we’re having champagne and bloody marys, but most of it is leftover from the night before (we’re bringing in our own alcohol). i definitely don’t think alcohol at 10 in the morning is expected and/or necessary though!

I would say that it would be absolutely alright for you to not serve alcohol at the brunch.  People will understand, especially since at the wedding reception the night before they already had the open bar.  To me, I feel like a morning after brunch is more about relaxation and chatting about the night before anyways.  Don’t feel obligated, I’m sure the guests will be thrilled that there is even an acitivty happening after the wedding anyways.

If you want to provide a little something, maybe provide only mimosas?  You could do that fairly inexpensively – just the OJ and a few bottles of champagne – it can be the cheap stuff, since you’re mixing it anyway.  Usually people will have a mimosa while waiting for breakfast, and at most one more.  You can just have the champagne bottle and a pitcher of OJ on the table, pour-your-own.  I think its also fine not to provide alcohol.

I wouldn’t automatically expect that alcohol was being served at a Sunday brunch event, and wouldn’t be offended if that were the case.  I think most of my guests would agree. 

The fact that you’re hosting a brunch at all is very generous, and I think people would be excited to see you post-wedding and have the chance to actually talk to you a little more than during the wedding.  So have fun!
