    1 - Cancel the breakfast

    2 - Golden Corral and everyone pay for themselves - I'll tell you how to word it in a comment below!

    3 - Host a basic continental breakfast in the backyard

    I vote for canceling the entire breakfast! From my POV, the day after my wedding, I want it easy, breezy or nothing at all. Running to the store/cafe to pick up platters, set up, host, clean up, etc all over again sounds exhausting.

    Give everyone a Pop Tart for a wedding favor and tell them to enjoy it the next day. Phew! 🙂

    it’s too late to cancel since you already sent the information, including the breakfast, out.

    #3 sounds good…two words of advice: Entenmann’s Outlet!

    #3 and you can watch costco, walmart, etc for muffins and such on sale.  They freeze well so you could start looking for them a month out, collect coupons, whatever you need to do.

    Oh my! What rotten luck!

     

    I like the #3rd option. Our Golden Corral is not my first choice to hold ANY kind of gathering, but your chain may be much nicer than ours. I think it would be much easier to make finger foods and punch and host it yourselves.

     

    Good luck!
