25 Ideas To Plan A Perfect Brunch Wedding




Here are 25 ideas to plan a perfect brunch wedding; from Weddingomania




If a bride and groom are early birds, they may choose to have a morning wedding and brunch reception. Brunch weddings can be more cost effective and relaxed than evening celebrations, but they still require the same level of creative planning. Here’s your guide to throwing the perfect morning ceremony.

The Timing

Brunch receptions are typically scheduled between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., with the ceremony happening right before. Prefer walking down the aisle no earlier than 10 a.m., though, since not all guests will love the early morning wake-up call. To make sure everyone feels comfortable and welcome, set up a coffee cart, pastry trays, or other treats to ease guests into the morning.




The Venue

Brunch weddings are typically smaller and more casual than evening celebrations, so the bride and groom can be flexible with the venue. Popular locations include gardens, greenhouses, an outdoor patio at a restaurant, or your very own backyard. Something rustic and picnic-esque works well for an early afternoon party, which will make the event feel like a formal BBQ.

Attire

Morning wedding ceremonies and brunch receptions are inherently more casual. The bride might choose to rock a more relaxed gown, with a shorter length, minimal train, or more casual fabric. Men tend to wear lighter colored suits for daytime ceremonies as well.

Food And Drinks

At a brunch wedding, brides and grooms can get creative with the menu. Guests probably don’t want a hearty meal only hours after waking up, so instead serve a light buffet with a mix of different breakfast and lunch foods. Classic breakfast staples like bacon, smoked salmon, and scrambled eggs are always popular choices, but a brunch wedding opens itself up to fun items; consider having an omelette or waffle station, mini breakfast sandwiches, a cereal bar, or French toast dippers.

Since most guests will drink less at brunch receptions, a full open bar isn’t necessary (but it’s totally acceptable, if the couple wants one). Instead, a couple can serve typical brunch-style cocktails, like mimosas, Bloody Mary’s, screwdrivers, and sangria. Landman suggests having a Bloody Mary bar or a “bubble bar,” which offers different types of champagne with berries.

The Cake

Serve a breakfast-friendly dessert. Angel food cakes, fruit cakes, and naked cakes are cool options. More creative treats include donuts, a waffle or crepe cake, and a pastry tower.
