  • poll: Is serving breakfast for the rehearsal dinner okay?

    I think it sounds fun!

    It might be fun for some people...but maybe not everyone.

    That's ridiculous!

    First, if you’re hosting, there’s nothing that says "Here’s our personal style!" better than a breakfast for dinner.  Secondly, it sounds DELICIOUS!!  And thirdly, GO FOR IT!

    Love it! Do it! If you’re worried about making sure everyone’s happy, maybe think about having savory omelets and potatoes – those aren’t too breakfast-specific.

    This idea is genius! I love Brinner! 

    My Fiance and I are crazy about tex mex, so we want to have a fiesta themed rehearsal dinner, but our Moms were worried that some guests might not like tex mex (especially older guests). We realized that as long as we warned everyone and tried to provide a variety of different things, then we should be ok. Do your thing and don’t worry about it! I think most people will love it!

    Oh do it! That sounds absolutely yummy! If you’re worried about other people, think of fancy brunches and maybe have similar foods – prime rib or ham, prawns, asparagus, spinach salads or something as a brunch component. I’ll be honest though, I’d load up my plate on yummy biscuits! What a great way to show your personalities 🙂

    I think it’s terrific! You should do it! I thought we were being a little original having a brunch reception, but a breakfast rehearsal dinner is SUPER!!!!

     I agree.  It sounds like fun.  I’m not sure if I’ve met anyone who said they didn’t like breakfast foods.  An d what’s better, is how often do we really take the time to have a REAL breakfast?  Isn’t it usually just cereal or a bagel etc?  I just made breakfast for dinner for my family.  Pancakes, bacon, eggs, potatoes.  Too many carbs, but once in a while, it’s fun.  I think the morning is way too early for breakfast anyway.

    I love it! Who doesn’t reminisce about "Breakfast for Lunch" day in the elementary school cafeteria?!?

    Also, Rehearsal dinners are a great time to express yourself in a way you just can’t justify on your wedding day. Like if you really wanted a BBQ but your family said no way, or of course, breakfast for dinner!

     This gives me a great idea to have a rehearsal brunch (my favorite meal) since there’s a wedding on site the night before my wedding.. we might have to have a morning rehearsal that day before.

    This idea is making me hungry. I love it!

    We are actually having a tough time picking a restaurant for our rehearsal dinner because of our guests varying tastes. However, breakfast is universal favorite, so I may just have to steal this idea.

    I say do it!

    I think it’s an awesomely unique idea! As a non meat/egg eater it’s sometimes hard to find something to eat at breakfast though. I usually end up eating fruit and a bagel. It’s not really something that would satisfy me at dinner though. I like the idea of letting your guests know beforehand so they can eat a snack before if they’re not big breakfast people.

    Love it!  I was thinking about it yesterday morning when we were out to breakfast.  However Future Father-In-Law has to have steak, so no dice for ours 🙂

    Mmm! I love this idea…  I’d love to have this as a rehearsal “brinner”!

    I just got back from Montreal- the breakfast capital of the world… and every morning I enjoyed these fabulous foods! Breakfast foods are so often overlooked & underappreciated!

    Yay Miss Marshmallow 🙂

    I love breakfast any time but I know for a fact that my Fiance would balk at it.  He hates eating that type of food especially at dinner time.
