I’m no expert but not sure how that would be tacky – sounds perfectly sensible to me! Smile

Because checkout time is the same for all rooms I found everyone was down eating breakfast about the same time anyway.  

I wouldnt print invitations. You could juse casually mention that you will be planning to eat at a certain time. If they are up and want to eat, they will catch up with you.

EDIT: I thought you meant day after, you actually mean day of. An invite is a good idea in this case to be sure you are on the same schedule.

I don’t think this would be tacky at all. As a wedding host, you are under no obligation to serve a breakfast meal (unless you choose to hold your wedding at 9 a.m.!) As a guest/wedding party member,I would rather go with the rest of the party than either going alone, or missing it altogether because I didn’t know it was happening.

That sounds so convenient! We all did breakfast on our own the day of but had lunches delivered to the church where we were getting ready.

Definitely not tacky. I wouldn’t make an invite though. Maybe just mention on the welcome note that you will be at the complimentary breakfast at this time if anyone wants to join you.

Sounds like a great idea to me!

I would check with the hotel restaurant before deciding if I wanted to print something up. Some will hold a table for your group, and some won’t, and you may need to either make it a less-formal word of mouth thing, or appoint a few folks to head down early and get a big enough table for your group.  As a guest, I might be a little annoyed if I made breakfast plans based on an invite or announcement, and turned up only to find that the whole group couldn’t sit together—- the whole point of going at the appointed time is to see the rest of the folks, and if I were sitting by myself or just with Darling Husband, we could have skipped breakfast or gone early or slept in and gone late, etc.

I don’t think I would be downright mad, because sitting by myself for breakfast is not the end of the world, but I’d be irritated.

I think it’s fine! We’re doing that with all of our out-of-town guests the morning after the wedding!

It would be fine, we’re planning on eating at the hotel buffet (included in room price) the morning of the wedding, since we are staying there Friday night.

Not tacky, it sounds nice. What do you think might be tacky about it?

Not tacky, I think it’s thoughtful!  Just tell ppl through an email or a card that’s delivered at check-in that you’re going to be eating breakfast in the such-in-such room of the hotel at such-and-such time and would love their company.

Not tacky, just remember other wedding guests might be there as well and you may have them coming up to you and asking questions and you may not want that.

We had breakfast while we were getting ready in the bridal suite which was more intimate – you could always have your girls go get a bunch of stuff from the breakfast room. We were also going to order some food from a favorite diner of mine to bring into the room but ended up nixing that, which I wish we hadn’t because I ended up hungry and nervous in the last hour before the ceremony!
