@regit45:  Did you steal this menu out of my head?

We keep talking about doing this basic menu except with crepes and perhaps waffles instead of french toast. Toppings on the side. Bacon. Def Bacon.

We are thinking bellini’s and a bloody mary bar…it’s popular down here in New Orleans.

I think it sounds great but like someone else said stick with regular french toast because there will be people who won’t want the fruit. Maybe you could have chicken salad on croissants or something similar for those who want the more “lunch” part of brunch. Other than that I think it looks great!

Men tend to be big eaters.  How about some fried chicken and both sausage and bacon?

Bloody Mary’s are such a difficult drink to do because everyone likes theirs different. If you go with them I’d do a bar with different options. Hot sauce, pickle juice, worschetire, clam juice to make it a caeser, olives, onions. I think that’s all.

And bacon!

I like belinnis but feel they’re very similar to mamosas. I’ve seen straight up champagne served but that could get pricy. Screwdrivers are good. Sex on the beach has lots of fruit juoces in it. Oj, cranberry, vodka, peach schnapps and grenadine.

@regit45:  I. Love. Brunch.  I want to go to your wedding.  Sounds delicious.  Maybe a cranberry cocktail would work if you’re looking for another alcoholic option?  If you’re really looking for something to add I love bagels too, but I think you’ve got plenty of awesome choices.

Could you do build-your-own omelettes and top-your-own french toast?  I am not a fan of blueberries and would prefer syrup on mine.  I would also go bacon over sausages and would love some baileys or kaluhau for my coffee.

I would do a charcuterie if possible.

@regit45:  I would ax the additional alcoholic beverage, BUT…

your menu sounds DELICIOUS. Oh, and I’d take bacon.

@regit45:   I also recommend bacon, but mostly for the reason there are so many different sausages out there, it’s hard to please everyone. First there is patty or link sausage, and everyone has their preference on that; then there is such a variety of spices and herbs in the different brands and kinds that sausage just doesn’t seem to be as much of a crowd-pleaser.
