Personally, I LOVE breakfast for dinner….I would adore a wedding with these options! But I am curious as to what others will say…

I read the title and thought “YES PLEASE!!!”

I had never thought of doing breakfast food for a wedding!! What a FUN idea!! Although, syrup is sticky and ketchup can be messy. I would make sure none of it got near your dress 😉 Otherwise, i think it’s awesome!

Okay, I think that while eating breakfast for dinner sometimes is awesome (especially french toast at midnight!) and I like that it is unique and “YOU,” your guests might be surprised in not-a-good way. I would consider either a morning ceremony followed by brunch or some kind of “heads-up” on the reception enclosure. Not sure how to word that though! (Where’s your wedding? An east coast beach summer sunrise ceremony followed by breakfast would be amazing!)

Maybe the reception card could say “a breakfast-for-dinner buffet reception”

I love breakfast for dinner 🙂

What about crepes? Those aren’t everyday food for people.

I vote you just spread the word to your guests by mouth/email/etc. You shouldn’t have to spread the word at all, people are coming to your wedding to celebrate with you. While I get that it isn’t “traditional” for people to do breakfast receptions at dinner time, I don’t think people should get all up in arms about it. I think it’s a great idea. I would be so excited to come to your wedding! 🙂

In general I’m a big fan.  I eat the same breakfast everyday, so the only time we ever eat these delicious alternatives is dinner (or 2am after a night out). 

I think if you’re ok with a more casual feel, it could be cool.

I think a Brinner (breakfast for dinner) reception is a great idea! Sounds delish!

Just make sure the catering company and/or reception facility is familiar with serving breakfast food.  I went to prom with a “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” theme and they served breakfast food – unfortunately it wasn’t so good.  (Obviously prom is different than a wedding, but that was 5 years ago and I still remember the food…).  Cute idea though!

My concern is finding a caterer that would do it.  Catered breakfast is generally less expensive than catered lunch or dinner, and they may be hesitant to fill a dinner time-slot with breakfast pay.  If you can work that out, I say DO IT! 🙂

Mmmm bacon bacon bacon. I’d include some ‘brunch’ type food, too–stuff that can go for dinner. I DO know people who don’t like breakfast food very much. And if my only choices for dinner were eggs, pancakes, the like….i’d probably want some dinner food.

Steak n’ eggs maybe?
