go for it. If guest who are being fed FREE AND GOOD food think you are cheap, then screw em.

You know what’s best for your body, tastebuds and budget.

P.S. Id LOOOOVE a brunchy wedding feast. Also, as long as there is food and drink, people don’t really care.

Breakfest for dinner is always a fun treat. If that is what you want then go for it.

TBH- are you having a fancy wedding or casual? Breakfest might suit a casual wedding better.

I don’t even like breakfast for breakfast haha, but I would attend a friend’s or family member’s wedding regardless of what they were serving!

If you do brunch, definitely go all out and partake in lots of mimosas. πŸ˜‰ If you do an evening wedding, would you be more comfortable (about people judging or whatever your concerns are) serving a traditional dinner and then providing a late night snack, like waffles or something like that?

Breakfast for dinner sounds fun and tasty! It would be a great fit for a casual wedding.

I’m a morning person so I think a breakfast/brunch wedding would be nice! My opinion is biased though! πŸ™‚

Provided your venue / caterer can make it happen, I think it’s wonderful πŸ™‚ You could do a delicious breakfast wrap, hash browns, waffles, fruit salad, mimosas… What a fun idea!Β

Sounds delicious to me! I think the way to make it not seem “cheap” is to go all out with it, with good selection and quality food, making it more of a theme.

hannahmariee0527 :  I personally wouldn’t do it for my own wedding because I like dinner food much better. However, as a guest at someone’s wedding, I’ll be ok with it.

I would hate this, but it’s not my wedding.

hannahmariee0527 :  there are so many “breakfast foods” that translate well into the ideas surrounding traditionally heavier meals like dinner.

Shrimp & Grits ( try Bleu cheese Grits omg!)

Chicken & waffles  ( use chicken strips and even think of adding a savory element like Gouda to the waffle for a more dinner like experience)

Crab cakes benedict  (Yasssss! Hollandaise!)

A smoked salmon bar with capers,  onions, Lemons and plenty of cream cheese to smear over toasted baguette slices.

Quiche with bacon and oh God just everything delicious!

I prefer dinner for breakfast. Lol. I’m just not a big breakfast food fan. That said, I wouldn’t complain or think you were cheap. I don’t understand it but most people love breakfast for dinner.

I would take PPs suggestion and do some less “breakfasty” foods like shrimp and grits or having a carving station or something like that. One of the reasons that I don’t really like breakfast is because I don’t really like eggs, so I’d hate it if it’s one of those where eggs are seemingly in everything.
