    @alexa62:  I think this sounds nice, I hate when people complain about what day/time your wedding is. Like I tried as hard as I could to accomdate people and they still had a problem with my wedding being on a friday. That works best for my FIs family and my family. If people care, they will be there!

    I think brunch is a GREAT idea- especially if you do not plan on having alcohol or much dancing! If I went to an evening wedding I would assume there would be a dj and alcohol. A brunch wedding would definitely seem more calm! Smile

    @alexa62:  I love brunch!  It is by far my favorite meal.  I truly believe that no matter what day/time/place you have your wedding, the people that really matter will be there come hell or high water, and they won’t care whether you have mimosas or not.

    I would be thrilled to attend a brunch wedding without issue. Yes, it would be nice if mimosas were served but that isn’t a deal breaker certainly!

    I would go. I dont know if I would stay as long as an evening wedding but I would definitely go. Personally, I dont love mimosas and I HATE bloody marys so it wouldnt bother me if they werent there.

    @alexa62:  I think brunch is a cute idea! I would totally go to a brunch wedding! (But I have to admit…I kinda agree with the other bees…I would kinda be hoping for some mimosas. LOL)

    If I love the couple then I’d attend a wedding no matter what time of day. I will say that I’d much rather attend a dry brunch wedding, than a dry evening wedding!

    have the wedding you want to have–alcohol-free, brunch, outside, inside…

     

    Although a few people might note that there is no alcohol, I don’t think that they’ll be seriously irritated by it–I wouldn’t be.

    @allyfally:  right? You have every other day to drink and you can go drink that night. Will it really be that big of a deal not to drink at the wedding?

     

    OP, i love brunch!!! I think it will be great!

    Brunch food is sooooooo good! Just have a variety of lighter foods and heavier foods for people who don’t eat much earlier in the day vs. those like me, who after we’ve been up for a few hours, can throw back bacon and eggs and pancakes and crepes like nobody’s business lol.

    If you are not drinkers, most of your friends and family probably know that, but have some creative drink choices (non-alcoholic, of course!) rather than JUST milk, OJ, coffee, tea, water?  I do admit I would be craving a mimosa or bellini but not having one would not be the make or break deal for me to come celebrate with you for sure!

    Also, as another PP pointed out, if most of your guests are local thats good!  I mean if it was really important to me and I had to get up at 5 am to get ready and drive, I would, or I would pay for a hotel room so that I could sleep in a bit and then get ready, but for other non-morning people, I can see it maybe being a factor for them.

    @alexa62:  Our wedding was just like how you wants yours.  We had a morning reception at 11am, photos between 11:30-12:30 while our guests had cocktails and coffee/tea/light snacks and the brunch buffet was ready at 1.  We had a jazz band and a photo booth, everyone left by 4 and I still get compliments on how much fun it was.  We then invited all 100 guests to our house for a catered dinner, but told everyone to change into their casual clothes and a lot of people stayed well past midnight.  Long day, but super relaxed.  Lots of fun! 

    My husband does not like attention, or dancing in public so this was definitely the way to go for us.  I don’t drink, and our friends aren’t party animals, most are older, married with kids who were invited so it suited us perfectly.  Do what’s right and best for you as a couple and don’t worry about what everyone else might like/not like.
