@aekc:  I went to a morning wedding with a brunch reception. There was soft music played the whole time, a delicious brunch menue, and mimosas. It was very laid back and casual. I really enjoyed it because it really fit the couple!

@aekc:  They used the speaker system that the venue offered and painstakingly put the list together over several months! It wasn’t a super long reception (3 hours with the eating, mingling, and speeches/cake (no dances)), but they really wanted to make sure they were creating the right ambiance!

I have been to a Morning Wedding… and I really liked it… especially the Brunch / Lunch aspect.

There was no big dance afterwards… but it was still ok (altho the Bride & Groom did their first dance)

The nice thing was, the whole day came off as a classy affair, with lots of opportunity to greet Guests and spend time with family…

AND as a BONUS the B&G got to leave the Reception at a decent hour and get on with their Newlywed Life *

I know they had an early flight out the next day… so they appreciated that they had lots of time with friends & family… and still be able to get a good night’s rest

Hope this helps,

* Not to mention that a Morning / Afternoon event was much cheaper than an Evening / Nightime one.  None of the Guests I saw seemed to mind the time change at all.

@aekc:  I had a luncheon, so we were done by 4!

I agree on the Mimosas and soft music (we used the venue’s sound system). And Mimosas so people can have morning-acceptable booze!

We’re having a bunch wedding. It’s less expensive but we still get to serve a ton of food and our guests will have the rest of the afternoon to do as they please. I’m so glad it’s not going to be a huge, all night affair because I don’t like being the center of attention!

I dream of a morning ceremony and brunch reception. It can be a really elegant affair, but low key at the same time. Mimosas, caesars, cheesecake-stuffed French toast, and a harpist are on my  must haves list.

Me! I’m doing a brunch/lunch. We had to because of costs. To be honest, I’m still sad about it because I dreamed of having a nighttime affair under the stars, but it didn’t work out. I think it will be different than the typical wedding, and actually, it’s nice for us because we don’t like to dance. We want chill music and to mingle and drink/eat with our friends. It’s shorter during the day, so I hope we won’t regret that!
