Why You Want A Brunch Reception

Why should you do a brunch-style reception instead of a late night dinner? It really all comes down to the amazing food. Sure, we’ve all been to LOTS of evening weddings, with only chicken on the menu. Why  not jazz it up a bit and go a completely different direction? Rather than Sunset ceremony, why not Sunrise?! Instead of specialty beers, why not specialty mimosas? You can even leave directly for your honeymoon that evening, instead of waiting until you recover from shutting down a 2 am reception. Grandma might even stick around past cake cutting since it’s not past her bedtime :P Here are just a couple of the amazingly delicious food options you can host for your brunch extravaganza & wow your guests!

To start, you can’t just have a traditional white cake with icing. Why not a Crepe Cake instead?! :D They come in all sorts of sizes & flavors, chocolate included!!

Or how about this scrumptious Italian pastry?

Or just throw caution to the wind and have doughnuts :)

Doughnut holes are just as legal!

Waffle Bar up next!

Or if you’re more of a pancake-person, that works too! Or even better, make it mini!

A Biscuit Bar just because :)
