So my fiance and I really want ot get married on our anniversary date ( its a wednesday) and while we originally planned on a sunday morning wedding the venue price is just way out of the budget we can get it midweek for less than half and on our special date or damn close to it too. my question is it weird to want to have breakfast for dinner? Its our favorite meal of the day and we could literally eat it around the clock. We’re thinking of doing chicken and waffles as our main entree along with a quiche. We’ll have assorted appetizers (im so excited about the shrimp and grits app idk what to do) that feature fresh fruit as well as BACON on a stick. Instead of serving cake ( I’m crazy picky) we are thinking of doing different plays on classics sweet breads such as sticky rolls/monkeybread french toast casserole etc ( we have to cut a small cake b/c my mom is going to have a stroke if i color outside of the lines anymore). We are a very laid back couple who want to just focus on celbrate this long time in the making day! I feel like our wedding day is a celebration of everything US and this is VERY US!
What do you guys think?

I say do It. Its unique. Brinner is a fabulous meal 🙂 also, mimosas and bloody Mary’s? My only advice would be to make sure it is done right – menu, taste and presentation. Skimping or trying to hire a cheap caterer to do something so different won’t be worth the money saved if it doesn’t work.
I just went to a wedding in December that served burgers and fries because that was their favorite, and it worked because it a little upscale so it didn’t have a bbq or fast food feel to it.

That sounds amazing and I would be totally stoked to come to a wedding and find that for the menu!

Do it! I’ve always wanted a breakfast wedding, so I think it is a great idea. There’s no way it won’t be a hit 🙂

I personally prefer dinner food for dinner. I would be dissapointed to find chicken and waffle for my dinner, and no cake is quite a bummer too. BUT breakfast is not my thing. I usually skip it. And you sound super excited so I felt bad saying this but Im sure you want an honest opinion. Its unique though, I agree with the PP that you have to make sure it to be done right.

ja5mn3: Love it. Breakfast food is awesome. I mean good breakfast food, I eat Fiber One every morning, I think that stuff is literally cardboard from recycled Fiber One boxes. But what you named sounds fantastic.
If someone doesn’t like it that’s ok, personally I hate dry chicken breast, congealed mashed potatoes and three carrots for dinner but that’s never stopped anyone from serving it at their wedding.

I would love chicken and waffles! I’m not so much a fan of your “dessert” options…maybe muffins, like banana nut, blueberry, and chocolate chip would be better?

ja5mn3: The menu sounds delicious but I would think carefully about getting married on a Wednesday. What time would your wedding start? Six o’clock? Keep in mind that most people will not take off work for this, which means they won’t stay out late.
Personally I want my wedding day not my wedding night.

ja5mn3: sounds fun! And breakfast for dinner is always good, but please don’t skip the cake! It’s what everyone like about weddings! Lol

This sounds so fun and delicious! There is nothing I love more than bacon the day after drinking except bacon while drinking. I’d go to your wedding in a heartbeat!

I originally was thinking of breakfast for dinner but changed it to brunch. Im super excited about it. We are doing a french style brunch & are getting married on a Friday afternoon. We are having just family & very close friends most of which are retired but we have discussed time with the few that arent & they are good with it.
You should for sure go with this idea! Ive gotten so much positive feedback about mine. Its something different which is a nice change.

Love it!! As long as there’s food I’m there to be honest but the menu sounds good. I would need a cup of tea to wash that down xx
