Slowly replacing breakfast and lunch everywhere, brunch seems to be the coolest thing since sliced bread. Brunch translates exquisitely to dates, Instagram pictures, an excuse to start drinking early on Saturday or casual Sundays with your girlfriends. Come to think of it, we aren’t entirely sure why brunching hasn’t already been a phenomenon. Combining our favorite aspects of any meal; alcohol, bacon, champagne and carbs, we are certainly glad it is now a thing. And just in time for your wedding reception.
Timing is always everything, including when it comes to brunch. The ideal time for any brunch is between 11 AM to 2 PM. Waiting much longer than that your guests will either start getting hangry or would sacrificially ruin their meal by eating breakfast.
You might have your concerns steering towards such a trendy wedding reception. Don’t. What makes brunching such a hit, is it’s classic yet playful appeal. A brunch reception can be festive or formal and transitions into whatever theme, good or bad, you might pick. Brunching can also be a huge money saver (music to any brides’ ears)!
There are endless brunch options. Biscuit bars, donut cakes, waffles and never ending playful takes on dessert bars. Toast bars, mini benedicts and food stations (think omelet, crepes and scrambles), are always a delicious options, while catering to all food allergies guests might have.
But you cannot forget the crowd pleasing bloody Mary bar. Pick your poison; vodka, tequila, whiskey and whatever accoutrements one might prefer. We love to add some pizzazz with peppered bacon, shrimp and peppercinis.
Add in the mimosas and you have got yourself a successful reception brunch.
