One of the first questions most newly engaged couples get is "did you set a date?". In all honesty, if you are planning on getting married within a year of your engagement, that is one answer you should have ASAP. There are many factors to consider when selecting your venue and one should be the time of day you would like to get married. A unique, and cost effective option is a brunch wedding and reception. You are also more likely to get the date you both want. The most popular months of the year to get married are May-October, so venues and vendors tend to book up fast for those times. However, if you choose to get married during the morning to early afternoon, you may have a better chance of not only booking the venue you want but vendors as well. Here a a few more reasons to consider a Brunch Wedding.
As I mentioned above, the most popular months to get married are May-October and the most popular times and days are Friday and Saturday evenings. The venue you like may be booked in the evening but maybe available mid morning to early afternoon. Another option is having it on a Sunday. These alternate options may even be a more cost effective as well.
From pancakes, sausage, eggs and biscuits to light sandwiches and finger foods, the food selection possibilities are endless. Don't forget Mimosas!
A brunch wedding is a great idea for smaller weddings. The setting is more intimate and allows for more interaction with family and friends.
If you want to make it a weekend event, you can get married on a Saturday morning and celebrate the rest of the weekend!
