The day you've been planning for months — years even — is finally here and while the thought of food may slip your stress-ridden mind, take a breather and satisfy your stomach for the big day ahead. Whether it's a juice cleanse to continue on your detox, or if you don't mind cheating that wedding day diet since you've made it this far already, these six spots bring Miami's best chefs, restaurants and cuisine to the table for pre-wedding fuel that's just as fine as you'd find around town.
The same group that's behind Verde at Pérez Art Museum Miami takes their catering on the road with its locally sourced Prandeó menu. The Latin term for breakfast and lunch, Prandeó serves up a mix of street food and farmer's market fare for a brunch that can be as health-conscious as you'd like, with superfood salads and gourmet sandwiches, as well as dark-chocolate dipped fruit and treats.
Michael's Genuine Food & Drink
If you can't take your guests to one of Miami's favorite brunch spots, bring the award-winning chef's cuisine to you with a lavish pre-wedding spread of Michael Schwartz's classics like salted caramel pop tarts, duck hash and pecan sticky buns. This sugar rush is sure to serve up the perfect buzz to get your guests going throughout the day.
You've been hitting SoulCycle and Pure Barre for months now and you've been surprisingly good about sticking to your pre-wedding diet (except for that slight binge during your bachelorette party), so no need to head over to the dark side just yet. Miami's top juice spot, Jugofresh, not only makes a slew of organic juices for a last-minute, morning-of cleanse, they also deliver healthy breakfast options that the entire party can get on board with, from raw oatmeal to chocolatey Brazil nut crumble.
After months of dealing with venues, guestlists and wedding planners, everything on your checklist has finally been crossed off. Before heading in to get wedding-ready for the aisle, take a seat and enjoy the moment in style with a sophisticated, sit-down meal catered by gourmet genius Barton G. Your guests will have trouble remembering which meal was better — the one before or after the ceremony.
Buns & Buns
If calories aren't your concern — your party has to fuel up, right? — the street food-inspired Buns & Buns can bring tastes from around the world right to your wedding day venue. The gastro version of a boulangerie pairs gourmet buns with flavors from Istanbul's Spice Market and Hong Kong's dim sum spots for fun takes on sandwiches that are far from the typical ham-and-cheese variety.
You're tying the knot in Miami, after all, so there's no more fitting cuisine for breakfast than Cuban, and the family-run South Beach staple, David's Café, can provide just the thing. Your party will love this spin on "southern" comfort food complete with all the classics, from cafecitos to Cuban sandwiches.
