@regit45:  Technically, I don’t have one yet. He hasnt proposed yet. But we are both thinking an early am wedding with a brunch reception.  Our current imaginary date is 11-14-15, but until its official he wont say thats the actual date.

As much as I love and adore bacon,  if this is buffet style,  cold,  greasy out on the heat pan too long bacon is just nasty. Sausage is a little more forgiving in sitting out.

Sounds delish! 


My vote on meat goes to bacon, hands down.


What about Baileys for another drink, goes great with Coffee and hot chocolate – both drinks often seen at brunch or Tequila Sunrise.

If it’s brunch, not breakfast, it needs one or two more lunchy, savory things – maybe a salad or two and a chicken dish? I expect to eat some veggies when I eat brunch!

@regit45:  My DH and I had a great brunch reception — ceremony was at noon and brunch was at 1pm.  The only alcohol we served was champagne and mimosas.  Our venue was new and super-flexible, so they let us bring our own mimosa fixings.  I think one type of alcoholic drink is definitely enough.  As for food — to me your menu seems more “breakfast” than “brunch.”  Our wedding included frittata, grilled ham, grilled chicken, some sort of seafood medley, with roasted potatoes, mixed veggies, and a few other things I’m blanking on.  Ham is very reasonable from a catering perspective, and is a little more “lunch-y” than bacon or sausage, so you might want to see if you can get that as an option.  Again, if you were eating at 9am your menu sounds great…but at brunch I think people will expect a bit more.

@primrosehedge:  I second that. I didnt see any options to cater to the lunch portion of brunch. If you are using all breakfast foods, that is great but call it breakfast. I would wonder where the non breakfast foods were if I were a guest.
