I would. I’ve only been invited to 3 as most people in my circle just don’t do it. They all have been hosted events by the bride/groom/their families. I have attended all 3 as well and it’s a lovely way to end the weekend. misstomorris :

At 9am I would only do it if it was at the hotel.  And it depends on your wedding timeline the day before.  If your wedding is ending around 9ish or maybe 10, then sure.  If your wedding is going until midnight or later, no way in hell my drunk, tired ass is leaving the hotel for breakfast at 9.  Because that means I actually have to be up and showered and ready to go, have all my stuff packed and in the car and check out by around 830ish or just have it packed and be prepared to rush back and load up the car before checkout at 11.  And if I’m sharing a room/bathroom, that means I’m actually waking up by likely no later than 7 to make this all happen to accommodate the other person also trying to get ready.  That’s just not happening.

If it were closer to 1030 or checkout at 11, that would be doable for me.  The people traveling 8.5 hours might skip it, but that might also happen with 9am depending how late they are willing to get home.

My mom hosted a brunch buffet at the venue the next morning, I think at 11 AM. Depending on how late your wedding goes, don’t make it too early as most people will be tired and/or hungover and won’t be up for a 9 AM breakfast! I say making it a “brunch” time would be better. Also as others have said, if you invite people you need to plan to host it / pay for it.

At my SIL’s wedding, there was not a planned brunch but the mother of the groom decided on one last minute. After all night with an open bar, we all got woken up at 9 AM asking to be down by 9:30 for breakfast and it was harsh. It was a lot of fun and a wonderful gesture, but one of our friends wore sunglasses the entire time because he was still drunk! 

So I say go for it so long as it is planned / arranged ahead and everyone knows the time, and that time isn’t too early in the morning.

We did a brunch open house the day after. Said drop by anytime between 10 am and 1pm. We had a bunch of bagels delivered to the house the day before and also had my dad go out and get fruit salad and supplies for a vat of mimosas while we all got ready the day of the wedding. I actually picked up coffee on way from the hotel to home.

It was really nice! Got to show off the house (no one from our of town had seen it) and also spend time with the families and out of town friends. We invited family (for us this wasnt a huge number,) and out of town friends.  

We probably had about 30-35 people and spent probably less than 300 on food and what not. It was super popular!

I know someone who got into an awkward situation because of a day after brunch, make sure it’s absolutely clear that each person pays theirs and you aren’t hosting. 

Me personally, I never attend those things since the day after a big event I need some relax time without  big groupsmisstomorris :
