I love brunch! I often host a family brunch for my children’s birthdays instead of a more traditional birthday dinner and I treated my bridesmaids and the moms to brunch before my wedding. I think brunch showers and day after the wedding brunches are great too. So if you’re considering hosting any type of brunch in conjunction with your wedding, here are a few of my favorite tips/ideas for a quick and easy brunch everyone will love including you!
I always prefer to have a combination of hot and cold foods. You don’t have to go crazy with a ton of entrees and apps, just one or two hot and cold dishes. I like to do a ham which you can heat and leave on the table and a warm frittata then maybe bagels or muffins with cream cheese and jelly and a fruit salad.
Have a signature drink which can be alcoholic or non-alcoholic. I usually do some sort of drink with a champagne base like a mimosa with orange juice or a poinsettia with cranberry juice. Leave out the champagne, and you have your non-alcoholic drink.
I always like to have fresh flowers at brunch too. You can do small arrangements in mason jars or small milk/juice pitchers. Plain glass vases work perfectly fine too.
If you can’t host an after wedding brunch for guests, how about sending them home with a boxed brunch? I’m sure they’d love that too!
