Brunch is both breakfast and lunch items, so I’d do both. I’d maybe include a soup or two? I’ve always had that at brunch. 

But the other menu looks good too.

Don’t forget about your vegetarians!

I agree that the brunch or breakfast wedding idea is truly inspired when done right. I think that one of the most important things in this kind of a wedding is the food. Guests will probably hear the word “brunch” and instantly picture bare tables, grumbling stomachs and empty cheese trays. Prove them wrong! I plan on having a sit down plated brunch menu with multiple courses. Having interactive stations is a fun and unexpected concept (waffles, pancakes, omelets, crepes, french toast, smoked salmon, panini, ham carving station and etc.). Whatever you serve should fit the brunch style and fill your guests up.

@Darling23:  Really? People think “bare tables and empty cheese trays” when you say, “brunch?” I picture yummy late breakfast, with eggs, pancakes, pastries, and an option to have more lunch-like items, like soups and salads and quiche… Oh, and coffee, juices and maybe mimosas and punch! I picture a feast! (If a bit more casual than a dinner) Mind you, I love breakfast foods and brunch and that’s what we’re doing for our reception… So I may be a bit biased…

@SammiBaby88: If it helps, we’re doing ours on a Sunday, with 10 a.m. ceremony, appies after (dips, bruschetta, fruit skewers), and then serve buffet brunch at about 11:45. We’ll have eggs Benny (veggie and traditional), blackberry pancakes with real maple syrup, a variety of breakfast pastries, hashbrowns (veggie and not) a soup, a couple of salads, veggie quiche, salmon filets and saffron rice. We’re also providing tea and coffee, non-alcoholic punch, mimosas and poinsettias (alcoholic and non). There will be wine available, but given the time of day, the fact that we’re already providing brunch cocktails, and the fact that our wedding will be “in the country” (i.e., folks will be driving), we’re leaving it to our guests to get their own glass of wine at their leisure.

Now, we just have a bunch of veggie options because I’m vegetarian and so are several of our guests, and many others will eat fish, but no red meat. But you can take inspiration from our menu and turn it “meatatarian,” if you like!

Hope it helps… (Now I’m hungry…)
