@alexa62: is it brunch because of the food? because if you’re serving standard dinner food, wouldn’t it be lunch if you’re eating around 12 (only guessing because 12 if your ceremony is at 11). I’m j/w because our ceremony is at 10am, cocktail hour at 10:30, and food will be served probably around 12. I didn’t consider it a brunch reception…but maybe it is? We’ll have dinner-style food tho, so maybe that’s the difference.
That being said..brunch is delicious! There are so many excellent options for brunch, I would totally love that!…now I really want some pancakes and bacon lol

I love brunch! A brunch wedding with no alcohol would not be a deterant from me.

@alexa62: i love brunch. i wouldn’t care if there was no alcohol. i would suggest making sure that your brunch offers a large variety of items to choose from and not just bacon and eggs. does your venue offer an omlette station, waffle station, wide variety of fresh fruits and pastries?

@alexa62: I would happily go 🙂 Alcohol is totally not necessary. Just make sure you have a good variety of tasty food, OJ, and coffee/tea.

If there’s brunch food, I’d be in! Brunch is the best time of day!

We are doing a brunch wedding for our DW! However, we’re definitely having alcohol (mimosas, bloody marys, and irish coffees will all be make-your-own bars during “cocktail hour” ahead of the meal, and then we’ll have an open bar for during the meal and after for dancing).
Everyone who’s planning to go keeps saying how excited they are and how they’re happy it’s a different time of day – it’s something none of them have been to before. Plus, this means we get to go back to the beach house, take a nap, then go to an afterparty later in the night!

I love brunch. And it keeps most of my weekend free or allows me to travel Saturday and Sunday after the wedding limiting my time out of work. All positive.

@alexa62: Sounds great- I would love to go! It would be easier if you have guests with kids as the kids aren’t staying up late for the wedding dancing etc.

I’m not much of an alcohol drinker, so it wouldn’t bother me at all. I think a small, brunch wedding could be great.

It wouldn’t be my ideal, but my priority would be celebrating a big day in my friend’s/family member’s life, not having an awesome party to go to. So yes, I would go, regardless of whether or not I was thrilled about the brunch theme.

People invited to your wedding will likely know you’re not drinkers. In a situation like that, I’d rather attend a brunch or otherwise early wedding, honestly. Let me have my evening so I can go have a few drinks if I want on a Saturday night 🙂

Absolutely! I love brunch and brunch foods.

That sounds fun to me! I like to attend weddings that aren’t the exact same as every other wedding I’ve been too.

I would love it! I mean, I’d love to go to a friends wedding, period, but still. I do love brunch.
And all these people saying they need a mimosa or bloody mary, seriously? You dont go to a wedding because of alcohol. Sheesh.
