Post-nuptial gatherings allow friends and family members to share time together and relax after a joyful yet hectic day of celebrating. Plan your perfect next day event by making sure to remember these four wedding brunch essentials.
While you may have invited dozens of friends and relatives to your wedding, reception, and dance, you may not mean to include all of them in your wedding brunch plans. You can keep the list selective and discreet by remembering to send out invitations for this specific post-nuptial event. The invitations should include all of the details of when and where the brunch is held as well as whether or not invitees can bring along a plus one.
You should also select a location that is convenient and roomy enough for your brunch gathering. Whether you hold it at your home, the home of your parents or in-laws, a local restaurant, or at a hotel, you should choose a place that everyone who is invited can find and get to easily the day after your wedding. At the same time, you should choose somewhere that is off the proverbial beaten path if you want to keep the brunch under wraps and out of sight from the rest of your wedding invitees.
While your guests will come to the brunch to share time with the newlyweds, they also will come for the food. The fare that you offer will probably be the star of the show particularly if your guests have not eaten since the wedding dinner.
If you wager that your guests might be hungover from the nuptial festivities, you might want to offer food and drinks that go down easily and fill hungry people’s stomachs. Selections like Kaiser rolls, similar to the products from Klosterman Baking Company, fresh fruit, tea, and shortbread can calm queasy stomachs and satisfy hunger pangs at the same time.
Thank You Tokens
You might have placed chocolate kisses or customized candies on your wedding reception tables for last night’s guests. However, you may want to bring along more sentimental tokens to say thank you to your friends and family members at the brunch.
Small gifts to say thanks to your parents, in-laws, bridesmaids, groomsmen, and others should be included in your brunch plans. You can lay them out on the brunch tables or host a small gift-giving session during the meal.
These four essentials will help your wedding brunch go off without a hitch. Remember them as you plan this post-nuptial gathering.
