When you're planning for your wedding, you might consider hosting a post-wedding brunch for you and your guests to enjoy. While untraditional, it could be a wonderful event if you would like to thank out-of-town guests, didn't have enough time to visit with everyone the day before, or if you and your guests are staying in a hotel where breakfast is not provided. With so many other things to plan for, check out our tips to make it a little easier:
Use Your Hotel
If you and your guests are staying at the same hotel, ask if you can reserve a dining room or a portion of the dining area for your wedding party. If your hotel offers a buffet breakfast included with the cost of the rooms, then this gives you the opportunity to save a little money while still getting quality time with everyone. If not, find a local caterer who would be willing to provide food for your breakfast together.
Narrow Down Your Guest List
Inviting everyone who attended your wedding can add another hefty bill to your expenses. Instead, consider limiting your guest list and inviting only close family and friends. If you have out-of-town guests, you might also invite them as a way to thank them for traveling to attend your big day.
Keep It Simple
Your post-wedding brunch doesn't have to be a huge affair—just keep it simple! You already have enough wedding planning on your hands, so make it easier on yourself and just relax. Put basic brunch dishes on the menu like waffles, avocado toast, bacon, omelets, and mimosas.
While a post-wedding brunch might sound intimidating, it doesn't have to be an elaborate affair. Enjoy spending this time with your loved ones and reflecting on the fun you had at your wedding.
