I think this looks good and I agree with the hashbrowns and potatoes suggestions! 

Keep the chicken & waffles! 

The falafel sounds a little out of place to me (and I love falafel and am veggie) but I think it’s really nice to offer a vegan option. Could you find a vegan option that’s a little more “brunch-ie?” 

Also, bloody mary’s too!

I would personally scrap the strawberry waffles for another egg dish and offer a variety of waffle toppings for people who don’t want chicken with them.

mikesgirl123 :  I’m practically drooling at the falafel burger and cheeseburger, I’d love them both. 

Chicken and waffles aren’t common in my area, but I’ve seen posts here about them being much loved in other areas (I’d be willing to give them a try!), but if they’re popular you should keep these. Ditto the waffles with strawberries etc, as they sound lighter and different from the chicken and waffles. 

If you want to have omelettes, I’d swap them out for the eggs benedict/ florentine. lol just because I personally don’t like eggs benedict. But I’d have plenty to eat with the burgers, fruit and croissants as is. I think your menu is varied enough that there will be something for everyone.

Keep the strawberry waffles! I’m a vegetarian and that dish & the falafel sounds great! I don’t like eggs so…

I would go for the chicken and waffles all the way if I were at your wedding! One egg dish is enough IMO (but I don’t eat eggs, so there you go!)

I’m a super super picky eater and often and have trouble at events like weddings finding food I like but your menu is probably one of the best i’ve seen for a wedding. There are multiple things I could eat!

I would trade out the strawberry waffles for quiche. A side salad would be good too. Everything sounds awesome!

Definitely do chicken and waffles. We’re also having a brunch reception, though set up a bit differently.

We’re having a cocktail hour with passed appetizers:

Northwest crab cakes, pepper bacon gougeres, and black mission figs with blue cheese and red wine syrup

 

Then we’re having a plated brunch with three options:

Cornbread waffles & buttermilk fried chicken, smoked salmon strata (egg dish), and watermelon and peach salad with arugula and mint chiffon topped with white balasmic dressing

Out of the 34 guests who have RSVPed yes, 17 want chicken & waffles. I really like your idea of the strawberry waffles!

I think, as far as your egg dishes go… if you want to play it safe then do the eggs florentine because some people might want eggs, but be averse to runny egg yolk as you would get with the benedict. (I am not one of those people lol) If you think most of your guests are fine with raw egg, then I would say go for the benedcit, because I’m partial to them.

 

I feel like any kind of burger is too heavy for brunch, honestly.

 

High fives for September brunch weddings!

mikesgirl123 :  I think it sounds great and would love to see falafel at brunch. I like someone else’s idea to see if the chicken & waffles can do double-duty by letting people take just the waffle and then have a selection of sweet toppings for it. If that’s not possible, just go with what you’ve got. It covers a lot of bases and sounds really good.

Keep the strawberry waffles! I know so many people (and me included) who dont like meat or savoury food for breakfast or brunch. I would keep the other options too, just please dont get rid of the only sweet/fruity option.

I’m with Kate127 and a few others–keep the strawberry waffles because that’s a good vegetarian dish for those who don’t want the savory falafel burger. I’d also keep the egg dishes as is and don’t add another–eggs are eggs, you know? Lots of people like them and you have 2 choices already.

I saw the potato comments and I agree.

How about some bacon? 🙂

I might also be inclined to add some coffee cake (or other pastries) to balance out the savory stuff. So far it looks like you have 4 savory items and lots of people like the sweet stuff for breakfast (pastries or pancakes or French toast). The croissants generally aren’t sweet enough, even with jam.

Just my 2 cents! I love brunch–so that’s a cool choice for food!
