How to plan a last minute wedding

As a dietitian, I understand the stress and pressure that comes with planning a wedding, especially if it's a last-minute affair. But even with the short timeline, it's still important to prioritize your health and wellness.

In this blog post, I'll share some tips and strategies for how to plan a last-minute wedding without sacrificing your health and nutrition goals.

  1. Keep it simple When planning a last-minute wedding, it's easy to get overwhelmed by all the details and options available. However, keeping things simple can help alleviate stress and make the planning process more manageable. Instead of trying to plan an elaborate multi-course meal, opt for a simple yet delicious buffet-style meal with a variety of options for guests to choose from.

  2. Prioritize nutrition Just because you're planning a last-minute wedding doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your nutrition goals. In fact, it's more important than ever to prioritize nutrient-dense foods to help manage stress and keep your energy levels up. Focus on incorporating a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains into your menu.

  3. Consider hiring a caterer If you're short on time and don't have the energy to cook for a large group of people, consider hiring a caterer. A professional caterer can help take the stress off your plate and ensure that your guests are well-fed with healthy and delicious options.

  4. Plan ahead While planning a last-minute wedding doesn't leave much time for extensive meal planning, there are still some things you can do ahead of time to make the process easier. Consider prepping some healthy snacks and meals in advance, such as fruit and veggie platters, salads, and grilled chicken skewers. This can help take some of the pressure off and ensure that you have healthy options on hand.

  5. Don't forget hydration Staying hydrated is key for managing stress and ensuring that your body is functioning properly. Make sure to provide plenty of water and other hydrating beverages like herbal tea and sparkling water for your guests to enjoy.

In summary, planning a last-minute wedding can be stressful, but it's still important to prioritize your health and nutrition goals. By keeping things simple, prioritizing nutrition, considering hiring a caterer, planning ahead, and staying hydrated, you can have a healthy and happy wedding day.
