing, and avocado is full of healthy fats and fiber. On its own, this is a delicious and healthy snack option for your bridal party. Spice it up a bit by adding tomato, topping it with your favorite seasoning and drizzling it with some balsamic reduction. If you’re looking for a breakfast option, offer a soft-boiled or over-medium egg with your avocado toast for an extra protein boost.

Granola Bars

Granola bars are easy, quick and nutritious energy boosting snacks. You can find plenty of pre-packaged varieties for grab-and-go options, or ask your caterer if this is something they’re comfortable with creating for you. Scratch-made granola bars are even healthier than pre-packaged options since they don’t require preservatives to maintain freshness.

Mini Sandwiches

A mini sandwich spread is a great way to offer a variety of choices for your bridal party. Sandwiches are easy to make in a handful of delicious options, so they can accommodate a number of dietary restrictions and palate preferences. Sandwiches also usually include breads, meats, cheeses and vegetables, so they include a quality combination of carbs, protein, fats, fiber and essential vitamins to fuel your bridal party throughout a long day.

Crostini

Crostini are adorable and delicious snack options for your bridal suite. Crostini are toasted bread slices paired with a number of topping options. Caprese crostini is a classic option that includes mozzarella, basil, tomato and balsamic. This is something you can be creative with, though! Perhaps you want to offer a handful of spreads like fruit and pepper jelly, hummus, roasted garlic, or burrata, and topping choices like tomatoes, fruits, cheeses, and herbs. The possibilities are endless and the potential combinations are abundant.

Salad Skewers

Salad skewers are unique, fun and refreshing. Like we mentioned previously, caprese is a classic option and so versatile in its serving potential. Another great choice is watermelon and feta, or red onion, cucumber and tomato. These are served on individual skewers for your bridal party to grab and graze on. You can offer dressings to dip on the side or drizzle over top. Salad skewers are revitalizing and light, similar to fresh fruit.

Trail Mix

Trail mix is simple and energizing. The versatility in trail mix also cannot be understated. You can stick to the classic combination of raisins, peanuts and chocolate, or add in other nuts, seeds, and fruits for additional flavor profiles and nutritional benefits. Plain dried fruits are a great source of natural sugars, nuts are packed with healthy fats, vitamins and protein, seeds may provide additional sources of fiber and nutrients, and chocolate satisfies a sweet-tooth.  You can easily provide a large jar of trail mix with a scoop for serving and small paper bags for carrying, or you can use pre-packaged individual portion sizes for ease-of-mind.
