If you’re a morning person, love breakfast food, and want to do something different for your wedding, you should consider a brunch wedding!
Brunch Weddings Typically Take Place Between 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM.
If you’ve heard of brunch but have never had the pleasure of enjoying one, you should know that it’s a late morning meal that usually falls between breakfast and lunch, and that also replaces both meals. However, the 11:00 AM start time does not necessarily mean that you cannot kick off the festivities earlier (let’s say 9:00 AM) to allow everyone to enjoy more of their afternoon.
Your Wedding Dress, the Groom’s suit, and your Guests Can Be More Informal & Festive.
One of the best things about a mid-morning wedding is that it sets a mellow tone. Plus, because you and your guests will not have the first half the day to get ready, you can make the dress code more relaxed. What’s more, just because you are making the dress code more relaxed, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make it a festive ceremony! You can encourage guests to wear their best summer and/or winter wardrobe (as long as it is appropriate). And, if it’s a Sunday brunch wedding ceremony and reception, you could always ask them to wear their Sunday best!
Brunch Weddings Are Usually Less Expensive Weddings.
According to The Knot, a brunch wedding is one of the most affordable weddings you can have. What’s more, The Knot even lists the average brunch wedding to be between $17 to $85 per head. Two of the many reasons why brunch weddings are often less expensive are because your liquor costs will be a lot lower (as people will drink less in the morning) and venues often offer lower rates to rent earlier in the day.
