Benefits of a Daytime Wedding That You’ve Probably Never Considered

Tuesday, January 7th, 2020

We love a brunch wedding. There is something so unique and fun about a social event that takes place in the late morning. Yet, many couples haven’t considered this time of day for their wedding. Let’s talk about a few special touches that you can only find at a brunch wedding…

1. A Bloody Mary Bar

This oh-so-brunch-appropriate beverage can be a heap of fun at your reception. Just imagine all the toppings presented in sweet little serving pieces and the variety of flavors to suit anyone’s palette. Whether you include a bartender to assist or prefer a DIY bar, your guests will just love this fun beverage option.

2. You’ll Save Thousands on Lighting

Those beautiful Pinterest pictures of an evening reception in a ballroom? The uplighting alone will run more than $2k. Outdoor weddings in the evening will need string lights and walkway lighting…and even high-powered lighting in the parking area! Your entire lighting expense will be eliminated with a daytime wedding. Whether you are outdoors or in a ballroom with grand windows from floor to ceiling, the natural daylight will serve as the only lighting you need for the atmosphere of a daytime wedding. Don’t you just love saving a little money?

3. The Food

Oh, the food possibilities! Stacks of mini pancakes, a waffle bar, petite yogurt parfaits, doughnuts, fruit skewers, piles and piles of BACON! It’s hard to argue with the fact that breakfast food is the best food and what a star of the show (besides you and your fiancé!) it can be at your reception.

Take some time to mull this idea over to see if it’s for you. Maybe even do a little research at your favorite brunch spot this weekend… and have a Bloody Mary with some bacon for us!
