Hi all, Im having a friday evening wedding in NYC.
Most of my guests are flying from out of town and are staying for the whole weekend, leaving Sunday
We thought about having a Saturday brunch but he doesn’t want to get up early the morning after the wedding. He wants to start it at 1PM and I think thats too late. SO we may compromise and have an early Sunday brunch (10-12)
Is it okay to have a sunday brunch (2 days after) for friday wedding, if people are staying for the weekend? What do you think?

Pg229: I presume you are hosting a reception Friday evening. If you are:
– I don’t expect you to host a brunch at all, but it’s always nice
– if you do host a brunch, I see no problem in hosting it on Sunday. Count me in with those who don’t want to get up early the morning after a wedding.
Just make sure that you notify the guests well ahead of time so they don’t book flights too early on Sunday.

I’d have it on the Saturday so people can leave on the sunday…

There is so much great stuff to do in NYC. Guests can be on their own and have fun. Sunday is fine.

Pg229: I wouldn’t expect a brunch, but I would appreciate it more on Saturday (even at 1:00) than Sunday. I probably wouldn’t go on Sunday because I’d be packing and worried about getting to the airport. 1:00 isn’t too late for lunch, why not just call it lunch? Problem solved!

I think that’s totally fine, but I would try to get a head count or a sense of how many people may still be around then. You can’t necessarily count on people sticking around after a wedding, especially in a city like New York.

Pg229: better to have it on Saturday so that guests who may need to leave earlier are able to do so. And it Wd be more considerate to only “take up” 2 days of your guest’s time rather than what would appear like the whole weekend
