    I think breakfast would be really cool, but it really depends on your guests. Pancakes and bacon with cocktails? Yes please!

    I love breakfast.  I really can eat it anytime of the day.  But there are quite a few people out there that might not like the idea.  I know I would be shocked to walk into a reception and be fed breakfast foods for dinner.  But do what you and your Fiance want – you will never make everyone happy – just make yourself happy!

    I love the breakfast idea! You should have “bunch type drinks”. Think Screwdriver, bloodymary, irish coffee! Have fun with it!

    I love brinner, but would never do it for an evening reception. If I’m attending an evening wedding, I expect to see dinner options not breakfast ones.

    I also love breakfast and we do have omelettes, fritattas etc as dinner at home from time to time. Would I expect it at a wedding dinner? No. Would I be happy with that meal? No Would I say anything? No

    Most alcohol ( other than mimosas, blood mary’s  or caesars)also does not go well at all with breakfast dishes. This might be an advantage as people might drink less.

    I love breakfast however a reception for a wedding in the evening is not a very good choice for meal wise.

    Personally, I think breakfast for dinner is amazing and would be a great “comfort food” type of option for a reception. I’m a little bit surprised to see some negative responses to it, but then I know that me and the people I know operate on more casual expectations for weddings than some. That said, the breakfast spread you mentioned does strike me as a little bit simple for a wedding. Maybe they could do a french toast casserole or something with potatoes that might make it feel more fancy and wedding-y? But I think it really depends more on your personalities and what your social group would probably expect–not necessarily what they would expect in general, but what they would expect given that they know you and what your tastes are.

    I big puffy heart LOOOOOOVE breakfast so I think it’s awesome! When we were in the beginning stages of planning we entertained the idea of having a brunch buffet at our evening reception. Most of our family was totally on board but we ended up going in another direction. 

    Go for it and come back and tell us how amazingly awesome it was!

    I think a breakfast buffet is awesome! It’s a completely unexpected surprise for a wedding reception and a great way to break out of the norm. Not to mention if it’s going to save you money? Win-win!

    I’m usually all-for breakfast, but at a reception, I think I’d stick with one of the other options.

    Although I love breakfast at any time if I were going to a wedding I would prefer “dinner food”. That being said it is your wedding and you should do what makes you happiest!

    I chose the buffet becuase that way people can pick and choose what they like depending on their dietary restrictions.
