Wedding Reception Brunch

 

What type of wedding reception is right for you?  When you envision your wedding reception, do you dream of sunrise at a beautiful beach or the mist rising from the mountain tops?  If you are planning a sunrise wedding ceremony, you’ll need to develop a menu for your wedding reception brunch. 

Whether your wedding ceremony is on the beach or at the top of a mountain, you’ll want to serve your guests a wonderful breakfast or brunch after the ceremony.    Traditional wedding brunches include classics such as quiche, frittata and Eggs Benedict.  Setting up omelet and French toast stations are welcomed by your guests, along with a nice selection of fruits, muffins and breads.  If your budget allows, carving stations with ham, turkey or beef tenderloin will add a touch of luxury.  Drinks should include Mimosa’s, Bloody Mary’s, Bellinis and of course don’t forget great coffee, teas and juices.
