We recently attended a lovely brunch wedding and were delighted by the twist on the traditional wedding time and the breakfast-as-lunch food. The early morning “I do’s” followed by brunch made for the perfect Saturday.
What’s not to love about mimosas, donuts, and breakfast foods? A brunch wedding let’s you get super creative with the food and ambiance. Since it’s an off peak hour and morning weddings tend to be shorter, you might also be able to save money on your venue.
If you’re planning a brunch wedding (or even just brunch), the following morning wedding inspiration should get you off to the right start this morning.

Mimosas and brunch are a must together. Delight your guests with mimosa options by using different juices like peach grapefruit juice and lots of fresh fruit add-ins. Mimosa bars are easy for guests too: pick a juice, add champagne, and garnish with fruit!
Bloody Mary Bar
The classic Bloody Mary is a brunch staple and you can let guests serve up their own twist with a well-stocked Bloody Mary bar.
Coffee is required for any morning wedding since you’ll have a few guests who need it to get going. Liven up the crowd with lots of coffee options and mix-ins.
Breakfast casseroles, quiche, and more! With a brunch wedding you can serve up your favorite breakfast foods.
Mid-South brides should know that a good biscuit can make your morning, and a biscuit bar will make your guests swoon.
A cereal bar at a morning wedding will delight both adults and children in attendance. Have multiple milk options including almond milk to cater to everyone.
Donuts & Donut Wedding Cake

Donuts hit the right note for a brunch wedding. Several colorful varieties will ensure everyone leaves happy and can make for a stunning dessert arrangement.
What’s better than waffles at a brunch wedding? A waffle bar with waffles made to order and lots of toppings! You can also go the DIY route and let guests make their own waffles and add tasty toppings like fresh fruit, fruit compotes, nuts, flavored syrups, whipped cream, ice cream or more.

A pancake wedding cake or pancake wedding bar is the perfect counterpart to a mimosa bar and an excellent way to end your brunch wedding.
