5 Creative Ideas for the Morning-After Wedding Brunch

5 Creative Ideas for the Morning-After Wedding Brunch

A morning-after brunch isn’t required and won’t necessarily even be applicable in some instances. But if you have a lot of people staying overnight for the wedding then organizing a little brunch the morning after the reception is a lovely idea. It gives you a chance to say your thanks to your guests and ensure they all leave with a smile on their face.

You don’t even need to make the brunch anything too complicated. With a few simple touches you can create a nice, relaxed atmosphere for your guests. Here are five such ideas to keep in mind.

1. An outdoor picnic
A really great way to make the brunch really relaxed is to have a picnic outdoors. Many of the best places to get married in Hudson Valley also offer nice outside areas for you to use. And organizing a picnic close to the hotel, or even in a relative’s backyard is a really nice idea. After your epic wedding reception some fresh air will do good for all of you!


2. Simple foods
As mentioned above, you don’t need to make the brunch too complicated. It is a good idea to keep it simple and just focus on providing a nice relaxing environment for your guests.


It is a good idea to go with simple, healthy food options. For example, you could serve breakfast favorites such as waffles with some fresh berries and cream. You can also include some tortillas or perhaps go with a hearty Spanish omelet.


3. Coffee or Juice bar
You should also make sure people have plenty of things to drink at the brunch. To make it all a bit more unique you could organize a coffee or juice bar for the event. People would be able to get specialized coffee and feel a little bit more energized after a big night of dancing. 


4. Relaxing music
There is also no reason why you can’t have some music played at your morning-after brunch. This is a nice way to set the right mood for the event and it can guarantee everyone leaves with a lovely memory of the whole wedding weekend.

You should discuss this option together with your wedding DJ, for example. Many good Hudson Valley wedding DJs can also attend the pre and post-wedding ceremonies for an additional fee, or recommend some live musicians as well.


5. Include a little hangover kit
You can also include a simple hangover kit for your guests to take with them when they leave. This is a nice idea after your awesome reception party and it will ensure everyone has a nice ride back home.


You can just provide your guests with a water bottle, a single aspirin and a little packet of crackers. And if you had families with children attending the wedding then you can provide a little something for the children as well. For instance, a little coloring book for the journey back home can be a nice, thoughtful idea.
