TIPS FOR HOSTING A WEDDING BRUNCH

The reception may include the most important meal of your wedding festivities, but many couples also choose to host a wedding brunch. There are several reasons that hosting a brunch might make sense for you, and some of those are discussed below.

REASONS TO HOST A WEDDING BRUNCH:
Wedding Rehearsals

While rehearsal dinners are common, for some couples it makes more sense to have a rehearsal brunch. If the wedding is to be a morning wedding, it makes sense to have the rehearsal in the morning as well. You should invite anyone who is included in the wedding along with their families. Some couples also choose to invite any out of town guests to join them at the rehearsal brunch.
Bridesmaids Brunch

Bridesmaids often work very hard to help the bride complete a variety of wedding-related tasks. One way to thank them is by having a bridesmaid’s brunch. This brunch should ideally be held one to two weeks before the wedding. The bride and her bridesmaid’s would be the only ones to attend. During the brunch, the bride can present her gifts to the bridesmaids. Some brides do this at the rehearsal brunch or dinner, but a brunch provides a more intimate setting.
Weekend Celebrations

If you are having a wedding celebration that lasts an entire weekend, a wedding brunch is a must. The brunch is a great chance for all of your guests to spend some time mingling and getting to know one another before the wedding. Everyone who is on your guest list should be invited to this type of a wedding brunch. However, if you are allowing guests to bring their children to the wedding, it is ok to make the brunch for adults only.
For Out of Town Guests

Often, out of town guests travel a great distance to attend your wedding but get to spend very little time with the couple. Such guests usually arrive just a day or two before the wedding, during which time the couple is busy with last minute details. A brunch the morning after the wedding is a wonderful way to show your appreciation to these guests. This brunch would be only for out of town guests. It does not have to be a very formal affair, but it can be if you would like. Even if it means you might have to leave for your honeymoon on a later flight, it is worth the extra trouble to be able to spend time with these special guests.
