How early are we talking here? lol Personally as I guest it would be cool if it wasnt too early. I love the idea of having an omelette station and belgium waffle station and all that fun stuff for a breakfast reception!

We’re having a brunch reception following our 10:30am ceremony. The meal itself probably won’t begin until close to noon, so I wouldn’t consider it breakfast. I’ve been to a brunch reception before and it was lovely! Inspired me to have brunch for mine too.

I think a brunch wedding reception would be lovely and a nice “change of pace” from the “normal” weddings we all attend!

My cousin had an 11:30 am wedding and a brunch reception, and it was lovely! My in-laws were invited (they live near my aunt & uncle, they became friends when we got engaged), and kept going on about it being the “oddest time for a wedding we’ve ever heard of,” so just be aware that you might get some nonsense from guests who are like “what? there’s only one way to have a wedding!” Don’t let it influence you, just be prepared for it!

I think the idea of a morning reception is great! However, breakfast food, not so much, so maybe a brunch after with lunch food as well?
Having to follow a gluten-free diet, breakfast is not easy… even frustrating! But even without that diet, I think both options is probably better.

ive not been to one but i see them all the time at Shelly Beach/Many at the Le Kiosk restuarant and i always think its a FAB idea.  a beautiful early wedding followed by a lovely brunch and the bride and groom still have the entire day and evening to relax and enjoy

i would love to go to a wedding like this

We’re also having a morning ceremony (10:30)  & brunch reception (“cocktail” hour 11; food served 12)…I’m super excited about it!  We’re DEFINITELY having a belgian waffle station & toppings bar, omlette station, & mimosas…can’t wait!

So far, no one has raised an eyebrow or questioned our decision…or maybe our guests just have the good manners not to question the invite! Wink

I had a brunch reception in September and could rave about it all day. It was such a wonderful time of day to tie the knot, and it was particularly lovely because we were outside. The very short ceremony started at about 11:15 and we were eating by noon. We offered both breakfast and non-breakfast food options, and made it a 3-course meal, followed by cake, to make it a leisurely affair. We had a cellist and a guitarist there too, which was lovely. One of the extra benefits was that it is more cost effective, and we were able to leave for our honeymoon straight from the reception (old school style!). Here’s a photo to set the scene:

Swoon! I love that picture. How fun would it be to do this? We’re having our reception/ ceremony on Saturday and I keep coming back to this idea… so fun!

I love the idea but I would just be concerned with how much time there would be to get ready beforehand, allow the vendors to set up, take photos, etc. before the ceremony. Then add the time of the ceremony, I would be worried it would be getting pretty late to fee people a breakfast or brunch.
