Good morning Bees!
I would really love some feedback on an idea that my wedding coordinator proposed. My fiance and I are BIG brunch people … but we also love to dance and want a party atmosphere at our reception – so we want an evening reception.
I am also trying to move away from tradition and what I am calling a “cookie cutter wedding.”
With that, my coordinator suggested a really fun brunch menu … for DINNER!
I love the idea. So does my finace, but I have SOME concerns:
1. is it going to look like we did it just to cut corners and cut cost? (it is a less expensive menu … BONUS!)
2. are people just going to be confused and turned off?
I am certain no one will leave hungry … there is a lot of food with this menu.
I have already gotten a thumbs down from my mom (but she said it’s my wedding and it’s up to me and the fiance)
We are going to feel out his parents tonight (they are the biggest foodies of all!)
But I am still very interested to hear what all you bees think … please be brutally honest!!!

I also love brunch and would enjoy this at a wedding!!! What kinds of foods will you offer? Eggs, bacon, eggs benedict, hashbrowns? Any ‘Lunch’ items?

I really wanted to do this when we were considering a local wedding. We love brunch too. So I am all for it. It’s definitely a way to stand out and do something other than chicken or fish options.
Things to consider tho: There are going to be guests turned off to the idea. But you cant please everyone. If you are a people pleaser this probably isnt the way to go.

I think it is a great idea! If people are going to side-eye delicious food that is at no cost to them just because it’s not “dinner” food, ugh…

I personally think it is a great idea, but to play devil’s advocate….I know a surprisingly good number of people that simply do not like breakfast foods. (I could eat breakfast all day!)

Can you give us an idea of what the menu would look like?? Personally I think it sounds AMAZING, but a menu would help!!

For the menu, we are thinking:
Steak and eggs
Crab cake eggs benedict
breakfast potato cakes
coffee/hot choc bar
@maspa – I am totally a people pleaser and that is my biggest concern!

That menu sounds AMAZING! Go for it!!
Even people who don’t typically like breakfast foods will find thing they’ll like (steak, sushi, etc)

I ADORE this idea!
Fiance and I do “breakfast for dinner” all the time. As does my Maid/Matron of Honor (she calls it “brinner” love that!)
If I went to a wedding serving your menu (which sounds amazing, by the way) I would be so excited!
As far as worrying about people pleasing, your menu has “dinner” type foods like the steak and carving stations and sushi for anyone who is in that kind of mood.
I am really just so excited that a brunch at night wedding exists…and I really hope someone I know does it soon!

@Ms Tee-Off: Your menu looks amazing! Can I come??? Please? 😉
Some people might be turned off by it but I love brunch whenever, where ever.

I LOVE THIS IDEA! Personally, I would be so excited to attend your wedding!
But, I still would like some chocolate cake. LOL. I am always down for cake. Any kind of cake, really. But especially chocolate.

I voted ‘No, bring no the bacon’ although I’m vegetarian! But I think it’s a do-able idea. It’s very different. As long as the food is nice and there’s enough of it, I’d be happy to eat ‘brunch’ food any time of the day!

@Ms Tee-Off: can I add chicken waffles to your menu? Lol
