A unique and usually affordable idea is to have a morning wedding followed by a brunch. When you choose to have your ceremony and reception at an “off peak time,” you can usually save quite a bundle on several aspects of your wedding, especially when it comes to wedding catering menus. When perusing wedding menus, see if your caterer offers brunch items and compare the cost to a full dinner, or to the appetizers for wedding reception costs. In most cases, a brunch fare will be more economical and can be just as elaborately served as a sit-down dinner or buffet.
There will be many brunch wedding menus to choose from as you can offer traditional brunch items, such as omelet and carving stations, or you can select gourmet items like crab legs, Belgian waffles, sushi and a wedding dessert buffet. Make sure you specify in your catering contract all of the items from the wedding menus that you would like served to your guests during your brunch reception. The more items you choose, the more costly it will become. However, you can serve a great brunch on with a limited number of items as well.

When reviewing the wedding menus for your brunch, try to select an even number of breakfast and lunch items. Don’t forget guests with dietary restrictions. There are many vegetarian options that everyone will enjoy such as frittatas, yogurt parfaits, scones and salad. Guests who keep kosher can enjoy sushi or stone fired pizzas. Offer egg substitutes, fresh fruit and grilled veggies for the health conscious as well. A vital dietary consideration includes guests with a sweet tooth! Your wedding menu must certainly have sweet delicacies on the buffet line. Coffee cake, cheesecake, cupcakes and, of course, your wedding cake can all be offered as a part of your wedding brunch.
A wedding brunch is not only economical, it is also a fun and festive way to celebrate your wedding. With a variety of items to choose from like scrambled eggs, French toast and quiche to smoked salmon, potato casserole and pasta, your guest will undoubtedly find something to eat that they will enjoy immensely!
