What Is a Post-Wedding Brunch?

A post-wedding brunch is a casual gathering held the morning after the wedding. It offers a final opportunity to spend time with your guests before you head off on your honeymoon.

Purpose: It’s a great way to thank your guests for coming, especially those who traveled long distances, and to relive the highlights of your wedding day.

Atmosphere: The brunch is typically relaxed and informal, contrasting the formality of the wedding ceremony and reception.

How to Plan a Post-Wedding Brunch

1. Choose the Right Time and Date

– Timing: Schedule the brunch for the morning after the wedding, usually between 10 a.m. and noon, to allow everyone to rest and recover from the festivities.

Duration: Plan for a two—to three-hour event to give guests ample time to enjoy the meal and socialize.

2. Set Your Guest List

Intimacy: Decide whether to invite all wedding guests or just close family and friends.

– Communication: Communicate the brunch details on your wedding website or include an insert in your wedding invitation suite.


3. Select the Perfect Venue

– Convenience: Choose a convenient venue for both you and your guests. Cajun Mansion offers beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces for a cozy brunch.

– Capacity: Ensure the venue comfortably accommodates your guest list, providing seating and mingling areas.

– Variety: Offer a mix of sweet and savory dishes to cater to different tastes. Think classic brunch favorites like pancakes, eggs benedict, fresh fruit, and pastries.

Signature Drinks: Choose from a variety of beverages, from mimosas and bloody marys to coffee and fresh juices.

5. Personalize the Experience

– Themes: Incorporate a theme that complements your wedding or adds a fun twist. For example, a Southern-style brunch with Cajun cuisine can be a nod to your wedding’s location at Cajun Mansion.

– Decorations: Use simple, elegant decorations that reflect the relaxed atmosphere of the brunch. Fresh flowers, casual table settings, and light music can enhance the experience.

Etiquette FAQs

6. Who Hosts the Brunch?

– Tradition: Traditionally, the bride or groom’s parents host the brunch, but it’s perfectly acceptable for the couple to host or for a group of close friends or family to co-host.

7. Should There Be Formal Invitations?

– Invitation: While formal invitations aren’t necessary, informing your guests about the brunch is essential. Mention it in your wedding invitations or on your wedding website.

8. What to Wear?

– Attire: Encourage guests to dress comfortably and casually. As the hosts, choose a slightly dressier yet still relaxed outfit to stand out.

9. Should You Provide Entertainment?

– Entertainment: While not required, light entertainment such as background music, a photo slideshow from the wedding, or lawn games can add to the enjoyment.

10. Handling Leftovers

– Leftovers: Plan take-home containers for guests to bring home any leftover food. This can be a thoughtful touch and reduce waste.
