Hi Punkin!

We’re having a brunch reception, too!  It hasn’t happened yet, so maybe someone who’s had one will be able to help both of us with a tale of how realistic any of this is, but here’s what we have in mind, at least, in case that’s helpful (put together with the help of our venue, which hosts brunch receptions often, apparently):

We’re doing what you mentioned in your first option.  Ceremony — then pictures while there is a 30 minute or so "cocktail" thing going on.  Then we go into the reception area, where we will be introduced, have our first dance and do toasts.  They expect this to take about a half hour…then they will open up the buffet (so eating comes next!).

I would think perhaps afterward you could move your guests to the area where the dancing would take place?  Except…where is the cake to be cut?

We’re doing the cake cutting after the dancing begins — if there is dancing (not sure how much to expect at a brunch receptionP — and toward the end of the event (kinda to signal the end of the meal/near end of the affair kinda thing), but I wonder if you shouldn’t serve the cake first and THEN move to where the dancing is taking place!
