6 Healthy Celebrity Weddings
A look at what stars like Fred Savage and Reese Witherspoon served — and tips for planning your own healthy menu
It’s the one day in your life where you want to look your best. You’ve spent months of planning the reception, toiling over flower choices and music selections — and probably the same amount of time getting into tip-top shape so you can wow your significant other and all your guests. So why throw all that hard work down the drain by indulging in a menu of rich, calorically-dense foods on your wedding day?
We’re not talking about getting rid of cocktails — former The Wonder Years star Fred Savage got the party started just before the ceremony with flutes of bubbly, in fact — but making smart decisions when planning your menu. Reese Witherspoon maximized flavor while minimizing the caloric damage by opting for a menu of flavorful Mediterranean-inspired dishes for her recent wedding to Jim Toth. Don’t want to have to endure a long, multi-course meal that is sure to weigh you down on the dance floor? Take cue from actress Jaime King who instead opted for a healthy buffet featuring a variety of organic, hearty, and healthy dishes. And don’t fall victim to classic cocktail hour favorites (and diet derailers) like cheese-stuffed risotto balls or coconut-crusted shrimp — instead, do as Dixie Chick Martie Maguire did and serve sushi.
