We are having an at-home reception following our destination wedding. The party will start at 11am and we are serving brunch.
Although the start time should be somewhat of a giveaway, I feel like I should make it clear to people that it’s basically breakfast and not to be expecting typical wedding food.
I was thinking about wording the invitations to say something about the menu (something along the lines of just like breakfast is a good start to the day, so would your presence be a good start to our marriage), but I’m drawing a complete blank. Any ideas?

I would say something along the lines of,
“Brunch reception at BLANK will immediatley follow the ceremony.” (If not immediatley, than name time.)
I would appreciate the heads up as a guest! I would be excited about brunch : )

@Pearberry: +1 – wording it as “brunch reception” is perfect, I think.

yes, i think the time will be a good indicator of meal. i would mention “brunch reception” on the invites. the time would be getting too late to call it breakfast.

@Pearberry: I really like this, but the problem is there is no ceremony. This is it…just the at home reception.
Could we just say something like “You are invited to celebrate with us at a brunch reception”?

I think that wording would work.

We’re seriously considering having Freebirds (Chipotle is a Freebirds knockoff) cater our reception. Since no one except our friends will have ever eaten anything like that, we will include a card in the invitation that will say something explaining the process (first you pick your tortilla and then the Freebirds guy will ask you what you want for beans, rice, meat and toppings and then they will roll it up, wrap it in foil and you eat the crap out of it) and will include the burrito options so that the picky eaters can be at ease. You could include a small card that said something similar or just say “Brunch reception to follow”
