Post-Wedding Brunch hosted the morning after the wedding can be a terrific way to connect with out-of-town relatives and close friends after the chaos of the day before. I have found some great tips to help host the Post Wedding Brunch.
Who should host?
First of all, anyone is allowed to host a post-wedding brunch. However, the couple’s parents should be realistic about how tired they might be after such a momentous event. Even though it is a happy day, it comes with much stress. And sleep will probably not be aplenty. The mother-of-the-groom will not have time to clean her house and bake for many guests. The best option is probably for a relative of the couple (who isn’t involved in the wedding day activities other than attending as a guest) or a close family friend to host.
Where should you host the brunch?
Of course, you could host the post-wedding brunch at a restaurant or venue. But, if you have room, it can be much nicer to host it at your or a family member’s house. The goal is for everyone to be comfortable. Although using a restaurant makes it really easy for the host or hostess, it can also be very expensive.
What should the decor be?
The only good rule of thumb is that no wedding-related event ought to outshine or be more formal than the wedding itself. The wedding was probably noisy, full of small talk, and a bit too warm on the dance floor. In other words, only true extroverts will not be utterly exhausted. Post-wedding brunches should feel light and airy, and relaxed. Open your windows, clean off the patio, and play soft music in the background. A few simple floral arrangements would be fine to decorate a buffet table, but limit it to that. The decor for a post-wedding brunch should just be simple!
What should you serve?
You can serve whatever you want at your post-wedding brunch. Coffee will be a definite must. Serve something sweet and something hearty. Your slightly hungover friends will appreciate the choices. Although you are welcome to serve cocktails, make it simple with traditional drinks like mimosas or screwdrivers. A little “hair of the dog” might be what a few guests need.
