Should You Consider a Brunch Wedding?

We know that Saturday evenings are the most popular time to host a wedding, but it definitely isn’t the only option. Couples are choosing weddings every day of the week and all hours of the day. Here are some reasons to forgo the evening event and consider a daytime wedding for your special day:

Food & Beverage

Brunch weddings open the doors to a variety of non-traditional wedding foods. Imagine serving your guests sweet and savory items like stuffed French toast, quiche, migas, pastries, or pancakes.

For a daytime wedding, you can also serve light and fresh bar options like Champagne, Mimosas, and Bloody Mary’s. These classic drinks are crowd favorites and cost less than the Full Bar alternative.

Lighting

Yes, everyone loves a sunset, but morning weddings have their own special beauty. Daytime weddings highlight the natural surroundings of an outdoor wedding.

Cost & Availability

Many venues will offer special rates for daytime events. Also, the cost of the brunch food and beverage options mentioned above tend to be less expensive than their dinner counterparts. If you are trying to stay within a specific wedding budget, considering a brunch wedding can really help.

Availability is also a big concern for brides, as many venues book peak dates far in advance. Being flexible to a daytime event will increase your chances to get your desired day, weekend, or month.

Time to Relax After the Wedding

Many couples rush off for their honeymoon the morning after their wedding without much rest after the late night of partying and drinking. A brunch wedding gives you a unique opportunity to relax, spend time with your new spouse, and wake up the next day refreshed and happy. After the daytime wedding, you can enjoy a romantic dinner together, lounge around in your hotel room, and prepare last minute items for your honeymoon.

Some Vintage Villas couples even choose to plan activities with close family and friends after their daytime wedding, like golfing or even renting a party boat.

One thought on “Should You Consider a Brunch Wedding?

  1. We’re doing a brunch wedding w/ you in August and are so excited!!! We LOVE the idea of brunch and mimosas, nap time after the wedding and being able to plan more fun stuff in the evening! (We are planning to reserve a bar/restaurant downtown and where our guests can get some dinner and continue the celebration.) Also, another major plus is that our outdoor ceremony will be waaaaaaaay less hot at 10am than 6pm in the summer! :)
