Okay, so I’m hoping that others can provide insight into our menu options. Which, as a guest, would you prefer to have served to you?
**We will have a dessert bar with assorted cheesecakes, muffins, and pastries in addition to the meal. This will be served with coffee.**
A. Buffet- eggs, potatoes, french toast, biscuits and gravy, bacon, sausage, and fruit.
B. Buffet- eggs, omelets made to order potatoes, french toast, pastries, oatmeal, bacon, sausage, and fruit. $525 total more than A- omelets instead of biscuits and gravy and the addition of pastries (different from dessert bar)
C. Plated- Eggs benedict (poached egg on an english muffin with canadian baconand hollandaise. breakfast potatoes)
Basically, in choosing between A and B, is it worth $525 extra to have an omelet station instead of biscuits and gravy?

A or B, though I voted for B before I saw how much extra it costs. I have a soft spot in my heart for having a brunch buffet wedding – that’s what we did!

And onto the food. It sounds great! I think B is the best option. The omelettes sound great. Do you need the extra pastries though? I feel like this may be too much. Could you keep the bicuits and gravy and nix the pastries? Or maybe just cut the pastries to save money?

My vote is B – lots of variety and the omelette station makes it a bit more fancy.
I also love eggs benedict, but I’m worried that if that’s the only option, you may have some upset guests.

I’m specific about eggs and I hate omelets so I voted for the option without eggs.

The pastries come with the meal–the other pastries/desserts I’d be bringing in so I could nix those I guess.
To me, I think for the price, it makes more sense to have the biscuits and gravy over omelets since the guests are already getting eggs but I wanted the feedback of others.

Anytime I’m offered biscuits and gravy, I’ll take it :p

@lawbride88: That makes sense. And no doubt the eggs will be cooked to preference anyway.

I love brunch! I voted for the second buffet option. It sucks that it’s considerably more (and honestly if I were a guest at your wedding, I’d be totally fine with any of the options you listed), but I think an omelet station is a great idea since it gives your guests the ability to customize their food to their individual tastes. If you don’t mind parting with the extra money, I’d say go for this.
I love eggs benedict, but I agree with some of the previous posters … Your guests may not like having only one option.

I would choose what had the most “other” food. Like star_dust I am very picky about eggs – and eggs benedict normally aren’t cooked enough for me. Oatmeal, though, would be an iffy for me – how is it kept from congealing?
ETA: Bring on the waffles and french toast!

Go with the pastries. Some people (like myself) LOVE pastries…and others (like people I know) barely eat breakfast. Soooooo I think you should have that smaller option.

i will ask what the toppings/fillings are for the omelets–if its cheese, veggies, meats, and what have you then yes..I agree that it’s worth it.
