Timing is everything – whether it’s for a job, an unplanned opportunity or even meeting the person you’re going to spend the rest of your life with. And timing plays a significant role in your wedding and how that magical day will unfold. A mid-morning ceremony followed by a classy brunch reception is one way to have a modest and uniquely styled event. In fact, the “marriage” of breakfast and lunch has become an increasingly popular trend for brides.
What are some perks of choosing a brunch reception? There’s less competition for venue space earlier in the day. Switching up the time also gives your out-of-town guests a chance to rest or see the town after the big event. You’ll want to end a little earlier if you choose Sunday over Saturday to give guests more time to make the trek back home.
A brunch-time reception also allows you to get creative with the menu and drinks, pairing the best from both sunrise and high noon tastes. You can dip your fried chicken in syrup with no judgment. You can keep an element of elegance with smoked salmon or smoked prime rib while still having fun with a doughnut or pastry “cocktail” bar. It’s the best of both worlds. Just make sure to have some sort of coffee drink to energize those who aren’t “morning people.”
