It depends on what you want to do and if its important to you to be at the baptism. Since you planned the wedding first, you shouldnt really have to cancel or reaarange your plans if you dont want to. If you want to have the brunch I say go ahead and do it, and leave it up to guests which one they want to attend.

what time is the baptism? i would still host the breakfast – even if you aren’t there, people will understand.

Have you already told people about the brunch? I think it would be fun to actually spend more time with your close friends and out of town guests the next day. But it is also important to be at the baptism of a family member. I understand why you’re torn. It’s true, you get one day… but people know that typically the Friday before and Sunday after are usually taken as well. When are you going on your honeymoon? I’m surprised you’ll even be in town for the baptism. Hope you figure it out 🙂

If I were one of your OOT guests and had no relation to your FSIL, I would not want to attend a party that celebrates her kids baptism, even if it were combined with something honoring you.

If it were me, I wouldn’t change my plans for the breakfast. I also agree that a lot of OOT guests would probably prefer to be on the road at a certain time so asking them to stick around for an afternoon get together would probably not go over well.

Could you have a later breakfast (9-11, but you’d leave a little early)? I agree with CaitMarae…I would feel super weird sticking around for a baptism party for a non-relative.
