Weddings are normally seen as a late afternoon or evening event, but one of the most popular trends this year is opting for a brunch soiree in the late morning.
We can’t get enough of this idea and have found some great ways to throw a brunch wedding on Pinterest.
At a brunch wedding, it really is all about the food, and with so many food options to choose from there a number of ways to serve them. One of the more popular ways is by setting up several food ‘bars’ with different breakfast favorites like pancakes, waffles, biscuits and omelets. Don’t forget about drinks too, like a mimosa bar, bloody mary bar and coffee bar.
Talk about throwing tradition out the window! Some of our favorite cakes haven’t been made out of cake mix at all. Embrace the brunch theme with a crepe cake, pancake cake or mini doughnut cake!
Games at weddings have been popular for a long time, and brunch is the perfect setting for this. Bring out some corn hole or set up a croquet course; anything to get the guests up and having fun!
Brunch decor is usually more light and whimsical and a little less formal, much like the wedding itself. Try using lighter colors and bright flowers that will make the room pop.
Breakfast is a meal almost everyone can get behind, which is why this trend has gained so much popularity. Remember to have fun with it, especially the food! What other event can give you the excuse to have a mini doughnut cake?
See You Soon,
