Totally not weird…I’ve seen some cute brunch weddings and girls who wish they would have thought about it.

I’m getting married at noon on a Sunday, so I don’t think it weird. Some people have said something, but not many. Good luck!

I think it’s a great idea.  Who cares if the guests think it’s due to money?  If you like the idea, be confident about it and go with it.  I would enjoy a Sunday brunch wedding.

I don’t think it’s weird. Probably a smarter idea to conserve funds. I’m pretty sure no one will think you are being cheap. Most people know that weddings are pretty expensive. Have you thought of maybe making a honeymoon registry? I know that I am thinking of doing one because the SO & I have plenty of house stuff from living on our own for years.

I don’t think it is weird to have a brunch wedding. If your motive is strictly financial, then maybe it would help to explore some other ways to save money. You can go on a honeymoon anytime but your wedding only happens once. I think the Sunday morning thing really depends on your family and friends. If they participate in religious activities on Sunday mornings, I would bet there would be some questions as to why you would have your wedding on Sunday morning. Also, a brunch reception means you would have to get up really early to get ready. Actually, everyone would have to get up early to get ready.  For me, too many things could go wrong with a morning wedding. But if a morning wedding is really what you want then go for it.

edit: Also, I wanted to add that I believe the reason morning weddings are less expensive is venue and vendor costs. Most brunch weddings don’t have a DJ or lights. There is usually no alcohol beside champagne. If you can find a less expensive venue, limit drinks and find a cheaper music selection, you would probably keep the same budget as a brunch wedding.

Not weird at all. Most people will gladly eat whatever you serve.

my cousin did this for her wedding and everyone liked it. It was such a nice day and people loved that it wasn’t the normal dinner and dancing. They went this route to save for a honeymoon as well.
