With the beautiful weather of the summer, many couples consider hosting a wedding brunch rather than a formal dinner. The more casual the atmosphere makes guests feel at home and allow the bride and groom to not only relax after all of the excitement of the wedding, but save money on food costs as well. Considering hosting a brunch for your summer wedding? Here are just a few ideas Akron caterers suggest as to what you can serve:
A traditional brunch sampler. Including foods such as muffins, scones, bagels and pastries along with an omelet station is a substantial way to keep your guests happy. Adding a belgian waffle station with toppings can provide a fun way to celebrate.
Luncheon foods for a more formal brunch. Offering roasted turkey, seasoned new potatoes and an herbed rice dish is a light meal that works well for a sit down brunch. Hearty breads and a light salad can finish the meal.
Sandwich sampler. Tea sandwiches, miniature quiches and vegetable tarts are ideal for a brunch where guests can serve themselves. Wrap sandwiches are also a good option. Cookies, small tartlets and petit fours are a light, sweet way to end the meal.
Get out the grill. For couples who want a truly casual end to their ceremony, caterers say that a lunch of grilled chicken, sausages and hamburgers can really encourage guests to relax and enjoy the afternoon. Serve with seasoned hand-cut fries, homemade potato chips, and Carolina-inspired coleslaw.
Try Asian. If you and your fiancee love Asian food, then let that be the theme for your afternoon brunch. Steamed dumplings, chicken sate, fried rice and fortune cookies make for a fun, festive presentation.
Hosting a post-wedding summer brunch is a lovely way to end your special day. More casual and economical than a formal dinner, a wedding brunch can offer a variety of foods that your family and guests will enjoy. Interested in a wedding brunch for your special day?
