You may not think of brunch as a totally creative option as far as a reception goes - bacon, toast, eggs? - but I dare you to think again. A brunch wedding reception has so much going for it...especially the food!
Not only can you get pretty creative with what you serve, you'll also save a ton o' money in food costs, appease those picky eaters (including the kiddos), and clear out your whole day for wedding festivities.
First off, let's talk munchies.
Imagine this: a waffle bar with topping options out the wazoo (maple syrup, whipped butters, whipped cream, fresh fruit, ice cream, nuts), biscuits with jam, stacks of pancakes dusted with powdered sugar, a doughnut cake, jars of cereal for the kids, make your own omelettes (cheeses, avocado, bacon, ham, mushrooms, sour cream, spinach, onions, salsa...), and the always loved bacon, scrambled eggs, and sausage links.

Three More Reasons Why a Brunch Reception Rocks
1. You're less likely to have drunken drama. I mean, who really feels like getting all boozed up and making a fool of themselves or someone else at 10 a.m.? And although alcohol is perfectly acceptable at an early reception, you can opt to cut it out completely and people won't miss it as much.
2. You can go formal or keep it casual. Just because the wedding fun starts earlier in the day doesn't mean you have to skimp out on evening elegance. Break out the fine china and table linens or stay simple with a few flowers in Mason jars. It's up to you!
3. You don't have to rush to get the perfect photos. Assuming the weather is cooperating, a morning reception offers beautiful natural light for a longer period of time, so you won't be rushing to get everyone together before the sun goes down.
