Brunch Instead of Dinner?

Posted by

I recently attended a fabulous brunch hosted by Marcey Brownstein Catering and it sparked a few ideas for a daytime wedding reception. I know we all love the glamour and decadence involved with designing a fabulous cocktail party and seated dinner for a wedding celebration, but why not consider a chic, simple and perfectly elegant brunch?

If you are looking for creative, budget conscious solutions this is one great approach. To start, you will have many options for a brunch reception as most popular venues fill their calendar quickly with demands for traditional, evening receptions. You can definitely save on the food and beverage because most brunch menu items are less expensive and lighter than a plated dinner. Instead of a cocktail reception, consider a chic coffee and juice bar, simple food displays of delicious pastries, fruits, and savory bites. Have you considered a fabulous brunch for your own reception? Let me know if you have any planning ideas to share!

  • we are hosting a brunch wedding in march 2012 and i couldn't possibly be more excited about it! i get to wear my dress all day and what is more fun than imbibing some mimosas and yummy brunch immediately after al fresco vows in one of savannah's squares?

  • I love the idea of a light-hearted yet intimate lunch reception! Food stations work great for this reason, allowing more mingling and conversation. Interactive stations like a savoury and sweet crepe station would get guests talking for sure!

  • I like the idea of a healthy juice bar! It never occurred to me. It's refreshing, especially in the sea of ideas that pertain to be elegant, yet stiff.
