The Most Important Meal of the Day - The Breakast/Brunch Wedding Reception

I don't understand people who do not eat breakfast. If I do not eat within 15 minutes of waking up, I am mean, and sad, and awful! I also get a little sad on Sundays, which must be leftover from my days of M-F office work. Those two personal traits combined lend some insight into my delight this weekend as my husband and I mixed up our usual Sunday routine to spend the day at a friend's wedding in Pennsylvania.

If good friends and the joy of marriage was not enough to combat my Sunday blues, it was also a BRUNCH reception! With the wedding ceremony at 11:00 am, I'd had my fingers crossed from the moment we received the invitation that we would be feasting on some eggs and breakfast carbs and the reception. Wish granted.

Brunch is one of those meals that feels like a special occasion no matter when you have it! Let’s be honest, it’s generally a luxury that we reserve for weekends, holidays, vacation and celebrations. These associations make it a natural fit for your wedding. And Butler-passed Bloody Marys and Mimosa’s will create the feeling of ease for your guests that only daytime drinking can do!

If the appeal of breakfast food alone is not enough to push you toward a brunch wedding, consider the savings. Many reception venues require a lower spending minimum for events held early enough in the day to allow them to turn the room over for an evening wedding, even during peak wedding season, even on Saturdays.

And if THAT is not appealing enough - what about a donut wedding cake?
