We had a lot of Out of Town guests and had a brunch at a restaurant across from one of our hotels with block rooms. We loved it- was a great opportunity to say goodbye to our guests and kind of keep the party going.  We had an open house style from 10-2pm. I’d say about 80 or so of our 175 ppl came.

It’s certainly not a requirement but it can be nice. I had one–it was a great way to catch up (or chat more in depth) with people I didn’t get to speak with much at the wedding. If some guests have to head home early or don’t think they’ll be up to it they do not have to attend.

I had some guests from different countries (in one case from a different continent) and I really wanted to spend more time with them, so I asked them for brunch the next day. I didn’t feel I HAD to but I genuinely wanted to. I got to spend the rest of the week with my husband on our honeymoon.

I’ve never really heard of them until wedding bee. Where I’m from people might get together and have breakfast if they’re staying in the same hotel or airbnb type thing, but the bride and groom don’t actually host another event. So with that I say unnecessary unless you just want to
