We are doing a brunch thing for the immediate family and guests staying at the hotel that night. I think we will be so tired by the end of the brunch I am going to want to get home and relax with my new hubby and take it all in! Maybe watch some law and order…who knows? lol

We are having our wedding in Atlanta so ours will be a brunch/lunch probably in a hotel, restaurant, etc but I think a BBQ sounds great! I would love to do something like that! I think the day after can be anything you want it to be, it doesn’t have to be formal and it’s usually for family/bridal party and/or close friends, so more intimate.

Love the idea!

The day after BBQ sounds delicious and an awesome plan to unwind with friends and family.

I think a day after BBQ is awesome. That is what we had at my parents. It was nice to unwind from it all and our guests enjoyed it.

Yes, sort of!

We are having a very small wedding- 15 people. After the ceremony, we are all going out to dinner- probably similar to what people do for a rehearsal dinner (we aren’t having one of those). I really didn’t want a huge affair, i see my wedding as being very personal. Also, can’t afford a big blowout. So, after we are married, we are throwing a bbq for all of our friends- probably a week or two after, so that we dont’ get overwhelmed.

Yes, and not just BBQ.  I guess that in Russia(where my FI’s family is from) they have weddings for like 3 days or something.  Future Mother-In-Law has even said that whoever wants to come over and eat and drink the next day is more than welcome. So i guess it will be like 2 receptions….

We are doing a morning after brunch.  A lot of our guests are from Out of Town and I didn’t think that many would be able to stick around until lunch time.  I figured brunch was cheaper and easier and more people could attend.  It will be nice to get a chance to thank everyone personally again and say goodbye before we all leave.

i think I’m wearing shorts and a “just married” t-shirt. Maybe a “Just Married- Life is Good”. The Life is Good shirts are made in the town next to mine.

I’m probably going to rent some sort of tarp thing so people can get out of the sun for a bit- but otherwise, ours is going to be uber-casual. Just a We’re married, come celebrate with us” sort of a thing. Music for sure, will be playing ,and I’m hoping my chorus (I sing in a show chorus) will sing a little ,too.

Since the day after my wedding is Memorial Day, my parents are hosting a BBQ in their backyard.  I think about 30 people are invited (same people as the rehearsal dinner) and we’re going to grill out and maybe Fiance and I will open some presents.

We didn’t figure anyone wanted to do an indoor brunch at a restaurant or the hotel on Memorial Day.  I’ve always sort of hated those, anyway.  The BBQ seems less “ME ME ME”, if that makes sense.  Like, people celebrated me all last night, do they REALLY want to come to a stuffy brunch and watch me open presents while they’re all hung over and just want to go home?

I ended up wearing something white-ish but I didn’t really think about it. It was a cute and comfy white summer dress with multi color flowers. I was all about comfort at that time but then again that is who my family is.

I bought an off-white dress I’m considering wearing.  It depends on the weather though.  It’s Wisconsin – it could be 50, or it could be 80.

We are having a BBQ the day before. Since all of our guests are from out of town we are inviting everyone to a BBQ instead of having a rehearsal dinner.
