Sometimes a girl's just got to eat! You know, like late night on her wedding night when she's literally dying of starvation since she barely touched her food because she was so busy talking at the reception. Yeah, story of every bride's life basically.

You say it won't happen to you now, but just wait until you're feigning for a double cheeseburger come midnight! Here's what real brides ordered to satisfy their late night wedding cravings.

Mussels & Frites
"We took a stroll downtown then went to the hotel restaurant and sipped on champagne and ate mussels and frites still in our wedding clothes. It was the second best part of the day!" — Ericka

A Slice of Pizza
"Last minute, we bought a table at the club for our after party, but I was so nauseous from drinking Moscow mules all night and not eating enough food that I ducked out with a couple of girlfriends and went to a late night college pizza spot down the block. Needless to say, everyone couldn't stop congratulating me (I was still wearing my dress) and asking me where my husband was, LOL!" — Megan

"Around 3AM my husband, along with his cousin and his cousin's fiancé, walked a half mile to McDonalds to get me a Junior Chicken Sandwich and a Double Bacon Cheeseburger while I took a nap. I ate it with relish then we had some pretty spectacular drunk sex and passed out." — Jenna

The Waffle House
"After the reception we were starving and the only thing open was the Waffle House. We called in an order and picked it up in our wedding attire. We took it back to the hotel and grubbed hard while opening up cards and gifts and reminiscing about the day." — Camille

Jimmy John's
"We got to the honeymoon suite close to 2AM, did the deed, and then ordered Jimmy John's because we were both ravenous! Oh, and we counted the money we got from the wedding as we ate too" — Danen

"We were both ridiculously hungry so we ripped into the leftover desserts and food our venue packed up for us. Then I passed out from champagne and exhaustion." — Gina

The Mini Bar
"We couldn't wait for room service so instead we just raided the mini bar in our hotel room, and of course, wound up spending a fortune. Oops! So worth it though!" — Mallory

"About 40 of us went to a dive bar and got pretty trashed post-wedding. So to offset the vodka, we all headed over to Denny's and wound up staying there until about 4:30 AM. Classy, I know! Ha." — Taylor

In-N-Out Burger
"We had our Uber driver take us through the drive through at In-N-Out, and we ordered a feast of burgers and fries for everyone to devour back at our hotel suite at the after party. Best late night wedding decision by far!" — Vanden
