So you want to do something different where your food is concerned. Cupcakes are all over the place and sharing tables are pretty normal by now. Street food is everywhere and dessert tables are all the rage. But what about brunch?

Sweet and savoury, healthy and naughty, brunch is one of my favourite concepts. Think lazy weekend mornings, think casual dining, think a real treat.

If you think a brunch concept would work nicely for your big day (especially if you’re having an early ceremony or would like to have the ceremony during or after the party), here are some ideas on what to serve and how to decorate your wedding brunch reception.

Think buffet style, think lots of picking and piling your plate up. Think about creating a casual atmosphere where your guests can talk and get to know each other while they graze a whole range of delightful morcels.

Brunch takes buffets to another level. So you will need long tables, pretty plates, serviettes and cutlery to go with your wedding theme, tables and chairs where your guests can relax and chat with their food and lots of variety.

Fresh fruit, crispy bacon, eggs, smoked samon, a range of breads and even gateaux, cakes and pastries. And don’t forget the drinks – juice, water, coffee, tea and even a bit of sparkling wine. Perfect!

Perfect for an outdoor wedding, a brunch can sit nicely next to an outdoor altar and lets your guests flow casually from the ceremony to the reception.

And if a wedding brunch means casual dining, remember that your decoration and dress can also be casual. Or what about a city-style wedding (including a beautiful short wedding dress for the bride!) with a hotel brunch…gorgeous!

As for flowers, whether your colour scheme uses bright colours or pastels, always combine your flowers with elegant whites and ivories for that stylish, shabby chic touch.
