@mrsedwardslpn:  Look at a resturant? A hotel? Just ideas. Cake for breakfast, yes! Maybe like a wedding coffee cake type thing…? This is a really unique Idea and I love that it’s not traditional.

I wouldn’t do it, but then again I am a night owl. My reservation would be that if you started the ceremony at 8 or 9, in order to get hair, makeup, first look (if you’re doing one) and all that done, you’re going to have to wake up REALLY, REALLY early (probably like 3 a.m. depending on how much driving.

If you’re ok with that, I’d look into boathouses. I saw a really neat breakfast on Four Weddings once where it was in the morning, and they did it at a boathouse, and it was really pretty. Depending on if where you are would be too chilly that early, a garden would also be nice. Museum cafes are also pretty in the daytime, as they usually have big picture windows and things.

We have this where I live. Not sure if you have something like this near you, but if you do, it’d probably be perfect. And to save money, you wouldn’t even need to decorate!

@mrsedwardslpn:  So the reception will be 11.00, or even later. I wouldn’t call that breakfast. It sounds more like brunch, or even an early lunch.

@mrsedwardslpn:  Oh–when you said morning, I was thinking EARLY.

For the record, though, as I guest I wouldn’t mind if it was at 8 or 9; I just know that a lot more goes into getting ready for the bride than for a guest, who can pretty much shower, put on a little makeup, throw on a cotton dress and go. Good luck with your chef search.

sounds great. maybe add some fruit as well? 

 

As for doing it yourself, I think the big problem would be set up. if you can get a few family members to help it should work well. if not, would look into having a small local business cater. in my area, something like this would cost around 22 per person including waitstaff.

@mrsedwardslpn:  Yeah and that’s the point… most people will want to eat beforehand, which is why I’d call it brunch not breakfast.
