It may not be on your wedding to-do checklist yet, but fueling up the morning of your big day is absolutely crucial (they don't call breakfast the most important meal of the day for fun). Without feeding your ladies and yourself, you'll hardly be able to keep up your energy until "Last Dance," so reach out to these delivery spots to get the grub that will keep you from getting h-angry.
D's Soul Full Cafe
The Hoboken, New Jersey cafe — known for its live music played by local artists — also boasts a large menu of breakfast bites that can be delivered right to your doorstep. Some of the best offerings at the restaurant are its breakfast burritos, which range from "The Mexicano" — a dish that includes refried beans and homemade salsa — to "The Hangover Cure," a mix of hashbrowns, eggs and bacon that may help you recover if you overindulged at the rehearsal dinner the night before. Have a bridesmaid who is a big fan of the King? Then make sure to order her "The Elvis Press-ley," a breakfast sandwich that has peanut butter, banana and bacon.
Pizza for breakfast isn't just for coeds. You've been avoiding carbs for months as part of your slim-down plan, and there's no better morning to break your diet. Benny Tudino's is well-known for its massive portions of classic, cheesy pizza (make sure to peep the photos of newborns laying next to pizza slices as a comparison if you ever make it into their restaurant. Yes, the slices are as big as a baby!). Call in an order for several pies for your girls, and reminisce about all those late night in college that ended with a slice.
What's a party without champagne? Fortunately, thanks to Minibar's delivery service, you'll never have to find out. Log on to the startup's website or download its app, and the company will have a local wine or liquor store get your order to you. Within 30 to 90 minutes, you'll have all the bubbly you need to make sure the mimosas are flowing while you get your hair and makeup done.
Carlstadt Bagels and Deli
Bagels are a breakfast staple for many reasons — they're inexpensive, they're easy and in Jersey, and of course — they're crazy good. In the vein of the many classic delis throughout the Garden State, no-frills Carlstadt Bagels offers staples like breakfast sandwiches and light and fluffy bagels at super affordable prices. The deli also has practically every type of cream cheese and bagel topping you can think of — no need to limit your bridal party to a boring breakfast!
Noches de Colombia
The restaurant, which has a number of locations throughout North Jersey, is known for its massive portions of traditional Colombian food. For a morning meal, look no further than their pandebono, the restaurant's signature cheesy sweet bread, along with a hot chocolate or cafe con leche. Noches' empanadas filled with guava and cheese are the perfect combination of sweet and salty to kick start your day without leaving you overly full. Not feeling quite that hungry? Indulge in one of the restaurants many batidos — shakes made from fresh fruit ranging from blackberry to mango to strawberry.
Dulce de Leche Bakery
If you're looking to fill your sweet tooth while gearing up for the day, then Dulce de Leche has you covered. The Argentinian bakery offers a phenomenal catering menu of traditional foods from the South American country, including media lunas — a flaky croissant that has a sweet glaze, often used to make sandwiches. Make sure to call ahead for an order — a 30 percent deposit is required when it is placed — and fuel up on empanadas filled with chicken, beef or cheese, or an Argentine-style quiche.
