Wedding Brunch: A Growing Trend

Wedding Catering Tips

Add a unique flair to your wedding ceremony by hosting a brunch reception instead of a more traditional dinner reception. With a morning wedding and brunch reception, you can enjoy a wider range of fantastic foods and have a more relaxed, casual celebration. (Alternatively, you can throw a brunch the day after the dinner reception to say “thanks again” to friends and relatives who’ve traveled from out of town and to keep the good vibes going.)

Consider these tips to plan an ideal wedding brunch that will be remembered fondly for years:

  • Offer luscious indulgences. An event catering specialist can use her expertise to create a menu laden with brunch classics like french toast casserole, omelettes, or frittatas. Handheld Catering features a variety of frittata choices, including bacon and cheddar cheese with fresh herbs and potato, caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, and fresh herbs.
  • Have fun with drinks. Sipping spirits can spark exciting conversations and encourage people to be more social and celebratory. Consider setting up a mimosa bar or offering specialty teas or exotic juices to make your brunch reception sparkle. Serving brunch drinks at your wedding reception is a good way to break away from tradition and try something new… but make sure you also have yummy refreshments for underage partygoers.
  • Enjoy the savings. Compared to a dinner reception, hosting a brunch can be a much more cost effective way to celebrate your wedding. Some venues offer reduced reception fees for early weddings. Liquor and food costs should also be much lower than they would be for an evening reception.
  • Take advantage of the hour… and the sunlight. With a traditional brunch scheduled between 10 am and 2 pm, you have the opportunity to serve a variety of foods, from breakfast favorites to lunch staples. You can also schedule fun daytime activities to complement the meal. A game of croquet, anyone?
