    Unfortunately, I don’t think you can have it all.  It’s the biggest problem I have planning… for every decision you make it seems like you have to sacrifice 10 things!<br /><br />

    While I love breakfast for dinner at my house, at a wedding I would be very taken aback.

    There are simple meals that can be prepared that are more dinner appropriate but still a fair price.  Is it possible to look into that?

    I am assuming you are not serving alcohol as it’s a religious hall.  I would definitely be confused if I got breakfast for dinner and some orange juice or something… I’d wonder if you accidentally started 5 hours too late!

    I would stick to your original plan of a brunch.  People may not dance as much as you like, but they will still mingle.

    Me honestly, I wouldn’t be too excited about it. I am one of the super routine people that can only eat breakfast foods for breakfast, and dinner foods for dinner. I think a brunch would be fun! FI and I threw that idea around because we loooove our weekend brunches 🙂

    I’m not a fan of breakfast foods (I are a ham sandwich for “breakfast” this AM) so would not enjoy the food. however I wouldn’t complain about it either. I think a brunchtime wedding would be lovely. Who knows… People may still dance!

    I’d be cool with it. Not if it was a super formal wedding (I wouldn’t want to be decked to the nines eating my bacon and eggs, lol) but it seems like it’s a bit more casual from your description. We love breakfast foods though and would be happy to eat them anytimes….I don’t know that we would be in the majority.

    Breakfast at dinner is a great concept at home, but would confuse me at a wedding!

    I think the idea of a brunch wedding at brunch time would be fantastic though! And I’d still dance.

    A friend had a brunch wedding a few years back, and everyone got on the champers early on and there was certainly dancing and lots of merriment! It was held at a beautiful boathouse location, and the daylight really showcased the scenery and no one missed the lights 🙂

    Call me the unpopular opinion on this, but I love the idea. I think as long as you’re not planning on a very formal event, I don’t see why this couldn’t work and be delicious! By the same token, I love brunch weddings, (that’s just me).No matter what food you have, some people are going to be unsatisfied, but ultimately it’s your call. I would personally love the idea.

    I personally love breakfast for dinner! I think you have two options here:

    1) Stick with the original early morning ceremony/brunch plan. Then have an after-party that evening at your favorite karaoke bar, piano bar, nightclub, wherever you would like to dance with your friends.

    2) Stick with the breakfast for dinner. If you do this, make sure your guests know what to expect. I would only be annoyed with this as a guest if I had a big breakfast the morning of your wedding only to come to our wedding and be served…more breakfast. I would also make sure that you offer your guests at least one “substantial” option in addition to eggs and bacon. This could be shrimp and grits, a brisket hash, fried chicken, etc. You could add at least one of these options for not a lot of money.

    jennabee1218:  I wouldn’t enjoy it all that much – and I’d assume plenty of men (you know the kind that will feel like they starve if they don’t get a steak / burger whatever for dinner) would enjoy it even less….

    I definitly agree with @eilean: If you do end up doing breakfast for dinner, definitly let your guests know in advance so that they’ll dig in during lunch time and won’t be starving in the evening (and maybe even leave your wedding because they are hungry)<br /><br />If you want breakfast food, i’d definitly encourage you to have the brunch wedding. that seems a lot more natural.

    i think it’s a cute idea, but i’m not a huge fan of breakfast foods and i would worry that i’d get stuck having just toast and orange juice for dinner. i don’t like eggs, i don’t like ham, i’ll eat bacon *sometimes*…but i do enjoy waffles and french toast, so as long as there was something like that on the menu i’d be happy 🙂

    I’d think it was cute, but I’d eat a giant lunch first. 😀
