We were staying at the same hotel as many of our guests and just enjoyed having some breakfast with whoever happened to be eating the continental breakfast when we were. Most people just wanted to get back home, and I wanted to stay in my PJs! 🙂 No formal brunch is necessary!

I think I’ve been to a post-wedding brunch exactly once, out of probably 15-20 weddings attended. If you do one, that’s lovely, but it is by no means expected. We’re not doing one, though since we are staying in the same hotel as many of the guests, we may well visit with people in the morning (or maybe go out to breakfast somewhere).
Or, possibly, we will be so done with socializing and hosting that we’ll order room service and laze about in bed. We’ll see!

After a wedding night of fun and drinks? I’d rather just spend that time sleeping in.

I’d be happy to attend an out of town wedding that didn’t have a scheduled brunch. I attended an out of town wedding that had one the next morning and honestly we went just because we didn’t want to seem rude. After too much food, too much wine & dancing until the wee hours, I would have preferred to just sleep in and grab a bagel and coffee on the drive home. I don’t want to sound ungrateful- the bride and groom were thoughtful enough to provide a lovely buffet brunch, I was just too tired and over-full to properly appreciate it.

No. When I was planning our wedding a “friend” asked me what I was doing the following day for the guests and seems really shocked when I said nothing, but Darling Husband and I didn’t stay in the same house all the week before because we were in my home town and he was entertaining his Out of Town guests while I was at my parents’ house, and we wanted to lie in and make the most of our wedding night hotel. We went back to my parents’ place where some of our friends were staying and we opened our gifts and ate bacon sandwiches. It was great and we were able to really relax for the first time.

Wouldn’t bother me in the slightest and I’d probably prefer it. I’d much rather get a chance to get out and explore the town and new restaurants over having another wedding event to go to.

I would never expect a morning after brunch. Use your time and money on something better! Maybe something romantic for you and your new husband- like couples massages.

Im not really a fan of wedding events the next day, they almost always fall flat. If you do something, do it with your close family

No that wouldn’t bother me at all. In fact sometimes people can “overbook” their guests with wedding activities. Even with traditional hosted brunches, the bride and groom usually just pop in and out.
We are doing a Destination Wedding in Maui and just doing a welcome dinner and the wedding, we scrapped the brunch for budget too

kt1449: I think I’d actually prefer to have my own brunch with just my Fiance or my family, if we were at a different destination. It would give us the chance to explore the place on our own. Not an issue at all.

kt1449: As a guest, I wouldn’t want to get all done up and drive to a different hotel for breakfast, when the alternative would be sleeping in a bit then hitting the road for the 4 hour drive. Totally would not expect a brunch! If I was staying at the same property – sure it’d be nice to enjoy the (included) breakfast with everyone else at the same hotel, but I wouldnt expect anything beyond that.

100% skip! Unless godmother wants to pay for it she can shove it. (Or at least shut it!)

Send coffee and pastries to the campers. You will be treated as a goddess
