We’re doing a brunch reception, though we’re heavy on the breakfast food.We’re having pancakes (with maple and fresh strawberry syrup), honey-mustard glazed ham, scrambled eggs, fruit salad, hash browns and assorted rolls.

If you are looking for a meat option to add, why not try lasagna? It is fairly inexpensive and most people love it, and it would give a good option for the people who wanted lunch-type food as opposed to breakfast-type food.

@daniellemybelle – Every time I see your menu I get so jealous of your guests! It all just sounds so delicious!

I think ham is a good meat for a brunch/lunch reception. I am starting to gather menu ideas for our reception (I’m considering a brunch/noon-ish wedding) and right now I’m thinking baked ham and pan-fried chicken. Can you tell I’m a southern girl?! 😉  For sides I’ve been thinking hashbrown casserole, french toast casserole, quiche, grits, garden salad, fruit salad, and of course cornbread & biscuits. And I’m wanting a huge dessert table too lol.
