Planning Your Morning-After Breakfast on a Budget

Monday, June 8th, 2015 | Filed under: Morning After Breakfast | author: By admin,    

Planning Your Morning After Breakfast on a BudgetIt’s become a new wedding Must to plan a breakfast or brunch for the morning after the wedding, treating guests to another delectable meal and a wonderful start to their travel-home day. In many cases, the family of the bride hosts this get-together, with the groom’s family hosting the rehearsal dinner – and in today’s free and personalized wedding trends, we’re also seeing both families plan this morning-after breakfast together.

While some families welcome the out-of-town wedding guests and the bridal party to their home for a morning-after breakfast, a self-hosted breakfast is not always the most budget-friendly plan. With a larger guest list, you will likely have a list of things to rent, plus the cost of food and drinks, and any décor you wish to arrange. When you choose for your morning-after breakfast to take place at a restaurant or at the guests’ hotel, you simply plan and show up to enjoy the celebration while the venue’s staff provides all necessary items and does all the work. And the cost of a well-planned breakfast or brunch at a dining establishment may not be much more than if you hosted (and worked!) at home.
