Brunches are an up-and-coming trend for weddings. Many couples want to share their favorite comfort food with their guests. Perhaps the bride and groom are morning people, or maybe they’re just looking for a unique twist on a wedding. In any case, there are many great reasons to have a wedding brunch.

  1. Venue costs may be lower. Many choice venues will offer a discounted rate for weddings that take place in the morning. You may even be able to keep your venue until the early afternoon, leaving you ample time to spend with your guests.
  2. Food is less expensive. Breakfast is an easier and more cost effective alternative to serving your guests a full dinner. You could go with a make-your-own omelet or pancake bar, or a buffet with multiple breakfast options. You may even consider a cocktail brunch where your friends and family enjoy breakfast hors d’oeuvres. Guests may also appreciate lighter alternatives in the morning like fresh fruit or a yogurt and granola station.
  3. No need for an open bar. You may still want to serve breakfast cocktails like mimosas, Bellini’s or champagne; you can also focus on specialty morning drinks like cafe au lait or English breakfast tea. Fresh juices and hot chocolate are also great morning drink alternatives.
  4. No need for a band. You may want to consider other music alternatives like a string quartet, but a morning wedding typically doesn’t include the DJ and dancing.
  5. More mellow and low key. Guests don’t expect to be drinking a lot, dancing and partying for hours. A brunch is a nice way to spend quality time with family and friends especially if your wedding consists of a smaller group.


A brunch is still a festive way to celebrate your nuptials even with a more low-key atmosphere. Tailor your brunch to the season. Think spring or summer garden party, or winter brunch in the lodge by the fireplace. Guests will enjoy celebrating your big day with you in an intimate and cozy setting.


With a morning wedding and a brunch reception, you can create the type of event that suits your style and personality without breaking the bank.
