The post-wedding brunch. A fun and casual way to say your goodbyes and thank yous to your nearest and dearest.
Keep It Casual: Regardless of location, opt for a relaxed, casual drop-by-and-say-hi feel. Skip the formal plated meal and keep it light and fun. You’ll be able to relax, enjoy the morning, and hear from everyone about their favorite parts of the previous day.
Give Those Flowers Another Moment in the Spotlight: Have someone (like your wedding planner) move your reception arrangements to your brunch location. They are still going to be gorgeous, so let them serve double duty and become pretty decorations for the morning after.
Spread the Word: Make sure everyone knows about this post-wedding event by adding an enclosure note to the invitation, as well as a reminder note in the guest welcome bags.
Hosting: The post-wedding brunch is usually hosted by the family of the bride of groom, but truly there are no set rules. Everyone will be family after the wedding, so this honor can go to anyone who wants to be involved as a part of your day.
The Menu: Going back to the keep-it-casual theme, go for a fun buffet or food station style setup, rather than a plated meal. When it comes to a food station, there are so many fun possibilities – waffle bar, omelet bar, donut bar, biscuit bar, shrimp and grits bar, mimosa or bloody mary bar. Have fun with it!
