Hi friends! The post-wedding brunch is a fun and festive way to get your close friends and family together the morning after the wedding. It’s especially popular for destination weddings or weddings where you’ll have a lot of out-of-town guests. You and your guests will appreciate that extra time to spend with one another…and dish about the previous night’s festivities! If you’re considering a post-wedding brunch, here are 3 tips for success:
- Keep the food service informal. Many guests will be tired or might be on a time schedule to catch their flights. Hold an open-ended buffet brunch where guests can come and go as they please. Around 9:30 a.m. to noon, for instance, is a good time.
- Reuse décor. There’s no need to go overboard for décor at your brunch – you’ve likely spent enough money by now! If you can, see if you’re able to reuse some of the florals or other décor from your ceremony or reception.
- Dictate casual attire. Your guests just got gussied up for your wedding the night before, so don’t force them to get dressed to the nines less than 12 hours later. As for you and your new spouse, remember that there will still be cameras everywhere. You should be comfortable, but pulled together. Many brides like to keep the wedding theme going by dressing in all white. A fun, flirty dress or jumper will do the trick!
