Would love your feedback! We’ve been dreaming of having a brunch wedding, so are now just trying to pick between Saturday and Sunday (no cost difference in venue). Approximately 30min ceremony, followed by cocktail hour and brunch buffet. Mimosa/bloody Mary bar, plus other alcohol options. <100 guests, with about half local. Thanks so much!

I voted Saturday, but in my mind I’m thinking “it’s a brunch wedding, but we’ll likely still go out and keep the party going after”.
I love the idea of a brunch wedding, I loved what I did for mine but if I could re-do it I’d go the brunch route.

I’m having a brunch wedding on a Sunday. It’s half the size of yours, just family and some friends. We wanted to make sure our wedding was done early enough for guests to fly out that night if they need to. If you’re expecting people to get drunk then Saturday would be better. Wouldn’t want people to feel like they have to skip the drinks if they have a flight to catch.

I voted Saturday because I prefer weddings on days where I don’t have to work the next day. I’m in a different frame of mind and more relaxed. But really, I’d be happy with a brunch wedding either day.

I had my brunch wedding on a Sunday. I wouldn’t really have a preference either way as a guest.

A lot of my family attends church so I’d pick Saturday, considering.

I’d go with Saturday for the same reason as PP – people might get a little glow on from the mimosa bar and decide to go out after. Might as well give them that option if it makes no difference to you cost-wise, unless of course you would like people to be more reserved and only have one or two, then Sunday is probably the right choice.

simplydeep02 : I vote Saturday, always prefer weddings on a Saturday. Brunch sounds fantastic for a wedding! Bloody Mary bar… yum. Let me know when you need my address! 😉

Also wanted to add, if you opt for a Sunday, then your bridal party won’t have to take time off of work on a Friday to do the rehearsal/dinner stuff.

simplydeep02 : I had a brunch reception and it was the best! I’d do it over in a heartbeat. I voted Saturday because I like having Sundays to prepare for the week ahead.

I’d pick Saturday just because I like my Sundays for me. THat being said, a 12pm ceremony means eating at 1:30 or 2, which, in my book, is far from a brunch meal and well into lunch.

We have to travel for the majority of weddings we attend so from that perspective, I would prefer Saturday. If I was local I would have no preference. In this scenario, I would do Saturday since half of the guests will be traveling.

simplydeep02 : I love brunch!! I voted Saturday because I always prefer to have “plans” on Saturday so that Sunday can either be relax-at-home day or available for anything that comes up unplanned.

I voted for Saturday because if we decide to go out there’s no worrying about going to work the next day

Brunch weddings are literally my favorite thing ever. Kudos to you.
I’d say Saturday because it would be nice to have a day to relax afterwards before work, just like a “normal” wedding. But if it’s non-travel (in town), Sunday would be just as good.
