@RLDugas:  I don’t know what in which order, but I love the idea of wedding breakfasts and non-evening ceremonies, so I think you are on the right track fomr something elegant, different, and fun.

TO RLDugas:  first and foremost, I see you are new to WBee… so a BIG WELCOME to “The Hive”

I LOVE the ideas you are entertaining… great when folks are looking at doing things differently than what everyone else does

Of your list, my fave would be… First Look – Wedding Brunch – Ceremony – Cake & Champagne

BUT a lot of that has to do with the fact that I much prefer my Cake & Champagne after the actual Wedding… because for me, they are symbols of the Wedding Celebration more than just a meal (so in this scenario it would sort of be Dessert on the day)

On the otherhand, IF you could talk to the Venue some more, you might discover that there would be a way around the issue of bringing food in…

What if, they were the Contractor / Go Between … so you made the Arrangements for what you wanted with the Cake Baker, and they ordered it, and then charged you for it as part of the Venue Costs

Sometimes the issue is the RULE is put in place to stop people from bringing along their own items (like a homemade cake) not necessarily applicable to another Licensed Food Vendor (because obviously a Venue infact won’t always make everything 100% from scratch)

This honestly could be a case where you guys aren’t on the same page, because of the wording…

Certainly worth checking into / confirming once again, before you give up on the idea entirely

Hope this helps,
